I liked Glocks for a while but the grip angle got to me.

quite possibly the best sidearm made for a general issue weapon.

+1 got one in 9 and it's sweet. Same grip angle like an 1911.

Looks like you do, so goodie for you.

New From Glock...Now With Extra KABOOM...
Link Posted: 8/19/2005 7:20:01 PM EDT
Everybody has there problems.
Link Posted: 8/19/2005 7:20:22 PM EDT
Glocks are adequate weapons. But only adequate.

They aren't any more reliable than any of my other good guns, but they are harder to shoot well.

I have a G26 on right now (the only Glock I have any real use for...The other Glocks I have owned I have gotten rid of....) so they do have their merits.

But as an overall choice, I don't see them as being all wondermous.

Still, if they DO fit you properly and you DO shoot them well, good on ya. Enjoy.

Just not my cup of tea.

Reliable, simple, constant trigger pull.

Link Posted: 8/19/2005 7:26:41 PM EDT
Glocks are great for untrained dummies who aren't really in to guns. That's why so many Police agencies use them. Including mine.

They are revolver simple to operate and they are reliable. That's what makes them good. No levers or external safeties to think about. Just point and click. Really though, what else do you need in a handgun?

So sad but so true....speaking as the ad-hoc commander of the FTU, SWAT team leader and acting Sgt. I have had officers during quals try to load .40 into 9mm mags, 9mm into .45 mags (how come my mag is all rattly?) and load mags backwards. God help us.

Glocks are great guns. I may take my Kimber back tomorrow and get a glock 19 and some boot back. My Kimber stainless ultra carry II is a POS. Least reliable pistol I have shot in my life. I haven't even tried hollow points in it yet. I am sure that would be a joke.

No bullshit question Steyr -

da/sa transition on a Sig classic series for an accurate shot, or a constant [possibly shitty] trigger pull on a glock?

Consistency wins everytime. Agree, it's not the best trigger but it's far from crappy. I've shot Kimbers, Sigs and though I like them both for punching tiny holes in paper, I'll take the Glock over both of these any day for a fighting pistol.


Glock abuse

Sorry, I don't like DAO.

Glocks are too damn ugly for my personal collection. I demand a minimum of esthetic beauty before I shell out $500+ for my guns.

I agree with Steyr. Glocks are teh ghey. FLAME AWAY

If a pistol doesn't come with:

SIGHTS THAT DONT SUCK

A SAFTEY

A FRICKIN HAMMER

They are ghey.

My glock's accuracy suffers because it's so ugly

Last I knew it wasn't how pretty a gun looks...it's how it functions.

A handgun was designed to kill. It doesn't need to be pretty, just needs to work...my Glock works pretty damn good...ugly or not.

Let's see:

1)Glocks suck/rule
2).223 round is too light/just right
3) .45 vs 9mm vs .40
4) FAL vs M1A
5) etc

No bullshit. Sig everytime.

I don't seem to have the problems with the initial DA trigger accuracy that so many Glock owners seem to have.

90% of my training time is DA to SA double taps from a draw then decocked and repeat.

Agreed. And my SIG, even on a DA to SA transition, is more accurate than my Glock EVERYTIME.

My S.O. issues the model 22 and has approved the 21 recently. I dont care for the 40 cal so I purchased my own model 21. Best pistol I ever owned. Never a problem in over 3 years as my primary carry weapon. I have a model 36 as backup (also carry it off duty) and a Springfield compact XD in 9mm (second backup).

I like the looks of Glocks, and their simple function and reliability, but I don't like the trigger pull and the way they don't feel right in my hands.

I can see the merits of the Glock's consistant trigger pull, but I'm used to a DA/SA pull, so going from DA to SA is no big deal to me.

Bah, you're going to break down and get a DAK one of these days...

I still like my sigs, but it's nice to have something lighter and a bit smaller.

And for whoever is pricing them at $500++....I paid $366 for my G19. Look around.

Glock is like the toyota of pistols. Not pretty, not flashy, but they work well.
