I have 1~1911(gold cup), and 5 Glocks. I prefer the stock parts of the Glock over a stock 1911. Now my friend has a 1911 that he said he put about $3,000 dollars into it, I've shot it a few times. Now I would prefer his 1911 over a stock Glock. But unless my budget allows me to put that kind of money into one gun~I'm staying with glock.

call me old-fashioned, but i went with the 1911 because i wasshooting them before the Glock was around. but the Glock has it's good points and bad points just like any other firearm. i would probably buy a 1911 over a Glock, but if the right Glock came along at the right price and time, then i would buy one.

currently i own three 1911's, but no Glocks.

I have one of each. For defensive purposes I prefer the Glock, the only reason for this is my proficiency with the platform.

I prefer the 1911 for range time.

Because i have a place for both, i didnt vote.

Now I guess if I could only own one, it would be the Glock for the reasons above... Thankfully I don't have that problem.

I love 1911's as they are the american gun with alot of history. Nothing feel as good or points as natural as a 1911 imho. However I have owned several 1911's and they need broken in and some very finicky with ammo. Get past these issues and you got yourself one hell of a gun

Fathead & I may be on opposite sides of the aisle on religion, but we can agree on this.
