We talk about this bullshit every day and no one ever reaches a conclusion.

That's like comparing apples and oranges!

Which ever makes you happy, matters not to me. I have both and am not fanatical either way. Both have their strong points and weaknesses, both fine choices. Actually theyt are the only two I'd consider for IPSC/IDPA games. Bill Happiness is a warm gun... Bang bang, shoot shoot...

Prefer Glock and need to up the post count. 1911 is nice but dollar for dollar spent the Glock is more reliable IMO.

Actually, I think garden Weasel was the only one who got what I was driving at. I may have been a litte too subtle. My point was that there are already many threads running on this. It was not my intent to start another real one. I apologize. Please continue to flog the dead horse.

Have a KIMBER need a GLOCK...which caliber?
Link Posted: 8/31/2001 7:16:39 PM EDT
If you really like your 1911 and want a Glock, I'd get the 35. It's almost exactly the same size as a gov't model, has a longer slide than the 22 so you can press-check it, and has a nice (3.5 lb) trigger that makes it a joy to shoot.

When I took Defensive Handgun 1 at Thunder Ranch approx half of all guns were Glocks. Those guys with Glocks just kept shooting and shooting throughout the whole week, with no jams, utter reliability and tiny little groups. About 30% of the rest of the guns were 1911's. Those guys were continually swearing. Swearing at all the continual jams, mis-feeds, poor groups, and utter UNreliability. The instructors were laughing about how much swearing and problems the "1911 guys" were having. If you want to really know, then take a week long shooting course, shoot one of the weapons for 8 hrs a day for five days for over 2000 rounds. Then repeat it with the other weapon. I absolutely guarantee you that after you've done this that you'll go with the Glock. Absolutely guarantee it.

If you take enough training courses and shooting qualifications you will see every type of pistol malfunction. I've seen it all, yes even Glocks jamming, it happens. Most jams are due to crappy ammo or crappy mags or user neglect or user error. Whatever gun you choose, learn how to use it, feed it good ammo and don't trust your life on crappy after-market mags and keep it lubed.

I fired a friend's Para-Ordinance..quite nice actually. But for me I'll stay with the Glock. If Glock didn't make a .45, I'd probably look to the Sig P220... - Robbie

I have never been impressed by 1911's, I own a Glock 21 and a sig 221 and I'm very pleased. Everyone I know who can own a handgun has a 1911, there is nothing so amazing from the 1911's I have shot compared to what I already own. If I ever get a 1911 it will be one I build myself from a tannery frame.

Hmmmm. Seems to me that you all or confusing one tiny thing. A Glock is Double action only and a 1911 is a single action firearm. They are in 2 different class's.But I own 2 1911's one a Kimber and the other is a Parordanance, and i also own a Glock 22. They are all nice, But one thing i do know is that any gun will jam. My Glock jammed today in an IDPA match, and it wasn't the ammo. 1911 are the fastest to fire, Cocked and Locked what else is there.Just say YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee­eee HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and buy both one for carry and the other far varmints around the house (the kind that walks on 2 feet}.

Double Tap. Sorry. Must have been typing with a 1911. Never happen with a GLOCK.

Still twitching !?!?!?

Ive said it once and I will say it again, Kimber .45 all the way. unless you are a bad shot and need 15 rounds well get the Glock.

Yes. Why ask why? Why not own both?

Heres the hole in that theory - a Glock is a Glock...but a 1911 does not have a specific manufacturer. From Kimber to Charles Daly...some brands have great reputations and are VERY well made and accurate...other cheaper brands are not so. So before casting a blanket statement on ALL 1911s, lets look at the manufacturers. A Kimber can hang with a Glock NO problem...in the situation you described the 1911 guys were probably using cheaper brands.

Like I said, love my Kimber. I aslo have a Glock 22 but prefer to shoot my Kimber over the Glock any day.

Glock. If that Mall Ninja guy only realized how much his photo would be passed around when it was taken...........

Neither. Get a SIG or HK. [+]:D] Tyler
