That was my experience too. I liked any gun I could get my hands on (still do) but the first time I shot a 1911 I KNEW I had to have one! It just felt like it was custom molded for my hand and pointed like an extension of my arm. Add to that the phenomenal trigger and soft shooting .45acp in a full-size frame and there was no question what my gun of choice was gonna be.
My first GLOCK, however, was not the same experience. I don’t hate them at all, but there was WAY too much I didn’t like, as delivered, to put it on the ‘have to get one’ list.
