    Don't mistake my love of Glock for a disdain of the classics. I wholeheartedly appreciate the 1911, and Hi-Power even. That being said....my agency authorizes Glock .40, and all my other carry guns are DA. Point and click guns are what bring home the bacon. I will have a nice hopefully custom 1911 someday. But for what I have in my hand EVERY day, I want it not to change until I hate the feel and function of it.

    I'm with ya, I think the G4 Glocks ruin what was the best thing about Glock; No silly back straps and no goofy cup holders hanging off the side in the name of comfort. Its a combat pistol for Pete's sake. You dont build them for comfort.

    I agree completely...
    I like my Glocks just the way they are now!

    I love my GLOCK 19 3rd gen RTF, but with all the GLOCK naysayers out there they obviously felt pressure to make some "improvements". I hope they see the light and keep the 3rd generation available although I'm sure that is what was said about the gen 1 and 2. If they could find a way to make adjustable grip angles there would be no excuse to not have a GLOCK, total assimilation of the world would be complete. I've not handled a Gen 4 yet, so the jury in my head is still out on the "improvements". One of the nice thing about GLOCK is the simplicity of their models, I don't know how I would feel if they offered all models with or with out plain grip, finger grooves, RTF, RTF2, GLOCK rail, slim frame, regular frame, straight slide serrations, curved slide serrations, etc, you get the idea.

    Personally, I think there are some good things that come out of innovation. Features or changes that make an improvement are OK with me. I don't like change for change sake.

    It's never gonna end, is it?

    What's the gripes about Glocks?
    The Glock grips are too big--feels like a brick--too slick--not made for lefties--yadda-yadda!

    So Glock adds finger grooves and then comes out with the SF version for smaller hands. Very popular. Then they produce a new Generation with a grip the size of the SF, with the option of adding a different backstrap in two larger sizes for the bigger hands among us.

    Glock produces a new RTF to counter the complaints of those who say they're too slick. Takes a couple of versions to get the texture right, but they do.

    Finally Glock adds a reverseable mag release (the safety is pretty ambi already!)

    People complain that Glock doesn't listen to customer input, so Glock makes all these changes.

    And the gripes and complaints go on and on and on...

    If you want a perfect firearm that has everything you could ever ask for, including the Little Orphan Annie Decoder Ring, you need a custom firearm--and to pay for it.
    Otherwise, your stuck with a production model that tries to accomodate as large of the market as it can without making (simutaniously) Model A, model B, model C...

    Ditto. The early Gen 1 and 2 versions of the G19 were far better, for me, than the newer ones. Now and then, I handle an oldie but goodie, and it's apparent immediately after my fingers curling around the grip.

    I am perfectly happy with the Gen 3 too. I do have a 21SF but I only bought it because the price was too good to pass up.
    Quit messing with my Glocks

    Glock makes lots of guns, and for a reason. What fits you doesn't necessarily fit me. Take for example my favorite rave, Kel Tec. I hate them. But, there are lots and lots of people who love them.

    Let me say first off, I am very happy with my G26 and G23.

    My next Glock they haven't produced yet. A single stack 9mm thinner than 1 inch. Several manufacturers are producing them, Glock only does the 45 in single stack. I predict with the demand and the number of CCW licenses being issued that we'll see one shortly. I hope!

    I like my Taurus 709 Slim a lot, but, I think Glock could go one better. Like take the trigger off my G26 and put it on a Slim 9mm.

    I am one of those people who like to take advantage of the latest design wonders. I stopped shooting black powder flint locks as soon as I saw a Colt.

    After all, isn't guns on the 'bleeding edge'. A little humor! Not offensive to anyone, I hope. Not intended to be. With all the personalities on this site, its easy to offend someone.

    A slim 9mm Glock would be sweet. I'd purchase one in a heartbeat.

    Mine are 2nd Gen's, but Amen on the no change needed.

    Katana- "I'm quite happy with my 4th gen G17 so far, but I am waiting anxiously for the 4th gen G19. It's been eating everything I've fed it flawlessly so far"

    That's not an exclusive 4th Gen trait, because so have my 2nd Gen's and I've fed them a much more diverse diet

    I believe prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance should have REMAINED in schools, and the Ten Commandments should have REMAINED in schools, courthouses, and everywhere else it was before the ACLU got involved.
