Better pistol and why
 
Okay so what (in everyone's opinion) is the better handgun:

1911 or a glock 21 chambered in a .45

You just asked in the 1911 forum, so it is going to be biased towards 1911.:rolleyes:

I've traded both my .45 Glocks (kept the three 9mm's); the Glock is a great gun but not as much fun as my 1911s.

I can shoot a 1911 better than a Glock.

Yes. There is no doubt in my mind.

I see you're new, and I'm not trying discourage you, but the Glock /
1911 debate has been more than well covered. If you want to look through some past threads we have a search feature.

In the meantime, welcome to the forum. If you haven't done it yet you should stop by the Introductions folder and tell us a little about yourself

Run some search's for info and check out shooters with a good video history like hinckok45 to watch. Try to shoot other peoples glocks or 1911 AND many other pistols. If you can even renting and shooting a box of ammo devided between same caliber rentals that are avalible!!

Bottom line , the differences are very miner if wanted as a shooter are fun, match pistol homem defense handgun. You could by a highpoint and get by. For carry use, nether may truly serve you best.

It must be your choice not ours as to what to buy. I CC smaller lighter da type triggered pistols but have 1911's and had glocks and revolvers. No perfect handgun for all needs and hard to stop at only one.

I think if you shot them side by side you'd have a very obvious answer right in your hands.

Get both, then add a Sig and an H&K along with a FN. Then you should be pretty well covered.

Its like asking what team is better the Yankees or the Red Sox, in Boston

Basing just the 1911 design against a glock design is rough, as you have already discovered. The glock is simple when the 1911 is a little more complex. Its really all about how they feel in YOUR hand and how you shoot them. If you're efficient at weapons manipulation and can do some quick reloads the 1911 may be the gun for you, if you want a few more rounds in your mag then you may want a glock. But that is all dependent on your needs
