Military Channel’s newest show, “Triggers: Weapons that Changed the World,” starts on Wednesday, Nov. 30, and from the looks of the episodes we’ve screened, it should be very popular with anyone who is interested in guns, their history and their applications.
Hosted by Wil Willis, a veteran with the rather rare accomplishment of being both an Army Ranger and an Air Force Pararescueman, the show kicks off with a look at the history of military handguns, particularly the .45-caliber models in American military service. From the Single Action Army to the 1911 and other guns chambered for .45-caliber cartridges, the episode airing on Wednesday features expert commentary from Marine firearms instructor Grant Reynolds, early firearms historian Paul Masterson, World War I weapons expert Dan Sutton and other authorities.”
