From what I've seen, Glock enthusiasts are just trying to portray what an excellent product a Glock is. However some Glock lovers also say 1911s are unreliable and bulky, which is simply not true. So 1911 lovers feel they have so go the defensive side.

That does seem to be correct. Us 1911 KoolAid drinkers pick on the GLOCK fanboys a little more often than they pick on us.

HOWEVER! The GLOCK fanboys seem to take it WAY more personally than we do. One thing I've learned is that a sure fire way to pick a fight here (and get a week's vacation from FTF) is to insult GLOCK as combat tupperware and an unsafe piece that feels as if it were made by mattel.

Its like momma always said, if you ignore them and dont let it bother you they will leave you alone.

But if you argue with them and let them know that it bothers you, they will never stop.

Well in MY personal experience, i have owned one glock and it was a complete POS and their CS was pretty much useless for me. I've owned a few 1911s and each one was great. I try not to badmouth glock tho, and i don't consider myself a 1911 fanboy. But i have noticed that a large amount of glock owners do take things WAY too personally.

i will have too disagree go back and reads all the posts on the thread and on the other ongoing thread and you will see a minimum of two to one comments 1911 fans taking the bulk.

ive spanked just as many glock haters as glock lovers. you get the vacation package if the argument turns into a he/she said personal insult warfare. no one gets sat for expressing a coherent argument.

call someone a goat luvin teacher union type cuz they like brand X you get to take a break

You have to keep in mind though that on that other thread, glock fans went and poached on the 1911 forum, can't blame them for getting defensive.

And i'm talking about real life, not the interweb. Again, in MY experience glock fans will lose their effing mind if you just say that you don't like glocks. 1911 owners tend to just shake their head, say a word or two, and walk away.
