    I would pick the 1911, I dont like the grip angle on glocks. Thats 100% personal preference though
    Springfield Armory XD 9mm service
    Sig Sauer P250c 9mm

    I'm a big fan of the Springfield 1911s. I don't own one, but I have shot them and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not really into glocks, but I do understand they are reliable, so I gotta say go with your gut. I would not choose 10mm though, as ammo is less available, harder to shoot, and more expensive.

    Honestly, I wouldn't pick any of the 3, but simply because of the size. If I could carry all 3 w/o the size being an issue, I'd pick the 1911. But this is just personal opinion and bias. I don't see how it'd help you decide.

    A moderator would have to do it at this point.

    The Springfield 1911 for sure. I want the single action trigger, the safety, the all steel construction, .45 ACP, and the familiarity of a design I've shot for years.

    I have a SA Mil-Spec, I like it a lot. Highly recommend the 1911. I've never been comfortable with the Glock...but I'm in the minority on that one.

    I would pick the Springfield 1911 45 ACP. I like 1911s, SA and steel frame.

    These are all big guns. I do own and often carry a Springfield 1911.

    Least amount of rounds out of the three, but a little thinner to conceal.
