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.

Anyway the last issue of the year came out and there is a article title "Kicking Tires On A 1911 Pistol" in which the author helps potential buyers of a 1911 pistol what to be weary of when buying used. I think the article was supposed to excite the reader about buying/owning a 1911 but all it did for me was scare me out of a 1911.

The problems/issues that the 1911 is plagued with has made me realize how blessed I am that I own Glocks and HK's. It made me realize truly how much the polymer pistols have changed the game. The author listed problems such as cracked frames, cracked grip panels, loose plunger tubes, barrel bushing cracks, and even damaged extractors and slide stops are the norm. The author mentioned that these are all common problems with 1911's... Things that should be expected with the 1911 pistol. And this is too throw on top of the more vigorous maintenence you must do to a 1911 to keep it running as effecient as a dirty Glock. I've never owned a 1911, but I've always wanted too just because the cool factor, beauty and history but I think I'll stick with my low maintenence polymer guns.

I know the 1911 guys can get real butt hurt about any bad talk about the 1911 so I'll just apologize now and get it out of the way. I think James Yeager said it best with 1911 guys... "A 1911 that works correctly is just as rare as a Glock that doesn't"... Now let the hate speech rain down on me.
No one is entitled to be ignorant, yet it appears that You are proud of it. Good job there!
