The world is a dangerous place. Acts of terrorism have become more common than not and home invasions are on the rise. John Browning’s 1911 is the greatest service pistol of all time. First adopted by the U.S. military over a century ago, it is still among the most trusted and time-tested designs available. Even now, it is still relied upon by the U.S. Marines, FBI Hostage Rescue Team, Los Angeles SWAT as well as countless civilians.
