    New to SGN from the Kent area.

    Hello all,

    I just moved back to the area and got referred here by a shooter I know. I carry a walther, favor the .40 over the 9mm and the .45 (its the best of both worlds), and favor the AR platform over the Ak, despite its indisputably superior reliability. I think that's most the hot button gun gripes. Well the major ones at least...

    Anyways I hope everyones having a happy holidays and safe shooting.

    Welcome to the wet side. Is your handle Orwellian?

    Mmmmm...1911vsGlock. If were talking pretty range gun, 1911, a daily carry, I'd have to go with Glock, its got the reliability (not saying 1911's aren't, just more maint. on them) and I wouldn't carry a gun with an active safety if given a choice otherwise. Not to mention weight, and capacity. But 1911's are just so pretty and nice shooting. Thats the only topic i really get muddled on I think.

    It is indeed doc. One of my favorite books. Here I thought I was being clever and my first post I get made.

    Ok first things first, welcome to SGN. .45acp hands down. 1911 trumps everything else. See how that works!

    Tread ye lightly, neophyte. Really, that handle slots you nicely in this culture.
