The Colt Model 1911 has a really long lifespan.
I can remember when I first qualified on the 1911 while in the military. This may sound cheesy, but it was a huge accomplishment for myself with no pistol shooting experience at the time.
What I also love was seeing those old WWII training footage back in the day. Take a look.

WW2 1911 .45 CAL Pistol Training

This educational video demonstrates older (1944) techniques on how to properly use a 1911.

If you notice this footage is very similar to the FBI pistol training and utilizing Col. Rex Applegate combat shooting methods for close quarter combat.
Maybe I’m just old school but I like the tradition that these bad boys 1911 have gone through.
Hats off to History TV Facebook for posting these time capsule footage of such an iconic weapon.
