I hate Glocks. I've never liked them, and I've finnally figured out why. Glocks are the Honda Civic of Handguns. They are reliable, reasonably priced, and utterly Blah. I've always said that the Glock is a great handgun for non gun people., which is why they are so popular with police departments. Similarly, the Civic is a great car for non Car people.
I want the same thing in a firearm that I want in an automobile: control, performance, and ergonomics. I want a car with rear-wheel drive, manual clutch, and a floor shifter. Yes, it takes a bit more skill to use, but the end experience is far more satisfying than putting some front wheel drive import into "Drive", hitting the accerator and waiting for it to do something.
Similarly, I want a handgun with a single action trigger and manual thumb safety. That's why a 1911 will always be a better handgun than a Glock. It does what you tell it to, it points better, the trigger is MUCH better, and it does exactly what you tell it to.
A 1911 is like a Ford Mustang with a stick, if you actually like cars, it will always be better than a Civic.
