    Everything is plastic these days, that car outside - probably runs a similar ratio of plastic to metal as a Glock.
    Plastic panels, plastic interior, plastic hood even. We had a $40,000 Volvo S80T6 a few cars ago, plastic hood...

    So I'm fine with plastic guns, as long as they work and the price is right then why not?

    Go ahead and laugh. But while you have to spend time cleaning your 1911 after a day at the range, all I have to do is throw my Glock in the dishwasher.

    Good one. I remember the Beach Police in Daytona Beach FL had the same attitude back in the early 90s. That is why they each went through a Glock a season. The suckers were rusted and jammed shut from the salt air and fine beach sand. God forbid anyone due normal maintenance on a Glock...

    In my own experiences with many different makes of handguns, Glocks just seem to have the best weight, caliber choice and capacity ratio of almost any pistol out there. To each his own.

    I nearly despise the " G" gun for my own use . I will recommend them for others , since i figure they are nearly indestructible , reliable , and for the most part safe . Once a shooter matures they can move up to a " real pistol " you know LOL .

    It's fun to take a jab at the Glocks every once in a while but, they are beautifully engineered handguns and are always ultra-reliable and dependable.
