It's all preference and what suits one better. I prefer the 1911 platform by miles but shoot Glocks better because they point higher, as I naturally point low. However I hate Glock's refusal to employ a manual safety & insistence on using double stack magazines. Others care little to none for safeties, to reach their own. Again full circle to preference.

Both are near and dear to me. But in my opinion, the Glock beats the 1911. I like the cost, reliability(although a good 1911 is reliable) simplicity and ruggedness. I know some people hate the grip, or the chunkiness of the slide, but that doesn't bother me. I like the 1911, but I don't carry one, they're a bit too heavy, and I don't like having to disengage the safety.

If anyone actually watches the video...

They will see that I assert that it should never be framed as a "vs" debate but simply as "and" ...

Both great pistols, the right tool for the right job.

OH... You wanted us to watch the video.

I thought this was just another invitation to mindless bickering about inconsequential and illogical comparisons.

Not going down this path again. Like arguing Camaros and Mustangs.

Ok. Let's skip to his other videos.

Amsdorf... Don't bring up Glock comparisons again. It gives everyone tweezer brain.
