“Man” Inquires About 9mm 1911 On Gun Forum – Gets Ridiculed

St. Cloud, Minnesota resident Edgar Johnson had no idea what kind of a Pandora’s box he was opening with his post on the Facebook group 1911 Addicts.

Justifications…

Recently retired, Edgar says he was “looking for an inexpensive hobby” and that being on a fixed income had really “limited his options”.

Faced with the choice of having no 1911, a gun he had wanted since watching The Wild Bunch as a child or having one that he could afford to shoot in 9mm he decided to ask the group – a group that was full of experts whose opinions he trusted.

The reaction wasn’t what he expected. Various posters were quick to point out that only women shoot 9mm, that John Moses Browning designed the gun for 45 ACP, and that he would most likely be kicked out of the group if he did the unthinkable…

Banished…

Not realizing his mistake until it was too late he unfortunately was kicked out of the group. Feeling betrayed by his 1911 brethren he gave up on his dream altogether. He eventually decided on a Sig Sauer P320 after finding a kindly group of enthusiasts on Facebook in a group called P320 UNIVERSE.

Consequences…

Edgar eventually split from his wife, the P320 and the 9mm changing him in ways he couldn’t imagine. He now spends his time in the alleys of St. Cloud, turning tricks for a few dollars to support his 9mm habit…
