    OnSight Firearms Training will be hosting a 1911 OPERATORS Class on SUNDAY NOVEMBER 11, 2018.

    Howell's Gun Shop & Indoor Range - 81 West Gray Road, Gray, Maine


    Start time is 10:00am. Students are expected to arrive no later than 9:00am for set up and range safety briefing.

    Designed by John Browning, the M1911 is the best-known of his designs to use the short recoil principle in its basic design. The pistol was widely copied, and this operating system rose to become the preeminent type of the 20th century and of nearly all modern centerfire pistols. It is popular with civilian shooters in competitive events such as USPSA, IDPA, International Practical Shooting Confederation, and Bullseye shooting. Compact variants are popular civilian concealed carry weapons in the U.S. because of the design's relatively slim width and stopping power of the .45 ACP cartridge.

    This class will run the 1911 owner through a series of drills and techniques designed for 1911 platform. Emphasis will be placed on the specific parts and operation of the 1911 and it's safety systems.
