For all the wonderful times I had shooting 200gr Round nose bullets at brown targets. You made me feel proud carrying you by my side, you helped me win my first major IDPA match, and you provided peace of mind to my family and I for the past two years.
Today marks the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, Model 1911 by the United States armed forces. John Moses Browning’s design stood the test of time and to this date, is the most used, most fired, most copied pistol design in the modern world.
I’m glad to own two of them and will gladly own more in the next few years.
Happy 100th Anniversary buddy!
ps. Incidentally, today also marks the day the HB1016 bill for Suppressor use passed in Washington state allowing legal owners of suppressors to use them anytime they wish. Awesome!
