I can understand that. The reason I hadn't bought a Glock before now is because of the trigger and grip. My M&P 40 was my first DAO handgun and it took me a long time to get used to that trigger. When I bought that gun I narrowed it down to the M&P and a Glock 22. I chose the M&P because it felt so much better in my hand (in the store). I bought the G20 primarily because of the caliber. Had always wanted a 10mm and the G20 was available and affordable. Just holding it in the store it felt like holding a brick but I bought it anyway. What I discovered was that it feels great in my hand when I'm actually shooting it. The grip angle doesn't feel the least bit awkward to me. As for the trigger, I like it better than the M&P. Not near as much travel, more positive reset and the pull is lighter.

As a NRA CRSO, the guns most reliable on the range are often times Glocks. Keep your finger off the trigger until you see your sights on the target. Keep your clothing free of your dedicated Glock holster as you reholster. Obey all gun safety rules, and Glocks will treat you pretty well.

The 21 was also my first Glock. It was my lasy duty weapon before I retired. Liked it so well I bought one of my own.

I like mine alot. Its pretty light weight considering the fire power it holds. And It conceals very well also.

I think the M&P's slide is a better design for those with a physical disability, but if the Glock works for you then great.

I currently own a 17 Gen 4. It works, which is what I wanted from the pistol.

I think half the whining and crying about Glocks is emotional baggage and the other half are people who don't know how to shoot a pistol. I've shot Glocks, HK's, SAI XD's, Rugers, SiG's, S&W M&P's, 1911's from various manufacturers, and other random makes and models I can't recall at the moment.

From all the shooting I've done, I've never shot any specific semi-auto pistol so much better than the others that I just had to have a specific make or model. All of them can easily and repeatedly hit a playing card at 15 yards with factory ball ammunition and most are quite a bit more accurate than that.

A wise man once told me, "A GLOCK is like the ugly chick you take home that ends up blowing your mind because she's willing to do whatever it takes to keep you happy."

When you're in a gun shop and you're looking for a new "toy", you're looking for something sexy, sleek, and downright nasty... You've got your Sigs, M&Ps, 1911s, and even some Comp ready pistols on the wall... And then you've got your GLOCKs. Flat black, NO chrome, NO shiny steel, NO buttons or obvious switches, just a plain ole pistol.

I would dare to say that this is what deters MOST from the GLOCK. Yes, some have given it a chance and found that it didn't fit them well after going thru hundreds of rounds (Ya' can't win 'em all right?). But one of the things that makes a GLOCK so good is its ergonomics. That and its attention to simplicity (if that even makes sense). It just feels natural.

I would rather take a good looking chick home that is willing to do what ever I want. But if people are happy with ugly chicks that's fine some people have lower standards.

I literally don't think I've ever heard of someone saying a Glock has superior ergos as compared to, say, an M&P. Or a 1911. Or even a Sig, which I tend to like less than some others, because it has a high bore axis. Still better ergos than a Glock.

My opinion, of course. That, and the fact that I've heard plenty of Glock lovers complain about their ergos.

Glock fits my hand better than any of the others. But that's probably because my Glock 22 beat my hand into submission after firing tens of thousands of rounds with its crappy recoil.
