IF YOU CAN’T BEAT ‘EM…

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - THE ARMORY -

As ev­ery se­ri­ous shoot­ing afi­cionado knows, there are at least a cou­ple dozen man­u­fac­tur­ers of­fer­ing some form of M1911 pis­tol these days. Some are ex­cel­lent, some are medi­ocre, but none are aw­ful. Yes, “Olde Ugly,” as the M1911 has been known for over 100 years, is still with us, still go­ing strong, and con­tin­u­ing to emerge in the widest va­ri­ety of con­fig­u­ra­tions of any hand­gun in cur­rent pro­duc­tion.

In­ter­est­ingly enough, though Colt is no longer the sole or even pri­mary man­u­fac­turer of the M1911 de­sign, many of its long-time com­peti­tors—Smith & Wes­son, SIG, Ruger, Rem­ing­ton—now of­fer their own ver­sions, prov­ing un­equiv­o­cally that not only is im­i­ta­tion in­deed the sin­cer­est form of flat­tery but also that if you can’t beat ‘em…join ‘em!
