Growing up in the 1990’s I feel like was a blessing and a curse as a gun enthusiast. Us darn kids got to grow up never knowing the struggle of watching all of favorite new rifles turn their beautiful wooden furniture in for synthetics. We weren’t blown away by Gaston’s “plastic” gun. But we didn’t ever truly gain a respect for what the 1911 did for auto-loading handguns. I literally can’t shoot a revolver, where I try to grip the gun is way too high. I can’t imagine heading to the range without a mag-loader and the majority of handguns I’ve owned have required a trigger pull to remove the slide . . .
