Good job. Right or wrong there are differences.

I actually own something close to each of these six guns. A G27, multiple 1911s, Sig P226, M&P Shield, BHP, and CZ 75b. I'll state with absolute conviction that the Glock grip deviates quite dramatically from the rest.

Look at the back of the grip, where your actual grip starts...and is in turn directed. The swells and voids contribute heavily to the resulting grip angle...it's not just about some line through the middle of the grip that ignores those factors.

Glock's grip is just fine if that's what you spend a great deal of time shooting. I'd certainly find no cause to call it ineffective. But if you spend a great deal of time behind other more traditional designs, it's bound to feel a little awkward.

I'll admit they are diff and if you r used 2 something then diff is allways strange but the simple fact that that angle shouldn't be the only reason y any ones aim is off , glocks are not inaccurate just because the angle , but any 1 who shoots, or is a gun person ,(someone of the firearm lifestyle) should be combat accurate with every pistol they pick up , it's 7-10yards, eather the ability 2 shoot is there or it's not. Not trying 2 be mean or start an argument but that's fact people bash glock over lil differences saying it can't shoot or it's high or low , no that's just the shooter own ability, shoot a revolver , 1911, sig, and glock at that distance with out aiming , point but don't use sights but try 2 group, there is no diff... There is a science 2 the guns but honestly who really knows or worries about 2 deg when there life is on the line...

I wouldn't bash a Glock at all. Personally I'm not a polymer gun guy that's that. Other factors draw my dollars away from the Glock for other reasons as well but not because its not a good firearm. If my funds were endless I would have kept the g19 but I had others on my list that I lust more for over a Glock.

I've never claimed Glocks are inaccurate or even difficult to be accurate with. They're plenty accurate. They're very easy to find your mark with.

The grip and sight picture just require some adjusting if you're accustomed to other firearms. I always have to push that front sight down substantially to get on target when I pick up a Glock. But the darn things find their mark with regularity. Even my shorter barrelled G27 performs like a full-framed gun at the range.

Yep I concur.

If I didn't get jams every mag with my 1911 I would love 2 carry it I'm a more traditional firearm person my self my sig 226 enhanced elite is awesome but I don't wanna carry my prize pistol but I love my modded glock it's my fav pistol I own next 2 my 357 mag 7shot revolver I hit quarters at 40 yards with it 1 day but glocks were diff to get used to but now a glock is my #1 firearm I'll allways carry 1 no matter what... If money was no issue I would carry a sig x5 LW but I don't have $2500 for a pistol ... But what can I say I'm a glock person... I wish I could carry a G17 over my m9 but the army will never accept glock...
