Default New glock owner. Im dissapointed in myself.

After about 500 Rds through my Sig p250 I realized I was probably never going to be as good with the long double action trigger as a DA/SA or striker fired. So I sold it for a fair price and picked up a gen3 G19. I'm happy with the purchase and know it will be reliable for years to come. I just can't help hate myself a little for drinking the kool-aid.

You've been with us since Nov 2012, and you still don't get the hint that you should buy a 1911?

Yes, that. I like my PPQ trigger. I even like my PPK trigger. BUT they are not my 1911 Colt trigger.

You mean advertising? It's all Kool Aid. Pat yourself on the back. You'd never know the 250 wasn't the one if you hadn't tried.

If you like it and you shoot it well, it is the right gun for you. Let go of the self-loathing and go shoot your Glock some more!

I broke down a couple of years ago and bought a G-20C for a duty gun. The self loathing subsides with time.

The words popular and good are not synonyms. That's all I have to say about glocks.

I hate Glocks but only because of "Glock-people," which you are clearly not one.

Also Glocks don't feel comfortable in my hand and they don't point naturally. That's enough for me to never buy one.

However if you really do hate yourself so much you can send the gun to me. I'll take one for the team so you don't have to live with so much self-loathing and regret and despair.

I could beat myself up for getting a Glock 17 years ago.
Instead, I kept it and let people shoot it and compare how bad it's trigger is compared to the 1911.

See. . . Gotta look for the good.
