"Finally , a topic about shooting
What is different sa glok and 1911?
My friends shoot both w/ no prob naman please relate"
First, these are just my opinions from my experience.
Anybody who had handled a glock and a 1911 can compare the differences b/n these two great pistols. These are quite obvious. From design, manufacturing, materials used, weight, rifling, trigger,handling characteristics, feel, etc. THey are miles apart from each other. Different hardwares need different softwares. At least thats my experience. And logic.
I had learned to shoot a pistol first w/ a glock in 2004. I shot it in Prod div in 9mm then later in Std div in cal.40. In my early days in std div w/ a glock, my buddies and most competitors are one in opinion that I was at a disadvantage w/ a glock competing w/ 1911-equipped shooters. But my belief was that I was at an advantage w/ a gk35. And my match results attested that I was right in my belief. In both divs I had good results w/ a glock.
Then after the Bog Anniv shoot last Nov 2006, I decided that my 2007 new years resolution would be to shoot 1911 in standards.
I thought it would be a walk in the park. But, boy, I was mistaken! As all shooters who are in the same line of thinking, i think. Whatever skills I had for glock, I could not carry them over to my 1911! Oh yes, I can shoot the 1911 in any situation but not in a PPSA sanctioned IPSC match! And w/ not so good results.
In the first 2 months, the moment I drew my para from my rig, my confidence was gone. Its s.a. trigger bothered me so i must be carefull or i might a.d. At presentation, the sights would not automatically align w/ my target as they used to be in my g35 bcos the grip angle is different and its weight is really heavy and balances queerly in my hands. Whenever I had to reload, my thumb must reach out hard to hit the mag release button and my weak hand had to firmly grab the spare mag bcos its much heavier and slippery. Its recoil impulse is different so much so that my glock timing is totally off. The first time I encountered these realities, I nearly gave up. Thought it was easier to return and shoot my g35 and improve on it than to shoot my para but start from square one and learn new technics thats applicable for 1911. The latter option though more difficult in my situation, got the better of me. Now, three mos. into 2007, Im still struggling w/ my para. But Im happy w/ it.
I envy those who can shoot both 1911 and glock w/ profficiency. Me, I have to give up one to learn the other. I can only serve one master at a time. Or maybe, it depends on how I define the word "shoot."
your answer is drifire. Si JR speed. uses a glock sa production and 1911 sa standard. he is very good with both platforms, but practice pa rin ang kailangan.
Currently, I suck at steel with my LDA but im very proficient with my SVI on steel.
this is due to lack of practice/dryfire. But i will concentrate using the LDA till i can see my name in the top 3 in production division like sa standard division.
Ill give it 6 months, If i fail ill sell this sucker and go back to standard division
