Why I Love the 1911, Yet I Married the Glock

The 1911 is arguably the sexiest gun to ever grace mankind. It feels perfect in the hand, recoil is an afterthought while firing. The 1911 manual of arms is akin to ballet. Graceful yet deliberate. When you hold a 1911 you feel as if you’ve just stolen Zeus’s Lightning Bolt. The sheer weighted balance of the 1911, reassures its master that when called upon, it can surely beat a man to death! The 1911 was forged from steel and wood, dug from the earth and formed by John Browning.


With all of this lust, I married the Glock. The Glock is not sexy. The Glock is not graceful. If you’ve seen one Glock, you’ve seen them all. So why the Glock over the 1911?


Because, even though I look dapper in a tuxedo. I don’t wanna wear a tuxedo everyday, especially in the summertime. I cannot stand dress shoes, sneakers are much better. Ladies, you may love the way you look in a pair of sexy heels, but it’s gotta get old quick.

That’s how I feel about the 1911 and the Glock. The Glock just works. The 1911 is a real man’s gun and the Glock is a hardworking, reliable and incredibly dependable sweater vest with cankles.

The Glock is not sexy, yet I never have to clean it. When close friends come to visit, I show off my beautiful 1911. I easily push my Glock out of the way and with two hands gently pick up my 1911. I even wipe down the 1911 before I put it back in my safe. I can’t remember the last time I even blew the dust off of my Glock.

Both guns are great, yet the 1911 is not for everyday. The 1911 is America and the Glock is an early 2000 Toyota Camry. It’s got over 200k on the speedometer, yet it cranks every time. Sure, the Glock is tactical Tupperware, but I never have to worry about dropping it or marring the finish. Heck, you could even clean it in your dishwasher!

              I really hope you are right Sandi. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t put it past them if the opportunity was made available.

      I bet they do!!! “No matter how good she looks, somebody is tired of her shit”! Same with heels probably.

  1. Tactical Tupperware. LOL! That’s good. A sweater vest with cankles. That’s also good. LOL!

    The 1911 is not that delicate. It is big, tho. I usually carry something smaller for my CCP.

    I still hate Glocks, even if they are the Camry of the weapon world.

  2. Flashbacks…. thank you! 😬😁🙋‍♀️ I have used a Glock and a Beretta, in addition to the M-16 of course, and felt adventurous and cool each time. Always on a range so that explains my simple feelings of fun. 😁

      A Glock 42 Rakkelle. If you were closer, it would be awesome if you and your husband could accompany my wife and I to the range one day.

              1. My boyfriend before my husband was an ex-Marine, who was fasinated with guns. He loved them perhaps as much as you do….We would go to the shooting range all the time. So I have fired guns several times before. I still remember the very first time I did. The pull back (or whatever you call it) was so forceful it scared the ish outta me. I was not expecting that force. I got used to it though since we went to the shooting range several times during our time together….I still hate guns though.

                  Yeah, thats always a risk when taking a new shooter out. The recoil can be punishing and very frightening. I didn’t know that they had gun ranges in NYC.

                    1. I just Googled and realize that there are a few in NYC….Had no idea. Not sure if my Ex knew that but we always went to the same ones in Jersey.

          Honestly, whichever one is better is totally dependent on the user. Anyone who tells you different is giving you bad advice
