A Glock is a nice weapon yes it holds a ton of ammo and it is fast .... ( BUT !) When I am out in the Hills I kinda feel safer with a hard hitting 1911 with that big old round I dont worry alot about what might step into the trail ahead of me and I like the wieght of the 1911 I can change a mag fast enough so 7 to 8 rounds is ok with me .... Nobody can tell me a 9 mm has the solid knock down power of a heavy hitter like the 45 acp...
I shoot straight and true so dont feel the need to carry 17 or 20 rounds in a mag LOL...
well anyway keep them all shooting like I said I have both a Glock and a Colt 1911 so it always comes to what makes you happy dont it ??

I owned an Auto Ordinance GI Spec Repro once I loved it.

It's little tang bruised the insides of my hands.

I traded it in and bought a Glock 30 .45 ACP I love it also.

I am giving this to my Dad for Father's Day and I am buying a Glock 29 10MM and a Dan Wesson .357 Magnum Revolver.

I would love to own a 1911 again but with a upswept beavertail.

I wont say mean things about either Glocks or 1911s.

Different strokes for different folks?

I drive an American Muscle Car (Mustang GT), am a PC and own a 1911 Kimber (American made)

my wife drives European Rally Car (Mini Cooper S), is a MAC and owns a Glock 17 OD (European made)

Every one of my gut feelings tells me that the Glock 17 is all wrong:
- too light (for recoil purposes, quality things are heavy...)
- 1/2 of the gun is plastic
- the barrel elevation is re-adjusted after every shot
- it squeaks even when well oiled
etc.

Still, it's track record is really amazing, especially for a budget gun. (~$500)

Range guns seems to be the ultimate test for reliability, the ranges I go
to tell me they never clean the guns until they malfunction. At these
ranges, glocks rule and never get cleaned. WHY are they so durable?

That being said, the 1911s seem to handle themselves quite well at the
range also. Never lubed and never cleaned. I took one apart 2 days ago
at the range and it was black inside and otherwise shiny inside.

Hmm...pretty...of course, for the price of a Nighthawk Custom, I can buy 4 Glock 21s. That gives me, oh, 48 more rounds of copper candy to give to the bad guys. Actually, I could buy 5 G21's, but let's be honest, carrying 5 Glock 21s is silly
