Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

Beth from Smoke 'n Gun in Waukegan has the Browning Black Label 1911 .380 ACP in stock



The following is a Facebook message from Beth at SNG:

"Hi everyone - this is Beth. I can't tell you how excited I am to share this with you! Back in January, I went to a shoot sponsored by one of our distributors. I shot dozens of firearms that day, but had a definite favorite: the Browning 1911 .380acp pistol. I liked it so much that I ordered 6 of them direct from Browning, but haven't received a single one. Until today!
Those of you who know me understand that I am a relatively new shooter. This gun was flawless for me. This pistol looks like a miniature 1911 and it fit my hand perfectly, unlike a full size 1911. The 5 inch barrel makes the recoil manageable. While a bit long for concealed carry, it was very light. The sights were great - I was dead on with every shot the first time I fired this gun (the video was my second time shooting it and the end of the day - I was a bit tired). Plus it has the well known quality of a Browning.
We received 3 of the Black Label Pro model, complete with night sights. I encourage you to stop in and check out this gun. I've been waiting so long for this and can't wait to show it off!"






Seriously, this 1911 .380 looks to be a really cool pistol.
