That article must be 30 years old. Givens hasn't carried a 1911 for as long as I've known of him.The host was Tom Givens. THAT day he was not carrying a 1911 but he usually does. In Tom's words " My primary handgun every single day, 365 days a year, is a lightly customized 1911." http://www.sightm1911.com/lib/other/why_the_m1911.htm I am not so sure this guy isn't biased. The "Clueful" carry all sorts of stuff.
