Getting a second Glock opened my eyes to another realm. I have one range bag for all my Glock stuff. Fun collecting and shooting the various calibers and frame sizes.
Dude, I love glock. I have two. I have nothing against them. Obviously. Orhwrwise I'd sell them both but no way would I ever get rid of them.

I just want to try something new.
A new slide, barrel, frame or whatever will still be a glock.

I'm even sure I'll still add to my glock collection later on but for now something different

Walther PPQ. Nicest trigger of all the polymers. there is a 5" if you have the need. Finest polymer out there. I have Glocks, XD, Sig and shot an M&P core. I'd compare it to an HK. What a nice gun!

+1 on the SA XD/XDm series.
Wild card: CZ P07 / P09 or SP-01 Phantom.

IMO, there are lots of choices for a quality polymer pistol and picking one will more than likely come down to personal preference.

another consideration is what is the intended purpose of this pistol? range use? competition? SD/HD? carry? choosing a compact or sub-compact in some calibers will not be as enjoyable to shoot as the same caliber in the full size version.

some models of the polymer pistols have changeable back straps to help customize the fit of the pistol to your hand. i find this to be a desireable feature, as it can allow the pistol to fit more than one person.

some of the models also have ported barrels and slides. while very effective at helping control recoil during competition type shooting, not so good for SD/HD uses because of the muzzle blast.

one of the best advantages of the polymer pistols is, weight to ammo capacity ratio. most have great ammo capacity, even in the larger calibers. compared to many of the steel framed models of pistols, i find this to be a very desireable feature of the polymer pistols.

most of the brands of polymer pistols have been on the market long enough now, that most are proven performers and choosing one will come down to minor details and personal preference. most have been out here long enough, that it very unlikely to find one that's bad.

Second the HKUSP and SAxdm. Love them both.

Anything but a Glock for me

Default Another vote for Ruger's P95 !!!

I agree with my man John Deer... The Ruger P series is the best polymer pistol I have ever shot or owned. The safety and mag release are ambidextrous and the porting is excellent... so a Southpaw will also have no problem using it... eats any ammo I feed through it... Ruger's customer service is beyond excellent... AND it will run you $100-$150 LESS than a comparable model.

Plus the P95 in 9mm means you have 15+1 friends ready to party should you need them... More if you load and carry the extra mag!!
...Gives me warm fuzzies just thinking about it!!!

If Walther made a ppq in 45 I'd be all over that
