The age old debate of which pistol is better, the Glock or the 1911 has been broken down into key features that may settle such argument. These key features are reliability, Knockdown Power, and Hand Angle and Sight Picture with a few myths of both guns thrown into the mix to give consumers positives and negatives of both.
- Let me first start off by saying this, “the .45 cal has no more “knockdown power” than a 9mm”.
- If you are looking for a weapon with history, fun to shoot, a good starter pistol, and basic home/self-defense, the 1911 is a great choice.
- As for self-defense, I would have to go with the Glock. The variety that they can come in and the fact that they hold more than 7 rounds in the magazine is a plus for me.
