NOW AVAILABLE IN 9MM
For those that demand a no-nonsense approach to their defensive grade pistol, the new Operator® 1911 in 9mm stands ready to deliver. Crafted on the solid foundation of a forged frame, slide and barrel, the Operator 1911 builds on the century-plus of service behind the gun and adds the benefit of the ever-popular 9mm round. Tactical Rack rear/tritium front sights, G10 grips, ambi safety, two 9-round magazines with bumper pads, forward cocking serrations, and more combine to make the Operator 1911 from Springfield Armory a must-have tool for self-defense.
It has been said the 1911 is the most perfectly designed pistol ever made. If you might question that, just consider the fact that today in the year 2023 people still talk about the legendary trigger, ergonomics and feel of a 1911. By my quick count, that’s more than 110 years. With that in mind, it’s almost crazy how popular they still currently are. Looks like John Moses Browning knew what he was doing.
As I write here from Texas, we are extremely saddened by the murder of children by a deranged individual. It is also sickening that politicians immediately jump on to use this tragedy to further a anti-second amendment agenda. We live within a few miles of Uvalde, and Uvalde is nearer to the border than we are. This doesn’t seem to be a crime related to the border crisis or to foreign terrorism. It is a reflection on our culture of death none the less. My first thought upon grieving this incalculable loss of children and their distraught families is that God too is grieved. And that this is just part of His grief over the thousands of children killed every day in the womb. He grieves for them like we grieve for the young children of Uvalde. Only we don’t grieve as a nation for those slain in the womb.
My first question is: where was the security? Our schools are nearly required to have safety precautions on who can enter a building. They either have a security pass through or a security guard… unless the school district chose not to do so. In Texas, our teachers can also be armed and carry, if they are trained and permitted by their districts. Unfortunately, we may have to become like Israel, where everyone, including teachers, have mandatory training and must be armed because of the constant threat of terrorism.
The cry to end firearms ownership also sounds very hollow here in Texas where our borders are being overrun with cartel members, drug dealers, child sex traffickers, and gang members. These groups are not going to give up their guns. If the government cannot control illegal immigration, drug smuggling, cartels, gangs and sex trafficking, what makes you think they could control guns and guns smuggling? The only people left without guns will be the citizens, who will not be able to defend themselves.
Having every citizen armed and trained may not have stopped the tragedy in Uvalde or prevent tragedies elsewhere, but there is evidence that where citizens are armed, the carnage is and can be stopped before it becomes a mass shooting event.
We will continue to uphold your right to bear arms, as the only defense against lawlessness and terrorism is a well armed citizenry.
Pray for the victims and their families.
Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted because they were no more – Jeremiah 31:15

Is the chaos in the streets, threatening assaults at restaurants in Pittsburgh, defunding of police, the lack of civility, and racist accusations on both sides making you feel like the country is coming unglued? Are the extended quarantines and business shutdowns causing you to feel like the country is in a downward spiral? Knowing that the average time it takes for the police to respond to an emergency call is about 7 minutes, (assuming they are able to respond at all) do you feel safe? There is no law against personal protection. Although we strongly advise you to take self-defense courses and extensive firearms safety training, we have the right as citizens to defend ourselves and our loved ones from imminent threats.
