I went shooting with a friend yesterday, and he brought the 1911 (not A1) that his dad gave him many years ago. The gun was made almost 100 years ago, and it tore a ragged hole in the paper target. Granted, it was only at 7 yards, but I was literally astonished that the gun shot so accurately. Better than the S&W Model 617 I brought with me (although that gun is pretty accurate as well.) Sorry I don't have a target to show. What an awesome gun that 1911 is.
