Perhaps you didn't read the part of my statement when I said the reason for drop ratios can be attributed to lack of experience with a new weapon system of any kind, not just the glock. This clearly shows in your lack of ability to accept newer weapon systems because you are pre-glock. Perhaps a hi point and an m14 would best suite your needs as technological advancement doesn't seem to be your fortay.

First, I didn't addressed my post to you.
Second,the Bold Red part of you post doesn't make any sense, I carry a Glock every day and I'm very proficient with my M4, where in my statement it says that I don't have the ability to accept new technology, read before you post.

We all have different opinions on grip angle but Glock's angle is not that large and certainly not a new development. The Luger's angle is greater and dates back to about 1899. During the US Army trials that led to the acceptance of the Colt of 1911, the board liked the Luger angle and had Colt increase its grip angle as it was too close to a right angle. The Ruger .22LR semiauto grip angle also predates the Glock by decades.

I would like to see a couple of new models, not neccessarily changes to existing models. To me, the RTF frame (not the new Gen 4) was the BEST OF THE BEST.

1: Single stack full frame and slide length in .45ACP.
2: Glock 26/27 slide mated to a Glock 19/23 Frame.

No thanks on the Hi Point, but I'd take a Hi Power and an M14 any day.

All I'm saying on the grip angle is that under stress, the body reverts to natural positions which is why a whole lot of shooters demand a gun the points naturally with no need to flex the wrist.

On new tech...I find just about every other pistol out there to be acceptable because they all have grip angles that pretty much follow natural body mechanics.

The simple test for this is to pick up a new handgun, clear it, find a spot on the wall, close your eyes and raise the pistol to what you believe to be a level firing position, I.E...front and rear sights aligned. Do this with the Glock and most folk open their eyes to see that there looking at top of the slide. I.E...this pistol is actually pointed above the target. Under stress this is the position most shooters will revert to causing them to miss high.

Again, not flaming glocks here. Just MHO after 6yrs Infantry service, 20 yrs of handgun shooting, and 16 yrs of carrying concealed handguns.

Take it or leave it.

TACK

+1 on some new models.

I would also like to see a full size single stack .45, as well as a Glock 19 size single stack 9mm to provide a slimmer profile, along the lines of the Walther PPS.

I would also like to see a "practical/tactical" long slide version in .45 ACP.

The new beaver tail backstrap from Glock for the GEN4 is also an excellent upgrade.
