What is so wonderful about a Glock?
Now don't get me wrong. I've got both. The reason I like a 1911 better is that it fits my hand, it points naturally, it has a great trigger, and a 45acp is an awesome self defense round.
The Glock(23) on the other hand has a higher capacity magazine (13) and an accessory rail. However the grip is too fat, the trigger is lousy (in my opinion) and the point of aim is too high (I have to compensate by bending my wrist which is something I don't want to do in a fight).
So bottom line, the 1911 just suits me better.
To each his own.
BTW, I'm a Ford man also.
