Try the 1911 platform picked my first one up a few months ago and now am a believer and carry it every day as my ccw there not for everybody but it's worth checking out if your not as mechanically inclined as other try the baretta first fires a lot like my 1911 just a lot easier to break down

I loathe GLOCK. I hate the way it feels in my hand, I hate the grip angle, and quite frankly I'm scared the damn thing will go off or blow up if I look at it wrong. That's because of first hand accounts I've gotten from (previous) owners, and because it just don't feel safe to me, and I carried a revolver for several years that operated the same way, no safety, pull the damn bang switch.

But, WTS, it works, I'm accurate with it, is easy to break down and maintain, and I THINK the original 17 that was made famous via outrageous torture testing is still alive and kicking somewhere.

I'll get one someday. There are other guns much higher on my "must have" list though. In fact, GLOCK is near the bottom, right above hi point. Hi point is at the bottom.

As far as I can tell the only real con with glock is they're ugly.

Wow lol what a strong statement. I respect it tho. I saw the test and have seen the 18 in you tube fire flawlessly. Its hard for me because i grew up with glocks but i like to know how everyone feels

I love my glocks. It fits great, it shoots where I point and it ALWAYS functions. I would like to see personally a glock that has gone off with no manipulation of the trigger. They don't. I have carried mine loaded on duty 24/7 for five years. In fact 40 of us have. When not hot on our person they are stored hot in a locker. Never once has there been an ad in over 20 years my unit has been in operation. Our armorer did testing trying to get a glock to ad. It just doesn't happen on a functioning maintained glock.

They DO work, no one will ever hear me disagree with that. My personal experience says "if you pull the trigger, it WILL go bang"

I won't disagree on that. I do feel like they are a little too easy to accidentally manipulate the trigger. I don't see it as a GLOCK issue solely, it's also the same thing I don't like about my parent's M&P's.

Any good quality handgun will be dependable as long as it is taken care of. My 1911 fires every time
