As unbiased as I can possibly be...

I've shot both. Never had the overwhelming urge to buy a GLOCK. I will one day, a G17 so I can have some range fun with 33 round mags and cheap ammo. But they never overly impressed me.

Never shot a 1911 until I bought one. I decided after the first range trip that if I could choose only one gun for life, that's it.

Why have hamburger when you can have steak? Get a CZ-75 and never look back.

I agree to a point, glocks and bottom end 1911s are hamburger. But quality 1911s are like an aged Delmonico

Better for what? If you think the measure of a pistol is the amount of abuse it can take, buy the Glock. 1911s can bear up pretty well under a fair bit of abuse as well, more than they are given credit for. But why would you want to?
They are products of different design philosophies and different eras, so direct comparison isn't always the best way to judge. Much like comparing a new Camry to a 65 GTO. Both do what they do quite well within the limitations of their designs. You need to pick the one that fits your intended use.

The bad guy center punched with either one won't really care which one you use.

As to the CZ 75, we're talking .45s here. Bring a 97 or go home.
