Some friends of mine have a mixed marriage. She's a Glockophile, and he's a 1911oholic.

They've managed to make it work anyway.

Can't we all get along??


"Hey, Tom -- when I get home, I'm cleaning one Glock. You've got three 1911s to clean tonight, don't you?" -- pax, in a taunting mood

For bears or zombies? We need more information.

Get a Glock and out of the box you can fire 10,000 rounds with no problems.
Get a 1911 and it's up in the air as to your being able to use it for long before it goes to the gunsmith.....

If I am out and about and need a weapon I want to know that it will work all the time.

Just my 2 cents.... :)

Get a 1911! (I'm first to say it for 2005!)

Since someone already said "Get a Glock" first for 2005. :banghead: :D

Happy new yrs Jeff.

January 1, 2005, 09:51 AM
to say get both!
hey its only money.

January 1, 2005, 10:13 AM
Get a OSWBW !!!

Dunno - figured I'd start a new reply to this type of question

Part of my "Probationary Reprobate Status" dealie ;)

January 1, 2005, 11:09 AM
Glock, of course!

OUCH - OUCH - OUCH!!! Stop throwing that fruit. :neener:

Happy New Year, y'all! :D

January 1, 2005, 11:23 AM
(Get the hybrid!) :neener:

All tools will fail no matter the make. I've seen my share of Glocks choke. It's not always limp wristing as the acolytes of Glock Church claim. There's no way that a Glock will ever have the trigger pull of a properly tuned 1911. Tight fitting 1911s need a break in period. Kimber recommends 500 rounds with cleaning and lubing in between.


You've tried them all now treat yourself to a 1911. :evil:

January 1, 2005, 11:51 AM
I'll be first in 2005 to reiterate the Profession of Faith:

There Is No G_d But John Moses Browning and Jeff Cooper Is His Prophet

All Praise to the 1911, the Merciful, the Omnipotent!

:eek: :cuss: :cool: :evil: :scrutiny:

January 1, 2005, 11:51 AM

Is that like an SWMBO?

January 1, 2005, 12:14 PM
A 1911 chambered for .45GAP?..... :neener:

January 1, 2005, 01:02 PM
Get more maybe theyll drop their prices so I can pick up a G34 and G26 :evil:

January 1, 2005, 02:06 PM
:D What if Glock made a 1911 chambered in 357 sig? :eek:

January 1, 2005, 02:16 PM
Probably not in YOUR carbon fiber tacital book of acronyms ... :neener:

Old Smith & Wesson - Blue & Wood

Revolver : blue steel thingy with a cylinder that rotates on axis. No mags, no safeties, no night sights...pull trigger , "bang" - repeat. :p

January 1, 2005, 02:19 PM
Well, if it's time for firsts for the year ...

Neither! Get a SIG.

Sig Sauer - there is no substitute. :)

January 1, 2005, 03:12 PM
Why not that Beretta Storm from AZ?! :neener:

January 1, 2005, 04:15 PM
Yes. :p

January 1, 2005, 04:22 PM
Don't you live in CA?

Isn't it a moot question?

January 2, 2005, 03:52 AM
It should be very well known by now that I love Glocks and hate the 1911. ;)

January 2, 2005, 07:51 AM
You can't drop a 1911 in a river, freeze it, smear it with mud, run an SUV over it, and fire 100 rounds flawlessly out of it. Glocks, on the other hand, can handle that. So HA! to all you 1911 people.

January 2, 2005, 08:27 AM
And Skunkabilly, thy name shall be Pandora, and thou shalt sow confusion and consternation throughout the masses, and they shall be humbled. Get a Ma Deuce. :what: Of course, you'll need someone to carry the tripod for you.

Bet me?

The last Glock owner that got into a "shoot to the first jam" contest with my 1911 lost after 150 rounds.

Once you buy a Glock you really can't do much with it. You're stuck with a ugly, plastic brick with cheep sights and a gawd-awful trigger. Can't reload for them with out blowing yourself up.

There are more type of 1911's out there for more types of shooting than any other gun. Glock will never be able to do that. They will make a wonderful KABOOM sound for you.

Since you can't decide between a 1911 and a Glock, and Glocks & 1911's are chambered in 9mm and .45 ACP.......

We had better move on to another important underlying question in your quest for the holy grail of handguns.
Which is better 9mm or .45 ACP???


January 2, 2005, 12:30 PM
The world is a big place, and many things in it are good. Why does one have to choose between 1911s and Glocks?

