There's differences in size, weight, grip width,

and grip angle.

The slides are different as night and day.

That's just off-hand, I probably missed a few things.

Certainly hope you're not presenting your pistol

expertise, in an attempt to advocate glock, here...
I know full well the difference between a 1911 and an M9. It was a rhetorical comment meant to illustrate my point. The other individual was saying that 1911s are obsolete for military use. Knowing that we now use the M9, which has even more complicated battery of arms than the old antiquated 1911, I was attempting to show the other I divide all that he was wrong about 1911s being obsolete for military use.

Please follow the thread closer. I never at one time advocated Glocks for anything.

These are close, but not really the same.

Have owned several Glock pistols.

I require double stacked mags for capacity, few 1911s offer that feature.

I require a rust free sidearm, as I get my sidearm dirty and damp sometimes, few 1911s offer that feature.

I require a hunting round cartridge as I live on a lake, and you never know what might be stalking you or stumble across you. Few 1911 offerings come in 10mm.

I prefer a black pistol, yet I do not want traditional bluing that does not hold up to constant use. My 20 year old and then some Glock 20, still looks like the day I purchased it.

I am 6'7" tall and few people in human history weigh more than I do, but my balls are not big enough to carry a 1911 cocked & locked. Glocks 5.5 pound 1/2" trigger pull, trigger block safety in a level II Serpa holster is about right for my comfort safety level.

If I had a stainless Paraordance or a Colt Delta Elite, it most likely would be just another safe trophy. With dozens of those already, they would be seldom seen, seldom used.

I enjoy and use all my Glocks.
To each his own. You have good reasons for preferring a Glock.

I will say, though, that I think rust can be avoided by keeping the gun lubed well and with a correct lubricant. But that's not an argument for why YOU should use a 1911. Clearly the Glock is a better choice, for you.

Here's that "useless" information again. Who said owning a GLOCK was cool? Who shot themselves in the privates? How about give people useful information on how to properly handle a firearm?. AGAIN it is not the firearms fault Mr. Reporter!!!.::::

As much as I like my 1911s, there's two things that my GLOCK 19 has over them that I truly appreciate and can not be disputed:

1) The Glock will keep my 9MM ammo fresher longer

and

2) When the Government comes to confiscate my 1911s, I can still use my GLOCK to keep leftovers in my refrigerator.

Does this make me a GLOCK fanboy now?

But they are available.

Wrong. There are plenty of 1911 that are resistant to rust. Plus, a little oil will help prevent rust. Even a GLOCK can rust because it's not all polymer.

.400 Corbon, .460 Rowland, and possibly even .45 Super. A well made (strength wise) 1911 will usually handle these calibers conversions just fine. IIRC, the .400 Corbon was actually made to try to duplicate 10mm ballistics.

Many 1911 are solid black. It's pretty common. They can also have really durable finishes.

1911s were made to be carried cocked and locked. Plus, the gun has two safeties. A thumb safety that prevents the trigger from being pulled, and a grip safety that won't let the gun fire unless you have your hand on the grip.

Why? Why condemn them to become a safe trophy? They are meant to be used, and should be used. I wouldn't have a problem shooting or carrying either of those guns.

That's good. I'm glad you have found a gun that you truly enjoy, though you should at least try a 1911. You might find that you really enjoy them too.

I have less money in my four Glocks than I would have in one 1911 with my grocery list of features.

Jay Leno ownes several Dusenburgs, but if LA got a 20 minute warning of a 8.0 earthquake, and it was his ass he was trying to save, bet ten bucks it would be a one ton truck, 4WD he would jump into.

My Glocks are the SHTF choice, regardless of what collectable stuff I have acquired.

Expirence on ranges as a Range Safety Officer, shows me what pistols always work without fail, time and time again, in the hands of LEO's or first time shooters. Listen to you tube videos from Range people, and listen to what they have to say.

I liked my Star PD. Sold it when I got my Glock 20 plus years ago. Still have my 439, never use it.

I'm 58 soon and when I grew up guns were something that were pretty and made you proud to own them. I own quite a few 1911's and NO blocks. They are extremely ugly and I just can't warm up to an ugly gun with no soul and has a lousy trigger. 1911's (along with AR's) are like GI Joe's for grown men. The choices of grips, triggers, sights, and a bunch of other things makes them wonderful guns. A G-19 is a G-19 nothing else. Wood grips for it NO. Send it off and get it blued, hard chromed nope. NO SOUL in those guns. I can pull out a glock or a nice 1911 and the glock gets a cool and the 1911 gets fondled. And I don't care what you do to a glock trigger it will never be as nice as a 1911. Oh, do they come blued, hard chromed, cerekoted in different colors, SS. Nope just the same as every other one. UGH!!!!!!!!!!

The NSA has notified the authorities to get you Glock when they come for your 1911.

That explains it. I am only 57. Must be a generational issue. If we were closer to the same age, we would see eye to eye better. Lol
