It really depends on what you are using it for.

They are grate for EDC if you don't mind not having an external safety.

If your going to reload or shoot cast bullets a aftermarket barrel is a must.

I am no fan of Glock because to me they are just not comfortable. That is not to say Glock isn't a good gun.

But... isn't the Glock 31 chambered for 357 Sig? That's a pretty expensive round. I would recommend a 9mm for a first gun over the 357 Sig.

Not personally a glock fan. They tend to shoot low and to the left for me and i prefer to have an external safety. They have become a name brand and name brands tend to slack off on quality. Reliable guns but if your looking for a tack driver look somewhere else

kiabe1 : The fault is not in our Glocks but in ourselves . I bet you are letting the Glock trigger induce flinch or trigger jerking . Try the drill in this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KnBDIbgbMk

Glocks don't forgive human error. Keep it in a holster and get trained so your finger is straight along the frame unless firing .

Your last statement in itself shows Glock is not a good first gun. I see students having more problems with Glock then any other Gun.
1. Limp wristing causing FTF
2. Brass I'm face
3. Shooting low and to the left
4. Flinching and anticipating-light polymer
5. Trust issues with the trigger-Some treat the gun like they are walking on rice paper.
6. I also love it when I never see their Glock again-They have a new gun:
7. These issues are fixable with a little extra one on one time, but I see the frustration/disappointment.
8. People start asks me if they can shoot my 226 instead
9. Glocks do not do so well in sales in Germany. There are way better guns.
10. I owned a G 17 in the early 80s, I traded it soon after. Was it for the Colt Mark IV model 80? I do it remember. No regrets even though paying extra on the trade.
To the OP, I hope the gun works out for you. Train hard on your skills and know your gun. Glock may be the right choice for you. Enjoy and good luck.

My 23 fits me well and I have never failed to qualify with it. It is "more accurate than I am" to quote a famous you tube shooter... When I do put the time to it I can hit anything I aim at.

I dont own one but every time I have shot one it has gone bang every time I pulled the trigger. Even the rental guns at my local range that are never cleaned. I do not really like them but many people do. I like a single action trigger and a 1911 grip angle but that is what I like. It is up to you to decide what you like to shoot.

I'd heavily recommend getting a 9, 40, or 45 first before 357. As for the guy with the 226 post, Every Sig I have ever fired has FTF issues so I wont carry them. They do shoot very nice though (when they work)

They are great, not just good, but great guns! Quality Inn every sense. I highly recommend Glock brand handguns.
I echo your every word. I wouldn't trade my G-22 for anything.
