    I have both and have owed additional examples of both. I like hammer-fired better. Both can be dependable with good maintenance and lubrication but hammer-fired appeals to me as the more reliable.

    Thanks.
    This post made me laugh. I first thought HotGuns was joking, but I realize he is serious. This post is wrong not because of a difference of opinion, just because he speaks in such absolutes.
    Not all hammer fired guns have better triggers - thats absurd. I would also be willing to bet there are just as many elite units using striker fired guns and hammer fired guns. Seals draw and shoot their SIG's double action, and de-cock when they move, every time.

    Of course it does. You'd get tired of reading the same ole stuff wouldnt you?

    Nah.

    Obviously everyone prefers hammers; that's why Glocks are so popular.

    Did I get that right?

    No. Glocks are popular because Bruce Willis used one on TV when they first came out. That movie was a hit, and Glock sales surged.Now, that's all you see on TV. Unless you are dealing with specialized units like NCIS or the FBI shows where they all use Sigs.

    They are popular because they work well and they are fairly cheap. They are accurate...well, as accurate as they can be with that ratty trigger. They appeal to people that are too lazy to train, all you have to do is to remember to keep your finger off the trigger. If the Glock had a trigger like a finely tuned Colt, it would be the most popular gun ever designed.

    Speaking in absolutes - this is precisely why I loved it. In sort of a "there it is, have a nice day" sort of polite attitude.

    Do I agree with it all, I dunno. I can still like it.
