I normally carry a G21SF. The problem is that I still love my 1911's. I have a couple that are basic models, which is my preference in 1911's, and are perfectly dependable so far. I've got an unknown amount of rounds through my 1911's without a failure. I didn't keep track on these guns. My 21SF has over 10,000 rounds through her without a failure. She feeds anything and everything. Shoots ALMOST as good as the 1911's. Not sure if it's the guns or just me shooting better with the 1911's. My dilemma is this... 14 rounds of 45 in the Glock. Perfectly dependable and durable. Wouldn't get upset if she got banged around and beat up. Simple to use and take apart. But alas... not much soul. Sort of like not really any class or distinction to a Glock. 1911 people will understand. Even the basic models of 1911's have the quality and distinction that only a gun such as these can have. I don't feel undergunned with 7 or 8 rounds of 45 with me. Add a spare mag and why would I need more? But... I still end up carrying the Glock and leaving the 1911's in the safe. They are not happy and neither am I. Anyone else deal with this or even want to chastize me over this??? Give me your thoughts.
