1911 - Why? Because it was not only revolutionary but almost every modern semi-auto pistol, regardless of who manufactures it, uses the same/similar short recoil design. The 1911 also endures to this day. Not many other inventions can say that.

Glock - Why? Because where the 1911 was revolutionary, the Glock was evolutionary. Even though polymer was not a Glock invention, it is most indentified with Glock as is the "safe action" trigger and the famous Glock reliability. Glock has pretty much cornered the law enforcement market -- and although distractors will say that is only because they are cheap that's not all true. They are selected because they are damn good and reliable so law enforcement agencies all over the world trust their lives to them.

As much as I enjoy my Glock, I have to say the 1911. I've never had another gun in my hand that felt so good, it just fits! The trigger on the new ones (Kimber, Springfield, etc.) cannot be touched by any other gun. It's been around for over 100 years for a reason, it's that damn good!

This travels into the dead center of "Personal Opinion"...

Now, 1911A1s, S&W SS revolvers, 92FSs, CZ75s, and Browning

High Powers are all great and time tested guns, but I for one

favor the Beretta-style de-cocker safety.

So last year I was thinking-"Wouldn't it be great if there was a

well-made SS 45ACP, similar to the 1911, with a de-cocker safety?"


Then I found the S&W SS645, and, IMO, one of the greatest was

born...

Yeah, it rocks. It's angled differently from a 1911, so you have a better

grip to control muzzle flip. It also has 8+1 capacity, and comes with

two extra mags.

IMO, a well designed S&W offering.
