You may not recognize the name, General Austin Miller-
But, he’s currently the commander of the war in Afghanistan.
He’s a stern son-of-a-gun who’s a very decorated soldier.
Some quick facts about him include-
-Graduate of West Point
-He’s fought in Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, and Somalia
To this day, he’s always got a pistol strapped to his hip even though several bodyguards surround him at all times.
One of the pistols that he carries is Colt-1911.
According to an Army spokesman, Colt-1911, the General carries is an Army issue to him in 2009.
I’m a massive fan of Colt-1911, and I own several of them.
They are such a natural pointing gun that it’s no wonder so many elite units have carried 1911s over the years.
Springfield makes the Colt- 1911 that you’ll find on my hip.
The second gun that the General sometimes carries on his hip is a much more modern gun, the Glock.
Everyone is familiar with Glocks and how durable they are.
I believe it was Larry Vickers who said something such as, “If you treat your gun like you treat your lawnmower, get a Glock.”
In other words, the Colt- 1911 does require a bit more maintenance than a Glock.
But either way, you can’t go wrong with either of these guns that the General carries.
I own both 1911s and Glocks and think they should be a part of your gun collection.
Whatever guns you own or buy, do take care of them, even if it’s a Glock
