Well at least thats what I have noticed over the past few years. I am personally in the middle when it comes to Glocks. I like them , they shoot well , they have a reputation for being durable , and I own 4 of em (17 , 19 , 21 , 26). The only thing I can find wrong with them is that they are butt ugly. I just don't "love" them. Now a 1911 , there is true love , but we won't get into that.

Just curious how GD feels about Glocks in general? How many are like me and can live without Glocks , but do not despise them like some people do. Poll inbound.

Great accuracy, mooshy trigger, uncomfortable grip for me. No frills gun to just go bang.

It's definitely the Honda Accord of the gun world. I'd be happy for a $300 new one, but some people pay stupid money on them.

1911s- favorite gun to shoot at the range

Glocks- favorite gun to carry all day

I love both of my Glocks.

By far the best firearm you can get if you can only have one to protect yourself, and/or loved ones with. (In my opinion)

I have a love for a nice reliable 1911 too.

I used to dislike them. Now i realize it's the singer not the song, and i could use one if i had to.

Since options exist that I can use well and are at or near the same reliability, I just use them.

Have to fit it in its class of firearms as a double action only semi-automatic pistol it's the best right now.

The trigger is just the best in terms of stock pull and reset. I don't personally find them to be bad in terms of ergonomics. The aftermarket support for it is insane and second to none. Sure, there are things you can complain about, but the negatives to other pistols are more substantial to me.

Great trigger, low muzzle flip, and insane aftermarket support. Good stuff.

Had both, liked both. Had a G22 and as SA 1911 GI. Both too small for my hands. Got bit pretty good by the Glock, still have the scar from 2 yrs ago. I have to use my XDM and STI Edge for shooting now.

I like Glocks, I carry a G26. They're great guns. But I don't engage in the "this gun is awesome, that gun sucks" war that goes on between the fanboys of various platforms. I don't hate one gun because I love another. It's just another option and as far as I'm concerned, the more options we have to choose from, the better.

A functional pistol, that's all. Has the ergonomics of a brick, but they fit the average shooter.

Not much of a fan personally. Had a 17. I still have a 20SF to fill the 10mm niche.

Prior to 2000 I carried a wheelgun as a duty weapon, the only other option was the Glock 17/19

So I carry the Glock as a matter of necessity, I own the 19 and the 26

Love everything except the ergos of the grip frame, the trigger reset is awesome

I don't have any. I don't know that I don't like them I just don't like the feel of them in my hands. Feels like a block of wood to me. I know they shoot anything and just go and go. To each his own I guess. I certainly wouldn't buy one just because everyone else like them.

Have a G19 and G26 now.

Have owned upto 5 at one time in the past, including G17's and a G30.

I'm in the camp where I honestly don't think they're the safest choice for carry.

Perfer a hammer style gun, or at least a striker fired with a safety.

First Glock I shot turned me off to them for ten years. It was a gen 2 G23 and I think it was a combo of me being a noob and it being a .40, a caliber that I still dislike. Then I drank the SIG coolaid, until I got some training and started carrying at first for just CCW and then for work. Grabbed a G17 on a deal that I couldn't pass up. Haven't looked back since. All I carry are 9mm Glocks.

I think they are ugly as fuck, uncomfortable, and their triggers suck, but they are cheap & reasonably accurate & reliable with good mag capacity.

Guess I'm in the middle. Only reason I wanted one was the cheap threaded barrels for supressors though. It would be near my last choice to carry out of many handguns.
