      I don't know if psychology is quit that simple. I have purchased pistols before and just didn't like them after I had shot them several times, so I traded them in for something else. If I really like a pistol, then I keep it and there are reasons why I like that pistol. I love the Glock pistol for numerous reasons, but wouldn't expect others to feel the same way. There are many choices so we can all grab the one we want.

      It's easy to bash Glocks because all Glocks are very similar to one another. They differ in size, capacity and caliber, but the guns share the same basic design and features.

      Sig, S&W, Ruger, etc. make all kinds and varieties of handguns, each with different features to appeal to a different segment of the gun-consuming market.

      Glock does not make a 1911. Glock does not make a revolver. Glock makes Glocks.

      So, it's easy to say "Glocks suck!" A Glock is a Glock is a Glock.

      Great pistol, it might not be your cup of tea, but a great firearm. Any pistol that is reliable as a Glock, and is carried by more law enforcement can't be bad.

      Dealing with a few law enforcement agencies, leads me to the "lowest bid" reasoning.

      I'm not a Glock fan, but that's just me. If there were only one perfect gun we'd all own it, and there would be no choices.

      Maybe it's just me but I don't detect rampant "hate" towards Glocks. What I do detect is indifference or mere lack of preference, which is often interpreted by hard core enthusiasts as hate. In the mind of rabid fanboys (and fangirls), when someone else fails to see the brilliance and genius that they themselves see, they conclude it can only be hate motivating the other. Happens everywhere as has been pointed out. Happened big time in 2008 regarding a certain elected official...

      ... as I posted up-thread....

      Hating an inanimate object is pretty much an exercise in futility. One gains nothing from it.
      It's really tough to overcome personal preference. ...

      Someone pointed out the grip angle on a Glock as being the reason for the love/hate relationship. I was one of those haters for that very reason, grip angle. But many years later, I am a Glock Lover of sorts, Actually I love all guns as long as they go bang when needed. I just recently got into Glocks, and now they are my primary concealed weapon of choice.

      But, what if I like the Beretta 92 fs and the Glock? Does that make me a bad person?

      Ah, the wonders of PhotoShop!

      Obviously, God uses that program on his Apple Computer, to manipulate church and synagogue signs.

      When people say they hate a gun - especially something as popular as glock - i think its rediculous. I prefer glocks but i like my berettas and xd and m&p too. none of them suck. If you dont like one of them as much as another, thats cool. But to say you HATE one? Get off the internet koolaid dude and get outside.

      For a long time I looked at Glocks ans decided I don't the looks of it. I much perferr blued steel and wood. I shot my friends one day and found it to be easy to shoot , good grip and good accuracy, it was nice to handle. Aweek later in the local gun shop I was looking at a mod.19, Now it's mine and listed among my favorites to carry. How could I have been so wrong for so long. Not very much for pretty but pretty much for good.

      Well, OK—but next time, shoot enemies instead. It's much easier.

      I've had a dog in this hunt before. I "almost" managed to avoid doing this again.

      First, as a retired mechanical engineer, there is really nothing wrong with Glocks from a functional standpoint.
      Well, maybe the Glock's ability to increase E.R. trips by L.E.O.'s popping themselves in the foot, calf, or thigh is a negative.

      But, really, are we put on this Earth to select our personal possessions based on mere functionality ? I think not.

      1. There is a reason I don't care about my fridge, my stove, or my clothes washer. They cool, they heat, and they clean. All I ask.

      2. There is a reason I'm single, and have three cars in my garage. Do I need three. No.
      Is any one of them a Dodge Neon ? Or, God Forgive me for mentioning it, a Prius Pussy Wagon ? No. HELL NO !

      A '99 Jeep Cherokee with WAY too much real 4wd stuff, a 2004 Vette Z06 Z16, and a '71 Camaro Z28 "original, unrestored".

      If you have to figure out whether Glocks reside behind Door 1 or Door 2 above, then you are simply beyond redemption. Sorry.

      All this gun talk, and philosophy too!

      Dang, we're gettin' esoteric 'round here!

      Ya know... If you were to ask me to choose between the lady and the tiger, well, some days I think I'd go with the tiger.
      Anyway, I'll take what's behind Door #2...

      ...Um, or, maybe sometimes, monkeys.
