    Cool gun in pawn shop

    i was in a pawn shop today just looking around.they had 4 pistols and i asked to see the glock.
    which turned out to be a glock 22.i have no glocks and never even held one until today.
    the grip was so blocky and uncomfortable to me i could hardly believe it.i guess i know now why i dont own any.
    along w/reasons like plastic sights and plastic guide rods.i know there supposed to be very reliable,but i don't see how they manage it. i hope some of the other models are a lot more comfortable.

    Can't say much about the fit in your hand, except that human hands are very adaptable things. The grips on the 9mm/.40/.357 Glock are all identical.

    As far as reliability, the Glock has objectively (not a matter of opinion) proven to be among the most reliable pistols ever designed.

    I second that. I did not like Glocks the 1st time I picked one up. That was 7 Glocks ago(still have 4). People will adapt, once I fired one I found it easy to manage recoil, meaning quicker follow up shots and they were easy to keep on target. If you are talking about a 4" combat or tactical group, it is not a problem with a Glock.
    You might change your mind after you fire one, just keep an open mind.

    Good point and another way of looking at it regarding other brands. Do keep an open mind, because a Glock is not for everyone.

    You'll be very surprised on what Glock have to offer.

    The VERY first thing I look at before purchasing a pistol is the grip. If it doesn't feel comfortable then, you should check out an Hk P2000 or some of the Sig models. "Different strokes for different folks", they say.

    I find that very interesting. Perhaps it's me, but I found the G22 to be a perfect fit for my hand. I do have fairly large hands, but didn't feel that was part of it.
    When I shoot it feels like a perfect extension, easy to hold and easy to bring back on target.

    yes, the grip is the reason i decide weather it will or wont work for me .i own a sig 239 and xd 40 cal and find them very comfortable, in fact i shoot 40 cal s&w rounds the best and with hardly much recoil with my xd over any gun.

    The feel of the Glock in one's hand is a funny thing. I had a strange thing happen to me. I hate the way the 21 feels in my hand. But when I went out to shoot it anyway... it felt fine. Great, actually. So the grips are a strange thing.

    Either that or Mike has finally brainwashed me.

    I shot a 1911 for almost twenty years before I changed to Glock. Of course the Glock felt unnatural at first, but I was committed to the gun, and after some shooting it felt perfectly fine.

    The Glock just has a combination of features that was hard for me to ignore, so maybe it was just that I really wanted to make it work. But now I shoot my Glocks as well as I used to shoot a 1911, and as far as I am concerned, it's objective results that count, at least in a defense gun.

    I fought the glock for a long time because it was plastic. After reading about them I finally broke down and bought one of the ugly bastards. It sure wasn't love at first site. It was love at first shot and then I loved the looks. I bought my glock 17 sometime in the mid 80's and still have it. I have my Dad's 1911 that means a lot to me and my 2 boys want the 17 when I pass. I own 4, the 17, 26, 30 and 21c. I like having the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation. I'll have to get another one when a 4th gen comes out.

    Wink pistols

    maybe ill try shooting one later.i think i would only be interested in the 27 though.
    i just have a hard time getting to trust a gun w/so much plastic in it though. especially a plastic guide rod.

    You have and endless supply of aftermarket equipment. I have stainless guide rods with reduced weight springs for a softer shooter with a little extra weight in the front.
    Stainless guide rod and spring about $25, but the plastic captured OEM glock guide rod will last you forever. It is a Glock.
