EP78 of The John1911 Podcast

This is a little but different version of the normal podcast. As you may be aware, we are still building out the new range facilities. So while Freeze and I were headed back in, we recorded an episode in the truck.

With all the accompanying distractions and noise one might expect when driving the Pork-Chop-Express on a Friday evening.


  • Range Build-out Update
  • The Hudson H9 is shipping.
  • Some fool is mud testing the Hudson H9.
  • More proof the 1911 industry will collapse: $10k Ed Brown.
  • We have solved the steel target stand problem.
  • Freeze closes down a liquor store for USMC B-day.
  • The positive side of breaking guns.
  • What we will and won’t do for views.

  • Yes, really. Someone out there is taking a Hudson H9 and dropping it in the mud to see what happens. On one level I get it. I do. I really, really do.

    But on another level, are we really looking at qualifying a pistol as “duty ready” or are we being trolled by the biggest know-nothings in the industry? Not being ugly. Not attacking anyone personally.

    But at some point people are going to have to step back from some of this kind of content and ask, “What are we really doing here? Why are these people making videos showing this? And even more importantly, why are we watching it?”

    Now speaking for myself so I can with some authority. If the internet is legacy. If the internet is forever, do I want the high water mark of my firearms ability to be a 5-gallon bucket and a muddy gun? How many years does one have to work to accomplish that?

    Food for thought. Nothing more.
