I just don't get the 'grip' fuss so many have against the Glock.
I can pick up any pistol and hit with it, from 1911 to Glock to D/A revolver. I have never noticed this thing called 'grip angle'
If you like Glocks you adapt. If you don't you buy something else.
Or you can send your Glock somewhere to have the hump removed. This can cost some dollars! Custom work can send you on an expensive journey!

Soldering iron, dremel, and some patience, and it ended up being fairly easy to carve the grip up and re texture it. The 2 backstraps I have I made out of oak. If I ever see the need I'll be making more back straps out of delrin.
I cannot remember the name of the company, but there is a company that machines 9mm and 40 glocks and gives you 3 back straps you can interchange. It costs over 100 bucks, and they don't offer it for the 20 and 21 frames, so it was a moot point for me, but it did end up being some good inspiration for me to do mine by hand.
The typical method of epoxying I've never done, but I do suppose it allows the grips to be reduced a bit more than the way I did it, so for some I imagine that the epoxy method would be superior.
I have a Sig, Kimber, XD-S, and a Glock. I can hit with any of them. Rent one and see if you like it.

I had to give up on glocks, I love them...I love how they shoot...I love the utilitarian principle.
I hate the grip angle, it's not comfortable to me in the least. Having to cant your wrist at a forward angle obviously helps lower recoil as well, just not for me I suppose. I can't believe the people in this thread that say they can't tell the grip has an angle, really?
Funny thread. I have a friend that can shoot anything. You know one of those people that can pick up just about any weapon and shoot it very well. Anything from a block glock to a 1911, grip angle, size, cal. really doesn't make a diff to this guy. Why is that? Maybe because he is proficient with firearms not a particular brand of firearm. Are his hands to big / small for a particular gun??? Is the grip angle to uncomfortable for his delicate wrists. These things probably are not an issue. But chances are when the chips are down he'll be able to use what ever weapon comes to hand. He also has a wide range of guns to chose from. A good weapon isn't in most cases designed for one person but for the masses. If it don't fit ya get one that does. There are lots of good firearms out there not just glock sig or brand of 1911 or any of the pocket guns. The gun ain't squat compared to the flesh and bone and brain that wheeled it. Glock as good as a sig shoot what fits ya.
