    I prefer my Kimber Ultra...I like my 1911...I always thought (stiill do) that Glocks felt and looked like bricks...
    Until I picked up the G-36...now I like my Ultra and my G-36...shared EDC...the Ultra a 'hair' more...

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    Call me crazy, I love the heck out of my tupperware. Very utilitarian, in my humble opinion. Just what you might expect from a bunch of German engineers.
    Gun Control means never having to say "I missed you."

    - Glock 27 (.40)
    - Kel-Tec p3at (.380)
    - Beretta 96FS (.40)
    - Smith & Wesson 5906 (9mm)

    Nothing really wrong with Glocks. I have found em accurate all all get out, I just prefer other pistols more.

    Being someone that has disparaged the Glock (even though I have admitted it is well made and it doesn't work for me and I never fault anyone that likes them) I believe that there are times where swallowing my pride and admitting where a company is doing their part to protect our constitution...even if I don't like their pistols.

    They can count me as one of their successful NRA recruits.. I used the little $10.00 off coupon they included with my G23 when I joined.

    Actually, HK was making combat tupperware a decade before Glock did.

    Hm, I thought he was referring to the simplicity of the design, not just the polymer frame...sorry...

    My only complaint with Glock is that my hand seems to have been designed for a 1911.

    I have a relatively wide hand with short stubby fingers.

    The Glock doesn't feel nearly as good in my hand as a 1911.

    On the other hand, us 1911 users get real good at clearing malfunctions. Glock guys don't since they never have 'em.

    So . . . . . there!

    Time spent debating the issue is time better spent training with whatever hand gun brand one decides to carry....

    This level of discourse is best left to other "forums" IMO...

    LOL at the armorer pics above

    I guess I'm digressing in maturity RR, I started out with my HK USP45 in 1998, and just got my Glock last year! LOL

    but I'll "redeem" myself soon, next on my list is a Springfield or Kimber 1911
