AR180shooter, I'm curious, why not the 770?

IMO, GLock is on of the most safest pistols. 3 safeties and the last final saftey, No trigger pull, Gun wil not fire. Like it has been said before by Shadez. Not really needed to say/type again, but I felt like posting.

Easy one for me, those old military guns like Mausers and the like. I see them as nothing but tomato stakes. If I could figure out how to do it my Icon would be a picture of a garden with Mausers stuck in the ground and tomatos tied to them.

I can't see why people just don't save their money and buy a real gun.

And I realize we all don't have the same likes.

I could understand one or two old rifles like those Muasers and Mosins. But entire collections? Not a ton of value I would think and there are so many new guns that can be played with.

Rhino revolver, just about the ugliest oversized thing I have ever seen.
Other than that I have learned never say never, but Taurus is on my very bad list from previous experience.

Or, it's not ergonomically suitable. I prefer a different grip angle myself. I don't hate Glocks, I just don't want one.

Their similar appearance is the nature - and primary benefit - of the rifle. No matter how it's configured or chambered, they all work the same. It's kinda like Microsoft Windows. It presents a common standard user interface that allows the user to be instantly familiar with it.

So what's the difference between the grip angle of the 1911 that you own and a Glock?

Probably anything that had any amount of rust. I have a high tolerance for taking care of your guns. If I had to pick a new gun, it would probably be an ak. I would take one, but would never spend the money on one when I could get a gun with a receiver similar to a garand.

A Glock doesn't point as naturally for me as a 1911. I've shot Glocks, and have no real complaint about the pistol other than it's grip angle. And like I said, it's not that I don't necessarily like them, it's just that I don't want one.

If the guy I was responding to said "the 1911 platform", I would have let that go because it may have been an ergonomic reason which encompassed all 1911's, but he singled out Springfield, so I was curious as to why he would say something about what is widely considered to be a 1911 of reasonable quality made by a company with a history of decent customer service.

I could even understand not liking the Sig 1911 due to its external extractor and wider slide, but the Springfield 1911's are standard 1911s, just like everyone else's.

Anything with a flappy trigger safety, but especially glock for popularizing the stupid thing. There's a handful of pistols I would love to own but never will because I can't stand those stupid triggers.
^This ^

Trigger safety is the most retarded thing I have ever seen on a gun.

I do not have a "Do Not Buy" list. If I have any doubts about it functioning in a life or death situation I stay away. I have probably missed some buys but if it is considered a Saturday Night Special I would not take it on a bet.

Revolvers that shoot shot gun shells, I just don't see the point. I have a shotgun for shotgun shells.

Revolvers with no hammer, just looks really.

Of course I wouldn't turn one down if I was given one, just wouldn't buy one is all.
