1911

The United States Army officially adopted the John Browning designed Colt Automatic Pistol on this day in 1911. It’s still in production, and is being used as a duty weapon for some units and some law enforcement agencies. Hard to beat a classic.

  1. A coworker admitted to me today that she recently swapped her father’s .45 and her grandmother’s derringer for a 9mm. God I hope it was an April Fool’s joke.
