People making such stupid remarks have ZERO real world experience with a handgun.
I spent the last weekend training to use the M4 Carbine as a close quarter battle weapon with an honest-to-gosh-darn goodness fomer Tier 1 operator and what sidearm was he carrying??
He was carrying and using with amazing skill a customized Glock 34.
It was a think of beauty watching that guy shoot his sidearm.
He LOVES 1911s and must have said a dozen times: I hated giving up my 1911 when they issued us the Glock, but....I am sure glad I had it in a number of situations I had in "interesting places."
The gun forum Ninjas are, frankly, freakin' morons for the most part.
