Here is a really, really comprehensive review by Nutnfancy of the Taurus 1911 in .45ACP. Based on the 100 year old design of John Moses Browning, the 1911 is an iconic handgun that has stood the test of time. It’s not a small gun and it’s not a simple gun, but it is an elegant design from an era where it was clearly decades before its time. Taurus has made its own tweaks to the original design just like most other manufacturers while keeping the foundations of the 1911 intact. Nutnfancy talks to many of the features and drawbacks of the 1911 depending upon intended use. He calls this POU or Philosophy of Use. If you take the time to watch this video you might be adding a 1911 to your wish list, I did. Check out the Taurus 1911 here!
