I'm sure I opened a can of something...

I'm a GLOCK owner and love my GLOCK. Although there ARE other guns I like as well...

I would own and carry a Smith (Wheel Gun), H&K, Ruger, Sig, and Prob a Colt or Springfield 1911.

While I am no way downing ANY other pistol... I have this to say about GLOCKS.

Inexpensive (Not Cheap, that would mean poor quality)
Simple
Accurate (Which any gun would be more accurate then I...)
Durable
Reliable
Lightweight

I used to HATE GLOCKS with a passion... till I fired one... I never thought I'd like, let alone love the Fantastic Plastic...

For the Price, the out of the box performance is hard to beat...

I'd love to own a 1911 someday, but thats when I got an extra $700+ to add to the gun to get it just the way I want it...

So lets have it... Whats your take on GLOCKS...? :bier:

Glocks are a weapon. They are made to shoot extremely well out of the box and be totally reliable. I love Glocks but they aren't the prettiest things!! I'll never sell the two I own but won't sell my pretty ones either!

My take is, I don't have a take. I don't own a Glock but I am warming up to them and the reliability of a Glock speaks for themselves. I wouldn't mind having a baby Glock 30 or maybe a G26 for summer carry with the pinky extention, I just haven't made the plunge yet and I might never make the plunge. I carry 1911's, Kimbers, Colts, customs and just like the look and feel of a 1911 best so that is what I carry and shoot.

Sighting a Glock looks very wide and strange compared to a 1911 for me and for the most part has been what has kept me from getting one. The grip is not a problem for me as I have big hands that are not thick hands and found gripping a Glock works well for me, although I have not shot one yet.

My P.I. buddy has them and swears by them. Like I said the rep that Glock has can not be denied, add the cost in and easy care/break down they are hard to beat.

Although I believe that Glocks are about $100.00 over priced but that is another argument/discussion.

I like Glocks. If you treat your gun like your lawnmower, get a Glock.

Not really my thing.... Between not liking the trigger (I've shot my share of glocks, with a couple glock-heavy range buds! :) ), not liking the grip, wishing there was an external safety, and the whole 'unsupported case' thingy, they probably won't become 'my thing' anytime soon....

My wife and I have three of them. G17, two G26's. I love them all. I like nice, well made things that function as designed. I don't want, or know how, to "tinker" with guns. I don't want to be a gunsmith. I want to shoot. I want to spend my time and money shooting, not tinkering and upgrading. Ergo, no 1911 :rolleyes: <sigh>. I got them because of their:

Relatively cost
Simplicity
Accuracy
Durability
Reliability
Relative weight
Relative capacities

I learned to shoot with Glocks, so the funky angle, grip, and sight picture look "right" to me. LOL. All 9mm's cause its cheap to shoota a lot and with the right load, a good SD tool.

No soul? Agreed. :smile: I really can't "see" a gun with "soul" anyway....sorry folks (nothing intended - some antiques, definitely yes)....A thing of beauty? Nope. An F-16 isn't either, but darn...it'd be fun! A Huey too. :image035: :danceban: :banana:

This is a thing of beauty...!!!!! http://www.combatcarry.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=11670

Again, it just goes back to me. I love nice tools (Glocks, trucks, computers, hand tools, etc.) , take great care of them, and expect everything from them. If they fail, they're gone, or on a real "short leash". :mad:

Just a totally personal deal - just like I believe it is for everyone here that loves 1911, BHP's, Sigs, Beretta's, you name it. :wave: Makes this a real interesting place! :congrats: I love hearing about others' new guns, whatever they are, seeing the pictures, hearing the stories, and learning a lot. :banana: :danceban: :banana: Even if I shoot Glocks.:smile:

As most here know they are what I trust my families and my life with. I have two of them and both have gone boom every time I have pulled the trigger. What more can we want from a weapon?

I just sold my GLOCK 26. I loved it but I needed money to buy a SIG 220 and the GLOCKs place will be taken over my a Kahr PM40. GLOCKs are fine weapons, especially for the military and law enforcement. Why, because there are inexpensive, reliable, accurate, and teaching someone new to guns how to use a GLOCK is relatively easy and quick.

I would buy one again in a heartbeat, however I have too many other guns I want more for now.

Glock 9MMs thumbs up, rest, thumbs down.

Almost all of Glocks problems have been with guns in calibers other than 9MM. I consider the Glock 19 the pick of the litter.

The Glocks with which I have had experience were accurate and reliable.

Their triggers scare me to death, though, when coupled with the lack of an external, active safety. And their grips are way to big for my hands (my 12-year old daughter has bigger hands than I; the first time I demonstrated that fact to her she freaked out, but now she thinks it's kind of cool).

Glocks are great, but they're not for me.

I find that they are totally safe based on their simplicity. It goes against popular belief....but I think Glocks are great guns to START with. My rational is that they are based around the basic rules of firearms---point in a safe direction ALWAYS, keep finger off trigger until ready to fire. Also, the company is INNOVATIVE!!!! Look at what we have because of Glock design; Kahr, double action Taurus, on and on...

Other than the plastic sights, grip angle and poor take down lever(trigger) it is a great gun.
