I own HK & SIGS. Excellent weapons. Should I purchase a Glock. They seem like a great value.
Condsidering a G20. Yes or No. Looking forward to your responses
BTW, I never shot one. How's that trigger?

My first exposure was to a glock 19 (medium sized 9mm)
I'm not the greatest shot, but I put 10 rounds in a silver-dollar sized hole at 25 feet the first time i fired. I bought one, put about 5K rounds through it, and never had a malfunction. I loved that gun, and will get another soon (lost it in a divorce...yes, she actually wanted my G19 to spite me).

I currently have a glock 21 (full size .45). I can consistantly hit a 1 ft. round steel hanging target at 100 yards standing. Amazing firearms.

I can't shoot that well with any other pistol...so i'm probably biased.

What? never shot a glock what the hell they are all over like weeds and sunshine do you know some people who shoot in your area I have to believe someone you know has a glock. the trigger is fine diffent than a sig, hk, or a 1911 but good I like it short fairly light and pretty much the same from gun to gun - the modified ones shit go buy a used glock 17 right now and if you like it buy a 20 and you had better get a 23 or a 19 and maybe a 33.34.35.30.36.21.22............hurry do it NOW!

IMO, its worth owning one.

I recommend putting a couple boxes through a friend's before buying one.

Check your hometown forums, somebody will let you play with theirs.

I own five Glocks 17,19,22,23,30. I have been pleased with every one of them. They are simple to use, accurate and a breeze to clean. Others have strong opinions but I have no regrets.

Regards,
Gary

Some good info at Glock Talk.

Have a 19 and 23, love them. Tons of Glock haters here, this thread will probably be 5 pages by the end of the day. Apparently, if you fire handloads with lead bullets through them without cleaning, eventually they'll blow up.

I've shot 4 G20s and will eventually get one. I have a G19, 21, 26, 30 and 34. The 10mm is a really nice round some people say is dying. I think it'll be around for a while. And if you want to carry for self defense Winchester still makes it in a full power 175gr SilverTip.

Go to a gun range, rent one and find out for yourself.


I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

And they are made of plastic so they can go through metal detectors without setting them off...no wait that was just the glock 7....or was it....

The nice thing about a Glock, is that you can really "prep the trigger".

Go for it. Everyone should try one, at least once.
