Default Browning 1911-380 vs Glock 23

Buying my first semi auto pistol here in a couple weeks. I have always like Browning Firearms, almost everything in the safe is Browning. Their 1911 380 gets awesome reviews. But what about Glock? I like the Glock 23 Gen 4. I hate to jump on the Glock Bandwagon just because they are so popular. Anyone have any experience with either?

I have a LLAMA .380 1911 clone and I like it, I know it is not in the same class as the browning, but when you talk .380 most of the time it is for deep conceal self defense, that being said I do not want to carry locked and cocked and have to deal with a safety in a gun fight like you would have to do with a 1911 style weapon, so if you are giving me THOSE TWO choices I would have to side with the Glock.

All my Glocks are Gen3, but I love them. What's the point of a 1911 in .380? If I'm going to carry a 1911, it's going to be .45.

I'm not a Glock Homer but there isn't a more reliable pistol out there. Also getting a .380 basically in a full size 1911 defeats the purpose of getting a .380.

This thread makes me want to buy a .460 Rowland conversion.

I thought I was the only person on the planet who still had a Llama .380. It's old as dirt!

Are pretty guns more reliable? Does it make them better shooters?

I've carried several semi autos in my time, my current carry is a glock 23, and I love it, it does what I need when I need it.
