    Besides your Glock, do you have another favorite weapon to shoot. Be it an AR or AK, is there something you just love to get your hands on and squeeze off a few rounds at the range or in training?

    What' makes the 1911 so special to people? I see lots of people who talk about that gun, but I'm not sure what makes it so special. Is there one reason or another that you love the 1911 so much?

    The 1911 is a very smooth shooting and accurate gun. It's a joy to shoot. It will make anyone look good. :)
     
  8. When it comes to the 1911 as a whole I don't like them for several reasons{mainly how the die hards act} but the trigger.........that's where the magic is. Simply the best feeling trigger ever conceived. Because of the trigger a lot of people can be VERY accurate with one with very little range time when they suck with most everything else.

    That's why you'll see people join Glock forums that claim they have been shooting 1911's for years and bought their first Glock and now can't hit squat with it then want to blame the gun{glock}.

    The gun is smooth, it's accurate, it's the race car of handguns, it's been a proven weapon in the military and law enforcement for over 100 years... And it's American! But I still love my Glock.

    Just got back from the range with my new Smith and Wesson 22A. The first mags were shooting high and left but consistently. It took me about 50 or 60 rounds to get the sights dialed in. After that I was able to get some pretty good shooting in.

    Also shot another 50 rounds through the G19.

    The ones in the middle were the last few rounds out of about 200. Finally got it sighted in.

    It's a 1911. It has been around for 100 years and has served our men and women through some hard times. The 1911 was the first handgun I shot years ago and was very accurate with no experience. The feel and power is amazing and that is why I like the 1911.

    I'm sure everyone has a favorite. Mine's my AK, and I just got a Slide Fire stock for it. ;)
     
  13. My favorite to shoot is my very first gun, a Desert Eagle Mark XIX .50ae. Nothing like letting a few fire balls loose :D.
