I love Glocks. Glock 17 is one of my favorite guns but I'm not what you would call a "fanboy".They are great guns.But so are many others.
My preference seems to be SA/DA or DAO guns from Beretta,CZ,Sig,HK than striker fire.I hope to someday get a Glock 19 Gen 3 or a 23.Or maybe just a 23 and get a 9mm swap barrel.

They get easily irritated when Glock pistols are praised. Most of us don't care if a certain piece of hardware gets love from its owners. But for some people it is a truly emotional challenge. They will complain and argue to no end. In the media, they call it a slow news day.
Thank you for proving my point.

My main issues are the arrogance of this manufacturer,

the gun's butt-ugly appearance, and the unresolved

safety/ glock-leg issue.

BTW, OP, you did ask.


I had been making it a point to not get into the

glock section recently. There's no point in arguing

with folks who are convinced their guns are

superior, no matter what.

I like The Yankee Marshal's analogy. He compared the Glock to the Honda Civic. The Civic will get you from point A to point B quite reliably. It does the job. Is it THE best car. No it's not.
His description of the Glock fanboys goes something like this. Imagine someone walking into a car dealership asking for a luxury convertible. The fanboy will come in screaming, "get a Honda Civic, it's the best car ever"!

I owned a Glock (21). I sold my Glock. There are better choices for me. Not a hater.
