Morgan, UT –-(Ammoland.com)- The Model 1911 .45 Automatic Pistol is the world’s most respected handgun, and has been designated by many authorities as the finest service pistol design of all time.
The Browning 1911 was yet another revolutionary gun by one of the greatest gun designers of all time, John Moses Browning, the founder of today’s Browning Arms Company.
For example, in his 1930 book, (recently republished by Wolfe Publishing Co., Prescott, Ariz.), J. Fitz Gerald has a photo of himself using a two-handed hold that, at least superficially, resembles the Weaver stance. and the officer will find he can shoot faster and with more accuracy after a run if the arm is held in this manner," he advises.
The next year a deputy sheriff named Jack Weaver shocked everyone by winning decisively while holding his revolver in both hands, and handgunning was changed forever.
Weaver was far from being the first pistolero to use both hands.
