You own a fine gun. (God that's hard for me to say!)

IMHO, the glock 45 ACP's have less recoil than the 40 S&W.
I'm not worried, I've just never met Glock hater's before joining this and another gun forum. I know not to put reloads and lead bullets in it, as well as to avoid regularly firing low-grain ammo in it.

I didn't have an opportunity to fire the Glock 45 ACP. I just remember shooting my grandad's 1911 and having the hardest time controlling follow-up shots with it, so I figured most/all .45 caliber handguns would give me that much trouble (I'm a lanky fellow). I'll have to get a hold of a G30 some time and see how it compares to my G23.

I own a Glock 36 .45 ACP and it is a great concealed carry handgun. At the range it is very accurate, a lot more loud than anything else there, and has lesser recoil than other .45s. It is easy to field strip and clean.

I only use the recommended ammo and clean it after every shoot.

I can rent one for $10 at my local gun range. I'll have to try it out. I eventually want to get subcompact for concealed carry, and if the recoil isn't bad on the Glock .45's, then I just might get one in the next 6-12 months. I'll have to look at both the G30 and G36.

Owned a glock 27, barely used and after putting about only 500 rounds through it the frame cracked pretty bad. Ever since that plastic POS crapped on me i went to SIG. finest pistol i have ever held and shot besides the Kimber Ultra Carry I owned last year. PLASTIC=Toys, STEEL=Great Weapon!!! but your preference is yours, but i have also had friends make many complaints about there Glock .40s with KBs and a lot of Stovepiping.

I have been carrying one as a duty pistol for over 15 years, same one in fact. Glock model 22. I have not only used it for carry purposes and standard qualification and training, but I have used it for pleasure purposes too. I have probably fired in excess of 60,000 rounds out of it now and not one single malfunction of any kind, even ammo related. Bash it all you want to, but mine is great and I would most definitely not trade it in for a 1911...which I also have plenty of experience shooting and building.

My 10c.

I have an M&P 40 now. Just wanted a change. I like the .40 round. Easier for me to handle than the .45. I have nerve damage in my hands from 2 blown discs in my neck (loss of sensation from tip of index finger around the edge to tip of thumb, both hands), so less kick is better.

I have a Taurus 650 CIA .357 (but I load .38 SPL) for concealed carry. Very small, hammerless, and if I can't end it with 5, then I deserve to be shot.

People were saying the same "Plastic = TOY!" about the M-16 when it came out, and look where we are now with the AR platform. Innovation always takes time to work out the bugs (there are always bugs), and there will always be people resistant to change.

If you don't like it, fine. But don't put it down as some "toy", as it clearly is not. If it were, the bugs would have become apparent a decade ago, and no one else would have joined up with their own versions.

1911 = "Your great-grandpa's gun!" Get with the times!!!

(That was sarcasm, for those that missed it.)

If Glocks are all, indeed, ticking time bombs, then they aren't very good ones. Only a few of them have exploded so far........

I have a Glock 23 now for about 10 years plus, this has been one of my most reliable hand guns I have owned, I've personally had over 5000 rounds thru the barrel, I never knew about the lead bullet, or low gain problem until I read it last night, also I bought this Glock off a good friend of mine that was a police officer, and I know this was his duty weapon, so there could have been 1000's more rounds thru this, I have up graded the trigger, and a few other things but never the barrel, Now my question is knowing what I have read last night is which barrel should I go with, as now I want to replace it, and along with the barrel what other things do I need to replace, as for right now the gun shoots great and I have never had any kind of issue with it,
I also own a 1911 and both of these I'm vary happy with My Glock is the one I carry when I'm out hiking hunting fshing etc, I have not had the chance to do the same with my 1911 as I just bought it about a month ago, by the way the 1911 is a Kimber CDP PRO II
so could someone chime in on this please thanks in advance
