Resolved: the Glock is a graceless, ugly sidearm, not especially well-balanced. While dependable, the family of weapons has an unpleasant trigger and offers the primary virtue of being equally clumsy in any shooter's hands.
If you can shoot well with a Glock, you'll shoot well with anything else -- and if you were me, you'd favor the latter choice.
Sure, the 1911 is an old, old design; but "new" "plastic" and "ugly" does not necessarily add up to "better. " Lighter on the belt, which I guess counts if you think of a handgun as a sort of elaborate concho.
After the small spate of 1911-bashing posts, I thought it was only fair to get in some licks for the traditional side. --Y'know what else is different about a cocked-and-locked 1911? You can't get an ND with a single ill-favored twig through the trigger guard!
