    I just sold my GLOCK 26. I loved it but I needed money to buy a SIG 220 and the GLOCKs place will be taken over my a Kahr PM40. GLOCKs are fine weapons, especially for the military and law enforcement. Why, because there are inexpensive, reliable, accurate, and teaching someone new to guns how to use a GLOCK is relatively easy and quick.

    I would buy one again in a heartbeat, however I have too many other guns I want more for now.

    Glock 9MMs thumbs up, rest, thumbs down.

    Almost all of Glocks problems have been with guns in calibers other than 9MM. I consider the Glock 19 the pick of the litter.

    The Glocks with which I have had experience were accurate and reliable.

    Their triggers scare me to death, though, when coupled with the lack of an external, active safety. And their grips are way to big for my hands (my 12-year old daughter has bigger hands than I; the first time I demonstrated that fact to her she freaked out, but now she thinks it's kind of cool).

    Glocks are great, but they're not for me.

    I find that they are totally safe based on their simplicity. It goes against popular belief....but I think Glocks are great guns to START with. My rational is that they are based around the basic rules of firearms---point in a safe direction ALWAYS, keep finger off trigger until ready to fire. Also, the company is INNOVATIVE!!!! Look at what we have because of Glock design; Kahr, double action Taurus, on and on...

    Other than the plastic sights, grip angle and poor take down lever(trigger) it is a great gun.

    Personaly, I'm an XD guy. The only thing I don't like about Glock's is the grip angle. I don't hate it, it just feel funny to me. While I don't own a Glock at the present time I may in the future.

    i feel the same way. i hate the grip angle on my glocks, but i love their reliability and their functional simplicity. i can strip my glocks, clean/lube them 100% per glock recommendations, reassemble and load them in less time than it takes to field strip my 1911s. seriously. if youve never field stripped a glock, try it once.

    i carry 1911s when im not working, but when working (or doing anything "aggressive" that could damage the finish on my 1911s) i carry my glock 31. i know that its going to work "no matter what".

    When I was looking around for my first handgun I was hell bent to get a Glock. I handled as many as I could, but after I rented one I was thinking about for my CCW and I hated it way it felt when shooting (Glock 33). The grip was catching / impacting on the first thumb knuckle of my hand. Turns out Glocks weren't for me so I went with a Warthog instead. Even for a rental that probably only sees decent cleaning once in a blue moon it went bang every time I wanted it to just uncomfortable in my hands. Always try before you buy if possible.

    I have more than one and love them all. I do have other brands and love them as well. I must say though that Glock is my brand hands down.

    I enjoy Glocks, some more than others though. I've had quite a few and found the accuracy to be very inconsistant. Some have been real tack drivers and others wouldn't do better than 4" at 15 yards.
    In my opinion it's the barrels. For example, using my G21, a soda can was pretty safe at 20 yards with the factory barrel. After installing a KKM match barrel I can send cans to oblivion past 30 yards.
    But with my G30 which is a shorter factory barrel, I could hit cans at 20 yds easily.

    I have a Model 22, which is a 40 cal. glock. At the 25 yard range
    a bleach bottle isn't safe. I wander over to the skeet range and
    pick up the spent clays, some are in real good shape, mostly
    yellow/green and orange. At 25 yards it takes a little practice
    but yu can hit these. Its been reliable, reasonably accurate,
    easy to disassemble, (easier the my S&W 4513) and easy to clean.

    I bought this remanfactured piece from a local gun shop with a
    full lifetime warranty. You would be hard pressed to tell the difference
    between a new one and this one. I thought it was a good deal with
    3 mags and a box.

    i have a G37, G30, G33, G32...
    have used them all for carry at some point....
    still do occasionally...
    however prefer Sigs and 1911s as primary choice....
    if I am working on a car or similar activity, carry the G30 or G33 'cause I will be getting them dirty and scratched up....

    ....and I can have them field stripped in 7 seconds (if my nails are short) ;o)
