Had one got rid of it
Yeah, have a g36. Makes for a nice easy to carry .45 auto. Also contemplating a g34 for fun.
if I want pretty I will go buy a painting of a sunset but if I want a gun that does the job I get a glock. the only time you see it is when it's time for business
No reason a person cannot have pretty and reliable, if that is what they are looking for.
Although my design training came equipped with the rubric "form follows function," there is no restriction within that ęsthetic that says that edges can't be smoothed, lines can't be made to flow, boxy shapes can't be rounded, and curves can't be, well, curvaceous.
I have to admit that some parts of some Glocks exhibit some of those modifications.
But when one considers the Glock Gestalt (the Germanically-appropriate word), ęsthetics seems to have not only been forgotten, but also actively thrown out the nearest factory window.
But, yes, they do go BANG! when you want them to. It's just that doing that isn't enough.
Glocks seem to be fine tools. I like them for that purpose. Since I can also get the beauty of a well made steel handgun that works just as well, I tend to go that route.
No, I don't, No I never will, unless someone GIVES me one, and then I would sell it, or trade it just as fast as I could. I just don't like or trust the unsafe "Safe Action" trigger system on Glocks or any of the other Glock copies. such as... S&W Sigma, M&P, Taurus 24-7, Springfield XD, etc. Uh, and did I mention how UGLY they are?
Yeah, right. The same "unsafe" Safe-Action trigger that over 65% of law enforcement agencies use.
How safe a Glock is in the hands of any given person, is a direct reflection on the safety attitudes and habits of the user. Most fans of the Glock design know and understand this; some of its detractors know it, too, and that sometimes goes a long way in explaining why they feel as they do.
Yes, I'm a fan. I like them, shoot them quite well, and enjoy their simplicity and clean design. Not all of them work flawlessly, but that's true of most semi-automatic handguns, and most machines in general. And I never worry about rubbing an ugly bare spot on the slide with my holster, or leaving a fingerprint etched into the deep blue finish; they are all pre-uglyfied, and ready for use.

It should be mentioned that the only way to get "glock leg" is from, well, you know.......
Unfair, maybe, but like I said..................I realize that there is no such thing as an accident....always negligence.....
Even my Greenie Stickem Cap Gun I had when I was a kid was made out of METAL. The only experience I ever had with a gun made out of plastic was when UNCLE SAM gave me a Black Plastic Gun when he wanted to send me to Vietnam and all it did was JAM JAM JAM.
When life gives you jam, add MRE peanut butter.
Wish to H... I still had my M14!
I've owned a G27 and G19. Didn't really care for either one. They are uncomfortable to shoot and didn't point naturally for me.
If my Senco framing nailer ever goes bad I will buy a Glock to replace it. I guess they are good guns but they don't feel right when I hold them. Not comfortable.
I`ve had 2 Glocks and both ran flawlessly but when I purchased my HK USP my last Glock had to go...But I wouldn't hesitate purchasing another...What other gun can you buy a complete set of inside parts very cheap and put them in yourself without a gunsmith...I`d venture a guess that if Glock made another Model that had a different "look" they might take the rest of the market they don`t have now..Jim
a buddy had a glock he and i traded guns for a clip or two. I shot two rounds and got my px4 back. there just so plain. I like an external hammer and more comfert
I do not own a Glock but I do own a S & W Sigma which is widely recognized as a Glock clone. I really like that gun.
I've owned several Glocks in the last 20 years. They are dependable, accurate, and relatively inexpensive. I've tried my very best to adapt to the grip but with no success. I sold my G23 a couple of weeks ago to a friend. I'm stickin' to my Colts, Smiths, and Rugers. For those that like the grip, you have a good gun that will probably do you well. Just my two bits.
