    Well..It's true that many Glock owners are pretty rabid fans of their weapon(s) I can't remember ever getting heckled for not having a Glock but it might have happened. I usually just go about my business at a range and let my targets do the talking. Basically most opinions are like noses...Everyone has one and they all smell. I'm sure there are asses like those that are fanboys of any given brand. I did have a guy come up to me at a range with a Bryco 380 with all the pride of a custom gun owner saying "This is my Homeland Security!" I just smiled and said if it feels giid then you're halfway there.

    It's all about that lovin' feelin' when you pick it up. Most any major manufacturer builds a quality weapon. But if it don't have the right feel For You then you can't be comfortable with it. And if you don't have that comfort and trust it's just a paperweight that can rea;;y get you hurt.

    yea its all about what feels good to u, for me it was my dads glock in the 80's when i first held that thing it was like i had found the missing piece of me, and when i turned 21 i bought my first glock a G19C then it was my G27 then my G22 then my G32 then my G23 then my G26 which i carry everyday in my vest as a backup

    iv owned 1911's and walthers and sigs and i just kept going back to the glock

    oh and revolvers, i love them to they just fit and point so naturally

    I think it is just like your favorite sports team.....the word FAN is a shortened from of FANATIC!!!! So with that....people either like...or don't like certain weapons. Some may have a good reason....most of them don't....they just "follow the herd." I enjoy my Glocks, and for the most part, have not had any failures with them in any way. But I am always open to trying and experimenting with other brands...and I use other brands all the time. It all boils down to what fits your hand best, what you feel comfortable carrying, the manual of arms for that weapon, and how well you can shoot with it. That covers all the angles for me.

    I was very anti-Glock before this. And I must admit that my opinion on the gun itself has changed.

    But Glockhounds continue to give Glock a very black eye. Glockophants. Glock nuts that praise the brand and feel that no other brand is of any value are all wrong in so many ways.

    Sorry that you have had such crappy run ins with them but the truth is, not all Glock owners are this way. There are those that are not taken in by the Glock religion.

    Please try not to group all Glock owners in to that mess of single minded tarts.
    Many of us have a Glock, in addition to the many other great brands of pistols out there.

    Hope you have a better day next you go to the range.

    Also, if you are ever in the Saint Louis Mo area, maybe we can shoot at a TopGun or something and you will meet a Glock owner that is not like all the rest you have met.
    Online I do meet decent Glock-owners like you Freedom1911. I've met enough to convince me that there is a village somewhere on earth where Glock-owners and CZ-owners, and even S&W owners can sit down together at the table of brotherhood and not argue over the last drumstick.

    Hope to meet one of you in real-life someday. I'm in KCMO btw. Rarely get over to St. Louis.

    Glock Cults

    As a Glock owner, I am a fan of light triggers and a gun that will go BANG when I need it to. However, I realize that there are other individuals who have other preferences. All my friends preferred the triggers on my Rugers. I bought my first gun ever, a Ruger P94 .40S&W because that was what my money could buy and I got tired of using my company's loaner pistol. Everyone in my circle loved to shoot it, but I HATED it. It was a brick, hard to conceal and find holsters for it, but soaked up recoil like a sponge. The same with my P345. I sold them both to buy my Glock and my Taurus. The Glock fits my left hand and I am deadly accurate with it. My only gripe with Glocks is that they are so blocky. I'm looking at a 1911 for my next purchase. That said, I bash almost no one on their their choice of pistols except for Hi-Point. I've heard too many stories from gun salesmen and owners of people blowing up their Hi-Points using JHP's and I actually witnessed one shattering and being totally useless after hitting the concrete.

    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.
