Brief overview of the Colt .45 ACP Series 80, including closeup video segments, and target shooting. The era of the 1911 .45 ACP semiautomatic handgun on the TNOUTDOORS9 channel begins with this video. I have owned handguns since 1987 but until this point had never owned one in the 1911 platform. Handling the 1911 is an absolute pleasure; reliability and accuracy out of the box are spot-on. Recoil is quite controllable for fast, accurate follow-up shots.

I could not have gotten too far into 2011, the 100th anniversary of the 1911 platform, without acquiring a 1911 handgun. The Colt was my first choice, with the Model 80 or 70 Series at the top of the list, Colt Commander being next. After Colt, Springfield would have likely been my next option. This gun was acquired new from a dealer for $799. At the date of this video production, Colt 1911’s, in particular the Series 80, are difficult if not impossible to locate in my area. Mine was purchased from an East TN dealer exhibiting at a Nashville-area gun show.

Shooting segments are with 230 gr FMJ at steel targets from 40 feet up to 55-60 yards.

This firearm will be used for a variety of purposes on the channel, including ammo tests. I have absolutely no plans to make any modifications to this handgun; the setup will remain as you see it in this video.

All shooting was performed safely on private property, in my backyard.
