    I am debating on whether or not to get a G21 or a 1911 pistol to shoot CDP? I do not see alot of Glock shooters in CDP. What are some of your opinions on this?? I love the Glock, and not so much the 1911. Are there advantages and disadvantages?

    The 1911 is mechanically faster than the Glock. That doesn't mean you can't be competitive. If you like the Glock buy it. You can also shoot it in SSP and ESP.


    If you are looking for the gun best suited for CDP the 1911 is the way to go.

    G21
    Advantages :
    1.Big mouth magwell compared to skinny singlestack.
    2.Light weight .
    3.Very accurate out of the box.
    4.Grip size can be reduced to something more managable .
    5.Aftermarket trigger jobs available.
    6. Can compete in SSP/ESP

    Disadvantages:
    1.Sized for NBA player hands(see no. 4 above).
    2.Grip reduction takes you out of SSP but still permits play in
    ESP @10+1 & CDP @8+1.

    just off the top of my head for now..

    given cost is the huge differance. meaning. a 2k 1911 (springfield pro, les baer, ect.) will out shoot the glock every day of the week. heck even lesser guns, around 1k will.

    usually, from MY experience. the only way ANY glock will compete with a "upper end" 1911 is with an aftermarket barrel. and even then its so so. IMHO.

    I shot my 21 in SSP for almost a year. I shoot at the top of SS class with it.

    Just for a grin, I tried it in CDP, and to my surprise, I did better than quite a few veteran 1911 shooters. Granted, I still am in SS class in CDP, but am very close to EX times.

    How you perform in a given class depends totally on the shooter, the type of gun makes no difference. Shoot whichever one you like more, you will place the same.

    Simply not true.

    There is no magic gun or holster that will make you a master class or grand master shooter, but your equipment does matter.

    well, put. for instance i shoot ppc .(stationary, timed target shooting) i can shoot 550's avg. out of 600 with my glock 34. but can pull 590's with a custom 1911, ppc smith revolver...


    in some instances the gun makes a world of differance, but for fast moving games it usually doesnt... (within reason)

    I would much rather have a G21 in CDP than a 1911. Tons better IMO. I have a custom 1911, 2 actually, but neither one will shoots like that glock. Its reliable, easier to load, and its easier to shoot. The glock trigger is better than the 1911's too.

    Its the shooter and not the equipment. I was shooting with Matt Burkett a whiel back and we traded guns on a stage. I'm shooting $3K+ race gun, and he had my G35. HE STILL SPANKED ME. My times were only marginaly better with the race gun than they were with the open gun.

    You shoot IDPA ESP SS. If he hadn't beat you with a sling shot, he would have used his last round on his temple.

    Actually, I was referring to last years SC IDPA match where you shot SSP MM.
