Personally, as a longtime 1911 owner & shooter I never cared much one way or another what weapon someone decided to carry.

As an instructor, I never cared what weapon someone decided to carry on or off-duty as long as they could manipulate it and shoot it well in the assorted training & qual scenarios we devised that introduced controlled stress on the shooter's skills and judgement, and the weapon's ability to run reliably when pushed hard.

If one or another particular shooter consistently did better, and was more comfortable and confident with a particular weapon selection, that's what I helped them learn to run well.

Now, when certain little groups or cliques like to gather around the gab sessions that inevitably occur somewhere off the firing line, or at a gun store counter, it's about as interesting to me as when dogs gather to sniff each other's butts. I tend to avoid those things.
