I've owned several 1911s. My favorite was the Para Ordance P14-Limited; a tricked-out high-capacity 1911.
My much cheaper Glock 21 out shoot it, was far more comfortable in the hand, and had less recoil with +P rounds than the P14 had with standard, and pointed more naturally (for me) than any other gun.
Both were drop-dead reliable.
But the G21 is a Glock; basically, indestructible.
At first, I hated Glocks. But after owning them, and quite a few other guns, I've vowed never to stray again
Now, I'd have to say my two favorite hand guns are the G21 & G35. I like the 35 alot, but prefer the grip size of the G21. Alot of people think it's way too big (so did I at first), but after you get used it...it's like going to a dual core from a Celeron. You just don't want to go back
