I was looking at the GATE section and it was asked why buy a $1000 gun such as a 1911 vs a $500 glock? - I have a new glock now but im leaning towards a 1911 specifically a kimber pro series. But at the end of the day part of me still says the glock is great, never jams, easy to maintain and high capacity.. - Now at the same time the 1911s are beautiful guns, real craftsmanship, thin frame and still an amazing gun. - I just want to know from the 1911 guys why you went this route, and if you own glocks as well what are some of the pros and cons of each. ( yes i hae searched and read many articles on google but i want to hear what you guys specifically say) Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
