From rec.guns:"Is the 1911 .45 an outdated design?" 
Of course the 1911 is an outdated design.It came from anera when weapons were designed to win fights, not to avoidproduct liability lawsuits.It came from an era where it wasthe norm to learn how your weapon operated and to practicethat operation until it became second nature, not to designthe piece to the lowest common denominator.It came froman era in which our country tried to supply its fighting menwith the best tools possible, unlike today, when our fightingmen and women are issued hardware that was adopted becauseof international deal-making or the fact that the factory is insome well-connected congressman's district.Yes, beyond any shadow of a doubt, the 1911 IS an outdateddesign....and that's exactly what I love about it.Rosco S.Benson
