    Just purchased a GLOCK

    I am a revolver and 1911 guy. But since I like to collect I decided to make a new purchase. Seems to me many of you love your Glocks and many don't. So I decided to purchase one. I found a gen 3 model 19 for cheap. I went the used route so I did not spend much money. I fits my hand really nice and I like the size.

    what is your opinion?

    DAO = SUCK.

    But, really, they're great guns. Quite probably the best for the price. Shot a few different Glocks, and they are pretty good point and shoot guns, but I still don't like DAO guns.

    It really doesn't matter what others "think", it is what YOU like that counts.

    I'm not a Glock fan but if a one of them does the trick then go for it. I have fired a Glock 9mm that my LEO buddy uses as his back up and it wasn't too bad. Even though I'm not a Glock-nut, I would own one if the price were right.

    I hope your Glock gives you years of good service.

    Somehow I never thought of the Glock as a DAO gun. By DAO, I assume you mean "Double Action Only?" I'm pretty sure the trigger is single action. Racking the slide will cock the hammer, the trigger just releases it. If anything, I'd say it is single-action only. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Variety is the spice of life ...... Tell us what you think of it after you shoot it a few times. I have several handguns, 2 being glocks, and that is the one I keep at home for my HD handgun, with nightsights, a nice laser light / strobe combo, there is one thing for sure, I NEVER have a doubt that when I pull the trigger I am going to get a bang.....and a bang.....and a bang .......

    Negative,
    Glock I believe considers there gun "Safe Action". In a safe action pistol I do not believe the gun is cocked or uncocked

    From Glocks Website

    The “Safe Action” system is a partly tensioned firing pin lock, which is moved further back by the trigger bar when the trigger is pulled.

    When the trigger is pulled, 3 safety features are automatically deactivated one after another. When doing so, the trigger bar is deflected downward by the connector and the firing pin is released under full load. When the trigger is released, all three safety features re-engage and the GLOCK pistol is automatically secured again.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigger_(firearms)

    Pre-set (striker or hammer)Pre-set strikers and hammers apply only to semi-automatic handguns. Upon firing a cartridge or loading the chamber, the hammer or striker will rest in a partially cocked position. The trigger serves the function of completing the cocking cycle and then releasing the striker or hammer. While technically two actions, it differs from a double-action trigger in that the trigger is not capable of fully cocking the striker or hammer. It differs from single action in that if the striker or hammer were to release, it would generally not be capable of igniting the primer.

    I've read that before, but the fact that the trigger performs two functions instead of just one, and there is no way to fully cock the weapon WITHOUT pulling the trigger leads me to think that DAO is the closest classification you can get. It definitely isn't DA/SA, or SAO.

    Might be a little out-dated, but I think about it in terms of a revolver- you can cock it (single action), just squeeze the trigger (DA) or any combination of the two (DA/SA). Unless you have a 'hammerless' or reproduction single action revolver.

    Whatever you want to call it the effect is DAO to me. That being said, the OP who as a revolver guy will probably appreciate the revolver like simplicity and reliability of the Glock 19 and if he's carried and practiced with a revolver for self defense situations he won't find the Glock difficult to adjust to. If he wants to carry a semi auto for personal protection the Glock 19 is a great choice in my humble opinion.
