Why would anyone name a handgun after Trenton, New Jersey? Camden. Atlantic City, Wildwood and Asbury Park are more dangerous, but that’s not saying much. (A Trentonian’s odds of becoming a victim of a crime is one in 21.) A quick trip to Carolina Arms Group‘s website reveals that the gunmaker was inspired by The Battle of Trenton, where George Washington scored his first military victory. Yes but – why not name a new 1911 after a World War II battle where 1911’s were actually used? Anyway, all marketing starts with a great product, and CAG’s new 1911’s look like the business. And costs a bomb. Make the jump for the press release . . .
