Is A Glock Twosome My Answer?
I've owned quite a few handguns over the years both revolvers and semi-autos. Enough in fact that I couldn't count them all. I recently responded to a post on another site in which the poster asked,"if I needed a handgun in an emergency situation and could run into a gun shop and pick one brand new handgun that I absolutely trusted, which would it be?" I didn't have to think twice in stating that it would have to be a Glock. I've owned several Glocks over the years including a 17, 23, 27, 30 and my current 36. I've never experienced a failure of any kind with any of them. Well that really got me thinking over my current handgun situation. My regular concealed carry piece is a Glock 36. I don't hunt with a handgun, but do usually carry a handgun when hunting. I also have a customized Sistema 1911A1, a Taurus model 605 in .357 and a model 450 in .45 Colt along with a tiny Kel-Tec .32 as a backup gun. I'm really considering selling off the Sistema and both Taurus guns and just buying a Glock 21 so that I would still have a full sized auto. I know owning guns isn't always about need and want has to take a place, but I feel that I would be better served with just the two Glocks that I absolutely trust.
Any thoughts on the matter?

Shoot a G21 before you sell the Sistema, preferably both a standard and a SF.

Variety is the spice of life and there will always be a debate over what is best. Especially when it comes to plastic guns vs. a 1911 platform. Truth is that you can get super reliablity out of most of the major types and makers of hand guns. It is really about what you can shoot best and what you have the most experience with. And whether or not you want to maintain a single platform and a single caliber. The Sistema either is or can be a decent 1911 platform. And no matter how much you modify or don't modify a Glock there is no way to get a 1911 like trigger out of them. I know people that can shoot a Glock really well. I can't. The grip angle is too steep and it hurts my wrist (arthritis). I much prefer the more 90 degree like grip angle of the 1911. Now if someone is looking for a service class pistol other than Glock or wants a steel gun then there are two at the top of my list. The S&W M&P is awesome. I feel it is one of the best plastic service class guns out there. There are many plastic striker fired guns. And they are NOT a DA gun. They are technically a single action. The striker gets cocked everytime the slide cycles. And I can get very good triggers out of Glocks, XDs, M&Ps and so on. If someone wants a steel or alloy gun I recommend the CZ. If you follow IDPA two of the fastest gaining use platforms are the CZ and M&P. That is besides the Glock and 1911 platforms. There are many people competing with the CZ SP-01. My personal choice is the M&P in .40.
