I'll throw everybody in this thread for a loop,I'm a certified 1911 guy,have owned Dan Wessons and springfields and the like.

I carry a glock30sf? Why?

Mags are inexpensive

Gun is (relatively) inexpensive

Parts are inexpensive.

It holds 3 more rounds, and is as concealable as a 1911.

Will go boom everytime ( like all my 1911's have).

When you get pulled over a cop doesn't really care to look at it much (but he will viciously finger-bang your Dan Wesson valor).

It is surprisingly accurate.

Will feed anything you put in it,FMJ,HP,crayons.

Grip angle actually fits my hand and the double stack grip fills my bear mits. (Shoot a 1911 just as well though).

I seem to point shoot better with it than a 1911.

And most of all... If I drop it I won't cry,and if it breaks I can melt it down and make another!

That's the point I'm making!! All guns can be considered reliable these days!! Some are a little more picky with ammo than others. The thing that set Glocks and few others apart is the torture test! I mean it is nice to know if you get a little dirt in your gun it's likely to perform flawlessly!

I do not think of it as a "LE discount". LE pays what the gun is actualy worth. Civilians pay a Gaston, anti 2A premium.

Is that an opinion or a requirement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, there are rules for punctuation in the English language, They're there because it makes things easier to read. In addition, It makes you look smarter when you try to use them properly, and some of us will listen to you instead of blowing you off.....same thing goes for spelling and grammar. Not that EVERYTHING has to be perfect, God knows mine isn't, but an attempt at least is appreciated.

Sorry, I didn't know the Nazi Grammar police was trolling "firearms talk". I will try to do better, especially when I know they are on duty. Apologize again.

Everybody loves Glocks. The ones that claim they don't! Just want something to debate. Strange, how that covers about half the gun junkies of the world. EEEEEK

I have seen a Glock malfunction. I was at a competition with the Sheriffs Dept. I am not LE. I am with the Jail ministry. A guy was shooting a Glock and it went full auto. That could have been much worse than it was. He let go of the trigger and it kept shooting. Luckily he was a pretty seasoned shooter and kept it in a safe direction until it stopped. I believe it was a broken sear. Not sure. Just a guess. I could see that scaring a new shooter and someone getting hurt. I am not a Glock hater or lover. Just telling what I saw first hand.

That's scary, and way worse than a FTF!! As good as they may be, they are mechanical and subject to fail! That's why it's a good idea not to love them to much , but respect them very much!! Not only Glocks but all firearms.
