Glock's patent expiring??? Clones??? They ALREADY exsit... there may be internal differences, but after Glocks tremendous initial popularity, look what arrived on the market. Springfield XD, S&W MP, Sig, H&K, Ruger, Taurus and various others all came out with weapons offering a similar design, feel and appearance... AFTER Glocks arrival and widespread appeal with shooters, LEO's and its glorification in the entertainment industry. Just look and you can see the obvious influence Glock already has had on the marketplace. High Capacity Tactical plastic... regardless of personal love or disdain for polymer frame weapons, they function and sell in volume.

The future is now old man, polymer wonder 9’s shall inherit the earth!!!

Now on a serious note, lots of people still carry 1911’s, from officer models to the full size 5 inch government models. I find them to have low recoil, great triggers, and tons of customization options available. Now personally, they’re a bit on the heavy side for all day carry, but they do conceal very well due to the flatness. Would I feel under-gunned carrying one? Absolutely not. A lot of the single stack 9mm’s out right now have the same capacity as the 1911(and an extra magazine makes it a moot point).
