I've shot s few different models and they are good shooters but I just can't bring myself to buy one.
I've thought about a G43 for a carry gun. I currently CCW a Beretta 92A1 IWB.
What makes y'all love them so much and why does everyone recommend them 99.87% of the time?

Simple, cheap, and effective. I carry a G43 everyday.

They are reliable and have proven themselves time and time again.  
Also relatively cheap.
Now that the SEALS, Delta, and MARSOC are carrying them even more will want them.
Link Posted: 2/23/2016 7:48:01 PM EDT
Reliable.
Expandable.
Affordable.


Whats not to like?  450 in a pistol that works as is or can be racegunned, stippled, cut down, aftermarket support as good as an AR.

Cheap seems to be a huge part of it. Probably to match all the PSA rifles they build.

Simple, cheap, reliable and the most supported aftermarket and LE trade in market of any firearm on the market.

Oh, and Blue Label.

-cheap
-myth of reliability, even people with obviously defective guns blame it on user error
-cheap
-light
-in the right hands can be accurate above their price point
-aftermarket support
-cheap

Same reason PD's went to them.. Simple, affordable, and Grunt Proof
Link Posted: 2/23/2016 7:49:45 PM EDT
like the above dudes already stated: simple, cheap, reliable.

Unfortunately a lot of the knuckle heads on the internet feel that their pistol of choice should be the only option for folks and always have to bleat shit out of their face hole in every fucking thread not related to glocks.

I just picked up a 43 friday, I fucking love it.
Link Posted: 2/23/2016 7:49:55 PM EDT
The simplicity is what got me to really like them.

Compared to the M&P and especially HKs, a lot less parts.

I own quite a few glocks and have never built anything using parts from PSA.


Edit- I also own numerous 1911's, Sigs, CZ's' and revolvers.

The G19 was my regular carry for a long time. I have other guns I like better, but the G19 is durable, low-maintenance, light, I don't worry about the finish, it does the job, and I wouldn't be upset if I used it in a defensive encounter and had to surrender it to the cops for an extended period. (Electro-penciled case numbers could only improve the character of the gun.)

Link Posted: 2/23/2016 7:51:44 PM EDT
I have 10 glocks so far. I buy them because they work. If you want to try different or unproven pistols go ahead. Most semi auto malfunctions and drills are due to non glocks. Glock is proven and reliable like a Toyota Camry or Honda Accord. They just work.

I own HK's, Sigs, Ed Brown 1911's, and other high priced handguns. I'll grab and carry my Glock over any of them Everytime. I don't own any PSA garbage either. Additionally,I don't think SOCOM would be using Glocks simply because they are "Cheap"
Link Posted: 2/23/2016 7:52:03 PM EDT
Simple to use.
Light weight.
Capacity.
They work.

They have exactly the features I want. No safety and a short reset trigger.  No gimmicks on the gun. It also doesn't rust.

good,  more folks that buy Glocks means more big black Italians for you...

I don't get it. My Cz P01 fits better in the hand, is within four ounces when loaded, plenty of carry options, and is a design that's proved itself for decades. To each their own though. More options the better, it's whatever you shoot better.

10 glocks.
Glock in your name.

I think you might like glocks more than your average glock lover.

Have you named them?
Link Posted: 2/23/2016 7:54:15 PM EDT
I have tried to like them. They are ugly as sin and are  as ergonomic as a 2 x 4. Beretta 92's and CZ75's for the win. If it does not have a hammer it's not right. I tried to like striker fired Guns and everyone I tried just was not as good

Just traded my Glock for an M&P last night.

Felt better in my hand, swapped with a family member who liked the Glock better. Everyone happy. I need some Apex parts now

Guns don't rust if you maintain them properly....

they are boringly reliable....just what I want in a self defense tool.    It's not a status symbol or something to show off....it's a tool that has a critical job to do when called upon.

For decades?
I thought it was 14 or 15 years old.
