An evening pause: As this year is the 100th anniversary of the M1911 pistol, probably the most popular pistol ever made, here is the part one of a four part documentary telling the story of the man who designed it, John Moses Browning.

    Browning was a genious, and the fact the 1911 he designed is still not only the basic design template for most current semi-auto pistols, the 1911 itself is still one of the most popular pistols on the market, Not bad after 100 years in a market where folks are REALLY not tolerant of seconud best equipment.
