After much debate and a bunch of rounds down range this week the winner is.... a para-ordnance SSP and I got an awesome deal. I have not turned my back to my glocks but like most of you have said it is nice to own both. Thanks to all.

Keep us updated with the Para. I for one don't hear much about them at all.

Congrats on the choice of the SSP!

I'm glad you went with a single stack 1911, and wood grips to boot!

I'm not a fan of ramped barrels but that's just me.

Looking forward to a RR and your thoughts on this icon.

Well, the OP has made his decision, so I'd like to pose a relevant question, or you might call it an observance.

Just looking at the Glocks in the gun case, I've never had a desire to own one or even hold one. My lone experience with a Glock was on the range when another shooter wouldn't take no for an answer when he offered to let me shoot his .40 caliber Glock.

I did shoot about 5 rounds through it & while it shot fine, maybe a little less recoil than my Bersa .40 because of the size, but it just didn't feel right in my hand. I don't know the model, only that it was .40 caliber & I THINK he said it carried 18 + 1 (not sure about that).

So I would question that anyone that really likes the feel & balance of a 1911 could also like a Glock.

No way, that's like comparing a civic to a 67 chevelle. Blasphemy!

I don't like the GLOCKs because of the way they feel in my hand, the grip angle is way to off for me. I shoot them very well though, surprises me because I can't stand the damn sights either. IMO, it's far from perfection.

Sent 550 rounds down range today and still satisfied with my choice. Not one jam or any problem for that matter. The only thing I need to get use to is taking it off safe when I want to speed shoot.

My first handgun was a Sig 2340.. no safety. After that it was all glocks. So now I'm adding a step when I pull and fire and its messing with me...sounds dumb but it is. It feels like I'm trying to walk again with three legs.

Overall still very happy with my choice.

Red - It will become natural with some practice.

As an instructor once told my gal: "you are already walking, talking and productive. What we have now is a slight modification to your routine and when you learn it, it will be with you forever".

The frame mounted safety is the ULTIMATE safety in the semi-auto world and is AS John Moses Browning intended.

The 1911 was built to be dry fired For-Evah, as ammo was expensive at the time, so there is nothing stopping you from practicing until it becomes as natural as breathing.

Welcome to the 1911 Fraternity, Brother!
