Sorry, but this whole idea of "versus" is just crap. Through trial & error we each find the platform(s) and caliber(s) we like and shoot well. There is no "best" gun as each of us are different. I've tried to like Glocks for 2 reasons - they are cheap and they are reliable. I've owned a 17, 19, 21, 23, & 26 and I don't shoot them for spit. Had I started on a Glock, maybe it would be different.

Find what works for you, be it a Glock, 1911, Sig, or even HiPoint...

I wish I could find the pistol and rifle issued to my great grandfather during WW2. Unfortunaely no one in the family knows what happened to them, I think he may have even turned them back in when he came out of service. I'd pay gobs of money if I could actually get a hold of the actual pistol he used.
I'd actually like to see a pic of the 1911 you're talking about Saviorslegacy.

As for the "versus" thing of this tread, I dont think anyone here really cares to fight about it, because we all know its a thing of choice not objective fact.

You ought to be proud of that piece of history. Do a little research on the orignial 1911 and you'll see that you have a very valuable piece of history, even after its been re-parkerized, though that does decrease its "nominal" value in most cases. Its hard to find an actual WW2 1911 like that for less than a grand thats in good working condition, or at least where I live.

So anyway, 1911's are super heavy too and an outdated design!

Glocks are Bad-A!, super reliable, high capacity, and would work underwater, in mud, in ice, in a whales stomach, on the sun, anywhere!!!!
-Capacity may be limited, but I do not believe is "spray and pray", If I need more than 8 rounds, I'm in the wrong place for a handgun.
-With practice, anyone can draw and shoot a 1911 just as fast (if not faster), and the safety is a non-issue.
-I never have a problem feeding hollowpoints with my 1911's.
-A heavy firearm will absorb felt recoil better.
-For something to be out dated, it does not have any use today (like the engine crank on Model T's). The 1911 does not fit that category.

Did you read the whole thread? No. Did my sarcasm go below your knees? Yes.

Even though blueing was the original, I think that the re-parkerized finish looks better. It is more of a silvery grey than a deep black.

AMEN

I shoot my 1911's in competition, love'm, wouldn't leave home with out one!! (well except I keep a Glock 34 in my Truck)..........did someone say WHY?

-------------- Reliability and its holds a 17 round Magazine of HP +Ps!

The first Glock I ever saw was being thrown like a horseshoe, hundreds of times, then the dirt shaken out of it a magazine inserted and then the Model 17 was fired into a berm wide open!!! Then cleared and shooters at this Georgia USPSA State Match started throwing this ugly thing over and over again........At the end of the day GLOCK Personel gave away the Glock Bayonet to the person who landed the Glock 17 the closes to the pin,
(Bayonet) that day... Year was 1987

Well it got a lot of 1911 shooters attention, including me!......Thanks, W.T.
