    I carry my Glocks more when it comes to semi auto handguns I prefer the higher capacity ones.

    But if it was a1911 in my hand I would do good work with it.

    ^ this sums it up for me too. I prefer high capacity so i generally carry myt g17 but i love my 1911s too. memphis seems to have a lot of crime caused by groups or more than one attacker. Im sure the others would split after the first guy goes down but i like having the extra rounds in reserve.

    1911s are good guns now doubt, but as my brother and I were just discussing this the other day they are 100 year old technology. Revolutionary for their day, but other firearms such as Glocks have furthered the art.

    The main difference that we see aside from the obvious capacity issue (which can be fairly solved with a Para 14) is the grip angle. Some people don't care for the Glock's more extreme angle, myself I fall within that percentage of people that Gaston Glock figured would naturally adapt to such an angle.

    Beyond that I think that most factors favor the Glock; loaded carry is safer and there are no extra steps to take (safety) to draw and fire since the gun loaded required a trigger pull to give the striker the energy to fire the round. I've caught edges and been pinched on 1911s and Browning Highpowers a few times, only once have I gotten a small nick in the skin from inadvertently brushing my hand into the front sight while handling a Glock so I think the exterior is more user friendly even if its not cosmetically appealing to some. Simplicity of maintenance is hands down in favor of Glock.

    Reliability, I have a Para 14 1911 and a few Glocks, I've had issues with both in relation to type of ammunition used; with the Para I had rounds that didn't seat in the chamber and jammed the action requiring a gun smith to fix (fatal stoppage), with the Glock I have one with a Lone Wolf upper assembly and it requires full power loads to cycle, with Federal etc "FBI loads" it will fail to feed/eject/stovepipe etc about 4/5 rounds - not fatal stoppages but certainly interrupts your ability to place a follow up. Functionally though with good ammo neither gun has malfunctioned on me as of yet.

    So if you prefer nostalgia or can't adjust your grip angle to match your line of sight the 1911 might be better for you, but in modern terms I think the Glock better suits a person's needs. Nothing against John Browning, just 100 years of firearms technology advancements. The function of the Glock is so successful that most every major firearms manufacturer has a striker fired version on the market today.

    It took me a second to realize you meant "1911 v Glock". With 911 v Glock the choice is obvious. Call me when emergency services move at 1200fps.

    I traded a P89DC in stainless for this P89. OK, I'll admit it; I'm a sucker for external safeties a la 1911A1. My other pistol is a Springfield Armory "Champion" model which is basically a Combat Commander clone.

    Before someone says it: I incorporate clicking off the safety as a part of my draw. Were I concealed carrying all the time, I would be less inclined to want this type of safety.

    That's why I like my Ruger. If I can't hit him with the bullets, I can throw the thing at him and do some serious damage!

    This is the fifth Ruger I've owned (two revolvers and three pistols) and I have, in all these years, only seen one malfunction. Everyone who saw it agreed that it was due to the shooter's (not me) limp wristing it. We corrected his hold, gave him a few pointers, and he did very well thereafter.

    I almost bought a Glock, but just couldn't bring myself to do it. Even a G29 with G20 mag and grip extension. Even a G21 converted to .40 Super. I'm converting a Sig Emperor Scorpion 1911 to .460 Rowland instead. What can I say, I love Sigs but I never ever planned on owning a 1911 either.

    Yep! Glock always beats "911 what's your emergency? Please hold..."

    For those who don't already know I am a Glock guy, I love my 22 and how simple it is and the fact its tough as nails. I feel like the 1911's look to big and wouldn't like having the hammer back.

    There is a reason why 65% of LEOs use Glocks, wanting to become one myself, I trust what they trust: http://us.glock.com/products/sector/law-enforcement
