discovering1911.com is my attempt at sharing the information I discover or learn about the 1911 pistol platform. The vast network of information about the 1911 give me much to discover and I can only imagine what someone new to the 1911 would be thinking. A beginner would be overwhelmed, as I was. Maybe this blog can help them.

I would expect to cover topics about the gun itself, DYI gunsmithing, competition (IDPA and USPSA, primarily), as well as self-defense.
