    Thanks for sharing your hard earned knowledge to all of us on this forum. Seems I think of new questions everyday....yet you seem never to tire of answering them!
    Your views on the Glock or 1911 as to if one has any advantage over the other or disadvantage, for both self-defense and lawenforcement use?
    I currently carry a 1911 most of the time, but have always had and loved Glocks. My BUG is a G27 while my duty weapon is a 1911, also carry the 1911 off-duty and sometimes my G36 if circumstances dictate.
    Thanks for you time and knowledge!

    Two classic handguns of our time, each with its own attributes, and each hugely popular.

    Kinda like Archie choosing between Betty and Veronica.

    Good news in this theater is that neither the Glock nor the 1911 will get jealous of one another, so you can have a meaningful relationship with them both.

    Enjoy and be safe,
