    Butt ugly and not liked but it works. Are we talking about Glocks or Hi-Points?

    Seriously, I am no Glock fan, but they are good guns for what a gun, when you come down to the crunch, is made for. When things get hot at the modern equivalent of the OK Corral, pretty is not a big factor.

    Ive already had an XD, the trigger safety pinched my finger. Dont care for the grip on the M&P. BIL has one, and it feels stubby in my hands.

    EDIT: I didn't read the post above you where you said you've had an XD. Was going to suggest it, cause my friend got a sub-compact XD9 last year that he let me shoot a little and I liked it better than the Glock.

    You may be in need of an intervention from your TFF family. Better use of your hard earned cash would be to save it for something to attach that Shilen barrel to you're in possession of;)

    Plasitque Pistol ??? Madness, pure madness!!!:crazy:

    I sort of look at my Glock pistol the same way I look at my Zepco fishing real. Not my favorite, not my regular go to, don't brag about having one, will take a lot of abuse and neglect, works when I need it to, and has become a classic.

    My thoughts exactly!!

    I have to say that the XD's are worse than the Blocks.

    That's a great analogy Todd.

    Many years ago, a friend built me a fishing rod. 6-1/2' Lamiglass one pc, and the Shimano bait caster is attached with electrical tape. When I pick it up, I become one with it. That thing is 30 years old, and has never failed me. I can feel the difference between the lead bouncing on the bottom, and a steelhead mouthing a glob of salmon eggs. It's one fugly rig, but I'd not trade it for any other.

    The closest I've to get to a 1911 is my Ruger 22/45 so I really don't have a dog in this fight.

    I've never understood the rabid enthusiasm the two crowds put forth in defending their choice.

    I won't own a Ford, Dodge or Chevy, nor will I shop at WalMart.
    If you do, good on ya!

    My AR has an aluminum receiver, and my Henry's made from Zamac 5. So what? :rolleyes:

    If it works for ya, shoot it.
