i don't think his butt needs powdering. he simply asked a question and was looking for a simple reply. i read the post he put up and then read your reply to it. IMO, your comments were rude and uncalled for.

let me explain something here to you. there are a lot of newbs that come on this forum looking for advice and information. some might be new to guns in general, some new to a different type of gun. this forum is about sharing information. comments like yours does no good to anyone wanting to learn. might want to curb some of the attitude a little bit. personally, i think you owe him an apology for the remark, but that's just me. the amount of your character really hinges on you next reply on this thread.

Oh, CZ makes some excellent guns too. CZ-75 is used throughout Europe.

Baretta 92 has survived a lot of modern wars to include the desert.

Oh, Browning Hi-Power is known for it's ruggedness even in the jungles of Vietnam. I know vets who carried them during that time period.

Colt 1911 .45 ACP during WW 2 was made to survive jungles and European climates. It was made with loose parts so that objects would not be caught in the machinary of the gun.

OK, six.

I could go on......
Sorry to correct your Teutonicness, but the USP was NOT the original plymer pistol although the first was indeed made by HK

Look, I love my Glock. My dad owns three and trusts his life to it every day (LEO) but to think they are the be all end all is crazy. If you watch hand gun magazine, they put a M&P Shield through a ten episode torture test in which they froze it, left it in mud, buried in sand, drug it down a gravel road behind a truck and twice put 1000 rounds through stopping only to switch mags. The gun never once failed to fire once it was made safe.

very well said. i am pretty sure there are many modern pistols that probably could do the same as well.

i have nothing against a Glock, but for me i have found other pistols that fit my hand better. if a Glock came up for sale at the right price, i am pretty sure i would possibly buy it. i just have no emotional attachment to polymer pistols, and that includes my SA XDm40, which i do like and i do shoot well with. now my 1911's, Hell will freeze over before i sell them!

Why? There's more to handgun choices than the amount of abuse it can take. Any gun that has been adopted as a service pistol (CZ, Sig, Beretta, H&K, S&W, Etc.) will very likely take way more abuse than even the most ignorant third world draftee would likely give it. The whole "I can drive an Abrams tank over a Glock, feed it to a Hippo, afterwards dig it out of the pile, then toss it into the ocean for 10 years and it will still fire when I fish it out." sounds really nifty until you realize it really is quite a useless bit of info. If you keep it in your holster better, that sort of durability wouldn't really be necessary, now would it? FYI, Hi Points can take an ungodly amount of abuse too. What lesson should we draw from that?
BUT, what if this happens!! I can see where the situation may came that a glock in Africa gets ran over by a tank, a pack of hippos eats my arm off with my glock, I then hunt the hippo with my pocket knife and dig said "glock" out of it, go get a drink in the ocean and fall in, spend 10 years searching for it, find it, unfreeze the bad guy, and BOOM!!!

Should that come to pass, I will owe you at least one beer. Additionally, make sure you get pics.

Hippos kill more people than all of Africa's Big 5 combined. Nothing, except man will take on a healthy, adult hippo. If you survive an encounter, I'll chip in for that bar tab. You'll need it after you see the hospital's bill.

There are many reasons why I tend to buy certain brand name guns, first it has to meet my need, is reliable and affordable. With that said there are hundreds of guns that meet my criteria but not all manufacturers provide adequate customer support to the buyers of their guns. I owned several guns in the past that were produced by a company that never admitted to any fault of their weapon and in most cases blame the ammo that was being used. Glock is one of those companies.

Case in point, Gock is presently experiencing a striker problem and when reported to Glock and without investigation it was immediately blamed on the ammo being used. When in fact it is most likely the material being used for the striker.

This all came to screeching halt when the Palm Beach County Sheriffs department experienced a very large number of service weapon failures, and only then did Glock send a representative to address the issue.
