Encourage one another and build one another up. Pray without ceasing. Test everything. Keep what is good. Avoid all evil. -1 Thess 5:11,17,21,22
That's what a Glock feels like to me . I don't even consider what a tool looks like but what it feels like in my hand . I don't use sights until I get out past a hundred feet or so and the way it fits in my hand is 98% of the deal to me . That's why you will find me toting a 1911 most all the time . Point & shoot is feeling your gun .
As a ‘damn furriner’ I’d just like to point out that ‘your’ love affair with both the 1911 and the AR platform is … entirely cultural, to the extent it has (thanks mostly to the effect of Hollywood) become a “matter of faith”. (Remember the days when everyone lauded/carried a 38 as the pinnacle, for the very same reasons?). It’s much like the universal (almost religious) pandering to the eastern martial arts, but when you look at just who actually wins in MMA fights it’s … basically anyone ‘but’ those using eastern arts.Hey, I understand. I am issued a P226, but still hanker for my old Hi-Power (P-35) as it was what I first trained with, is part of the ‘mythos’ of my (cough!) unit, you get the ‘old school’ vibe (although I tend to get that personally being old enough now to be almost a grandfather to my troopers, sigh) and (as a direct result) just ‘feels’ better (and predictably as a consequence I can still shoot better with it – so still carry one ‘on my own time’). Both platforms (having had the most money and time spent on developing them in history, dwarfing even the F-35 boondoggle, or your average carrier) should, by now, be ‘perfect’, yet they aren’t. The debate, when you boil it down to essentials, is mostly … “It’s best because ‘I’ like it”. Well guess what? Just like your taste in music, or fashion, I … don’t care.As to your suggestion? I respectfully suggest that a more appropriate analogy would have the 1911 as the “older” woman (after considerable plastic surgery, implants and wearing make-up so thick it cracks if she smiles, wearing some skimpy ‘young thing’ dress - "mutton dressed as lamb" as it is known here).She may still be ‘hot’, but being honest the only people who would choose her over the ‘actual’ pretty young things are … fetishists (or possibly “older” guys).Ducking and covering as I type lol (yes, I always win the coveted regimental wooden spoon for ‘stirring’ above and beyond ...)
The Glock 19 is the stake-in-the-ground all others are compared to, and for good reasons.I also like stirring the pot.
Being good with what you have is critical. A safe queen is unlikely to be at hand when things get frisky. A 22 garden gun stops the predator better than a run to the house gun.
Very true. With kids at home, the only readily available firearms when I'm at work are .22's kept for varmint control. The real fighting guns are either in a push button handgun vault or tumbler full sized gun safes and unlikely to be used for defense if dad is not around..
I am able to create $45 per hour to complete a few jobs on a home computer.
