I did no such thing. I pointed several glaring truths of a line of pistols that I do not tolerate in my realm.

If you took something personal. Well? *shrug*

The truth is a bitch....

Think of as the same thing as the Ford vs. Chevy vs. Dodge (etc.). The funny thing is that you will hear people say that this glock is too big for their hand and someone else, whose hand is about the same size, will say that it is too small. It is just personal preference.

Me, I am a dyed in the wool Ford person, I carry a Glock, but I absolutely love my Steyr GB. I have a small to medium hand, the grip on that thing is huge, but I love it and shoot great with it. It is the original "Combat Tupperware" and (f)ugly gun.

I have no doubt that they are reliable(unless you want a 40) and I know they serve many people well, I'm just not one of them.

Have to agree, although I prefer the comparison with a caulking gun

The grip angle is hell on my [puny] wrist, and I seem to shoot low with them as well. Just all-round damn uncomfortable. I think ergonomics go a long way towards accuracy with any gun...feels like crap to hold, can't see how you're going to shoot well.


And to JD's point about LEOs - Glocks were cheap & reliable so Govts worldwide jumped at them (although I notice that South Australia's police have gone straight from S&W.357 revolvers to being issued with M&P.40s recently). Most other aust cops use Glocks.

I was looking into that was well and I think M&Ps may have a touch of the ghey...Ergonomically better yes but I couldn't find anything about any safety other then the trigger. And an outright crappy feeling trigger too I might add. Feels like the thing is going to snap off when pulled and does nothing in helping you get your finger on the trigger when needed.

I don't hate glocks, but they are not for me. The last one I shot was a 32, .357 sig. It had better ergonomics than others I've tried, but that trigger is just too odd. I guess if was the 1st handgun I had ever fired I could have gotten to like it more, but I started w/ wheelguns for hunting, personnal defense and then moved to auto's. Started w/ a 1911 in 10mm. Hands down now my favorites are Sigs. The gentleman that owned the Glock 32 had 1 comment after I outshot him w/ his own gun, and then outscored him useing 8 bullets to his 13 in my Sig P6. He said, well mine holds more ammo.

Glocks are good guns, I hate the fanboy attitude around them. I have one friend that thinks they are the be all end all pistol on the market. Says XD are cheap knock offs that are not as good says 1911 are old and worthless. SO WHAT The glock to me fills like it was carved out of a 2x4 by an 8 year old boy scout with a new and very dull barlow knife. I like the ergos of my 1911. I have shot glocks XD's and many other pistols in my life and for me to get a polymer gun I am going straight for the XD 45acp.

The worst thing is people buy a glock first and then get all tied up in the fanboy attitude and then they never buy a different gun.
