Bill Wilson's Compact 1911 and My Grandfather's Cheap Pocketwatch

Bill Wilson defends compact 1911s, and gets attention from one of my favorite blogs.

For years, my grandfather carried extremely-cheap, windup, grocery-store pocket watches. On a daily basis he would reset his watch. As a "tinker's" gun, it seems like the compact 1911 falls into the same category of user/tool interaction.

It seems that a purveyor of highend 1911s and those who deride his wares are overstating their cases, but ...

My grandfather knew how to accommodate the shortcomings of the tool he selected and enjoyed whatever advantages he found. Any gun must be so employed to be useful, whether it's shaped like a brick or eats like a runway model.
