    Ok my Glock brothers... I have only been a gun owner for 6 months.. That being said Ive been to shooting ranges over 20 times since January.. 2000 rds through my Sigma, 1000 through my Glock, my buddies 1911 and 12 gauges, and 100s of hours of research.. In this short time I have seen many guns malfunction... A Kimber someone was using in my CHL class jammed 2-3 times. My buddies 1911 gives him a minor problem every time we go.. Many other guns ive seen people use give them some issue big or small... Iny experience it has never been a Glock... Now I know Glocks have and can FTF & FTE and jam, but the % is far better than any other gun hands down. Do you agree? And why dont others agree???? Doesnt mean you have to like them but come on man.

    I've had my Glock 35 since January and haven't had one problem. I do want a Ruger SR1911. I hope you're ready for a crap load of Glock ergonomics are horrible, it's like holding a cinder block, and so on.

    There reliability has never been a question to me I own a g30 thing has never jammed or failed to fire but it is uncomfortable to carry the grip is to big and at a odd angle and I'm inaccurate with it now i did have fte on my 1911 now and again but a change in recoil spring and extractor took care of that i also prefer its grip safety's and weight over the glock also I personally am a lot more accurate with a 1911 idk why but I like a heavier gun I do have to clean it a lot more than my glock but I don't mind :) just my 2 cents

    I have a 21, it's exceptionally well engineered and designed, without question. Easiest clean of them all. Accuracy no problem, one of if not the most accurate I own.

    Erm. A 600$ gun is better than a 2000$ wilson combat?

    I love my glock and I love my kimber. Never had a jam in either one. If I was in a situation were I had to grab one gun and leave quickly it would be my glock 23.

    Sorry man. I drink the 1911 KoolAid, but even I have to say that's just a poor argument.

    I can't give any real solid reasons for 1911 being a better choice over GLOCK. Its history, prices, availability, customizations... These things to me hold no functional value.

    What I can tell is why I choose the 1911 over GLOCK. I'm accurate with a GLOCK. It shoots when you pull the bang switch. And I like the 1911 better. It feels better in my hand. I'm MORE accurate with it. I find the ungodly weight to be comforting. The ergonomics fit my tastes. I like an external safety on a semi auto, and I find these safeties instinctual to operate, and contrary to what some GLOCKers say, no, the safeties do NOT slow me down. I like the history of the design (but that's not my deciding factor). And mine has been flawlessly reliable. I've had a GLOCK jam, but I don't consider an example of the brand, because it was a range gun and God only knows how many times it was rented out or how often it was cleaned. I don't find maintaining my 1911 to be cumbersome, hard, or inconvenient. Someone like me who was trained to clean each and every range trip had it ingrained into the DNA almost. No big deal. Anyone can tell you that maintaining a tool is a duty that ensures good operation in the future. If the GLOCK requires less maintenance and that's your preference, fine, whatever. People like arguing capacity. okay, fine. I have seven rounds on tap. When I carried a revolver every day, I had six. I never felt under gunned, and still never do. So capacity is no argument to me, and I'm accustomed to going into a firefight with 200 rounds of linked ammo.

    The 1911 is just the better choice to me. That doesn't make it best, just the best for me. If the GLOCK is the better choice for you, fine. It doesn't make it best, period, only the best for you.

    And the argument about over 80% of police forces and militaries using GLOCK? Do we REALLY want to talk about the sensibility of governments? Not saying that makes it a bad choice. I'm just saying that operators packing what they're forced to is a moot point.

    I've shot around 10 IDPA major matches, 2010 nationals and 2011 worlds.

    I've seen 1911's fail infinitely more than the glock. I got DQ'd at Missouri state this year because my G34 slamfired on my first COF. (Blame the gunsmith....me)

    Irrefutable evidence.

    Glocks have great ergonomics to me. I was a Glock hater from way back and ever since I got my first one I fell in love with it. I love the way it handles and hold up to anything you toss at it. Even in police academy I saw 2 different G22's shoot by accident a 9mm and have zero damage.

    We were confused by this too. Hubby thinks he meant there was accidentally a 9mm bullet in a .40 cal gun and it shot without damaging the gun. Not sure though.

    I think he means they shot a 9mm round out of the G22 .40 cal. That's what I get out of it.

    A slamfire is when the round discharges as it's being chambered, caused by an incorrect protrusion in the firing pin...or striker. There may be other causes but I'm not a gunsmith...so I'm not sure...
