LOL! An all-metal monster is better for pistol-whipping than a piece of tupperware.

I'll take a stab at it. 1911's give you a chance to practice malfunction drills. Lol. Your first statement is correct.... All personal preference.

Umm...having less bullets requires you actually practice putting rounds on target.
Yeah I'm reaching.

Trigger.
Craftsmanship.
Accuracy.
Appearance.
Don't have a grip like a slightly rounded 2x4.
Higher melting point.
1911 Kool Aid tastes better. :p

A 1911 is superior period.

You have to be at least a baby boomer to feel it's superior.

It's all about trigger break, ergonomics and the diameter of the barrel (45acp).

Cuz everybody knows that a plastic gun couldn't handle a really hot round like the 10mm.

Can't shoot yourself in the *** with unless you really try, and if nothing else, it makes a great club. That and it's not kick a baby ugly. Even a bargain brand 1911 is tough as nails.

I just have to state this but I don't think caliber or capacity should factor in because 1911s come in too many varieties. I don't know about Glocks as much cause I shot one and wanted to beat the man who suggested it with a stick.

Because you won't get "1911 leg"??? :confused:

Real pistols don't get compared to kitchen

storage devices? ;)

Because you may want to shoot a gun

that looks like Madonna, not Medusa?:eek:

Because if you drop your gun in the mud, you

want to hear the splash?:rolleyes:

I could do this all day...

I find the Glock 17 and 22 grip to be awful, but the 19 fits just right.

Depends on the use, for recreation, the 1911 all day. For HD either and for carry, I go with the Glock.

But if I had a compact 1911, i'd carry that.

I'd give the 1911 the win here, the glock has its place, but why limit yourself to one?
Buy both.:D

Cuz the 1911 has at least twice as many numbers in its name/model as the Glock 19?
