I just bought my second Glock, a 30SF for short frame. My compact 26 9mm and the 30 sf are so close in feel and they both point right on the target for my hold! They both rock! The new 30sf I love so much I might get another to pound and have a ball. $535 it was brand new!!

For the ease in firing it in a quick situation the Glock is hands down what I would ever stake my family or my life on. I custom built bullseye 1911s for 10 years and know them inside out. Use one for ccw NEVER, I'll use my Glock, no levers, grip safety's or any other bs... Just finger on the trigger and squeeze it through in the best reliability !

I had an unforgettable mind-changing experience one time with a Glock 26. Went out to my range and pulled the trigger...click!...hmm. rack...click, rack, click....clean...click. 5 different brands of ammo. Gun wouldn't fire. This gun was very well maintained as all my guns are. Cleaned after every shooting. That ruined me on depending on Glock to save my life. That being said, I still have two of them, but their just range guns now. Kinda like when your wife cheats on you...(if you're that unfortunate.) You can forgive her and keep her around, but you'll never get over it. I carry a colt new agent now. Will never give it up.

Boy would I hate to own a 1911 built by you.
As I've mentioned before, I carry a Detonics MK VI .45. Sometimes I'll take the Kimber Custom CDP, .45.
Never had a problem with either.
Yes there is more effort to clean and lube and take care of these guns, but I like too. In return you get much better trigger and accuracy.
Yes you do have to release the safety, but anyone with an average IQ should learn this very quickly.

I would have to agree with you, I'm a LEO and Glock is what I carry on and off, but I still love my 1911s.

To each his own, you never tried a smoothed out trigger on my Glock. For quick defense out to 15 yds you won't beat it for the fastest safest shot out of the holster compaired to a 1911 in my book.

My thoughts tend to follow USMC_Richy's. I will say that both are good firearms and accurate, really can't go wrong with either. I will also add it may depend on how you are going to carry, your carrying system - belt included, what you wear, and weight of the firearm... when you are making a choice for a concealed carry firearm. Remember you will be carrying this all day long and some people hate to carry a couple of extra ounces while others don't mind at all. What you do or will be doing those days will also matter, which people forget sometimes. If you had the chance to fire both that will also help in making a choice.

For what its worth I have both and really like both. I have a Government model and both compact and sub compact Glocks. Tend to find myself carrying the Glock more. All because of what I am wearing, doing, sometimes the weather and weight or the firearm plays a factor, and where I am going on those days.
For a good 1911 in the 600 dollar range look to Springfield GI or Mil-Spec in a NM series serial number. Good luck in your decision!

1911= Apple
Glock= PC

Some people like the more expensive, shiny and pretty one so they can say they have it. Others like affordable functionality that works....
