Glock first bought R Lee Ermey and now Larry Vickers, I'm OK with it because I believe in capitalism
I'm smart enough to judge my firearms on their own merit without being swayed by paid cheer leaders
The 1911 may not be for everyone but it's for this someone.
Vicker's claiming it takes $1000.00 plus more money in gunsmithing to have a reliable 1911 is pure BS ! A blatant scare tactic to steer you into plastic, nothing wrong with Glock just be fair. A Springfield Loaded goes for about $750.00, has everything you'd need for a nice carry gun and a lifetime warranty (transferable to used buyers as well). Should you have an issue with a Springfield they ship both ways and fix it free or replace.... How would this equate to thousands of dollars?
A Glock goes for $575.00 Springfield Loaded $750.00, shoot both and tell me the more accurate, better feeling grip, better trigger and looks aren't worth the extra cash.
I ask you this Mr. Vicker's and Lee Eremy, Why is it even today that most full sized semi auto's are compared to the 1911?
