I have a love hate relationship with my G23 gen4. Is it reliable? Yes. Is it accurate? Yes. Is it Gods gift to earth in the gun world? Hell no.

I was looking for a reliable, accurate gun for CC. I wonted it to be double stack and have the ability to easily change to other calibers. I'm not a huge fan of .40 but I felt I needed one bc the last time there was a run on ammo that's about all I could find. I also wonted a gun that was ugly. I got tired of beating up my other guns. So I wonted something that I would not care if it got scratched or anything. The grip really doesn't bother me. I'm the type of person that can be accurate with just about anything I pick up.
But if for some reason I had to rely on someone who is not use to it in a bad situation (say i got shot and my friend had to pick it up and use it) we might be screwed.

I hate the trigger. It has got to be the worst trigger I have ever felt. The slide stop is to flush. The guide rod just seams to flimsy but has not caused any problems yet. I don't like that you can't shoot cast bullets with out a barrel swap. And the unsupported chamber sucks.

But the thing I hate the most about Glocks are the damn fan boys.

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

You misunderstand greatly.

I love Glocks for the reasons stated, but I hate them for others, and have gotten rid of mine because they outweigh the good.

I never said they are MORE reliable or accurate than everything else. Most guns I've experienced have these attributes, I was simply being supportive. They are great guns of high quality, as are thousands of others.

IMO a persons first handgun should be a .22 revolver or auto. If you can only afford one handgun and you need it to be a cc/hd weapon. Then i would suggest a 9mm or .38 special. You could learn to shoot great with a .357 sig, but as a first gun imo its a good way to develop a flinch.
