Default Glocks, grip angles

Im in the market for a new pistol, and im considering a glock. I have held one a few times, but honestly im not sure about the grip angle. Sometimes its weird for me, sometimes not. Has anyone been unsure of the grip, but gotten used to it over time?

I was unsure of the grip on my G17 but the have different back straps and I got some decal grips to put over it. And in all honesty after shooting it more and more I overcame it without the grips.

I hated my oldladys 17 when she first got it, but now i shoot it all the time. Its accurate and really easy to shoot. I love my revolver but i would shoot the Glock with no problems. And the grip angle really isnt bad. Shoot a couple and see how you like it. You will defenitly get use to the grips.

Try this. Step 1 Hold your arm out and point with your index finger at an object. Step 2 while maintaining that angle of the wrist and hand open your fingers to allow a buddy to place the glock in your hand. Notice how the sights are aligned with what you were initially pointing at? The glock is a point and shoot pistol. That's why the grip angle is the way it is. Xd's are similar. May be a degree or so off.

Everytime I held a Glock I used to say, "but it feels weird, like holding a 2x4". Then about 2 months ago a friend and I were out shooting some, he must have brought 7 or 8 pistols. He pulled out his G17 and asked if I wanted to try it. I said sure I've never shot a Glock but I'll try it. I pointed at the target and pulled the trigger 17 times and thought, I need one of these. I now have a 22 and a 27 and love them both.

Me personally, i never saw the big deal about the grip angle. Maybe cause my second pistol was a Glock but even before then, i didnt have a problem

I actually prefer the grip angle on a Glock over most other handguns. I love the way the bore axis sits so low in my hand.

Yup, It's all subjective to the shooter, some folks like 'em, some don't...That is all...
