In the Barber's Chair: The Model 1911

I have decided to inaugurate an occasional series of posts featuring the wit, wisdom and advice of my barber. I'm calling the series, "In the Barber's Chair."

My barber posted the following on a gun forum in response to the question, "Why do people like the 1911?"

The one uncle sugar issued me got me out of a couple tough scrapes. The one I bought when I got out kept me warm on a lot of cold,dark nights while on uniform patrol. Now that I'm a barber,we spend time together as old,trusted firends. Like me,it's not new,pretty,or cool. Like me,it is old,heavy,has lots of wear marks,and is rock-solid dependable,and most young people don't understand either one of us!
