Well I don't know how many times posts like this have been posted but I couldn't find anything when I did a search. I have been carrying for years and the oh say the last 9years I've carried Glocks G30 and the G21 I like 45's. I have recently started getting into 1911's And purchased a Kimber pro raptor II and a Springfield loaded. Both very nice and very accurate I have a 1000 rds thru each, without any problems. I want to start carrying those now instead of glocks and the feeling of the darn things not going bang when I want them too is almost as bad as a neggy women. How long does it take to get comfortable with a different platform? Is there some opinions on the reliability of the 1911 and glocks? When I strip down my 1911's there simple and look like they couldn't fail. Thanks a head of time for all your constructive replies!
