Name 5 other handguns that can take the punishment of a Glock . the only other one might be a Sig.

That depends on what you mean by punishment. The only punishment I give my handgun is shooting it.

HK USP. The original polymer gun. Been used by police and military around the world. Oh, and my Sig P226. Both have better quality materials and excellent German engineering.

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......

reliable pistols? i think the list for unreliable pistols would be shorter and easier to list!

most modern pistols are very reliable. in regards to the Glock, it's rather ho-hum to me and boring. it goes bang everytime the trigger is pulled. nothing fancy or amazing, it just does the job it's designed to do. but most modern pistols could be classified the same way, they do the job they were designed to do. heck, even a Hi-Point does it's job.

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?

No firearm is obsolete, they all remain part of the firearm history and legacy.

damn right! there are still people shooting blackpowder muzzleloaders and flintlocks these days. my motto is when it comes to guns, if you enjoy shooting it, then shoot it to your hearts content!

a bad day at the range is still better than a good day at work!
