      I'd say yes times 1K, to perfect for words, real close to the punch of the .45
      all the cap of the 9mm get the night sights. I think it's the ughliest thing ever
      made but it shoots white box like it's match target. did I say I think it's might
      be a good choice?

        I think the Glock is overrated. I have a 23 and it is fine, but not spectacular. I much prefer my XD and a good ole 1911 is an even bettwe option. You can get a Springfield 1911 in Full Size for the price of a Glock 23.

          I do not like the fact that 1911s have such small round capacity and way to heavy to carry. Cant say anything about xds dont know crap about them.

            The Glock 23 is a little over 23oz unloaded and my Kimber 1911 is 32oz unloaded. You can do 8+1, 9+1 and even 10+1 on a 1911 magazine. The Glock 23 magazine that would work for a carry situation is either 10 or 13, the 15 is to long for carry. So, my 1911 is less than 9oz heavier and has 2 to 4 fewer rounds, but is more accurate with MUCH better stopping power. Plus, the 1911 has a much better supply of spare and replacement parts. There are dozens if not hundreds of 1911 models on the market and most of the parts on them are interchangeable. Not so with the Glock. So, for a before TSHTF carry gun, the 1911 is far superior. For a after TSHTF survival gun, it will be easier to maintain, repair and get ammuntion. Your choice, but I would not discount it without consideration.

              I've been a 1911 fan and builder of 1911s for a mere 43 years (including some years in the US Army) so I may not be concidered an informed party to this debate but having seen what I have seen and learned what I have learned through personal experience I would be happy with a Glock, in fact a Glock 17 is my carry gun and has been for almost 20 years simply because it will go Bang every time. I'll leave the target shooting to target shooters. If I am slapping leather it means I have only a few seconds to live, I don't need a target pistol or a mis-fire.

                I like your logic sir, Having had a gold cup in my early years I also found
                the go bang reliability and simplicity of the glock worth betting my life on.
                I had a cc course a number of years ago and one of the leo instructors
                had a 19 with over 100K thru it without a malfunction. I assume he was
                telling the truth.
