Personally i love a good glock. But thats a problem i have never heard of before. And its funny but every glock i have fired has worked flawlessly, and been as accurate as i was.

The thing is, that not everybody likes the trigger on a Glock and Glock type pistol.

Lots of people swear on the Berreta F92. I tried it a few times and find the grip to big for my hands.
Now I havn`t tried a Ruger, except for a MK II, but the grip looks kind of big. Similar to the Sig P226 or Berreta.

Nice thing about the CZ75 Series is the amount of models you can choose from.
You find anything from a high performance competition naildriver, over open carry duty side arm to nicely concealable compact pistols.
The grip size on a CZ75 is very nice, as also people with small and mdeium hands can nicely operate the CZ.
You can find tons of stuff to tune the firearm and customize it for your personal needs and demands.
I think only the 1911 plattform can offer such a similar or better choice of customisation. Grips, sights, triggers, trigger systems, decocker and ambidextrous usage.

Run a search on youtube for some clips on the cz75 and the other models. I think you will be very surprised what you will find.

I used to hate Glocks too. Until I got a used 17 and beat it up for a while. It really grew on me. Then came the 19 and a 21. I've never had a reliability issue with any of them. My 26 choked on some of my handloads that I made too light, but that's the only problem I've had which was my own fault.

Other than that they are kind of boring. But reliability has not been a problem I've seen with mine or those from other friend's Glocks. My Beretta and Sig have also been reliable. But they aren't as easy to conceal as the 19.

I'm no Glock fanboy but there isn't a more reliable handgun made. They flat out work. Sure there may be a lemon here and there but they are mass produced so that's to be expected. I love my CZ P07 but if you are a new shooter Glock is the way to go.

I don't think the glock safety is for new shooters.

Jkustomz28, I never had an issue with my Glock. As I said, it's a Gen2, I wanted a pre-ban as I live in Ma. and wanted to carry more than 10rds in my pistol. The Glock was well used when purchased and was most likely turned in from a LEO, although I can't confirm this. I can't imagine how many rounds were sent down range in the pistols past but it continues to function without a hiccup.

It's about a simple as it gets. Keep your booger hook off the bang switch until you are ready to shoot. Kind of like a double action revolver.

Double action requires a longer, more deliberate pull.

Agree- new inexperienced shooters seem to love to fondle triggers
