Colt no longer making handguns?

Has Colt stopped producing handguns? Both of my distributors are completely out of stock on their 1911 line. I looked on Colts home page and they don't even list handguns.

Colt Pistols: Colt pistols have long represented the gold standard in magazine-fed semi-automatic handguns.

I just bought four or five new production Colts the last year with the most recent about a month ago.

As far as distributors and dealers are out of stock, that's true. Colt doesn't conk out a lot of pistols and they get snapped up very quick.

Apparently Ruger has stopped producing handguns too since there are no SR 1911's in stock anywhere...

I'm still holding out for my centennial 1911, I called a week or two ago and they still hadn't gotten all 750 of them out yet.

Colt is also reintroducing the Gold Cup National Match AND still keeps the Gold Cup Trophy.

I don't get it.
