Despite all of the things I’ve done in the world of guns and reviews, I have never actually reviewed a firearm.
Through a series of unexpected and pretty cool events, my friend, John Johnston, got me in touch with some people at Wilson Combat and before I knew it I was sending FFL information to them and I got this beauty in the mail for a 90 day T&E.
I’m really excited but also a little nervous! What do I know about reviewing guns? I shoot them, sure, but what do people want to know about a gun before they buy it? I guess I could ask them in what I want to know about a gun before I buy it but this gun is going to be a bit unique.
It’s a 1911, obviously. It’s also 9mm, has a 4″ barrel and a steel frame that makes it pretty heavy but I’m actually excited to carry it, too.
For those of you who’ve been following me for several years you know that I started on 1911s and have a special place for them in my heart. I’m looking forward to what surprises carrying and shooting a 1911 will have for me.
