Actually a glock even though a fine weapon is a poor choice for a carry weapon. There have been more cops shot with their own glocks than with any other weapon!
The safety system on a 1911 has saved more lives because of it’s complexity than all the glocks ever produced could dream of.
I own both guns but carry a 1911!
Police departments jumped on the glock because they didn’t have to teach weapon use just shot placement and according to FBI stats police shot placement is only 50 percent of the time.
In classes I have put on when I allowed somebody to take an unloaded glock from me they were able to pull the trigger my 1911 they were not able to make the gun fire before I had it back in my hands or were able to display a backup weapon!
Safety was a priority during those drills but now what firearm do you want to carry?

And let’s face it, if the Phantom wore two 1911’s, they must be the best.
