    Call it what you will. The hump, the grip angle, the distinctive feel, whatever. Glocks are unique. This includes how they shoot. I've owned a bunch. Make no mistake, they are simply outstanding firearms. But if you aren't used to them, you'll have a time of it until you are. And then they'll sing for you.

    Keep shooting it. Its yours now, and you've shot it, so you'll take a bath if you dump it. But if you keep shooting it, you'll click with it soon enough.

    And then you'll sing praises like all of the other Glock guys.

    And don't trick it out. Set it up with sights, but don't go trying to jock up the trigger. Leave it be, put in your time, and master it stock.
    Every bit of this is true.

    Other than shooting your Glock, the best thing that you can do to get better at shooting your glock is to put a couple thousand rounds through a DAO revolver.

    I just borrowed a Gen1 G17 from a guy at the range. He's put thousands of rounds through it and it did feel 'broken in' smooth compared to my Gen4 G19. That G17 was awesome to shoot--dead on at 50 yards with steel targets--couldn't miss accurate. I was seriously impressed and a little jealous. But maybe I just need to shoot the G19 a bit more.

    Try some different ammo!

    Never had a problem with my G23, but my Kahr CW9 shoots the Wally-World Winchester econo-packs in patterns, not groups. Feed it better stuff (like American Eagle) or my reloads, and accuracy is dramatically better.

All I do is polish the internals by hand. And even that is not necessary.
    Creeping through a wall?!!! If that's the characteristics of the trigger than I know I can do without it for that sounds wretched.

    Not sure about "creeping through a wall" being accurate for all Glock triggers. I have a 2012 model G19 and the trigger is nothing like that. It has very little take up to a wall, then a crisp break and typical Glock reset.

    Hate to be that guy, but it isn't the gun that is broken.

    I've had issues with accuracy if the wrong size backstrap is installed. When I got my first Glock, I just threw the large backstrap on because it felt the best in my hand. When my shooting was awful, I decided to pull the backstrap off and my groups immediately shrunk.

    I do believe God is answering my prayers to be less reactive and more considerate when I post.

    If your like me I shoot Glocks different than any other pistol that I own. I like all metal guns that have some weight to them. I ain't no sissy boy that whines about weight. I prefer Sig's over any other pistol made today. When I bought my first Glock, a Gen 3 19, the groups were not tight at all and rounds were ejecting on my forehead, down my shirt, I wasn't happy at all. I totally disagree that Glock don't have a break in period, they do. After 200 rounds or so the rounds were ejecting at 9 o'clock where they should. I also adjusted my grip so the trigger finger on my left hand grabbed the front of the trigger guard, it isn't smooth for a reason. This helped control muzzle flip big time and the groups tightened up quite a bit. I am still far more accurate with my 228's and 229, but I have no issues putting the rounds where they count at 25 yards. I didn't read this whole thread so take from all this what you will.
