February poll...1911 or G21

Had a bit of fun with a pre-poll thread over on WTA on this same topic just to see what would happen.   The 1911 and the G21 (Glock in general) seem to be on the polar opposite ends of the steel vs. polymer, old vs. new or less filling vs. tastes great ongoing-and-never-ending controversy in the gun world.   I don't want people to over think this too much so I will lay out the following parameters:

  • This is a gun that you would carry (open or CCW) to defend yourself
  • The Glock is carried with 1 mag + 1 in the pipe, the 1911 is carried with 2 7 round mags (1 inserted with +1)
  • The 1911 is carried condition 1 (Cocked and locked)
  • The 1911 is a service/duty model but has 3 dot sights.

That should level the playing field for the 2 of them...just pick one and vote...comments are very welcome...as always.

Polls up the entire month of February.
