I love 1911s. I would never have one as a carry gun; the trigger’s too light and the safety’s too safe. But nothing looks, feels and shoots like a proper 1911. At the risk of incurring the wrath of the politically correct amongst us (both of them), the John Moses Browning-designed 1911 is a man’s gun. Well, it is when it’s chambered as JMB meant it to be: in .45. Anything less is, at best, odd. At worst, an abomination. And so I have to ask: is the new Browning 1911-22 an non-ironic irony? In other words, why dear God why? Oh right. Marketing. Money. Ammo cost. Carry on. But before you do, please tell me if my misgivings are misguided. What’s your take on this .22 caliber .45?
