    Not a FanBoy

    You all by now know I own two Glocks, I got them for a good price. I am by no means a fanboy for any gun, but I did join the Glock forum thinking I would learn something. I learned that if you do not trash every gun made but a Glock you a Glock hater.

    I came across this youtube and thought it was funny considering how over the top some Glock owners are. Honestly guys take a chill pill.

    Same could said about 1911 45acp owners among many others. Some times I think 1911 45acp owners are worse the. Glock fan boys.

    I own Glocks and several other brands as along as they work I keep them around. If they don't work I have no need for them no matter who made it.

    My current carry is a Ruger SR1911. My next purchase will likely be a Glock 19. I may carry both at the same time, so I can truly ascend to Sidearm Valhalla.

    From what I have seen it has been the owners of high end 1911s that have the same syndrome, like Kimber fanboys. There just are larger number of Glock fanboys, because there are more Glocks.

    Ahhh you will be scolded for carrying any Ruger in Glock world. I thought the Hi Point would be the most trashed weapon there, but it seems to be the Ruger.

    Thanks for sharing. That was pretty amusing.
    I'm on the Glock Forum also and I guess some members can get pretty zealous.
    I appreciate Glocks and am not brand loyal either. I've got the pokemon mentality a little bit, I'd like to try them all.

    Anyone who knows anything about firearms knows the legendary 1911 design which was handed down to John Moses Browning from above. And any self-respecting person would only carry a Colt 1911 made in the image of the first 1911, chambered in the caliber which starteth with the holy number "4".
    I'll have nothing to do with any of these corrupted forms made by the likes of Kimber and Para Ordnance, who have defiled what was once pure.
    (3 eye-rolling smileys in case anyone didn't catch my over-the-top sarcasm; it's all in good fun)
    I almost went with an SR1911 for my first gun. Still glad I got my SA 1911-A1 instead (I don't trust adjustable sights for a carry gun). Tough call, seeing as I really want a "Made in AZ" stamp on the frame. I'm considering building one and doing that myself (not illegal as long as I don't sell or transfer it).
    I respect the reliability of Glocks, just don't like their grip angle or grip ergonomics. I'd still buy a Glock over a Kimber 1911 though.

    The 1911 fanboys include the Colt, the Kimber, and the "super-tactical" subgroups.

    I am in the market for a SR1911 just because I think they are well made and the price is right.

    I really find Stainless handguns a lot more practical the blued steel ones.

    My stainless P90 is just as useful.

    But I like guns of all kinds

    The price is definitely right for a stainless firearm, and I like having a little more peace of mind regarding corrosion. (paranoid, or prepared?)
    Good video link. I see it's the version with on-screen lyrics.

    Nawww my next gun will probably be a Ruger or a M&P, both far superior and better made than the Glocks.

    That's because nobody has admitted to carrying anything made by InterOrdnance. Yet. 😆

    That's true I haven't seen polymer frames rust but I have seen their slides get rusty.

    I think this attitude extends far beyond firearms. As pointed out 1911 owners can be the same way (i have 5 glocks, love them) 3 1911s and several others. Each has it's own unique characteristics.


    But ford/chevy/dodge owners are the same way... Cummins engines vs powerstrokes.... gays/christians. Muslims/non muslims. The entire world seems determined to impress their views on you no matter if it is a choice of firearm or God. Personally, what works for me, may not work for you. I encourage all prospective gun owners to go to a range, handle quite a few then rent their favs and pick what works best for them.

    I prayed to God and asked him if he would carry a Glock, not that he needs to carry anything, he did not answer.....yet.

    Among the areas of success for the Colt was a test at the end of 1910 attended by its designer, John Browning. Six thousand rounds were fired from a single pistol over the course of two days. When the gun began to grow hot, it was simply immersed in water to cool it. The Colt gun passed with no reported malfunctions, while the Savage designs had 37.
    Colt made the 1911 what it is and what Kimber would like the 1911 to be.
