    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.

    When someone mentions what is considered to be a reasonably nice pistol in the context of "never buy", my curiosity pegs the gotta-ask-why meter. I have one, and I wouldn't sell it or trade it for anything.

    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.

    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.
