TTAG commentator Blake W. Hiatt sent me this email:
I’m a 1911 guy, through and through. With that said, sometimes a little variety is good. I wandered down to my local range recently and decided I’d rent a Glock to shoot alongside my 1911. I thought it would be interesting to see how shooting a Glock compared to a 1911. I admit it was somewhat of an apples to oranges comparison, because the Glock was chambered for 9 mm . . .
The Glock fit my hand well, felt good and shot well. I was surprised at how well the Glock shot, considering this was a range rental and who knows when the gun was last cleaned.
I’ve long been reasonably certain my only knock against the Glock was purely aesthetic.
I put 43 rounds down the barrel and then shot for score. 7 rounds, 7 yards. I think the target says it all.
