    I've always loved the 1911, and I find it interesting that the date of our greatest tragedy and the beginning of the war on terror shares the exact same digits? One more reason for me to carry my Kimber (Pro CDP)!!

    I saw 1 (one) Porsche 911 on my way to the gun store yesterday. Maybe the ghost of J.M. Browning was trying to send me a message.

    Alot of things share the number "1911". Go google it. You'll get everything from computer parts to clothes to guns.

    Coincidence. Stop thinking so much.

    Once, I seen a whole list of coincidences between 9/11 and other things. I think to many pewople have too much time on their hands. The only one I'l believe is the connection between 9/11 and 911 emergency telephone number. I'm not even sure about that.

    Plus, the mass of an electron is 9.11*10^-31kg. Tell me that's a coincidence.

    I'm more interested in what we are all going to do when the 100th aniversary of the 1911 rolls around. It's only 6 more years. We need to have some kind of birthday party.

    True, but let's examine this aspect even a little further.

    1911 in binary is 11101110111

    There are 3 groups of 1's.
    There are 6 11's (the middle 1's are used twice.)
    There are 9 1's in all.

    3 .... 6 .... 9

    All are multiples of 3! Coincidence?? I don't think so!!

    The answer is quite obvious even to the meanest intelligence. It explains why the 3-shot Mozambique is so effective with a 1911 pistol!