If you want to be a well-rounded gun nut, you will have one or more of every different brand, caliber or type of handgun, just for the variety of experience. I can understand disposing of those that are not functional or reliable, but both Glocks and 1911s have many good features and are admired by large numbers of users. Why not own and shoot both, and let them coexist peacefully in your safe? You don't have to take a strong stand in favor of one and against the other.

When I was young and foolish, I started with 1911s, double and single action revolvers, and single action .22 autos. I gradually adopted some DA/SA semiautos. Later in life I boldly bought a Glock, and then another one. I still have more 1911s than Glocks, but admire both types and feel no need to elevate one to "most preferred" status. They all work.

January 2, 2005, 12:58 PM
Lets see brick or pistol, Plastic or steel . Yep! be hard to decide get a bow instead

Get a S&W revolver and it will shoot better, faster and more accurately

January 2, 2005, 03:02 PM

January 2, 2005, 08:22 PM
One in each hand. If the 1911 jams, go with the Glock. :D

January 3, 2005, 11:46 AM
Of course, you'll need someone to carry the tripod for you.

Can I use my Gitzo carbon fiber tripod??

Get a direct line to the Stratigic Air Command. They'll get the job done right ;)

I have both a Glock and a 1911. I say that neither can hold a candle to my CZs!

Whoo hoo! Another 1st! :D

1911. If a Glock KABOOMS it will blow your head clean off. Do you feel lucky? Well do 'ya?

January 3, 2005, 05:34 PM
I guess I am BISHOOTERAL...I love 'em both.

That all depends. I heard the glocks can penetrate dual layers of duct taped ceramic trauma plates, while just the 1911 concussion is enough to kill a man without hitting him with the actual bullet (I read that if a man is unfortunate to get hit by a .45 that it turns him into giblets). It's a tough choice.

January 4, 2005, 04:45 PM
Reasons to get a glock:

They are all plastic (very Durable)
Because they are all plastic they go through metal detectors
Not one, from Ser.#1 to today, has ever malfunctioned
You don't need to clean them or take care of them because they will never malfunction
They can be frozen in liquid nitrogen and immediately be fired upon surfacing
You can encase it in concrete and it will actually shoot its own way out and put itself back in your hands
They shoot underwater
They are accurate
They are even more accurate when shot underwater
When under water and out of ammo, they can be used as a floatation device
When using as a floatation device, don't worry about rust--they are impervious to any and all elements (even deep space)
They shoot very accurately in deep space, especially if it is a C model
They have the best triggers
Their triggers were specialy designed for deep space and deep sea usage
Their black
Their black finish was specially designed so that in deep space, the enemy won't see you coming

..... What reason is there not to get a glock?

..... Oh yeah, it's still not a 1911.

Bring in the new year with VARIETY! 1911's are pretty...can be customized well...come in many models etc.
A a Glock.

I'd much rather caress and cuddle up to a 1911! They're beautiful.

January 5, 2005, 04:56 AM
i was considering the glock but i never was convinced that they really weren't Kabooooming.

I am not sure that they aren't...but how do you know? :banghead:

January 5, 2005, 07:31 AM
Either one will do. They are exactly alike with no differences. ;)

January 5, 2005, 08:51 AM
Revolver : blue steel thingy with a cylinder that rotates on axis. No mags, no safeties, no night sights...pull trigger , "bang" - repeat.
Ahhhh... The original "point and click" interface :p

Glock or 1911?
How about their love child? The springfield XD? :neener: Grip safety, nice trigger, plenty of plastic, it has "Springfield" stamped on it, DAO, Cheaper than a good 1911, Hi-cap mags, and I'd be willing to bet you could run it over with an SUV... :D

Insert Ferris Bueller "it is so choice" soliloquy here.

PS: After a few beers (let's assume guns unloaded), you may be able to convince yourself that the deep blue finish is for tactical low-light operations at sunset.

How about a hot plate of X-Five.

Ruger, "it just plain works" or HK "it just plain works, and cost you a lot of money."

45R, That stainless Sig is one sexy littel minx! What model is that?

January 5, 2005, 11:05 AM
What model is that?

Indeed, I'd like to know about it too. Looks like a P220ST with several souped-up options (mag release button, beavertail, grips . . .).

P. Plainsman
January 5, 2005, 11:55 AM
Ah, I see from another thread that the pistol is an X-Five (which is what 45R said), apparently a purpose-built action shooting sports pistol from SIG. Not necessarily in .45 ACP.
