    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.

    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!

    Have you tried the adjustable backstraps on the Gen 4's? Granted my first and (so far) only gun is a Gen 4 Glock, I have been shooting them and other guns for a while. I found them much more comfortable with the large backstrap, my accuracy increased some also.

    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 often carry my Springfield micro compact .45, usually in a Remora in my cargo pants pocket but occaisonally on the belt in a nice rgrizzle leather rig. It does get heavy, but sometimes that heft is also reassuring.

    Yep...I'm no longer a whipper-snapper, either. Shot one 25 yrs ago...not for me. Waited until I shot a Gen 4 22 - loved the new texture...of course, waiting 25 years got me a gun with a recall on the RAS, but I loved it so much, had to have another...and I'm thinking about replacing a 3rd caliber, too. They just do the job.

    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."
