Yeah, I'm denouncing the outdated 1911 and buying GLOCK tomorrow and I'm gonna run around and masturbate everywhere while I celebrate GLOCK superiority.

Good to know.
Yes it is.

No. The 1911 has enough parts. It doesn't need a few more. It was just fine the way JMB designed it, without the thumb and grip safeties.
I like mine just like it is.

Quote:
I like that "feature" of the Glock. If you pull the trigger and it's loaded, it fires. I thought that that's what pistols were supposed to do. If you didn't mean to fire it, then don't pull the trigger. Really, really simple or at least it is to me.
My 1911 can do the same thing.

Quote:
You asked about efficiency and the "straw" I "grasped" at was connected to something important. It's called mechanical design efficiency.
The 1911 has worked for 100 plus years. I think is still pretty efficient.

Quote:
No.
Because you cant? You shouldn't have made that claim then.

Quote:
A carb V8 will get you from Houston to Austin, but a fuel-injected V8 will still have gas in the tank after you get there.
ZERO relevance to thread.

Quote:
Re-read those threads more carefully.
I read them all twice. It's you who should go re-read them.

Quote:
Then I guess the 1911 is more "normal" than a Glock.
No, the guns aren't the issue here. It's the irresponsible gun owner who won't clean their guns.

Quote:
The Glock has been subjected to every type of torture test that someone could devise to try to prove that the pistol was unreliable. It's passed every test with flying colors.
And? I never said it hadn't. I think both the 1911 and the GLOCK are about as reliable as you can get.

Quote:
Do you know what BS smells like? When someone tells you, even if only implicitly or indirectly, that a mechanically more complex design is better than a simpler design for something that you're betting your life on, that doesn't pass the smell test. If you're so open-minded, then get yourself a Glock and shoot both of your pistols until you experience a failure with either one.
I plan on getting a GLOCK some day. I don't have the funds now. I'd take a donation though.

You have yet to prove anything other than you a GLOCK fan boy.

Quote:
How about we use 230 gr FMJ ammo, which is what both pistols were designed to fire to begin with? The military hasn't used non-jacketed bullets in quite some time. I've never fired non-jacketed bullets in anything other than a revolver.
What's wrong? Does a little lead have you scared? If A GLOCK is SOOOO much better than a 1911, then it should be able to handle all of the ammo a 1911 can handle.

Quote:
While we're at it, let's remove all lubrication from both pistols.
Once again, something a RESPONSIBLE gun owner wouldn't do.

Quote:
If you want to shoot ball ammo, you're on.
My 1911 will shoot either, but I prefer lead.

Quote:
Fire with functional parts missing or incorrectly installed, fire without requiring anything other than pulling the trigger, feed flawlessly after stepping on the magazine, and function without lubrication to name a few.
1) in one of the threads, a single part was messed up making the gun extremely unreliable.

2)1911s can do that. The thumb safety is not ALWAYS on you know.

3) Step on a 1911 mag, and it will most likely work find. Mess up the lips on either mag, and they will both quit working. That doesn't really have anything to do with the gun itself though.

4) As said above, firing a gun without lube is not something a responsible gun owner should do.

I can hear them, they are riding, it's the MODERATION ADMINISTRATION LEAGUE!

Everyone has made good points on both sides, some better than others, how about we all shake hands and agree to disagree? Anyone?

No, I just don't really see a need of them. If I ever end up in an area where I might have to fight ten guys at once, I'll be sure to but a high capacity 1911.

We have this thing called NIH syndrome over here.

Glock has a patented design. The 1911 is not patented anymore, although certain aspects of certain components in it may be.
Your theory of NIH syndrome would also effect GLOCK, H&K, Sig, and quite a few other POPULAR gun companies. They obviously don't have a problem. The 1911 is popular here because it is a great gun design.

If you look at this threads poll, you see just how popular the 1911 is.

I tried that in another thread with him. He refused, so the debate went on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on..... You get the point.

Jeebus, you folks still arguing about this? Love my 1911, but my carry gun is polymer. Merican made M&P is far superior to a Glock. I thought everyone knew that.

The only way the 1911 edges out the glock is because in the event of a fire your glock is melted. They only way a glock edges out a 1911 is mag capacity and torture test. The only way 1911 edges out glock is that its american made. Oh wait im going back and forth here aren't I? Just get both and have your cake and eat it to for crying out loud
