    That was a good article. Personally, I enjoy shooting a .45, it is just fun. For carry--all 9mm. I started out carrying .40 but after getting my first 9mm I was able to better control follow up shots in a faster manner. 9mm Magazine capacity is better to boot.

    A little off topic...

    What I love is that when I'm dating a lady and she's a shooter, nine times out of ten she's got a .380.

    When I let her shoot my Glock 17, and she finds out it's easier to shoot than her pocket .380, and the ammo is cheaper and more powerful, I'm always amused at how fast that .380 ends up for sale so she can purchase a 9mm Glock.

    One thing I'd have to say though: when I shot IDPA with a .45 caliber 1911 I always scored better than with a 9mm Glock. The reason: trigger. It's hard to beat the 1911 single action trigger, but that's the only thing that I prefer on a 1911 versus a Glock.

    LAV told me that simply because Glocks are universal, he uses Glocks in most of his handgun classes (obviously not 1911 classes). He believes Glocks are good, reliable handguns that do require a bit of getting used to overcome their natural inclination to put rounds lower left. He believes it is a consequence of the striker trigger on the Glock and most people's natural hand shape, position and trigger press. He always recommends replacing the sights, even jokingly says that the sights that come on Glocks are simply plastic place holders for the customer to remove when they put new sights on it.

    Bottom line: LAV is NOT some kind of brand groupie...he fully appreciates the Glock and is smart enough to know that when 85% of every handgun class he teaches shows up with Glocks...Glock it is.

    Bottom line: it's the Indian, not the arrow.
