    I found this on TOS. Kind of interesting. I do have to agree with the idea, as what he says about the 1911 is true. The Glock and 1911 are still my two favorite pistol platforms, so the article isn't swaying my current opinion about either. Ironically, the quote in my signature is from Larry Vickers. Ande I agree with it. Although, I bet Larry has never seen or owned a hardchromed lawnmower. :)

    Apparently my Brown is junk. I haven't sent it in to a smith for a pricey overhaul. I need to sell it immediately and get a Glock since they work.

    No wait........my Kobra Carry goes BANG every single time I pull the trigger. :dunno:

    Didn't you read that article? :dunno: Just give it time. Apparently it won't be long before your KC is gonna go belly up someday and then you can sell it and buy a whole herd of Glocks. :rofl:

    I think the point is that yes, it is a fine gun. However, when you are back where the hoot owls bang the chickens and no armory support there are more self serving choices. Remember, he was in Delta and they can't just fly in a trained armourer on a whim when they are on a secret op.

    Yeah, I guess my lube...shoot...clean...lube...shoot...clean...etc is going to fail at some point then I will have to sink a grand into it to make it run right, after I wait 4 years for a good smith. :crying:

    Many things in that article made me roll my eyes.

    All I care about is my own thoughts and confidence in the gun(s) I choose to carry. I could care less about what anyone else thinks.

    All I know is I have 500 rounds through mine as of today, and not a single failure....period. Stock 7 round Brown mags and a variety of ammo. :dunno:

    Larry helped to develop the HK45, and he prefers to shoot a Glock! Kinda says it all

    There was an article I linked a while back that was an interview with LAV and KH about the development of the HK45 and he said some interesting stuff in it. Oh and by the way, it's junk until you send it to Bowie Tactical to get the *cough cough* Vickers trigger job. :upeyes:

    What the hell does an HK45 have to do with a 1911?:dunno:

    It's the best .45 plastic gun you can get, and can be carried Condition1 like the 1911. I think that's what he was getting at. :thumbsup:

    About what? By that logic, should I sell what I own and prefer to buy a bunch of Glocks because Larry Vickers likes them?

    I'd say the exact opposite.

    I think these days LAV is getting paid, and that dictates a lot of what he says. :whistling:

    Brian, he had it right. Just had the arrows in the wrong direction.

    Glock < HK < 1911
