The 1911 has survived virtually unchanged for 100 years and is still the preferred sidearm for many law enforcement and Special Forces units. It is considered to be an expert’s firearm and takes many years of practice to master. 1911 shooters are almost fanatical in their love for John Browning's classic firearm. Understanding the skills and techniques required to operate your 1911 is imperative. Anyone who is serious about 1911 should not miss this course!
