However, if one examines the mass/velocity products of various calibers the seldom mentiioned .357 Mag. produces more energy ("stopping power"). That should fire somebody up, but it's true, particularly if we take +P out of the equation. Glock vs. any good quality 1911: IMHO I've seen more malfunctions on the range with Glocks than the 1911 with the exception of older military 1911's. Glocks seem finicky about ammunition, even stovepiping etc. with rounds from the same lot. My Kimber is not finicky at all. Not one malfunction in over 1,800 rounds of mixed bag factory ammo. A Glock is generally cheaper than a custom 1911. I've had a life long love affair with the 1911 so I'm probably biased on the subject.

    P.S. I suspect that magazine springs might be the root cause of many malfunctions. Kimber magazines are suspect as are the factory Glock mags.

    Gee Buz...I hope I didn't rub you the wrong way here, but I was just adding spice to my post. We're all friends here, and that's what makes this Forum so oustanding. We have a lot of members, and the number keeps growing. BTW.GLAD to see you registered and came onboard with us
    I was waiting for QK to post something about Glock Ivory Grips..Maybe somebody will mill out the panels on their Glock, and insert that Ivory stuff.. Personally, I've owned em all, from soup to nuts, but there arn't too many guns that I don't like, except for one Sterling 22 pistol, which I caled the "Jam-a-matic"

    You men sound like my wife with all of that 'but that gun isn't pretty.' I bet y'all paint pretty pink roses on the barrel too.

    I have never seen, nor experienced this. No mater what people think about Glocks, they acknowledge their reliability. Its legendary. I cant get mine to malfunction. The 1911 is a great gun, but I have seen plenty of malfunctions in them, and have had a few of my own.

    You know, I must be from Mars.

    I'm not an amazing fan of the 1911 or the Glock, but I own and shoot both alongside other guns.

    Then again, I just like guns.

    I'm Not Sure

    But, I think JT really likes GLOCKS a lot.
    Really I don't have any major complaints about any Glocks.

    My very minor complaints are:
    I don't like finger grooves on any front strap.
    I wish the grip angle more closely matched the Colt 1911.
    I think they feel a little too "blockish" in the grip.

    Functionally & even esthetically I honestly don't have any complaints.
    I also think the GLOCK trigger system is extremely safe.
    I don't think that Glocks are any more prone to NDs than any other firearm.
    I really think they are fantastic, safe, and wonderfully uncomplicated firearms.
    I think anybody would be hardpressed to find an overall more reliable firearm.

    Honestly, I dont think this thread is meant to stir up trouble. I think its an intervention!! JT, we think you might be a Blockoholic.
