      Wow I saw no one mentioned the g34 has the lightest trigger pull of all the glocks.
      It is their version for competition and used extensively in the GSSF local target range shoots

      What I find amazing is that 67% of the respondents on this forum own a Glock.
      Amazing.

      I have a Glock G27. I carry it daily. It always works and it is fairly easy to shoot. It is light and has a good round count (9 + 1). It has always been reliable and it is easy to carry. But it does not have the feel of a high-precision weapon. So I will need to get something else. It is a very logical choice.

      Sort of like sensible shoes on an attractive woman. It makes sense, but stilletos are sexier.

      I never owned a glock until recently. i had studied on a 10mm handgun. everything i had read and heard, pushed me toward glocks for reliability, strength, and value. i purchased a glock 20 10mm. i put a 22lb. recoil spring and replacement guide rod in it. i replaced the sights with meprolight night sight sights, only because i wanted adjustable sights, and thats all i could get at the time. dropped a aftermarket connector in it. i shoot some factory rounds through it, but expend more reloads than anything. i didnt like glocks at first, but i learned to love mine. didnt care for the grip, but it actually functions great in the 10mm heavy loads. i dropped a young doe with it in deer season this year. i was as tickled as a little kid, when i watched it drop in it's tracks. keep on blastin'

      A glock is a gun everyone should have at one point in their life in my opinion. It's reliable, low maintenance, and inexpensive for what you get. Glocks are the best bang for your buck IMO.

      My husband bought a G21 and that was the first Glock I ever shot. Didn't do too badly with it, but it didn't feel quite right in my hands, I didn't feel like I had much control over it. I somehow got it set in my mind that I wanted a 9mm pistol. I went to firearms dealer and happen to go on a Glock competition weekend. One of the guys asked me why I wanted the gun. I told him that for the time being (over a year ago), it would be mainly for target and maybe a home self defense gun. I did tell him though that I might want to get my CCW and wouldn't want to get a different gun. He took me immediately to the Glocks and pulled out a Gen 3 G19. I knew as soon as I picked it up that it fit better in my hands and that I could get a good grip on it. I have had a few occasions where I have stove piped it or FTE but it was due to my limpwristing it. Now that I have a solid grip and stance, I RARELY have any problems with it. As a matter of fact I qualifed for my CPL class with it today. I am a strong believer that no matter what gun you choose, if you don't like the way it feels in your hands, you're not going to shoot it well. Whether it's a Glock, Kimber, Bersa, S&W, whatever. So with that in mind, make sure you go and hold a lot of guns before you buy any. I don't like the Gen 4 Glocks because I think the grip is too "prickly" and it hurts my hands. Happy shooting and good luck with whatever you decide!!!!

      Nah, where's the fun in that?

      Actually, the smaller (G19/G26 size) guns use one style of barrel lug, and the larger guns use another that is slightly different, so the factory barrels between these two groups are not interchangeable. Some of the aftermarket companies make barrels for the shorter guns that are as long as the full-size guns' barrels, but they use the same lockup lug as the short guns' stock barrels to make this work; these longer barrels can't be safely used in the full-size guns themselves. Of course the shorter-than-normal barrels aren't safe for use in the longer slides of the larger guns.

      And then there are the differences like balance, sight radius, minor differences in the location of the "hump" on the rear of the grip which changes the "feel" of the gun in your hand; LOTS of reasons to actually collect the different size guns/frames. Add in the different frame gripping surfaces and finger-groove options (Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, Gen3 RTF-2, Gen4), and they're worse than potato chips; no one can have just one!

      I am an older Combat Veteran and have been a pistoleer (including revolvers) most of my adult life I find I am into more old school pistols like Colt, Walther, Luger and Sig Sauer. However, I carry a Glock 36 as my PPW and I love to shoot my Clock 17 at the range. Folks, that should tell you something.

      I have a Glock 19 Gen3. Don't love the feel. Didn't like the factory sights (replaced them with the Advantage Tactical pyramid). Still working on getting good with the trigger.

      But it's been 100% reliable with minimal maintenance, and it shoots where I point it.

      Just now saw this.

      No, no Glocks now.

      I have previously owned a G17, G19, G34, G26 and G17RTF2 over the years (among many other guns)

      The RTF2 was the last one I had. I did like some of the changes, but I got sick of getting hit in the forehead with ejected brass no matter what I had done to the gun. I also prefer DA/SA guns, so I sold it to but something else.

      The very first G17 I bought in 1993 was my first gun. It was a super lemon that jammed all the time. Even sent it back to Glock once. Had a smith look at it too. G19 was okay, but the G19 and G26 - I always shot it low and left. It wasn't until I got the G34 a few years later that I had a Glock I could shoot well.

      The stock trigger was 1 lb lighter, and apparently that was enough to solve my low/left problem with a Glock. But, when I got really into the P99, I got sick of the mushy Glock trigger and sold the G34.

      I have zero plans to ever buy another Glock. Sorry

      It's weird....I like to look at Glocks and read about them but I have no desire to own one. No doubt they are excellent handguns but there are other handguns I'd rather pick-up at the $450-$600 price point.
