I can't recollect if I've ever seen this on here before. None other than The Reaper himself weighing in on the age old debate. FWIW, I pretty much agree with him. They're both battle tested, both excellent weapon systems. Other than a S&W 38, or 357, wheelgun, I can't think of another handgun that has silenced more bad guys the world over than a G19 or a 1911. I own one of each & would trust my life & the lives of my family with either...
