You can't miss fast enough to win a gun fight.

The 40 Slow and Weak, or as I call it, the 10mm Lite was the FBI's answer to a non-existent problem.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

You make an informed decision on choosing a pistol by experience, not by reading fan-boy testimonials on the interwebz.

And what's not to like about Glocks?? If they're good enough for 65 percent of law enforcement officers in the country, why not CCW and HD/SD

Just wish we could get the rest of the country to stop worshipping the FBi long enough to realize that.

Yep, the FBI does enough self-worship to cover all of us.
Especially ol' J Edgar Hooker - er - Hooter - er - Hoover loved the way he looked in women's clothes.
Whoops, he didn't carry a .40. Maybe a .45, if it matched his purse and high-heels.

Not a fan of the grip angle. Not to hijack this thread, but the reports about how Glock marketed their product to LEO agencies were the genesis of my "fanboi" critique.

Even more canebrake oversights!

Let me restate my assertion;

The intelligent shooter makes an informed decision on choosing a pistol by experience, not by reading fan-boy testimonials on the interwebz...or, the contract subsidizing by Gaston, and the procurement (non)logic of the government "low bid" process selecting mission-critical items.
