One Piece vs Two Piece Guide Rod

What are the pros and cons of one and two piece guide rods. Any difference in a full size model (gov't) or commander size?

One piece for self defense carry (if you CHOOSE to have a FLGR in your carry gun). You don't want it coming unscrewed when it counts (even though it is a rare event).

Two piece with comp guns or reverse plug guns (game guns) that don't let the FLGR out of the slide in the normal manner. As a general rule, two piece only when necessary.

If your response doesn't pertain to the difference BETWEEN 1 PIECE AND 2 PIECE FLGRs, as in "aint no use for a FLGR", then please save for THAT discussion.
