I did not have any problem adjusting. See if you can rent one and practice.

Took me a few to get used to it. Too me it feels very "blockish".

Well I went to the range today and rented a Gen 3 G17. What I found was its not so much the angle, but the hump on the grip that throws me off. Also took some brass to the head. For this being my first time shooting any pistol other than my Sig .22, I think I made some decent groups. To me they look as good if not better than the groups with my Sig. Groups were at 7 yards.

Shoot it a few hundred rounds and you will get used to the angle. To me, the problem is switching back and forth between Glocks and other "traditional' handguns. If you go Glock, go ALL Glock and it will not be an issue.

I lost my ring finger on my right hand and have a rod through my pinky. The glock is the only gun that feels right after my accident. I personally think the grip angle is perfect. I had to sell my 1911 but I bought another glock and a case of ammo

I have no problem with the Glock or its grip angle but then I don't mind the grip angle on other pistols, even the Luger or Ruger Mark II. The brain, hand and eye adjust real quick.

I too have this problem owning three glocks one of which I shoot competitions with then switch to a 1911 Kimber. Now that I shoot Glock's primarily I can't aim quickly with my 1911, but I love my 1911....I'm so confused, lol
