Dear Plano sir, I appreciate the time and trouble you invested to educate me on the 1911 and Glock. To be honest I just skimmed over it. The issue here is not whether one is better than the other.
Personally I like Glocks but don't want one. The Full size 1911 is nice but I don't need an extension for my manhood.
I have a Kahr PM9, Taurus PT111, a little plastic there, but hey I like fake boobs too.
I also have a Taurus M607 and a Taurus PT908, all steel there. Not for any particular reasons except I likem.
The issue here is FUN. Who has Plastic and who has 1911. Now if you want to argue lets talk Harleys vs Honda.
