    Actually Polish I think the old guard of 1911 lovers are closer to the long gone royal dynasties. You know in the OLD days you had to do it their way.

    But now people have risen to over throw the oppressive rule of the OLD ways!!! The King is DEAD!!! It took 100 years for the 1911 to become what it is, only to find out that it has already been surpassed.

    As for "Glockies" being like (gag) liberal Democrats, It is you 1911 types useing the Lib Dem. hand book of useing of throwing names and useing old and ineffective arguments. As far as your wife haveing enought tubberware, try taking it away from her!!!

    Ther is a reason you water gun is plastic, the reason is that a steel gun could not do the job as effectively as a plastic.

    As far as tortureing your POOR lovable cats :( , they have a message for you, hold still for justttt a second, ;) :D ;) :D :D :D :D

    I am a 1911 fan.

    I've not gone to insulting GLOCKheads, other than to call them GLOCKheads when we get into these discussions. As a matter of fact, I have repeatedly stated that my preference for a 1911 is purely subjective.

    HOWEVER, I object to the constant proselytizing that the GLOCKheads engage in whenever anyone disagrees with their choice. It tends to make one wonder if they are actually secure in their choice, since they seem to need to reinforce it so loudly all the time.

    My wife and I had a choice when we first picked out a handgun. We looked at several choices. The GLOCK was one of those choices.

    We didn't pick the GLOCK. It actually felt HEAVIER when we held it than the all-steel CZ75BD. Later on, I thought about why that should be and realized it had to do with balance. You *have* to have some steel in a handgun. You just can't make one out of all polymer, yet. GLOCK puts all their steel in the slide and barrell. Since the frame is polymer, the gun felt heavy because it felt out of balance in our hands. We also didn't like the blocky grips. SWMBO has larger hands than I do and she didn't find the GLOCK comfortable. So, we chose the CZ75, instead. It was more comfortable and felt lighter in our hands. Was this an insult to the talent of GLOCK? Nope. Just a choice.

    Later on, I had a chance to try out a 1911 made by Kimber. I fell in love with the gun. It felt right and shot like a dream. Sure, it's got a smaller-capacity mag than the CZ or a GLOCK. But I still like how it fits in my hand and how well I can shoot with it. So I bought one and have enjoyed owning it ever since.

    Would I ever buy a GLOCK? Don't know. If this GLOCKhead foolishness keeps up, probably not. I tend to be a contrary cuss. Keep pushing something at me and I'll tell you to go to heck and might even give you directions.

    Geeze, not only do you like tupperware, but you guys have minds like collanders. Seems to me I remember another thread here that had a calling to take on another member of the Staff and try to convert him because you all had bad intel and couldn't get anything right. When you found out who you should have been dealing with, then all heck broke loose! Remember this???????????????

    Brought to you from the first thread by none other than good ole PS! :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :p

    In all seriousness as long as you exercise your 2nd amen. rights, I don't care if a Clerk .22 is your favorite. You are right it is a matter of choice. If it feels good, you preform well with it, keep it.

    NOW that said, GLOCKHEADS!!!!!! :eek: :eek: Us progressive types are not forceing anything on anybody.. We are defending our selfs from overbearing royalist who want to discriminate against us and not let us, gentler, progressive types, that's Glock Enthusiast to you, have our own forum. :p :D ;) :D :D :D

    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. :p :D 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. ;) :D I have a Kahr PM9, Taurus PT111, a little plastic there, but hey I like fake boobs too. :rolleyes: 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. :cool:

    "Now if you want to argue lets talk Harleys vs Honda"
    that's no fun !! they'd just take the same posts and swap "harley" for "1911"
    and we'd be right back where we started :D
  12. A most astute and incisive observation, Wide. I do think you may have hit the nail squarely on its head, as it were. Where is Mr. Freud when you need him? :D :p :eek:
  13. OK, hold on, calm down, and back up just a bit, both of you. It would seem the two of you have let this discussion evolve from what was intended (and, I think, taken by most of us) to be nothing more than something to have a few laughs over, to something that has serious meaning. If that impression is correct, then I must sincerely apologize for starting the first thread and contributing to this one. Give me a break, guys, I posted the "Marlin" thingy just to try and rib Marlin a bit, a guy whom I've come to know, resepct, and like a great deal here on TFF. The two of you, I might add, also fall into that same category. Was I trying to convert any of you to Glock aficionados? Hell no! That will never happen, and frankly, I couldn't care less. I've said before, and I will say again, both types of weapon have their proper place in the scope of things, in my honest opinion at least. I own and shoot 1911s and I own and shoot Glocks. Argument and discussion are the essence of human exchange, and laughter is the lubricant.

    Hey PS! I take no offense at any of this. I just like having these ribbings cause it has always happened and will not stop. Since the weekend, my machine at home had a problem and I cannot use the emoticons or any of the other shortcuts here when posting. This does not bother me and I guess I left out the emoticons when I posted what you quoted. Sorry if you took it wrong or if I posted it wrong. Now, get back to arguing! ;) :D :D :D :D :p

    No animosity intended here at anyone, all in good clean, well maybe not all clean ;), fun. I'm no gun fanatic by any means. Just like to shoot, rag on brothers whether it be guns, bikes, or their wives. :D :D :D :D :D :D . And I do appreciate any info I pick up here. :) The only thing I like better than taking a punch is giving one. :D
