    I would never buy a pistol (for carry) that was as old as the 1911. I know a lot of people are in love with the thing but, jingoism aside, it's not that wonderful a weapon (like the fact that it has problems loading HPs). Glocks are no miracle themselves, but they're lightweight and as long as you use jackted ammo in factory loads you'll have no problem. USP will be more durable in the long run, but Glocks are about half the cost.
