The first post on this subject provided some excellent nominations. Some of the nominations, however, were from people who obviously deserved to be beaten about the head and shoulders with one of the terrifically cool batons sold by Arizona Ironwood. There were 14 finalists, but, to simplify matters, I have combined some entries. For example, we had nominations for the Colt 1911, the Kimber 1911, and the Springfield Armory 1911. All of these are essentially the same handgun, so I've simply put it as Model 1911 .45ACP and omitted the manufacturer.
