LMAO!!!

I've never had the desire to own a Glock. I know, I know...but I'm a bit of a 1911 fan anyway.

Not a plastic fan, tons of them out there but not my cup of tea. I'll stick with an all metal 1911. They've only been battle tested for over 100 years. I think I have about eight of them.

The one thing (ok, ok, a condom) that you absolutely need to work when you use it...

Weird ... My Glock 17 & 27 have thousands of rounds through them. So do my 1911's ... plural.

I only have 2 1911's but they are good ones: Kimber and Dan Wesson. After picking those up, I put my glock away and haven't touched it in quite a while. I want to continue to build up my 1911 stockpile.

I've owned three Glocks in my lifetime. I fail to understand how dry firing a striker fired pistol loosens the slide. I guess we'll see more write-up on the issue.

I've migrated to the Sig-Sauer P229 (9mm) because I prefer its grip angle compared to Glocks. I'm simply more accurate with the Sig.
