    Can I ask what's there difference in terms of power,durability and accuracy? I did read that most members in this forum now use a 1911 pistol rather than a glock. What kind of ammunition do 1911 specializes in, specially in competitions? Is it a 9mm, a 40S&W or a 45.acp? Thx

    hehe

    This is like asking kung sinong mas kyut - mestisa o morena.

    In othere words, as Americans say, it's a blonde vs brunette question.

    Get them both !!

    "Glock vs 1911?"

    Just don't ask "Glock vs 1911?" question to a sales-personnel that sells all glocks or go to another store which sells all 1911s. ;f

    Baka mas maguluhan ka. ;f

    The thread can easily go for a hundred pages. Each gun has its strengths and weaknesses. Others buy guns due to budget constraints. Others just pick their guns because of how well it shoots in their hand/s. It's like comparing your girlfriend to your neighbor's girlfriend. IN the end, away lang yan.

    actually i have both the 1911 Colt Mark 4 series 80 (45cal) and a glock 23 mariner (40 cal). So far, incomparable yung dalawa. i guess its cause both guns have their own strengths and weaknesses. However, all i can say is that both guns are good. When you speak of styling, i like the glock better than the 1911. In terms of ammo preference, i like the 1911 more than the glock cause glocks are indeed choosy. Again, both guns have their own advantages and disadvantages but if you have just one of them, it will suffice. Other than the two, i also have an HK usp compact 9mm. I also love this gun but among the three, i prefer the Glock above all..if you ask me why, i dont know...I just love it.

    This is exactly the reason why I love this forum.

    For the past few years there has been no debates about

    1. Glock vs 1911
    2. .45 vs. the 9mm
    3. revolvers vs. autos.
    4. mouse guns vs. full size guns.
    5. single action vs. double action
    6. brand this vs. brand that

    glockrecoil : no need to apologize! this question came across this forum and other forums before. so what i think the others are saying is that this has been asked before and found out there is no definite answer. it would boil down to personal preference. canon vs nikon?

    Huh? I find my 1911s are pickier about ammo than my Glocks and I find my 1911s easier on the eyes than my Glocks. Both are good.
