Brilliant post. You might want to find some new "buddies" to hang out with.

Ok, here's my 2 cents,

I will never say Glock isn't a reliable pistol, they are and they can take a beating.
They just don't suit me because they don't feel right in my hand.
When I got my Sigma .40, I called a friend of mine who has a Glock 23 .40 and we went to the range.
The sigma was my first handgun more powerful than a .22 magnum.
With the first magazine I shot through it, at 7 yards, I was shooting a group the size of a Skoal can, (My target WAS a Skoal can).
Then my friend let me shoot his Glock and I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, same thing happened when he shot my Sigma. I think some guns just naturally fit different people.
It seems that most 1911 enthusiasts, like myself, love the fact that they're holding a piece of history, a gun design that is 100 years old and still considered one of the best pistols ever made.
That, and they are just plain beautiful weapons, easy to handle, reliable and fun to shoot.
I have no problem with most Glock owners, The Glock owners that I DO have a problem with, are those mall ninja types that think that if it's not Glock, it's junk.
When I had my Sigma, it was my carry weapon at work (gun store), I had a customer one time that told me I should get rid of my Sigma and get a Glock because he said "you're going to shoot yourself with that Sigma".... Why? the Sigma's guts are exactly like a Glock but, the Sigmas trigger pull is heavier, IMO you are less likely to accedentally discharge a Sigma than a Glock.

Getting to the point, 1911 guys are "Steel and Walnuts"
Glock fanboys ( not to be confused with the average Glock owner) are "Misleading and Bisexual"

I was hoping for something like:

Steel & Walnuts
and
Glock Jocks

You guys get testy with topics that say the word 'glock'

I found a few interesting GLOCK related definitions on Urban Dictionary:

1. Glock leg

A condition where a person shoots himself (or herself) in the leg while holstering their Glock pistol. This can happen with any weapon yielded by a careless user, but it is common among Glock pistols due to the lack of a manual safety, relatively light trigger pull, and lack of a proper hammer to push on while holstering.
How is Jim doing? I heard that he came down with a case of Glock leg at the range yesterday.

1. Glock bite
This is also known as "slide bite". It occurs when a moron fires any semi-automatic handgun and has his/her thumb too high up on the back of the weapon and when the trigger is pulled the person gets his/her thumb, or thumb region of their hand injured (usually a laceration) by the action of the slide. Glock Bite refers to when it is a Glock firearm being used by an idiot, and the idiot gets his/her hand injured.
