    Why on earth would you want an all steel pistol when you can have a much better POLYMER framed

    Perfect example of immature passive aggressive douchebaggery & attention whoring. The guy lives
    to annoy people. This is also how gun rights are destroyed.Douchebaggery is the perfect word
    for this A-...

I didn't fight to defend your freedom so you could vote to take away mine. "A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

I did not get a chance to respond to your quoting me in the "worst handgun ever thread" before it was closed. To answer your question of "what's my experience?" "have I been paid to carry a gun?" and "why would I not listen to professionals?" by "professionals" I assume you mean LEO's?

Well, I'm a 40 year old Infantry Veteran who was paid to carry a gun for 6 years consisting of 2 overseas tours, Egypt "Sanai" and Korea. I chose to secure my CCW 17 years ago after having my lower spine fused in 3 places with a bone graft off my hip plus 6 screws and 5 rods installed my the doc's at Madigan Army Hospital.

I have carried a gun daily and legally for said 17 years, am an avid pistol and carbine shooter, volunteer RSO for my private gun club, and have introduced dozens of new shooters to our sport while training most of them in the safe and effective handling of guns so while I've never been a cop, I do know something about selecting a sidearm, the shootability of all the different platforms, "as I've owned and extensively shot most all of them", and like most pistol shooters who were not sold on "Glock Perfection" as green peas, do not see Glocks as anything more that they are. Which is an OK pistol, "if you can get past the horrible trigger and ergonomics".

They are not bad, but they are far from spectacular.

I was glad to hear that your department got to choose but many do not and simply working as a Cop does not make your opinion any stronger than mine. I've seen more than a few LEO's shoot that I was not impressed with and the vast majority of unsafe acts I've witnessed were perpetrated by officers.

I'm not saying you fit this mold, the fact that your hear indicates that your an enthusiast who spend more than 1 qual day per year firing your weapon.

Just my life experience and why I don't assume anyone knows what there doing, badge or no badge, until I've seen them handle and shoot firearms.

Take Care

My apology if my post offended you. I suppose that I have grown so accustomed to 16 year olds on forums telling me that i'm ignorant, and that something is absolutely God's own truth becauase Jeff Cooper said so.

Experienced people can, and often do disagree. I think that's what happened here. I can understand that you intensely dislike Glocks, because I feel basically the same way about 1911s.

BTW, I only served 4 years in the military, so thank you for your service.

I'm glad you sent this message, because next time I see something in one of your posts that I disagree with, I will know it came from another professional, and not a 16 year old. I will treat it with the respect due a professional

It's kind of a shame, but unfortunately on the internet, we can't see body language, and hear voice inflections. This often causes misunderstanding that wouldn't happen in a face to face conversation.
