I've never owned a 1911, so I'm wondering - what is the fuss about? I would think that a Glock is less likely to rust. Rumor has it that 1911's don't feed hollow points as well, but any truth to that? 1911's are larger weopons that are more difficult to conceal - at least it appears that way by the eye test. I understand that you can customize a 1911 much easier than something like a Glock, but how important is it to have a different color handle or something? I know it sounds like I'm trying to flame 1911's here, but no one in my family has a 1911. Is there a benefit or is it because of the long heritage that people like 1911s? Maybe it just feels better? There are military grade 1911s, but the police carry Glocks yes? Also seems like 1911's are often more expensive. How do you justify the cost increase? I must be missing something.
