Final Score: 99/100
Yes, I have recently grown a mustache. It’s pretty great, reminiscent of the glory days of cop mustaches. Somehow, it’s granted with me extraordinary powers as well. Allow me to explain.
Time to start a new 1911 test!
I made a video that has already hurt some butts, because apparently people actually like the Honor Guard, even though it’s poo.
I have been absent from youtube for some time, and absent from Gun Nuts for even longer. I’ll spare ya’ll the boring details, but this image is a big part of why I was gone:
But anyway, enough of that. Today I wanted to talk about an interesting revelation I had while I was taking breaks from doing mountains of paperwork in my office. A friend of mine linked to an old, and I do mean old youtube video of mine where I’m shooting a Glock, and it sort of got me thinking about “what guns do I shoot the best?”
In this video, I take a look at one of my favorite Hollywood tropes – firing two guns at once. But instead of just playing around, I take a hard look at whether or not it’s more effective than firing one gun with two hands on it.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m a huge believer in WML for defensive handguns, especially guns that are going to be used for home defense. In today’s video, I spend some time on the range working on manipulating the light in the dark and incorporating challenging into my training.

Things that annoy me: in Hollywood movies and TV shows when they shoot dudes in the middle of the forehead. So I made a video explaining why.
Final score: 81/100
-10 points for failing the 10-8 Performance Test, -5 points for the extractor being out of tension from the factory, and -4 points for the 4 failures it had that weren’t ammo related.
As an interesting side note, of the 2001 rounds fired, over 1200 were CapArms Superior Range Ammo in .45 ACP, which experienced zero failures of any type. Interesting.
As I wrap up a year of testing 1911s and get back to testing all manner of guns, I realized I needed a replacement for the 10-8 Performance 1911 Test. The 10-8 Performance Test is designed to test the extraction and primary function of the 1911 to ensure it’s suitable for duty. I was specifically cautioned by the dudes at 10-8 that it wasn’t for modern semi-autos, so I wanted to come up with my own protocol for “modern” defensive pistols. I debuted the test today in this video about the new PX4 Storm Compact Carry:
