No other firearm in history has been on the front lines of military and law enforcement for so long. Even more remarkable is the fact that the pistolís design was finalized in 1910...

Thats because ignorant geezers can't let the past go. I like the 1911. I have a couple. But it isn't the end all to pistols.

The 1911 is the standard by which all pistols are made. Even a classic GI-issued 1911 can still get the job done.

Yeah but even a cheap ass G17 can hold more rounds, is arguably more accurate, lighter to carry, easier to shoot, more reliable right out of the box... sure its "only" a 9mm, but a well placed shot kills just the same.

A Glock is a fine gun. If I wanted one, I'd get either a .40 or .45. But again, this is a post that honors the 1911. Even I do not own a 1911 but still give it respect where respect is due. If you think the 1911 is no longer relevent, then why are they coming up with many different models of the 1911 as well as other models with 1911 features? I own a full-size H&K USP .40. And even it is heavily influenced by the 1911.

Maybe, but a .40,.45, or bigger caliber has a better chance against a coked up criminal on PCP, meth, or some narcotic. If you remember the FBI shootout in Miami, it shows why a 9mm is not enough to get the job done and even those criminals in that incident weren't even on drugs and still kept fighting after getting shot several times with 9mm ammo.

Let's not even get into a gun debate and worry more about putting the leftist antigunners in their place. And, glad you are happy with your Glock. It'll be with you for many years to come and it will remain reliable even under the worst conditions.

I like my Glocks. I'm also happy with my 1911's, I just don't think they are the end-all to firearm technology. ;)

I was considering Glocks but because of the then Assault Wpns. Ban of 1994, I was apprehensive of getting a very high capacity handgun. So I chose the full size H&K USP .40 (still own it even to this day and I used 13-rd. magazines since the ban got lifted), which only got affected by 3 rds. Another thing was that there were not too many USP owners at that time and it was also less expensive than the Glock then. Other than that, both are very reliable guns.
As for calibers, I can shoot the .40 and .45 just as well as the 9mm. I just preferred the .40 and .45 as I want a little more edge.

Right now there is a Remington 1911 R1 available at http://www.outlawbidder.com . This is a great penny auction website that will allow you to name your own price for the weapons you choose.
