Default ??bash??

Why does everyone always bash Glocks? They are a great manufacturer and a well built firearm(i own 2 of them). I get the plastic vs steel deal but every time someone mentions polymer guns, people are always knockin' the Glocks. Why? There are plenty more polymer guns than glock to bash on.

Why does everybody bash McDonald's when having a fast food debate? Glock was the first plastic handgun to go mainstream and sell like crazy, thus being the standard by all others are judged. Some are better, some are worse, which is all subjective(not starting an argument). They are generally reliable, quality firearms, but I don't like them because they don't feel right.

ditto. if its popular, regular, familiar, trendy, you seem cooler if you hate on it.

I like how they feel I'm not big on plastic, If they where made completely out of metal, had external safety's, no trigger safety I would buy one. I don't really "hate" them per say I just don't like them for me.

Some people don't like the grip angle. I don't own one. Don't have anything against them though. If I ran across a smoking deal I might get one...maybe.

So basically if they were a completely different gun, you would like them?
I say why worry so much about whether anyone else likes it, if you like it then that's what matters. I love mine and I'm pretty sure a BG would hate it so for me that's a win!

It could be because they go "Kaboom".

I love my Glocks. I own a lot of guns of different brands and shoot the Glocks as well as any. They are simple, reliable, and have a ton of available accessories.
