    I HATE Glocks but...

    ...I feel in love with the 19/23/32 model and just ordered a G23. I have been looking for the "perfect" balance between small, light, and compact for an EDC and large enough for enjoyable range time. NOTHING I could afford really fit the bill til I took the chance and actually held a G32. I was about to purchase it but while browsing the Glock Talk forum I found a G23 and got it for $350 shipped.

    I can't believe I did this...gone and fell in love with a Glock.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    I hated them, until I tried them. Now my EDC is a G19.

    I may be changing to a Kahr though.

    I don't hate Glock. I don't see myself ever buying one though.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Well, hate is a four letter word, and a rather strong word at that. Love and hate are opposite. Knowing exactly where you stand now will assist you in defining those two terms to your liking versus their true definitions. Best of luck to you and your new to you Glock. There's hope for everyone. Be safe.

    I find them loathsome but don't hate them. Lots of people are into shooting today because of Glock.

    I hate to tell you this, but you've made a BIG mistake, this won't be your last Glock.

    Although I am a 1911 fan, and carry one much of the time, if I were to start over from zero, I would buy Glocks and not 1911s. Glocks come reliable OTB in almost 100% of cases, while I have never had a 1911 reliable OTB. That includes Kimber, Colt, and Springfield.

    Regards,
    Jerry
