My thoughts: I been trying to decide which gun i should get next and i am in between these two. I probably will not buy another handgun for a while, so I would be sticking with this for quite some time. I know the two are vastly different. My purposes is to have a gun for the range and the house. I probably will not be carrying at all, but if i do, I have a thin frame and usually wear form-fitting clothing. The colt would be best in this situation as it would go in my pocket, where as the glock would have to be IWB. what draws me to the colt is i like SA trigger better, its smaller, and i think its looks great. the glock on the other hand is appealing b/c it is thin, takes "abuse", its .45, and it undercuts the colt's price quite a bit. I feel like the colt is something i would keep forever, even once i get my hands on a larger caliber pistol, whereas I would sell the glock when I upgrade to a 1911. the practical side of me says glock b/c i'll be shooting .45s in the future, its cheaper, and the colt would probably be resting in the safe once i get a 1911. with that said, im leaning towards the colt at this point. I'll give both a try at the range later this week.
