    An awful thing happened to my new Glock 19 today...

    ...I grew to like it. A lot.

    Smooth, excellent sight aquisition. And man oh man, is it FAST! On target right out of recoil. Is headed to a guy for a few mods, and then it is the new carry gun. Knuckle is a bit sore, but JD's guy will fix that for me. Looks like a few more Glocks may be in the future.

    P.S.- No Kool Aid was swallowed, not a fanboy, and SIGs still rule supreme.
    But I am starting to understand why the Glock geeks preach the way they do.

    Glock Geeks? I'll take that as a compliment......

    If I lived in Michigan and wore three layers of clothes year round, I might consider a SIG for concealed carry. Until then, Glocks will ride with me in the heat of Orlando summers. A gun that
    will stand up to days in salt water with no ill effects laughs at my sweaty butt in August. Seen too many rusty SIGs in Florida to even consider one for carry.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    I grew to like my Glock after owning one, was always one of those "meh" items for me. Right now I can say I wouldn't trust carrying anything else.

    I feel exactly the same way. Before I had a Glock, I never hated them, but I didn't love them either. I believe I told a friend once that a Glock was like a Toyota Camry - Relatively cheap and very reliable, but it would never be a Corvette. Fast-forward 5 years, and a G27 is my EDC, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I still don't drink the Kool-Aid - I think they are ugly as sin - but I respect them for everything they are. Maybe it is possible to pay Camry price for Corvette performance...

    Congrats on the new GLOCK 19, there is nothing better. What mods are you having done? I hope you are not fixing what is not broken.

    The Glock 19 is a home. Anything else is just a hotel or temporary residence. I figure there are some that might even deny owning a G19 for certain reasons, but have one for good reasons. Hey...it is what it is. I've been called a Geek, and I have also preached. Every time I see someone associate the term "kool aid" with Glocks I simply wonder why. The only thing I've ever associated "kool aid" with is the Jonestown tragedy. Look it up if you're too young to remember. Bad things can happen with "kool aid", but Glock has got thirst on the run! Drink at your own risk.

    Look Zonk, no insult was intended. Glock geeks, SIG snobs, all the same. I love my SIGs, and am starting to love Glocks. We're all friends here.

    BTW, if you are truly offended that I said Glock geek, keep in mind you called me a "SIG snob in the larval stage" not so long ago. Laughed all night over that. Should we meet, beer is on me.

    I can see the magazine spread now: "Get the gun that laughs at Zonker's sweaty butt!"

    Nice! I just picked up a Glock 19 today, but haven't gotten to shoot it yet.
