Currently, my EDC is .45acp in a 1911. I love my 1911, Smith & Wesson did a great job. However, in the future my EDC will be 10mm in my NEW handgun. Which brand of handgun you might ask? I haven't figured out what the name of my firearms manufacturing business will be or the model name yet. If you have any ideas for a name, let me know.
Here's what my NEW handgun will be:
10mm or any other high pressure cartridge (.45super, .357sig, 9mm major, etc.)
novel recoil and gas operating system
unusually low bore axis
fully adjustable pistol grip; replaceable side, backstrap panels and more
optics ready and more
modular dust cover
My NEW handgun will bring together two main trends in the firearm industry, lightweight materials and more powerful cartridges, into an easily carried EDC platform anyone can shoot. Better mitigation of recoil is the key to this advancement. By changing the manner in which recoil is transmitted to the shooter's hand, this becomes possible.
Browning's recoil operating system, an undeniable masterpiece, can be and should be surpassed. It has served us all very well for over a 100 years. But I believe Browning is disappointed that nobody has yet moved the state of the art beyond his work. I'm prepared to take on that considerable challenge!
