This infographic from GunVault charts the development of the handgun from simple black powder load and pray lead throwers, to the modern high-powered and deadly accurate weapons that we use today.
The Colt M1911 is undoubtedly the most influential auto of all time, with most modern semi-automatics tracing their development from the original John Browning design.
If something's not broken, you don't need to fix it, and the 1911 proved just that by being the standard US (and others) military sidearm until 1985, seeing service through the First and Second World Wars, Korea and Vietnam.
