I can only hope that you are joking...

It was just a few years ago that all one could hear when there was talk about handguns was , "Glock, Glock, Glock". I have noticed that there isn't a lot of talk about Glocks now. What has happened? Is the honeymoon with Glocks over?

NOTE: To anyone looking for a Concealed Carry Weapon,
  • You want a 9mm CCW with follow-up capability superior to all? (Gun weight is your friend....GO STEEL!)
  • You want a 9mm CCW you can carry in Condition 1? (That heartbeat needed to chamber a round may be your last!)
  • You want a 9mm CCW you can trust your life to?
  • You want a CCW with longevity/reliability/respect that is only exceeded by the storied 1911?
  • You want a CCW with with John Moses Browning genes? (The man that understood and designed with ergonomics before they coined the term!)
Then look no further than the Browning Hi-Power.


"However its a decent reliable gun if you dont mind the square grip and mag safety and low for a 9mm capacity."
O RLY?

Jon, you think the BHP has a square grip?



Hiding the "self-pointing" 1911.



The "feels natural in my hand" 1911 hiding the "square grip" BHP.

They look very similar. I wonder why?

** clears throat ** - John Browning - ** clears throat **


"However its a decent reliable gun if you dont mind the square grip and mag safety and low for a 9mm capacity."
What mag safety? Fortunately it is simple to remove.



"However its a decent reliable gun if you dont mind the square grip and mag safety and low for a 9mm capacity."


15+1=16 How many do you need Jon?

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!

Not for me pal. I spent about 10 years blindly hating Glocks mainly because I thought they were ugly and I was into cool looking guns (1911's, large revolvers & etc), then I hit 30 and my vanity turned to versatility and reliability. Getting my cwp helped in my taste change I suppose. That was about 3 yrs ago, when I got a G19 and put a guiderod laser in it along with a really good light (and LH holsters for ccw with and without light) and lots of range time. Last week I got a G23 with nite sites, 6 mags and because of identical dementions it fits both of my IWB holsters. Next, probably a .357sig barrel for my G23. One day I'll get over Glock enough to spend money on other guns but til then I'm trickin' out these bad boys all I can. I do own a couple of Taurus's and I sometimes cheat on my Glocks with them (just not that often).
