    Yeah Dave but my problem is my drug of choice so far isn't just Glock!

    I have a SIG addiction, a Springfield addiction and a S&W addiction too!

    (I've even used flint and steel to burn black powder!)

    I'm just sick... very very sick!

    I'm sure most of you Glock owners have seen this, but for those who are tempted by the dark side...Link:

    My son owns a Glock. That means that I don't have to. The only plastic pistol I've ever owned shot water. Really I'm sure they are good pistols, just not for me.

    I very recently got turned onto glocks. I assisted a friend who is an NRA instructor / NRA instructor counselor during a range day. He comped me one of the kydex holsters his company manufacturers (for helping him). problem is, it only came in glock, SA XD or 1911.
    Dry fired the XD, reset toooo long, and I'm not fond of manually operated safeties, so I chose the glock.

    Got the glock, plus 2 more (I couldn't stop at one). The glock is so easy to shoot, trigger reset is short, parts are abundant, my wife likes it, can completely disassemble and reassemble it easily, can install night sights easily, get a 22lr conversion for it, and truglo TFO sights are available for it. Great gun. Downsides to me are: (1) no passive safety "type" device for reholstering, i.e., external hammer OR grip type safety. My current solution, only go kydex for holsters. (2) plastic magazines. Just can't warm up to the plastic magazines, but no reliability issues, so it is just a perception issue., (3) grip angle - it is NOT a problem. Shooting the glocks, if I transfer to a non-glock, I shoot low at first. If I shoot a non-glock for bit, then transfer to a glock, I shoot high at first. The optimal solution I see is to standardize on glock or non-glock. If I switch off, I just dry fire for a few minutes and all is well.

    I won't get rid of my HKs, Walthers and others, but I will definitley keep the glocks. And I am carrying the glock more and more now.

    +1 sojourner,

    This addiction to guns sure is expensive though... I'm already thinking about how I can get another new gun! Like women... I just love 'em all!

    I too fell under the spell of GLOCK- first the 19, the 26. I had found true religion, and then, I saw it.......The XD!. It had the desirable features of the Glock, but added a grip safety, tactile as well as visual loaded chamber and striker cocked indicators, and a better grip angle. It was....The SUPER GLOCK!. I saw, and it was good! Now I walk the path of the XD, proudly, with my head held high.

    John, I have that same setup in my 23c, that .357sig is a screamer. And in less than a min. back to .40cal some times out in the rural area stores there is not a lot of choices in ammo for the .357sig
    but I'm sure anything in it is better than spitting.
