I dislike shooting Glocks.  I own one only to shoot in GSSF matches.

I'm more of a revolverholic.  The original point and shoot device.  ;)


I was trying to get a rise out of Tom. I used to have a tee-shirt that read "Smith & Wesson. The original point and click interface". I loved that shirt. Wore the damn think out.

I own a 1911 or 17.... I have a few with rails.  I do not like the balance of them with any thing  attached to the rail.   I always shoot low with them.   

So for me personally, I see no reason to have one.
I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

Not a fan of hangin stuff on a pistol.

As a side note;
I talked quite a few guys out of 1911’s last spring.  Simply not a good platform for a new shooter in my opinion.  We had a LOT of new shooters that though they had the right to buy a handgun, probably shouldn’t have!  Some scary folks were buying guns with their shiny new licenses...

The reason for no rail on a 1911 is that 1911 owners aren't afraid of the dark. ;D ;D ;D ;D

25 years shooting USPSA with a 1911 in .45, and estimated 250,000 rounds, bunch of stuff broke, and typically during a major match... switched to the Glock platform after a fitted link broke at Ft Benning 3 gun in 2005... other than a self induced malfunction when I hit a prop with the extended magazine floor plate, never a problem... though since the Area 6 multigun match in 2016, I've been shooting an AR9 for PCC, and .22 rimfire for Steel Challenge...

I carry a G43x and most of my practice is with a G44 (.22lr)

Are you a Glockaholic? I, myself, am a certified boomer. I still love and carry my 1911, although it is a 10mm.

1911/ Glock, the only difference is 80 years of development.
Some people like Model T's, some like Mustangs .     ;D

Great line.....I'm going to steal it for my own nefarious purposes.

It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
