    I've been saying glock 30 for my first gun when I get my ccw in June. But I recently shot and fell in love with a Springfield armory 1911A1 mil spec and omg it's so purty. :p
    I love 1911s and can deal with the weight for everyday carry. Omg .45 is my baby. Forget double stack mags give me A 1911!

    I won't argue with you - you can carry your 1911.
    I know I could get away with it now that I have a better belt and holster but I had trouble concealing full size when I first started carrying.

    I know what you mean, I sold my Glock 30SF so i could buy a Springfield Loaded. The Glock was to thick for my hands. Then there was no external safety, i trusted the gun, i wasn't sure about me if i had to confront someone.:eek:;)

    I carry one of these all the time, depending on my attire.

    marlin , i was pretty much the same

    our issue was a 9mm hi power ( Browning ) for years and until i actually had to use it in the field , i thought it was enough

    but telling the tale one night with a bunch of your folks ( USMC)

    the gunny took a walk and came back with a 1911 and gave it to me

    i have never found a weapon i have the same respect for ..

    serious ...

    i been a 1911 fan since

    it aint until you need one in the field that you realise how good they be..

    Im just wondering have you shot a glock before? Ive heard alot of people didnt like the glock because of its thickness.I carry a glock 21 45acp.Its really thick but I have very large hands and im a very large person.Im 6'4 and 280 lbs so its perfect for me.I have never shot a 1911 but I think they are beautiful guns.How I ended up with the glock was it was my nephew's gun,he is in the army and he got in some trouble and couldnt have a personal firearm for a year and he sold it to me for $200 dollars.It is brand new and he paid $547 for it so i couldnt go wrong there.Before that deal came along I was looking at a springfiels .40 cal.Wich I will still purchase when I have the extra money but right now my priority is stocking up on survival supplies.Good luck and happy shooting
