I don't. I believe they are good guns, I've handled and shot a few, but they're just so ugly. I know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!:rolleyes:

welcome to the club


if it's not a 1911, it wants to be when it grows up, unless it's a Sig.

Like glock?
Yep, you are the ONLY ONE! (Sarcasm)

I own a G26, and think it is the ideal platform for concealed EDC.

I think after this I am going to start a thread titled : "Am I the Only One Who Doesn't Like 1911's?"

Am i the only one who doesn't....

Nope. You're a member of the seemingly increasing crowd now just starting to emerge from the closet. It won't be long until we see some 'I Hate Glock' bumper stickers. That is of course for those who don't hate bumper stickers. This subject has come up an awful lot recently.....right here in the forum. I don't know how the mods here look at threads like this, but if it were me, I might start my own "I hate threads who's subject is: 'I hate Glocks'" How would that grab ya?
You know.......the funny thing is......all of the Glock lovers I know don't seem to go around the internet and forums posting about what brand name firearms we don't like. Personally, I like them all. If you gave me an XD for free, I'd take it in a heartbeat. Then turn around and sell it to someone who likes them. We all have free will, and I'll give you one more opinion of mine. Threads like this are junk...spam.....worthless. How's about posting what you love about your most favorite brand of firearm instead of spreading negativity on the internet? Have a good day.

If it shoots bullets, I probably love it. I'm not a fan of glock, and don't prefer them. I'm a Sig guy, but I don't hate glock.

I can't argue with Glock's infamous reliability - it started it all. They are economical, reliable, and simple to use. What else do you need?

I prefer the grip angle of my XD and its safety features, but I'd definitely buy a Glock 30 for a smaller carry option.

I suppose it all depends on what you are used to. For me, I've already gotten a lot of practice in with an XD and bought a holster for it. But, if I saw a great deal on a Glock, I'd consider switching to it.

No, you're not the only one. I don't like them, either. My only reason, however, is the grip angle. I don't care what they look like. I like that they have an increased capacity. From what I've read and heard from those who have owned them, they are reliable as heck. It's just that whenever I've held one and naturally pointed it, the sights are way high. Whenever I hold a 1911, SIG, HK, XD, or S&W the sights are dead on.

Nope, you're not.
Now there is nothing wrong with a Glock(or anything else you might like), they just don't work for me.
The grip size and angle is all wrong for my hand, and I can't shoot very well with them.

You are not alone guy. There are tons of people who love them and tons who hate them. I fall in the middle. I love the simplicity of them, the ruggedness and the low bore axis. But, the grip doesn't fit my hand well and the grip angle just makes the gun point high for me.

I still own one for now and I may keep it, but there are lots of guns out there that fit my hand way better.

I dont hate them, I LOVE them.

Have only owned a few handguns, and the Glock was the most reliable and comfortable shooting weapon I have ever had.

I think Glocks are very ugly but the simplicity and reliability just cant be beat. For the record I think that revolvers are the most attractive handguns followed by custom 1911's and stainless Sigs and Kimbers. If I had unlimited funds I would own several handguns from 9mm up to S&W500

I always thought Glocks looked and felt like bricks, until I picked up the Glock-36 (single stack .45 caliber)...now my G-36 has replaced my two Kimbers as my lone ECD.
Dependability is the key for me.:yup:

If we ALL liked Glock, there wouldn't be enough Glocks to go around.:smoke23:

Don't hate them absolutely but Glock would go out of business depending on me to purchase one. I'm grateful I'm not required to own a Glock.

I have been shooting handguns for around 35 years and own around 30 handguns currently, many different makes, types and models, both semi's and revolvers. Up to a few momths ago I felt the same way about Glocks. I had handled and shot Glocks many times before but for some reason (maybe a mental block or the grip angle) never really cared for them. But a few months ago, just for the heck of it I went ahead and purchased a G19 and after spending quality time with the Glock I now truly appreciate them for what they are; solid, reliable and simple to own and operate. I have since purchased a G26 and carry it often. Buy one and give the Glock a try. Someone will buy it from you if you still do not care for them after you give it a good workout. I still like shooting my 1911's, CZ's and Hi Powers more but Glocks are a fine CCW weapon for sure. And I must admit, if I had to bug out and could only have one handgun, the G19 looks real good. You tend to like them more when they are yours.....kind of like kids!
