    Glock remorse or wishy washy

    I have had 2 Glocks (Gen3 23 and Gen3 30) and have sold them both for what I thought I needed(the 23 was a bit too snappy for my taste). I now have a RIA Tactical Compact. It is a great gun, shoots well, easy to carry concealed(I don't have to go through doors sideways because the grip is so thick(G30). However, after reading all the Glock posts on this forum I am starting to wish I had another Glock in .45acp. This would be my CCW and home defense gun as I don't have the funds to keep the Rock Island and buy another Glock. The 36 would be a great concealed gun but I am not too crazy about the capacity. The 1911 design is timeless and with all the after market stuff for it, it is the AR of handguns. I have read that the smaller frame 1911's sometimes have FTF and FTE issues but hasn't happened to me. The Glock, well its a Glock. Easy to clean, rugged and eats anything you feed it. So I am asking all of you with all of your vast knowledge: "Help, what do I do?"

    Buy a Glock. Buy a Glock 9mm if you want capacity. Pretty easy decision if you ask me

    I can't comment on what you want but the Gen 4 G21 shoots very soft.

    Thanks for the quick response. I need something in .45 because I have a lot of .45 ammo and I don't want to have to eat it. Plus, I like the way the .45 shoots(push rather than jump).

    Sounds like you've set your mind toward the 1911. At times I wish I'd bought a G36 instead of a G30, but I can learn to adapt. It sort of bugs me when folks debate wider vs narrower, when that're only talking a small fraction of an inch either way. I'd like to have a 1911, but it wouldn't be my carry gun.

    As for capacity, it's amusing how going from the G30 10 rounds to a 7-8 round 1911 wasn't an issue, but going from the 1911 to a 6-7 round G36 is.

    I know, it doesn't make much sense . I think what I would really like is a 1911 with Glock durability and reliability. As far as the G36, it is probably the only Glock of which I am not a fan.

    I haven't heard of that. How is it different for the "regular" 30?

    then you want a Glock 30 or 30SF. The G36 recoil unfortunately is not a gentle push, and is much more pronounced than the very soft push recoil of the G30.

    Hopefully I'll get my first Glock soon. I'm looking for a G30, 30SF.
