Thanks guys. And for what it's worth Matt, Re: 2, screw you, my Mom thinks I'm hilarious.
Regarding the trigger... Of course it's more fair to say that it feels totally different than the 1911, because the striker and the hammer behave so differently. I'm going to stand by my assessment of the reset: Far superior to my Kimber, period.
BUT. As far as the pure pull (press, squeeze, whatever), the Kimber is still the nicer trigger.
The Glock isn't some tricked out, tuned up Cadillac of what used to be a fighting gun. It's not refined, and would look silly in a fancy leather holster worn with a suit. A 1911 doesn't always look out of place in that same situation. I love my 1911 and big honkin' Golden Sabers- that's what I carried today at church. The Glock is all about function, and that's it.
Even though so many 1911's are now "pretty" or BBQ guns, it's still a damn serious platform. It's survived the test of time for a reason.
My 1911 trigger moves about an 1/8th of an inch, and then breaks clean. My Glock goes through 3 felt stages before breaking. I suspect they're the internal safeties. But the break
on the Glock is not as bad as people say. It's just that you feel you're way there. Once there, due to exceptional reset, on a MCOTH type of day I doubt you'd have many complaints.
They're such different animals, I don't know that I'll ever want to be involved in one of those "vs." arguments, because they almost always wind up in a pissing match. "No, your
gun sucks because of X, Y,
Emotionally, I'll stick with the 1911. It's got a stranglehold on me like Ike on Tina Turner. But the Glock is designed to take a lickin' and keep on tickin'- and I have a lot of respect for a design with pure function in mind.
