    Down in my area Glocks are fairly popular but everyone has their own opinion. Some here love the Glock, some give it it's due while others don't like them and go for other guns. Most of the PD's here use Glocks - not all of them but most.

    I love my Glock 17 more than any pistol I've ever owned. That being said, I am also crazy about many other makes of handguns. I've hardly met a gun I didn't like.

    The Glock is a reliable and accurate gun and I'll freely admit it's a worthy combat pistol. But, in my hand, it feels like I've nailed a short piece of 2x4 to a long piece of a fencepost and tried to point it. I don't buy guns just because they're reliable and accurate though, I buy them because they're accurate, reliable, fit my hand, shoot well for me, AND there ALSO has to be an element of pride of ownership and I just can't find that pride in the polymer striker fired pistols.....guess I've just owned too many Hi Powers, CZ's, stainless Smiths and good quality 1911's for that, besides being an olphart who's stuck in his ways. And I'm not looking down my nose at Glocks either.....like I said, they're competent guns, it's just that they just don't do anything for me.

    As for somebody mistreating somebody else because of their like or dislike of a particular design, well, IMHO, God created idiots so us more tolerant types would have a reference point of bad behavior to stay away from. Sortof like gun czars on internet gun forums.....two peas in the same pod and we don't need either one of them. Best wishes to you guys.

    HA. Hay you old olphart. Don't like them striker fired poly guns? WHY YOU WASKEWY WABBIT.

    One of my best friends does not like poly guns. But admits he has never owned or shot one.

    I like most every poly gun I see, though Kel-Tec's have done little to get me going. Their new

    I think is worth at least a cursory look.

    Much like you though the guns I like most are my metal guns. Due to conditions beyond my control it is difficult for me to carry the weight of a metal frame pistol for to many hours. The poly pistols are light enough when loaded to allow me to carry for many hours more before my comfort level becomes unbearable. I know the weight between metal and poly is only a mater of oz or a pound, but for me it makes a difference.
    I look forward to the day that I can set enough back to get this little gem. Though, I love 1911s and

    an 18+1 9mm 1911 just screams TAKE ME HOME

    I have similar issues with weight, only I chose to go with an alloy frame, which is how I wound up with a Bersa T9. I've fired a number of poly guns and the ravages of age may one day force me into one. If so, my favorites are the FN FNP and the S&W M&P. Ol' Arthur will prolly keep me in 9mm, although my S&W M4006 is still dooable for me.......just don't think I could handle a .40 very well in a lightweight gun any more however.

    FN. Don't think I have ever seen one in person. Many years ago I came close to buying a Five-N-Seven but once I heard how much a box of ammo for one was I decided on something a little bit closer to a ammo buying reality.
    Nice looking guns though.

    Until recently, I swore I would never own a Glock. Their style and trigger didn't appeal to me. I've owned a 1911 for quite some time, and I love everything about it. About a week ago, my wife told me she would like a pistol for herself (possibly for ccw) after we saw an idpa match together. I tried to hide my excitement as we drove to a gun shop a few days later. She held quite a few and eventually decided she liked the Glock 36. We bought it and took it to the range the next day. It will never replace my 1911, but I have to admit, it's grown on me quite a bit. It's all business - no frills, nothing fancy. As much as I like a SA trigger, I like the glock, too. I guess I might have liked Glock more if I had given the company a chance a long time ago.
