Agreed but if you can only afford a chevy it will get you home. Unrelated but I have put 100k miles on my chevy impala in 19 months.True. But the HP is in a different class; that of quality, pride of ownership, and history. A Chevy will get you where you want to go, but ( if you want to spend the dough) a Cadillac will get you there in style. And isn't that true of handguns in general ?
Our chains are being yanked, friends I do like other semis, but if it ain't all steel...keep it. Still, nothing is more fun for me than a well tuned 1911, except a well-tuned wheel gun.Hey thats scacreligious thing to say.......John Browning created both the Browning HP & 1911!!!
Nothing like having 17+1 rounds of .45 ACP in one mag (+4 base plates) and a gun that is more controllable and faster to shoot (Glock 21).
The 1911 was obsolete in 1946. The high power became obsolete in the 1970's.
Hands are different. Glock grip size and angle fit me perfectly. I have large palms and short fingers. The grip angle transfers the recoil into my shoulders and not my hands. That is why I can shoot faster than with a 1911. 1911's flop around in my hands.If...if I bought a modern .45, which I doubt, it would be an M&P 2.0 or a PPQ. I shot both better than the Glock 30. Nothing wrong with it but I dislike the Glocks’ grip angle. The S&W has a perfect fit and the Walther a perfect trigger.
I prefer that to round count. If I need that many rounds, I will grab the AR.
