The only Glock models that are special are the 34 and 35. Just IMO.

Glocks work. They are not pretty. They are not "classic". They just work. Are they, as the advertisments say "perfection"? Of course not. If they were there would not be Gen2,3,4 models out there.

Glock 2nd Gens and 3rd Gens in 9mm and .45acp just plain work. I highly recommend them as a no-frills sidearm.

Glock 3rd Gens in .40...work for a while but wear out quickly, lots of part breakages. Also have issues with mounted accessories like weapon lights.

Glock Gen4's...some do, some don't. Lots of extractor issues and broken promises.

I am a Glock armorer with many years experience servicing Glocks for the LEA I work for and can assure you that Glocks are not perfect.

A company would not stay in business if their products were not up to customer standards.
I would not mind having a PMR-30. Before the sandy hook shooting I was at my LGS. I asked if they had any. They said they are on back order. And when they do git some in they are gone with in days.

Glock is to pistols, what Mossberg is to shotguns. Not the snazziest, but they work.

For a utilitarian, reliable duty or SD weapon, yeah, they're fine.
If you like ergonomics and crisp triggers, then you may find it less than stunning.
I the 80s they were truly innovative. Nowadays, they are one of many polymer pistols.

Last night while reading, I saw some gen 2 glocks were banned for whatever reason, does anyone know what that reason is? I tried plugging it into google and other search engines and I could not pinpoint the exact reason. I will admit I was half asleep when I was looking it up but can anyone confirm if some glocks were banned and if so what was the reason?
thanks Jeff

I'm not familiar with a "ban" on Glocks, but you might search "Glock Kaboom" and see if that is what you read is referring to.
