Opinions are one of two things we all have and I am no exception. My opinion, single action autos were great in their day but the double action or double action only auto is a much better, more modern weapon. Just as the Luger was a good weapon in its day but no where as good as a modern HK or Sig etc. I feel the same about the 1911. Again I know a lot of others will disagree with me on this so as the saying goes "what ever floats your boat".
