As a sworn deputy and later a federal employee, it was incumbent upon those of us carrying firearms to qualify with those weapons, meeting the minimum standard as set by that agency or department.

Technically speaking, you could squeak by your in-service qualification with a barely-passing score. However, to the rest of the team you’d be considered a second-rate schmuck if you didn’t hit close to that perfect score. The boys might let you slide if you were down one or two points, but any more than that was considered pedestrian, and you’d pay the price of choking on a giant mouthful of humble pie.

4 1911s That Belong in Your Collection - #RobsFavorites

Posted by Team Springfield

Nov 15, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Every respectable gun enthusiast needs a collection of 1911 pistols. Not only is it a significantly important, historic gun, it is a still-relevant high performance design. Few things last as long as the 1911.  Fewer still are classic designs that keep up with or exceed more-recent models.

Since its development by John Browning in the early 1900s, it has been utilized by our US Military for World Wars, by LE agencies for protection of the people, by civilians for personal and home defense and recreation, and by competitors, both amateur and professional, in shooting competitions throughout the globe.  

But there are so many options - how does one choose?

Well let us help. We've created a small sampling of a few of #RobsFavorites -- Four 1911s that are definitely collection worthy and more importantly, shooting worthy.
