    I'll buy my second Glock right after they copy CZ's grip angle.
    Now I'll get out here,before somebody think I hate Glocks.
    Good night everybody.

    It's basically, hand me a gun, I can shoot it. I've had students ask me if I could shoot their gun as well as my own choice of sidearm.

    "does it have a grip, barrel and trigger, yes, I can shoot yours as well as mine". Then proceed to take theirs to prove the point. GOT to have command of the basics. Shooting is one of the easiest skills to acquire.

    Same thing happens to me at my local club where, for reasons unknown to me, I am considered a "good shot". When people (newer shooters?) have difficulty shooting accurately, the RO's send them to me to for help and instruction, if I am there. Sometimes, they are truly amazed at how accurate their gun can be. I can point shoot anything I can pick up, with about 5 minutes of practice. I shoot Glocks and 1911's competitively, no problems switching between the two when I bring and shoot both at the same match.

    Took me an afternoon and 1K rounds to develop the appropriate wrist proprioception when moving from 1911's to the glock/s.

    Glocks aren't my favorite to shoot but with enough rounds through them they've become my second favorite firearm (behind CZ). I have taken to Glocks because they flat out work.

I know all guns are different, triggers, sites, etc and I know if I train with them exclusively I'd be more proficient but it's just weird I can do well with others right off the shelf. Is it the grip angle or what?
    Let me guess... low, and to the left.

    Took me about that many rounds over two range trips to get really comfortable with my 26 after shooting mainly a 226 and a 229. I rarely aim and shoot, I usually keep my eye on the point I want to put a hole in, bring the gun up from the bench, and pull the trigger as soon as the gun is “in position” (for lack of better terminology). I guess it’s point shooting, I figure if I need to use it I’m not going to have time to stand there and make sure all of my body parts are in the “correct” positions and I have the “correct” sight picture-I want to be able to quickly put a hole really close to the point my eyes are focused on.

    I think many people have initial issues with a Glock pistol. IMHO, the trigger leaves a lot to be desired, but it certainly can be mastered. I had a G30 gen 3 that was great out of the box--accurate & easy to shoot. I've also had others that took time to master (for me it was a G23 and G26). I have a G19 gen 4 that was okay new, but not what I wanted. Now at 5k rounds the trigger has smoothed out (it didn't take that long but that is where I am in round count) and it is a very good shooter. Honestly Glocks have a so-so trigger (bad compared to a decent 1911), but rounds fired (ie, practice and familiarity with the gun) and the smoothing of the trigger can make it an accurate pistol; certainly one that will shoot 4" groups at 10 yds. My advice, be patient and keep shooting.

    I agree with that,and that's why I'm using a G19 for "just in case".

    I should add that changing out the trigger really made shooting Glocks much more enjoyable for me. That stupid dingus safety sticking out beyond the front of the trigger must have been designed by a Sadist.
