    I've heard they have a plasticy feel to them. I don't see it. In fact, I'm considering a Glock 23 for my primary CCW.
    Reliability, size and stopping power being the main reasons.

    Never shot a Glock. Some people like them, some people don't. To each his own, I guess. I'm really comfortable with my XD 9 SC.

    We have programs for people like you.

    Guns are like shoes. They have to fit. Just because everyone else in the world loves them, doesn't mean it works for you.

    Find what fits, is comfortable, reliable, etc. It doesn't matter what everyone else likes. You have to be comfortable with the gun.

    Your only wierd to a glock fan and an anti-gun person.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    I own a lot of handguns and I have a glock 17 9mm It was the first one and I haven't bought any of the others since partly because I like the 1911 platform

    Nope, nothing wrong with you. You are not alone. A lot of people don't like the grip angle, or simply prefer all steel weapons.

    I don't like guns that feel like bricks either.

    nothing wrong with them, except that they're glocks.

    seriously, though, they're great guns, i just can't shoot them; the grip angle is unnatural to me, and the grip panels are uncomfortable. if i could afford a Robar job, i could be talked into buying one. until then, glocks are a no-no for me.

    They are not for everyone, some people like them, others hate them.

    One question, is it the gun? The 10mm is a pretty snappy round, were you disappointed with the recoil or didn't shoot that particular gun as well as others? Have you shot 10mm out of other guns and liked it?

    Not picking on your feeling for Glocks, just curious.

    Nothing wrong with not liking glocks. No one gun is going to be the answer for everyone, just like no one make of car is for everyone. Myself I prefer CZ's. Been my gun of choice since I bought and shot my first one, 2 years ago.

    Ugh. The 10mm is like trying to use a 4x4" as a bat. To a high degree, "ergonomics" are more a matter of training than real ergonomic concerns. Having mid-sized hands, though, the 40 cal and larger Glocks are too bulky for me to handle with confidence.

    As far as the "infatuation" goes, purely on a statistical basis there isn't anything out that is more reliable (production volume/failures & CS returns.) XD is comparable, but still dealing with a few growing pains.
