posted on February 2, 2018
SIG Sauer commemorates the greatness of our American heritage with its special series of "We The People" handguns, particularly this 1911 chambered in .45 ACP that includes a number of highlighted features.

A number of the stand-out elements on the SIG Sauer "We The People" pistol call out elements of Americana, including specially designed grips that include 50 stars to represent every state in the union. The gun also includes a unique tumbled finish, along with "1776," "We The People" and 13 stars engraved into the top of the slide to represent the original 13 colonies that fought for independence from Great Britain.

The Gas Pedal Drill

Training yourself to shoot better is the result of developing a higher skill level upon which you may rely. The higher your skill level, the greater your odds of performing well when they are called upon. Greater skill is born from greater control; the greater the control, the better the performance.

Your Go-To Move

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.
