Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

One has over 100 years of active service putting bad guys in the ground and is coming up on it's 100th Anniversary induction into the military.

The other one was made by a doorknob engineer from Austria who never had any intentions of selling the weapon to civilians of any country.

I work with a guy who spent years shooting IPSC and other head to head competitions including metal plates. He shot 1911's the whole time.

Today he lives in Oregon and works here in Washington. He carries a Glock everywhere he goes.

It's all personal preference. Some people like Ford, some like Chevy, some like strawberry and some like chocolate.

All I can say is I have a buddy with a half-dozen Glocks as well as a Les Baer and an Ed Brown 1911...

Love the face palm Cane. I'm sorry but for a first .45 caliber its gonna have to be a 1911 model of some sort. I've shot a Glock...in fact owned one and wasn't impressed. It was small, funny feeling and just didn't work for me. I traded it for my Ruger that is great!

There's your answer. I cannot shoot a Glock either. Sure, it's reliable as hell. You can bury the thing in wet sand for a year and dig it back out and fire it. But, can you fire it accurately and do you like the way it feels/looks? If you answered no to any of those, there's your hint. Go with something else.

There are more Glock fanboys out there than there are 1911 fanboys but that's only because the 1911 doesn't need constant product placement in movies and elsewhere to be considered an awesome pistol. If you've ever shot one, you'll know they're awesome. If you haven't shot one yet, go get your feet wet right now. Personally I don't foresee swimming ashore on a beach dragging my equipment through sand or throw my pistol around like I don't care about it.

Sure, the Glock has a rugged reliability that you can't really match. On the other hand it's like shooting with a darn brick in your hand. If your mission is to get a pistol that you won't have to clean or take apart (ever, if you so choose) then go for a Glock or similar piece of plastic. If you care about your pistol and you enjoy taking it apart and cleaning it and don't mind spreading a couple of extra layers of love on, get a 1911.

I own quite a few of both. Two of my favorite pistol formats.

You're comparing turds and boogers. Neither of which I eat anymore, BTW. If you need to whip out a bullet hose and shoot at a bunch of bad guys, by all means carry the Glock. If you want bragging points and truly appreciate an iconic handgun that made America great, carry a 1911. I shot them for a decade, and it's a magnificent platform if you are sure that you'll never have to fire more than 7 shots at a time.
The 1911 is not a practical carry gun, considering the available options. Glock has a societal reputation as an overpriced ghetto-gun. Split the difference and get yourself a Springfield Armory XD.
