    I tried hard to hold out for the Gen4 19. But could not.
    I don't shoot it as well as the 17 but I have improved with it a lot. I figure a few hundred more rounds I should be able to shoot about as well with the 19 as with the 17.

    Have to admit. I did not like the Glock, but I am very happy with my purchases and how well the gun works. Even my brother and sister like them and my friends.
    They, the G17 or 19, are two of the favorite guns to shoot when we go to the range. Funny how that happened when no one was looking.

    Changes to Glocks

    Change grip angle to be natural pointing like the 1911.

    Novac sights.

    I like the look of the square gun. I'm very partial to the the 2nd generation glocks.

    I think they way they look and function is fine the way it is. I would like to see barrels that would shoot cast bullets as well as jacketed bullets to save a little in the reloading deparment but that has nothing to do with cosmetics.

    The Glock is a trademark design ... and I don't believe the company will make any radical changes at this point. Although I prefer the nice foward angle look of the slide on the M&P series ...
    The grip on the M&P is also nicer.

    Charter Arms makes revolvers in pink. Would a pink Glock work for you?

    I would like to see Glock do some real innovation. They are sticking with one basic design--but eventually they will be left behind if they don't do any real new design work.

    I know it ain't broke, so why try to fix it, but that was the attitude of Checker Cab company and their cars grew obsolete--and the effort to update came too late and too weak. I think Glock could paint themselves into the same position.

    function or form

    glock has a certain functional beauty,and the same goes for any weapon.if they make them too pretty,you'll see them being worn at the miss america pageant,during the swimsuit competition .how cool huh.

    They sure could.

    The Glock-a-holic's don't want to hear it, but it can happen to any company and has.

    Glock lives on basically one design with small variations for barrel length, grip length and caliber.

    When Glock was new to the market they had the polymer frame business all to themselves; but nowadays they have an abundance of competition.

    Glock runs the real risk of becoming the next Checker Cab Company. A one product company that got left behind eventually. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Checker_Taxi


    Glock needs to come out with a weapon to compete with the Kel-Tec PF9 and the Kahr products. Also a version of the Ruger LCP.

    They already have the market for the police arms; why give up the back up weaponry to others?

    The styling of the Glock is immaterial to the primary customers (police and military) and I would not bother with that at all. Indeed the appearance is their trademark.

    But they need to turn out some contemporary weapons.

    As the start of this thread pre-dated the last two changes to the Glock lineup (the RTF and the Gen4 pistols), I think we can put this one to bed now.

    Thanks to all that participated!
