No offense to Sheriff Jim Wilson, but I have to ask: what if the Ford Mustang still had a crank in the front? Wouldn’t that be a great feature? After all, it would sure help to start the car, if the battery died.
Yes, that’s still the argument we hear from 1911 enthusiasts about the grip safety. In the latest entry, Sheriff Jim admits this feature was added so that we could use the gun at full gallop on a horse.
Someday, someone will design a good .45 without a grip safety. Maybe it even holds more than 7 rounds.
