Glock, Glock, Glock the only complaints youll ever hear from people who dont like them is that they are Ugly and bulky, if they were not one of the absolute best pistols in the world then why does every one and their brother have a spin off of them.

If you like long DAO triggers on your pistols this would be very true.

DOA triggered pistols I can do with out.

THe SIG 2022 DA/SA trigger is much nicer IMO.

The only complaints I have about Glock is I'm not particularly fond of the sights that come on most of them, but I'm warming up to them, and unless it's a gen 4 I have to get an extended magazine release button on them so I can use it without changing my grip dramatically.

1. the trigger is the gun

and thats something that only PLASTIC [polymer] guns can do.

but like i said thanks for the comment
I saw no sarcasm in sweeper22's post, instead it was very helpful and worth a reread. Lots of good advice posted already so I won't bother, since it looks like you've made up your mind.

I think that there's plenty of other things that people don't like about GLOCKS (just off of the top of my head):
  • No external safeties (and no the trigger doesn't count)
  • You have to pull the trigger when breaking down the gun
  • The rear site
  • The don't fit some people's hands very well
  • They're not aimed as naturally as other designs
  • They're too light (increase perceived recoil)
  • They're a "Me-too" gun
  • GLOCK fan-boys
The above is not meant as a bash, simply as a response to the concept that the only knock on GLOCKS is "ugly and bulky".

I agree with everything you said, except the grip. I find that the only Glocks that fit my hand well are the subcompacts, because I actually like there to be a hump on the grip if it's a compact or subcompact firearm.

your right about his post was just in a bad mood after watching the news you know how that is no news is good news so i apologize to sweeper who took his time to help and i know it sounded as if i had made up my mind and it was the front runner for me but i have been seriously researching all suggestions and they have been thought provoking to say the least i would love to purchase a 1911 but everywhere i have looked they are going for around 650-700 so as so if anyone would happen to know of a place that sell's them with minimal dealer mark up i would appreciate the suggestions


i only wish i could afford the kimber ultra covert II talk about a beautiful piece


sorry for lack of punctuation in a hurry

You could check local gunshops and gunshows for a good used Springfield Mil-Spec or GI 1911.
