      I am going to be picking one of these bad boys up very soon. I like the fact that Glock is a reliable gun and that you can find parts for them everywhere. I will be getting either a 19 or 17 in 9mm sometime in the next week or two depending on the deals that I find.

      I don't own a Glock and do not plan on purchasing one.

      I have two a G26 and a G30, shocked the hell out of my wife and me too, as I swore at one time that I'd never buy one, well I didn't I bought two! I don't care for the looks of the full size Glocks, but the compacts are really cool.

      I have a G17 gen 2 police trade-in bought years ago. Always reliable but not my first choice in 9mm. I prefer my old P226 and particularly my CZ 75B over the G17. In the past I had once fired a G22, thought it okay but nothing special. Recently went shooting with a buddy and his new G19 gen 4. Now that got my attention. The gen 4 felt good in my XL hands and both the owner and I were impressed with it. At this time I am saving up the scratch for a CCW carry piece and the G19 gen 4 is in the running along with several others: G26, CZ 75B Compact, CZ P07, S&W Shield, CW9 and one or two others.

      But I do own a G20, because there are no XD's made in 10mm, and I actually shoot it better at longer distances than anything I've tried. I have to admit that despite the fact that Glocks don't feel right in my hands, I have been able to shoot every one that I've ever tried surprisingly well. I'll likely own another or so, eventually, and I recommend them to anyone who wants a simple, accurate semi-auto.

      It's hard for me not to like any machine that is simple and does exactly what it claims to do and will keep on doing it, whether you take proper care of it, or not. Besides, who really cares if it gets holster wear, or dinged up a little from hard use? It will never be pretty, anyway.
      The 10mm's and the 40's are snappier pistols especially suited for the highway patrol because with their extra power they can more easily shoot through cars.

      If you truly need a pistol this powerful then they are perfect. The next more powerful handguns are the 38 special and the 357 which are revolvers, so that gives you an ammo capacity problem with the revolvers. But those were also designed with police work in mind, particularly in the 1920s and 1930s for Chicago and NYC where the mobs were bootlegging.

      The downside to a 10mm or a 40 is that with the extra power, the bullet keeps travelling longer, and this gives a greater potential for more collateral damage.

      The other downside is that with a 9mm or a 45 ACP the recoil is less, so therefore you can recover and shoot faster with a 9mm or a 45 ACP than anyone can with a 10mm or a 40.

      It all depends on what you need and what you want.

      But in his show on The Military Channel, GSgt R Lee Ermey USMC(Ret) has aptly demonstrated that the Glocks (1) fire faster and (2) are as accurate as any other pistol.

      So I have stopped criticizing the Glocks myself. But I do not like the absent external hammer (Glocks use an internal striker mechanism instead), and I do not like the "plastic," and I do not like the grip and feel. But that's just me.

      Glocks cost less and therefore more law enforcement agencies can afford to buy more of them, and money talks. So Glocks are inexpensive but not cheaply built.

      The US military uses Beretta 9mm's at the moment, with the USMC and USN wanting to return to the 45 ACP. And more European countries us the CZ's than any other.

      My own personal preference is the CZ 97B which is a 45 ACP. I like the feel and the external hammer. I loved my 1911 A1 Springfield in the military and I love the CZ version of it now.

      Since I bought my Glocks, G26 and G30 which at one time I swore I'd never buy, I find myself carrying either one along with a Kahr MK40 all stainless steel .40 cal. in a pocket holster, the Kahr is in my opinion the best compact pistol ever made, because of it's size, weight and quality of construction. I have a variety of handguns and find that I carry these the most often especially the MK40, which I've carried every day since I bought it. Overall I prefer the most compact pistols in the largest caliber, the G30 .45 with a 9 round magazine is to me an ideal size for a .45 it also has the advantage along with the G26 of accepting high capacity magazines if so desired, and with their shortened grip also accept the smaller magazines for better concealment. Arizona allows open carry in that case a full size gun is not an issue, I prefer, unless hiking on the trails to carry concealed. While hiking I like to carry either a single action .45 Long Colt or .44 revolver with shot loads and a semi auto .45 even then I still carry the Kahr.

      The value , of the first striker fired ..."tactical tupperware" may have some merit.
      I see the primary forces that make it the winner of the popularity contest....
      1. Lots of COPS use one.
      2. Maintanance requirements... of the pistol, favors the average , lazy, unknowledgeable gunowner.
      3.It is the ... Ak of the handgun catagory.... albeit the accuracy is above par.. for an average priced, homely lookin' ,utilitarian, weapon.

      An excellent, reliable and easy to use utilitarian(designed to be useful or practical rather than attractive) pistol.

      I own the Glock 17, 19 (Gen4s) and 42. My next purchase the CZ-75B (currently on layaway) and then it will be the Glock 41. I carry my 19 for EDC, and love it. In fact, I'd just traded it for a Steyr C9-A1 last Friday, but just got my money back today, and I went straight to get my 19 back. I'll never get rid of it again!!! Looking forward to getting the CZ! But I love my Glocks. Nothing fancy about them. They just work! Safe. Accurate. Reliable.

      No. Have owned two Glock 17's because of their legend, but each time I decide they are too clunky, too boxy, and that I have handguns that do the same job better. I seem to have the urge to give a 17 one-more-try (is 3rd time a charm?) but may try instead for the small new 380 model.

      Consider the Gen4s. They feel different than the previous generations. I went to Glock on that premise. Before that, I wasn't crazy about them b/c of the way they felt to me. I will also vouch for the Glock 42. I like it a lot.
