No one plans to bury a gun. They are showing a different way to prove durability.

I have shot Glocks over a number of years, but never owned one. I'm trying to understand the fascination (cult following?) with Glocks as I just don't seem to "get it."


Yep, this should be a 1911 thread. I wasn't aware we had a cult following for Glocks, but the 1911 - of course we do - this is America. I'm not sure what your favorite gun is, but my throw away priced Glock, as you refer to it, will serve the same purpose as any of the high dollar guns that you mentioned in a carry defensive situation.

Im with you, those are the only reasons to buy ANY non-collectible gun.

Why Glock over Sig or HK? Because of the price and overall value and it does in fact go bang every time. I dont have thousands of dollars to blow just because I can. We cant all fill our safes with HK's, FN's and Sig's.

I like all kinds of guns!! I've stated that I will own a Ruger SR1911, hopefully soon!!. Anyways, it just seems that there are alot of 1911 "FANBOYS" in this forum. Like this thread, why even make this thread! He had his answer already before he even posted! If a Glock fan would've started a thread it would be over run by 1911 fans saying this is crap!! You probably can start a thread about "How does grass grow?" and someone will bring up 1911 vs. Glock!!!! I'm just trying to say that both guns are great weapons!! Why all the **** talking? Everybodys hands are different and everybody has different tastes!!!
