Naaa there junk, buy something else!!! There is one original glock 17 test pistol thats up to 300,000 rounds with one barrel change barrel change and many recoil springs.

There ain't many bad firearms. Just some a little better or worse than others. If the glock fits your hand well buy it. Rent first to see how you feel.

Everybody should own one or six.

A 17 and a 21 at minimum.

Depends on what you are doing with it.
Do you reload? If so you will need to change the barrel. Will you be using ammo with exposed lead? If so you could blow it up. Unless you change the barrel.

Default Adequate

Glocks are adequate.

I carried one for a few years at the behest of my then employer. It worked, I qualified with it. It was a 9x19 chambered item, so that didn't thrill me, but it seemed to suffice. They are pretty well engineered, pretty well executed, and fairly inexpensive to make.

The down side for me is the grip is too wide for comfortable, confident control if I'm shooting one handed, the trigger is 'mushy' (a product of my past and expectations) and the device just has no soul. That's all I have to say bad about it, which isn't really a hearty damning.

Except for this: Any firearm which cannot be loaded and casually fired with lead bullets is intrinsically flawed.

Glock was the third handgun manufacturer I purchased. I still have the one I bought at age 21. The other two are long since gone.
