And the arrows point the wrong way.

The 1911 has a fatal design flaw that inhibits point shooting.

Had a guy at my gun counter say that the other day. I guess I've been doing it wrong the last couple of years...

GLOCKS are perfection.

Sorry, had to say it. I think GLOCKs are good guns, but they are not perfect, and they aren't the best out there.

I will never own a Glock. They function nice.. but they remind me of legos of how they look.!

"Anything below [.40 or .45] isn't suitable for self defense."

IMO, anything above .25 is suitable for self defense. Even a .25 can kill, but it is highly unlikely it will make a one-shot-stop. Most of the time, just pullin a gun is good enough to solve a self defense situation.
