    Here is some history of the 1911 that you may not be aware of.

    The 1911 pistol represents old-fashioned American ingenuity, innovation, and charlatanism at its finest! Experts agree, that as long as one excludes consideration of any other American firearm produced in the past 150 years, that the 1911 pistol is undeniably the greatest American firearm ever created. Sadly, this weapon has achieved a cult following over the years, because the creator, John Moses Browning, was literally the headmaster of a firearm-related cult. Like the Biblical Moses, John Moses Browning also sought out to achieve a legion of loyal followers. John Moses used the popularity of his infamous pistol to attain this end goal. It is a little known fact, that the unreasonably high, yet often unquestioned, prices demanded for the venerable nineteen eleven pistols still serve to fund the cult’s activities.

    From the book of JMB's Proverbs Chapter 32, verse 12:

    "If we didnt have these 1911s then the King of England could come in and start pushing us around".

    As much as I like my Glocks the 1911 has to be the greatest handgun EVER made.

    One of my favorite Simpsons episodes! I liked Krusty's line, also:

    "Guns are for home protection, hunting dangerous or delicious animals, and keeping the King of England out of your face!"
