The Gun Behind the 1911 Holster
The 1911 Colt 45 was first produced in 1911, hence its name, in response to the U.S. military's need for reliable self-loading weapons. The revolvers in use at the time were unreliable in damp and humid conditions, and some soldiers began asking for higher-powered weapons that could stop enemies faster. When the US Army asked for submissions for a semi-automatic pistol designs several companies applied. John Browning's 1911 Colt 45 won the competition when it displayed the ability to fire up to 6,000 rounds and then withstand being submerged in water without affecting performance. The basic 1911 Colt 45 design (chambered for .45 ACP ammo) was so successful that it was used by U.S. Armed Forces until 1985 before being replaced by more modern side arms and handguns. Along with Colt, manufacturers Les Baer, Ed Brown, Wilson Combat, Taurus, and Smith & Wesson all produce versions of the 1911.
All holsters, including 1911 holsters, serve the same purposes, but come in a variety of types and styles, including outside the waistband (OWB), inside the waistband (IWB), shoulder holsters, sling holsters, belly bands, pocket holsters, groin holsters, ankle straps or boots, thigh holsters, and cross-draw belt holsters.
