i must admit, when i was first learning to handle/shoot handguns, the glock was the first gun i picked up and it felt TERRiBLE! i was quickly turned off bc everyone kept saying, "go with what feels right." one year later, after training hard and learning to shoot, etc, i picked up a glock again....and IT FELT GOOD! i was naive to so quickly dismiss a handgun with such a reputation, especially as a complete novice. now, i'm not saying that people who say that the glocks feel like crap in their hands dont have any training or dont know how to shoot, but that was my personal experience.
