I know the title may seem stupid since this is a 1911 forum, but I am beating my head against the wall with this problem and need help. I recently got back into guns and got my CCW. I first chose the S&W Sigma .40 but immediately got rid of it because the trigger was a piece of crap. I tried a Glock 17 and loved it so I bought a 19 (9mm). It was a good size and the recoil was next to nil. At the time, I only wanted to spend $500 for a carry pistol. Since then, I have bought an AK-47, Glock 34, an SA 1911 WWII and have a Taurus RB .44 on the way. I spent $610 (including tax) on the SS SA (at the time I thought it was a good deal). The sight/trigger job I am having done on it will cost $183, so after tax and all the SA will cost me $793. The more I read the more I begin to worry that 9mm, even HP, will not be effective in a confrontation. At first I didn't want to carry a 1911 because of the size, cost and having the disengage the safety (I like the Glock's lack of an external safety). My question is this: should I sell the Glock (for about $450?) and the SA 1911 (for about $600? and LOSE MY BUTT!) and buy a Para Ordinance LDA DAO 1911? Please give me your honest opinions. I do like Glock, so it's not a matter of 1911 vs. Glock. It's more about calibur and I don't want a Glock .45 due to the recoil. Thanks!
