I like the 1911 because of the safety and imporability of accidentally discharging (I know, safe gun is by hand, not by trigger) but, I've heard the glocks are a little more prone to AD. Is this true?
    In a nutshell, no.

    Glocks do have several safeties; they just don't have a thumb safety like a 1911 (a thumb safety can be retrofitted, however). The "safety issue" with a Glock is, quite simply, do not put your finger inside the trigger guard if you have no intentions of firing the weapon. Which, the way I see it, applies to a 1911 (and, for that matter, all firearms) as well.

    IMHO, a Glock and a 1911 have the exact same chances of accidently discharging--which, if they are handled properly, is practically negligable.

    I had the Beretta 92GSD...great gun, but a bit bulky for CCW. I now go between a Glock or a Kimber CDP. You have to decide what feels good in your hand...you can work into the carry part.

    Stay armed...with your choice...stay safe!

    Well, I have two Glocks and a Beretta 92F. They're all great guns; it really boils down to what you prefer. I would get some range time with each before I made a decision.

    So how many times do we have to hear about police shootings with 32 rounds heading into someone's neighborhood with the bad guy never getting hit? I'd rather they carried something that would do the job, train them properly, or get rid of them! It's not the gun, it's the shooter!!!
