Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #201...

What's a 5" all-steel, single-action, single-stack .45ACP pistol with a crisp factory three-and-a-half pound trigger pull that's not a 1911? A Smith & Wesson Model 745, that's what. 

There's something about this pistol for everyone to hate on, as well as a lot that's pretty cool.

The trigger is probably way too light for toting purposes, and I'd definitely want a holster that was designed to pin the safety in place.

(I'd posted this one before in Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #160, but that photo was poorly lit and taken with the somewhat disappointing Leica D-Lux 3, to boot. This time around, with better natural lighting and the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 lens on the old 40D, it has a bit more pop.)
