The 2017 NRA Carry Guard Expo


The 1911-380 gets praise from NRA's America's First Freedom editors.

The editors of the NRA's Americas First Freedom magazine gave high praise after getting a tour of the Browning booth during the Carry Guard Expo. Browning's Paul Thompson provided details on the huge number of variations availble for the most compact, easy to shoot 1911 in the world today -- and the only 1911s with carrying the inventors name. 

The final critique of the model they liked best was quite positive,  "All things considered, the Browning mini 1911s are worthy candidates for carry application, especially for small-statured shooters or if a manual safety is a high priority."
