Glock- Shooting appliance. Functional, reliable and very good for it's intended use. Just about as exciting to look at as a $12 Wal-Mart coffee maker.
1911- Much like a well kept muscle car (as previously noted). Not always the most practical thing available, but you simply don't care. I would guess that if one is driving a beautiful muscle car, they are not pining away for a Civic or a Corolla.

I have owned 6 glocks, 3 G23, 2 G27, 1G26 and a G21. Notice I said owned, I have owned a SA mil spec, kick myself every time I think of that day I sold it. I now have a Kimber and won't part with it. I carry my sig p239, and my Kimber on a regular basis.
Now if you want a throw around gun that needs little care, buy a glock and a bore snake. After shooting lock slide back, run bore snake through barrel, reload. A glock has one of the best coatings on their barrel and slide, no other gun comes close to their coating. My last g23 jammed on me 3 times in one mag and 2 more times on the second mag. Yes they do jam. I had one old guy say a glock was the best gun made cause you could fire it under water, great tip to remember, you know I like to carry while I swim.
Now i sit around and dream of my next 1911, what kind will I buy, or will I have one custom built. I don't sit around and dream of a glock. Just my thoughts.

Whoa! I'm glad I read through the comments before I pressed the submit button. That was my exact comment...almost. I own several Glocks & now 2 1911s. I didn't understand the fascination with the 1911 platform until I shot my neighbors then I was hooked. I looked around and ended up with a Springer Range Officer. Love it. My wife bought a Taurus pt1911 after she shot mine. I saw on this forum where someone bought the Taurus & posted a good write-up on it.

These 1911s are totally different guns than the Glocks that I own. The comment about 1911s having soul is true. When you hold them you can feel their history. You know that there is somthing special about them. When you hold one of my Glocks you feel plastic. Someone said Glocks are tools, that's what they feel like when you pick them up (ok, maybe 2x4s). 1911s look and feel like pieces of art, even the Taurus versions. Yes, some art is better than others, but there is always someone out there to appreciate it.

If Springfield, Taurus or even Glock offered a plastic 1911, would you buy it? Would it be worth buying? A Glock holds more ammo, is more likely to shoot HP & other ammo reliably when dirty & neglected. Why would anybody even want a plastic 1911? The old school 1911s, with the same materials, construction & features that were first designed by John Browning, are desirable because they are the same handgun that our forefathers carried for the last 100 years into battle to protect us from evil (well, 70 anyway before they turned to Beretta). Glocks have been around 20 some odd years and are tools for police and we police wanna-bees (No, I didn't just go there?) Just saying...

There are men and there are boys; the 1911 was made for the men...
