I think it is easy to control. I have broken both of my wrists. Both bad breaks too. I shoot left handed and i recently (6 months ago) had a compound fracture that was through my growth plate. I shoot my Ruger P90 45 acp with no issues.

Default .45 acp

The answer is no. Recoil is just a "mind''set ....all guns recoil .Some slight ,others not so slight ,and some are perceived as violent. It is what it is.Train yourself just not worry about it.If you have a big gun ,if you want to shoot it ,just deal with it.

Yea, imagine my surprise when i realized there were no headlight or windshield wiper switches on that damn thing. and hes right, the radio controls are too small to play with. ARGH! Wheres the Fu#$%ng ashtray?!?!?!



On older G22's, and most typically with reloaded ammo(user error), no current production models has issues. THis is a poor statement


If your gonna try and sell the haterade, have some founded facts.

And thats why they have so many sold in the US
handling them as in renting them and figuring out you dont like them and laying out why is experience. dont need to own a yugo for 25 years to figure out its a junky car...

well features such as a decocking lever or safety in order to render the gun into a safe state. the slide release is barely a stub. glock failed the army adoption tests due to missing features.

ummm no the purpose of the 45gap is to strengthen the case near the head to avoid case blowouts from glock's own information... hardly made up.

flava flav sells oodles of records doesnt mean his stuff is any good.

i stated my opinion and labeled it as such. i would expect you to at least put forth some real arguments rather than bashing. ive got a basis or everything i said my reasoning for disliking the glock products have experience and fact behind it. i dont expect you to or anyone else to like it or agree with it. i put it there for the person asking what others thought of it.

sorry if you take offense.

Only if it has been converted to full-auto

Average male in the 1960's


Average male 1970's


Average male 1980's
