If you ever lived outdoors in a hot, severely humid jungle for an extended period of time, you would better understand the value of owning a Glock from a maintenance point of view. My 1911 required way too much maintenance just to stay functional in that environment. My Glock requires none. None. And my Glock has twice as many bullets and generates the highest energy ft/lbs wise, with 563 ft/lbs.. And with the tungsten spring guide, it recoils WAY less and is far more accurate. And a bottleneck cartridge feeds more reliably. And the hollowpoints I carry reduce overpenetration drastically.
Hey, I love the 1911. But there is no good excuse for dismissing the Glocks
Unless you just want a pretty gun..
But I don't live nor stationed in a Jungle environment so lol. I carry a simple easy to use and maint. Ruger P95. 15 rounds and only takes a few minutes to clean and put back together.
No one here is seriously saying that a Glock is better than a 1911 right? That would just be craziness! The 1911 is the the greatest pistol ever invented. When Glock reaches a 100 years old and is as prolific as the 1911 then we can have a real debate.
