Syd\u2019s 1911 Notebook
From rec.guns: "Is the 1911 .45 an outdated design?"

Of course the 1911 is an outdated design. It came from an
era when weapons were designed to win fights, not to avoid
product liability lawsuits. It came from an era where it was
the norm to learn how your weapon operated and to practice
that operation until it became second nature, not to design
the piece to the lowest common denominator. It came from
an era in which our country tried to supply its fighting men
with the best tools possible, unlike today, when our fighting
men and women are issued hardware that was adopted because
of international deal-making or the fact that the factory is in
some well-connected congressman's district.

Yes, beyond any shadow of a doubt, the 1911 IS an outdated
design....and that's exactly what I love about it.
