Since I have left the good ole USAF, I have found myself having more gun conversations then I could imagine. (not on purpose, just kind of walked into them). Any way, a common thing I run across is the amount of people who honestly believe that 1911's are unreliable. Now, I have put my fair share of rounds through my 1911's and have friends and family that shoot them in competition. Unreliable is the last word I would use to describe a quality 1911(There are over 50 manufacturers of this platform, and I do know some of them might as well be boat anchors). So I was curious as to what my truck brethren thought. I know this group has LEOs, military, civilians, IT guys, and even a couple Prius owners.....so I figured this would be a good place to go.
