    yet another new family member

    well i took the plunge and went to the dark side......traded one of my 1911's for a Glock 23 3rd Gen and 100bucks. Its in great shape and hasent had that many rounds shot through it. Its previous owner is one of my best friends, so i know the gun hasent been beat on alot, anywho im now a first time glock owner and see many great days ahead with my new addition . ill get some pics up later this afternoon, oh yeah the gun feels great in my hand, probably imho one of the best user friendly/fitting weapon ive handled




    I know its wrong but it feels so right

    Tyler, you are a brave soul by admitting trading in your 1911 for a plastic gun. I think our resident 1911 acolytes will give you flak for that. dude, the glock is a great gun... great to conceal and easy to shoot. there are a bunch of hicap mags still out there; so get some. 7-8 rounds of .45 vs. 13 rounds of .40. IMHO, you made a good trade. enjoy the glock.

    You should have kept both, but if not possible...you certainly traded into some dependability.
    Nice purchase.

    thanks in all honesty i didnt have the 1911 i truely wanted, so i traded it for the glock i wanted. I have a fund set aside, because i believe if you purchase a 1911 you wait and purchase the one custom made to you, im setting back probably a little over a grand to get the 1911 that fits me every way imaginable

    I say you made a good trade. As bad as i want a new 1911, they are a gun of the past and are quickly being made into a thing of the past.

    Right on to the OP, if you have guns you aren't happy with then you should use them to get guns you are happy with. I do agree that you need a good Glock and a good 1911. After all, the 1911 is one first and oldest combat pistols.

    Good trade. I'd let go of a fickle 1911 (talking one gun here, not the 1911 design, calm down boys) for a good Glock any day. Enjoy it.
