    What peeves me are the die-hard Glock fans who stand in line to tell you what is going to go wrong with your gun even though they have never experienced it themselves. But I love to smile and give them a story of when I watched a few Glocks fall apart when my Sig didn't.

    ~ I have shot a glock 9 & a glock 40 and I didn't care for either one of them... I felt the grip was in an odd angle in the over all design of the frame. And also the grip is just too small and narrow for me... although I think they are outstanding firearms for the woman folk with smallish~petite hands. jus' kiddin... their ok I suppose... but there would be several other pistols I would choose before a glock... they jus don't do it for me.

    Was it the LAPD that very recently had a series of failures with a particular series of Glock? I have no doubt that they are good guns, but there isn't anything magical about them, they can break or suffer from quality control problems from time to time just like anything else.

    All it really boils down to is personal preference.

    I own a G19, G21, G23, G27, and G30. I use the G19 and G27 as house guns; I am not one that dislikes Glocks. Regards, Richard

    So just what is it with those rabid Glocksters who feel the need to put every other handgun down?
    When it comes to semi-autos I'm a die hard 1911 guy. I'm also the first to admit its not the right gun for everybody. To each his own.
    Those Glockophiles that run around preaching that their fantastic plastic is the greatest thing since sliced bread really piss me off. What's their problem?

    Well, to be honest - I've been harrassed even here for giving up 1911s recently, in favor of my P99. So, I think it doesn't have to be Glock fanatics only

    I am there with you. You must make your own decision on your personal firearm. I have my preferences like everyone else here, but I think the reason I have never given a Glock a chance to sit in my safe is the Glockophiles have turned me off of them with their attitude towards anything that is not Glock. My brother carries a Glock 31 on duty, I have shot it on many occasions and I don't care for the grip angle, but that doesn't make it a bad gun, I just don't want to buy a gun hoping I can get used to it. Anything you need to acquire a taste for is probably not going to ever really work well for you.

    The only gun I ever had KB with me was a Glock 10mm...
    With that said, I like Glocks (I even have one), but prefer many others...
    Where would my beloved Walther P99 be with out copying Glock's good points and improving on the, well, let's say, not so good points...

    Talking

    I do not like Glocks. My major dislikes are 1. stupid grip angle 2. no external safety 3. Not pretty. I don't think that they are all they are hyped up to be. They are good guns but not for me. I find it funny how they are suppose to be so durable and dependable. All you have to do is go over to glocktalk and look in the general glocking area and you will see why I think it is funny. Little parts all over the place breaking and numerous FTF's. They are still better than most however. With all that I have seen it seems that they come in third in the reliability game. (behind Sig and HK )

    All that being said I would still buy one. I like the look of the hard chromed slide on the full size and like their long slide models. They have a unique look and I like that.

    Oh and I am sorry if I offend anyone but I HATE the 22. I think they should have worked on that more. That thing kicks way more than it should. Why would you take something like the .40 and put it into a completely stock 9mm package? They could have at least upped the poundage on the spring!

    I have been waiting to say this for so long!!!! Bwahahahaha !!!

    Oh and when I hold it like I hold my betetta, 1911 and HK the slide will rub on the web of my hand

    I like Glocks, and prefer them as defense guns to anything else I've tried (which, because of my job, is most everything). But in the end it's just a gun, and therefore a relatively small part of the overall defensive shooting equation.

    I've only had one.

    It was a 17. I didn't keep it for very long, just couldn't get used to it. The grip, the trigger or the fugly looks. I traded it for a Kimber Eclipse. Made me happy.
