1911 all day for me. It's a better ergonomic design & my Colt has an amazing trigger. Just love the look and feel of it. But I do have a Taurus 40 S&W and a Springfield XD-9, so I don't hate plastic pistols either. Just never liked Glock much.

1911. Because God, John Browning, and .45.


Oh, and glocks suck.

For a short answer and a bit of humor-




I have both and like both, but carry a full size Les Baer SRP. Why?

1. I can reliably control my shots better with it than any other pistol I have tried through the years including other 1911's.

2. It is at least as reliable my G19 and more reliable than my G36.

3. Ergos are vastly better for me than the Glocks, which are Gen 3's.

4. Ran an informal test on feral pigs. 9mm ricocheted off of the skull. 45 ACP blew a big hole in the head.

5. The sight of a full sized 1911 cocked and locked inspires changes in plans of the person at the business end.

I will carry a Glock on rare occasions, and they have grown on me, but if I have to trust my or my wife's life to a pistol, the Les Baer is what I want in my hand.

1911 of course. why?

it was invented by an American Genius, it's been kicking *ss for over 100 years and still going strong and God Carries one.

the Block was invented by a foreigner, it's ugly, it's bulky and it's the first choice of mall ninjas.

I'd go 1911 as well. The grip angles on Glocks don't sit right with me for some reason. I've always thought 1911's are the prettiest pistols made.

You already have a fancy 1911 and you bought a glock

I have several 1911's and am looking at another one because I like them....like the way they feel in my hand...aiming is as natural and comfortable as pointing your finger.....I have a Bersa Thunder in .40 I use as a truck gun...love it for what it is...great value....

I have never liked Glocks, just don't....feel the same about the beretta 92f....I think they are a POC compared to a 1911....I was an armorer in an infantry company when we transitioned from 1911's to 92f's....they sucked then and they suck now...same as a glock...I will never own either... 2cents

I also like the fact that 1911's are the AR's of the pistol world.....you can configure/accessorize however you want from a stock inexpensive truck gun to a high end super target pistol....over 100 years of continued success for a reason...they are great and John Moses Browning's genius lives on thru every single one of them....

Guess I'll be the lone dissenter and choose Glock for everyday carry... A glock costs less, is reliable, and is a simple firearm. I don't need a light, match grade trigger on a carry gun, so the consistent trigger pull on the Glock works just fine for me.

The best of both worlds, 1911 style and hi-capacity mag's, the Browning Hi-Power for the win.

1911 will always be my first choice. Comfortable, accurate, reliable and deadly. The Glocks that I have handled and shot just never felt right in my hand. Love a .45 acp, my every day carry is an XDS in .45 strictly for size and weight

Had variety of both, kept the full size 1911.
Glock 17 Gen4 was a nice shooter but I never could get comfortable carrying a loaded Glock due to lack of a hard safety.
