I was asked to compose an article about the new Springfield "Professional FBI" model 1911 in .45 ACP pertaining to practical application in the field and not just file another technical evaluation or "street" usage article. So I decided to do a hunting piece from the stand point of how would the gun work as a sidearm for a hunting guide, rancher, cowboy, etc. in the field.
Date - July 30-31, 2005 Place - Southwest of Mason, TX Temp - up to 99, clear starting out changing to overcast with heavy thundershowers in the afternoon Gun - Springfield "Professional FBI" model 1911 in .45 ACP Ammo - Corbon 230 gr. hollow points Range - 35-40 yards Shot placement - straight on as the ram was coming toward me and looking right at us
For those of you who notice such things, yes, that is a very light colored shirt. My first set of clothes had gotten soaked one of the rain storms that produced some very vivid entertainment for us while we were on the top of one of the hills trying to hide under a low rock outcropping. After all mud on the face and sticks in the hair doesn't make for good photos, and the first thing on top in my bag when we got back to the truck to change was this shirt.
Denvas Keep the wind in your face and the sun at your back and they will never know you are there until they hear the z-i-n-g of your shot!
