- I have always enjoyed R. Lee Ermey, but he has outdone himself in these Glock-sponsored vidclips.
I think I read somewhere that over half of all LEO's were Glock shooters.
- Glocks ARE ARE light, tough, reliable, and easy to use...but they are also 9mm. Ugh. Unless you have access to air-drilled or special ammo, or actually enjoy pumping multiple rounds into a bad guy, why use 9mm?
I may be a dinosaur, but I'm not a fossil yet. I have always preferred the "one-and-done" goodness of the reliable, simpler, and tougher 1911 .45ACP.
- Still do.
Nothing but nothing transfers more ballistic energy upon impact than the .45ACP.
I was 'made' to carry a 9mm SigSauer at one time. Didn't care for it much, but it was a better weapon than the Glock. I also briefly 'flirted' with the HK .45ACP version used by today's SEALs. It's OK, and it does NOT have the 'funny' trigger the Glock has. But, it's no 1911.
- So that said, the 1911 .45ACP (short OR long slide) is still my "go to" of choice. John Moses Browning was a genius.................
At the end of it, when push goes beyond shove, you either 'have' something at hand or you do not.
- If you do not, that is what the police, body bags, and crime scene cleanup are for. They will be there for you.
