Your experience sounds like mine. I found the Glock very comfortable to shoot, and I was very accurate with it. I now have a 19 (just about the perfect gun, I think) and a 27. For fun and accuracy in shooting, one of the Glock's is always my go-to gun.
Had a G23 Gen4, it was my first handgun purchase for cc , could not hit the broad side of a barn with it. Now that I have bought several other handguns mostly 1911's and a couple of revolvers I have to re-think my choice of an everyday carry pistol. Was at the LGS and that G26 felt mighty fine in my hands. Made me stop and think before I purchased a Kahr K9 which, I did not buy! Dam, I know there ugly and nothing fancy to them, but all the people who love them cant be wrong, can they??
I do love my 1911's but carring 3lbs on my hip can get old!!!
I have been trying to CC my Springfield 1911. Tucked. What a pants puller-downer!
I have been anti-Glock for almost 20 years- the no safety thing. Last week i put my hands on a Glock 27. It felt great in the hand, and more importantly it pointed naturally. So I bought it. Shot it yesterday. For a short barrel, I could group very well at 15 yards standing. I know it's the shooter and not the gun, but I was really impressed! I am going to install the NY-1 trigger to make it a DAO feel, and this one is staying with me forever. Can't believe I waited this long! I'm converted.
You have been assimilated. Resistance is futile.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
I guess there has been a few of us with similar experiences. Being a 1911 guy myself, I didn't like the plastic gun AKA, Glock. Friday I shot one and I was instantly scratching my head thinking, damn, I was wrong about this gun. I also shot a XD and also loved the darn thing, was a little more accurate with the XD though. Both awsome guns!

I bought and shot my first Glock yesterday G23 .40 cal it's the easiest gun to just pick up and shoot that I have ever tried. Now I'm sold on them.
I've been a firm believer in Glock. Considering my old man carried his 22 for years as a LEO, I consider them reliable.
I currently have a Ruger LCP, but my next gun will be a Glock 26.
I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

Glocks have babies. Be careful they multiply!
If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."
