OP, it's better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

Did this just really happen?
Let's ask one of the most knowledgeable and biggest contributors of info on the 1911 platform what he knows about 1911s. :eek: I have to get me a copy of this magazine and enroll in some personal training from Yeager ASAP!

Recoil magazine??? That's your "go-to" source for information??? Uhm, ok, whatever floats your boat I guess. So, who is James Yeager anyways? Never heard of him. However, I HAVE heard of Chuck Taylor and Jeff Cooper though and both of them were strong advocates of the 1911 so while I have no problems with a Glock, HK, M&P, etc. I also have no problems with the 1911 either. Maybe this Yeager guy just isn't a gun guy and has a lot of problems?

The 1911 design is a good and workable design, there is not denial of that by anyone that looks at the history of the design. It is however, one that is not as simple as the Glock and other striker variants. One issue is that there are lots of manufactures, each has made some changes in the design and materials.
If you buy a new Glock, you know exactly the quality of the parts and the QA on the gun. You also know that based on reputation that Glock will fix any problems.
There are 1911 pattern guns made in many countries sold under many different brands. Most of them seem to be made up of parts from different places and suppliers. Now, if you buy one of the name brand guns then you will probably get a well made tool. However, expect to pay more than the price of a new Glock. I think that probably the exception is the Ruger SR1911 made fully by Ruger in the US and sold at a street price close to a Glock.

My point is that comparing a Glock to a 1911 pattern gun is sort of an apples vs oranges comparison.

The OP probably thought he'd get our whole-hearted support this being a Glock forum and all. Sorry pal Glock owners are well-rounded gun enthusiasts. Id like to see how they'd react on 1911forum.

Sure glocks are generally workhorse pistols & i love all 5 of mine, but they have their share of issues. The 1911 is a timeless work of art. I don't understand how anyone can try & take away from that. Furthermore it's a piece of our history that will never die. Even if the 1911 isn't for you & you don't want to own or shoot one. At least give it a little respect.

I had a G21 that never did run right, even after coming back from the factory.

If simple maintenance is a Glock's forte then why can't I wash it in a dishwasher and have it come out functional?

Or if a Glock is so toughly built then how come the .40 caliber ones kept grenading in people's hands?

Careful Bac, apparently Yeager has started challenging people to duels if they talk smack about him.



Apparently this is the contract you have to sign before said duel.

If Glocks were so great then why didn't they pass the Frisbee Test and had to be redesigned? Oops, I mean "improvements".

Yeah, he's definitely a tool. Very insecure.

Personally, I've never called him a coward. I don't know enough about the guy's history to do that. However, the nonsense the guy spews over and over on Youtube is enough to make him a total joker in my eyes.

The Glock has an important function, it makes me really appreciate the beauty of my 1911s and Hi-powers.

I like Glocks, but pretty they are not.

Actually, most polymers are pretty ugly, in my opinon.

You know you're a noob when you need someone with a "track record" to tell you what you should shoot. You gotta experience it yourself!

I just had to look this fella up because I have never heard of him before. Or whatever this ****ty Recoil magazine is.

I couldn't get passed Mr. Yeagers ums and uhs in his video nor his hideous affliction skulls and wings shirts.

Anyone who takes a position solely on someone elses experiences is a fool. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about with 1911s, being a Glock person as it were (carried a G34 on duty as a LEO) so I bought $5,000 worth of 1911ish badass pistolas and carried them on duty for a few YEARS.

I formed an informed personal opinion based on experience. They are awesome. I sold them all off because I thought I was changing jobs and wouldn't be able to carry them and switched over to a G17 and G26 gen4s.

Glocks work fine. Now that I'm staying in this job with my perfectly functioning Glocks, I am looking for a Wilson SpecOps 9.

From Slaw's disappearance, it seems he could probably give his mentor a run for his money.

I get the same thing from friends regarding 1911's, since my EDC up until recently was a Springfield. "Doesn't it jam all the time? How do you deal with replacing something every time you shoot" etc. My favorite is "I'm not owning something I can't field strip without tools". The mis-information is staggering. All I ever did with mine was replace springs in a timely fashion, same thing I do with my Glock. If I had more $$$, everything I owned would be a 1911, but .45 is expensive to shoot.

That said, I transitioned to a Glock 19 recently for EDC and training etc due to cost to shoot. While its not as sexy, it does its job incredibly well and I'm glad Glock produces a fine polymer pistol at a great price for the masses.
