    Glock or Beretta?

    Glock
    1.doesn't fit hand.
    2. doesn't feel comfortable to shoot.
    3. ugliest gun ever built.

    I'd just as soon be caught with a toothless crackwhore than be caught with a Glock.

    Well...

    Both are almost complete polar opposites, while a Glock is a Glock is a Glock for the most part, Beretta has quite a few different models so you may want to elaborate a little more as to which Beretta you are interested in, or just Beretta as a whole? You've covered (at least partially) why you dislike Glock, but it's still in the running? So what do you like about Beretta? The grip can be too oddly shaped pending on hand size if you're talking about a 92FS, I think the PX4 is about as butt ugly as a as the south end of a northbound Glock, DA/SA guns are a little harder to learn (not impossible mind you, just a little harder) and you could be talking either polymer or metal frame?

    SO...is this really a Glock or Beretta thread, or should I just rename it: Which Beretta?

    VA, actually, I was poking a little fun. I do like Glock and respect them immensely, if you didn't respect them, you wouldn't know firearms. I disagree about the looks of my PX4 compact, very ergonomic with nice lines. Now my subcompact I refer to as my little "beast", and I'm still not sure what to make of him in the looks department. My 1993 92G police special is a beautiful pistol, not only does it perform flawless, but it's classic and appealing to my eye. I agree about the DA/SA, it definately takes more time to get proficient with the first DA trigger pull, but a little practice and your fine. Of all three DA/SA'S I own, the compact has the shortest first DA of the three, however, I do have a nice trigger spring after trial and error in my 92 and it performs very nicely.

    I love glock pistols. They are simple, light and has a higher percentage of firing when you want it to. I love berettas as well but wont choose it over a glock. I have a police friend who almost lost his hand when attempt to foul a robbery at one of our banks. Sadly, when he attempted to fire his weapon, the safety was on and before he could make ready, the robber got the upper hand, chopping him all over. This one mistake almost cost him his life. Now, had it been a glock........case closed.

    I don't carry my Beretta's on safety, I have a 92G that just has a decocker, and my two F model Storms are never on safety when I carry them. I could convert them but why? To me it would like be carrying a revolver on safety. Now a 1911 cocked and locked I would definetely carry on safety. . Do a little Google and type in Glock/Accidental discharge. Likewise, I watched a police officer on U-tube with some bad ass Gerry Curl Dreads, Glock-Legged, in front of young children in their classroom. Plaxico Burress, another victim, Glock-Legged, which cost him his NFL career. FYI as mentioned with the G model, Beretta also has a D model and a C model with no safety's if you wish to go that route. Likewise, many police officers have their weapons taken from them, believe it or not it has happened, and that extra time may give an officer a second plan while the perp is trying to figure out how to fire the weapon. A Glock is a fantastic firearm, however, you need to be on your toes if you carry one in the chamber, if not, wear steel-toe boots as a precaution.

    I shot my G27 and PX4SC .40 both at the range this morning. They both shot great, though they are entirely different in looks, trigger, etc.

    I trust and carry them both. You don't have to choose one over the other unless somebody's making you.

    For carry, I like them equally. For the range, that ridged trigger safety on the Glock trigger hurts my finger after about 50 rounds, while the Beretta trigger (90two, PX4, PX4SC) is smooth as a baby's bottom.

    (I only have 1 Glock left out of several I've had, and currently have 5 Berettas (besides a .22 and a .25) , so you can see which way I lean.)

    glock owner...

    I only own a glock 19, just became an owner of two 1951 gardone VT's.... But have not shot them or any beretta yet! The post about the guy shooting himself with a glock, common sense has to be used with them.... If a gun has no external safety then you don't carry it with one in the chamber. Just have to practice pulling the gun and locking one in at the same time... Or glock just came out with a an external safety that OS on the trigger itself actually nice and getting one for mine... Now gotta go shoot some vintage beretta's...

    I get your point but when in a situation and your adrenaline takes over things that should be thoroughly thought of may just jump out of the window. I agree that he should practice more with his carry weapon, but range practice with a beretta as opposed to range practice with a glock is a bit different to me, looking at his near fatal blunder I would just settle for the cheaper more reliable weapon, the glock.

    Some departments will only issue duty weapons with a manual safety. Your friend probably did not get to choose his weapon; it was chosen by a committee for him.

    Stress affects you, of course, but the conventional thinking is that with sufficient training the safety would not be an issue.

    theyre both very different guns, and as such its really a matter of personal opinion. they are really equally as "good" if you look at it objectively and both have proven track records (assuming you are talking about the 92 FS) but i would much prefer the beretta due to the fact that it fits my hand much better than a glock. I really like the beretta 92 FS grip, and IMO the trigger pull on the 92FS is one of the nicer trigger pulls on any hand gun. So in the end, check them both out and since theyre so different, i think that one of them will jump out as significantly more desirable to you. If not, spend as much time as you can with both guns and see which one ends up working better for you. Make sure you also check the trigger pulls since that is a very important factor in both accuracy with guns and how much you like the gun (you have to pull the trigger every single time you shoot it). Good luck and let us know which you go with.

    When your looking for a pistol,As long as you like it. Be for you buy,Look for a store that rents out pistols. And see what is the right one for you.

    But if you go out to range a test one. It my be the right one for you. Glock is a mack truck in a pistol. A look of a pistol is not going to save your life. I know if I drop my glocks in two feet of mud, I know it will still work.

    A glock will never win the good looks, But it wins perfection. And you can look in to Marksmanship shooters,That have test it out many pistols. To let people know what they think is the best pistols to try out.

    perfection is everything.

    But if any one has small little girls hands, Glocks are made for man hands. Thats why we have the hottest lady's. We have a big pistol.

    Well, I fundamentally agree with Cat. What works best for YOU is what counts. One of my pistols is a Glock, and I'm pretty comfortable with it and plan to have it a long time. I've got to say, though, that beauty is a very subjective thing. I actually like the look of the Glock 17. But then, I think F-4 Phantoms, BMW GS1200's, and other things have a certain functional beauty, too. Go ahead and laugh all you want to.

    If I had to pick a gun I thought was beautiful in the aesthetic sense, I think I'd pick the Springfield Armory Range Officer. I don't own one of those, but I'm likely to sooner or later.

    The Beretta PX4 sub compact is the common sense answer to carrying a chambered pistol, The Glock is always cocked, and chambering a round is in my opinion stupid.
    I have three loaded Glocks, non are chambered. I purchased a Beretta PX 4 sub compact, because it can be chambered and not cocked. Why would anyone put a PX4 on safety? Double action is a safety by itself. All D/A revolvers are on safety because they are not cocked. D/A S/A pistols are safe unless you cock them. I also have a double action S&W BG 380 double action, no need for a safety being on. Thats why I purchased the Beretta PX4 sub 9mm chambered safely. Its great looking also, and work great.
    Whats this about a free holster? My Beretta has rail laser also, so holsters area problem.

    Get both and sell the one you don't like. Or, keep them both if you like them both.
