I was thinking the same. Next comes reliability. Not proven with 100 rounds IMO. But, it’s a gun.

I believe you both missed my point. I'm not a Glock fan boy. I actually don't like ANY polymer frame guns. But at least some polymer guns have "appeal". Glock is a block! I own one. Just one. I actually prefer 1911, any single action revolver wether it's my colts or a SAA clone. The s&w Schofield I wasn't keen on but I respect the style. Lever guns over semi auto. Navy colts, so Glock is not something I thrive on. I bought it for a beater truck gun. Yes a brand new in box Glock for a truck gun. But the few (~100) rounds I fed it...it ate them. So it does it's job. But it's not a gun that gets a second glance in a gun counter.

Glock's problem is that they flat out refuse to fix the things people complain the most about their pistols. How hard is it to re-contour the grip frame to where it's actually comfortable to hold? And how about putting on some decent sights, for crying out loud? And one more thing, how about finally offering a manual safety option for those who actually want it? I agree that under the hood the pistol needs nothing, as the basic platform is proven and easy to maintain. The changes I mentioned would be easy to do and still allow parts interchangeability with existing pistols. Unfortunately all we see from Glock are guns that are longer, shorter, thicker, thinner, and in different calibers, but the same ugly, brick-shaped pistol with crappy out-of-the-box sights remains.

First off. If Glock made a 1911 then they would have to admit that the now five generations of Glock are still not "Perfection." We know that of course. They are some good, reliable Combat Tupperware. I actually have a few. I even rather like my G21 a good bit, and my G30s enough too, since the 30s is one of my three carry guns. As long as they have the Grip Force Adapter on them so they actually point more like a 1911 than a Glock. As I said, not perfection.

Second. Well, that pretty much covers it I suppose. To make a 1911, even in a polymer frame, Glock would have to admit that the 1911 grip angle is a more natural pointing firearm and does not require breaking the wrist/forearm alignment to get the sights online. In other words. To make a 1911 with all the things we love about the 1911, they would be making the statement that the standard Glock is NOT perfect.

Gaston would never do that. Or admit it.

Once you get used to a Glock's grip angle there's nothing wrong with it in that respect. However since it's different from nearly every other handgun design out there it means you either train and get good with just Glocks or you train with everything else. Switching back and forth means you have to reset your muscle memory. Some don't have a problem doing it, but a lot of us do.

5. The Beretta 92 is a total piece of junk. Just ask my cousin's best friend who served with the Army SEALS.
That is your only true statement

Yes another forum member has told me great things on the 8. My old shovel was not a power house but man it was freedom. Lol. Yeah I've had more than once been somewhere on my bike and pull up to a store or eating joint and get the old lady clutch her purse tight, or the guy get between me and his kids and wife. Or had store associate watch me like a hawk. And I'm not tatted up and usually clean cut. Lol. But that bike or leather vest/jacket gives off a red flag for people that think bikers are crazed lunatics. And it's even worse if I'm open carrying while riding my bike oh the looks I get. Lol. I had one lady (obviously a regular church goer) ask me "why do you choose to ride that loud thing? Are you a hell's angel?". I said no ma'am I'm not flying any colors! Then had to explain that statement. Lol. Then she proceeds to tell me I need Jesus. And Jesus looks down upon me for being a biker. I said ma'am there's Christian motorcycle groups all over this country. I have friends and people in my church that are members. She just walked away shaking her head.

That is the true reality of many people’s mentalities. I had a small disagreement with someone about the perception of people that see those that choose to carry a firearm, ride a motorcycle or do anything outside the norm as “outlaws” and “they will go to hell”. Sure there are those melting pots of freaks that ride skateboards and have pink Mohawks, face piercings up the wazoo and pants sagging to their knees. A biker would be no big deal in that environment, but it’s not the norm. Carry a gun, which is usually prohibited in that circus and people piss themselves. I have no idea where I was going with that.......stupid people get my goat!!

The funny thing is, if you walk up to 99.9999999% of just about any type of biker (more so with Harley riders in my experience) no matter how they look, and say something like "hey nice bike" or where you going, something along those lines odds are they will sit or stand there talking with you for just about as long as you like. Probably will be more polite than most people you will meet on any particular day as well.

A Glock 1911 is like a Daewoo with a Chevy Bowtie emblem on the front!! But on the other hand, if Glock did make one, I can't resist the urge to try one out for myself. If one can get the solid reliability of a 1911, who cares who makes it.

Would I buy one - NOT!!

You are exactly right! While I don't fly any colors, the guys that do are generally approachable and friendly wether I'm on my road King or on my Kawasaki. As my kawi is somewhat unique being a drifter (50's era Indian clone) I've had plenty of sincere compliments from the "bleed orange and black" HD riders. Some wearing full mc rockers. After talking and they find out I have a HD too they say "I can see why you ride THIS jap bike, it's awesome". I've even offered some to ride it. 2 have accepted the offer. Most just throw a leg over the saddle and admire the great balance and smile. I have NEVER had another biker to truly talk negative about it. Of course some buddies give me innocent trash talk that buddies do! In return I talk trash about their HD. All in fun. But for those of us who do ride, deep down we're glad that two wheels aren't for everyone. Just like guns. For safety reasons we're glad EVERYONE doesn't own them. They both require common sense that isn't so common now days.

I could not have said that any better. But that common sense comment you made. What is this "common sense" thing you speak of? Please don't get me started on that. I have been in the middle of a "common sense" legal struggle since July that I don't have the strength to explain right now that should have never happened in the first place. Something that happened 39 years ago! Hope I live long enough to enjoy the benefits of it if someone can actually find the delete button on their keyboard.

If Glock made a 1911 the grip angle would be wrong.

True statement.......
The other hilarious thing is that most of the HD owners of today have more money wrapped up in their bike than the snowflakes have in their car. Tons are highly successful in life and these pathetic entitled twerps in the Starbucks line think they are losers. They have no clue as to what makes the country run and don’t care as long as ChicFilA, Whole Foods and Starbucks stay open.

I love Norinco 1911's. I've had 4 over the years. One of the best inexpensive base guns ever made actually.

I tried to like Glocks and even bought a brand new model 20 and brand new model 21 when they were first released back in the early 90's. Both guns were jammamatics when I tried to fire hollow point rounds. I took both back to the dealer for full refunds. I gave Glock another chance about 7 years ago and bought a brand new Model 17. It had issues with a light primer strike (1 out of every box of 50rds that I shot). I unloaded that one and have zero interest in ever buying or shooting another one.

I am however, extremely happy with my Dan Wesson and Night Hawk Custom 10mm 1911 pistols.

Thanks for coming out of the closet. You see them jam at the range occasionally too. The fanboys will never admit it though. There is a rumor that they always work, they do not. They are susceptible to the same variables as any firearm. Just because they look like a hammer doesn’t mean they are as reliable as some lead you to believe.
