    Why does everyone always bash Glocks? They are a great manufacturer and a well built firearm(i own 2 of them). I get the plastic vs steel deal but every time someone mentions polymer guns, people are always knockin' the Glocks. Why? There are plenty more polymer guns than glock to bash on.

    Why does everybody bash McDonald's when having a fast food debate? Glock was the first plastic handgun to go mainstream and sell like crazy, thus being the standard by all others are judged. Some are better, some are worse, which is all subjective(not starting an argument). They are generally reliable, quality firearms, but I don't like them because they don't feel right.

    ditto. if its popular, regular, familiar, trendy, you seem cooler if you hate on it.

    I like how they feel I'm not big on plastic, If they where made completely out of metal, had external safety's, no trigger safety I would buy one. I don't really "hate" them per say I just don't like them for me.

    Some people don't like the grip angle. I don't own one. Don't have anything against them though. If I ran across a smoking deal I might get one...maybe.

    So basically if they were a completely different gun, you would like them? ;)
    I say why worry so much about whether anyone else likes it, if you like it then that's what matters. I love mine and I'm pretty sure a BG would hate it so for me that's a win!

    I love my Glocks. I own a lot of guns of different brands and shoot the Glocks as well as any. They are simple, reliable, and have a ton of available accessories.

    Just what everybody needs: a gun with bad ergonomics that you can't shoot reloads through and you can't shoot cast bullets with it. No safety and a crappy trigger. Sounds like perfection to me. :rolleyes:

    I operate a home for unwanted Glocks. I'll pay the shipping to take it off your hands. :rolleyes:

    IMO Glock is to pistols what Mossberg is to shotguns. May not be the sleekest, but they work and cost is reasonable.

    The problem isn't the guns. They seem to be good reliable equipment. I don't care for the grip or the trigger. In a market full of polymer guns, I find nothing special about Glocks. But so what, that's not the issue.
    Glock bashing isn't so much about the guns themselves, it's about yanking the chains of the fanboys. In some circles, Glocks are treated with a reverence typically reserved for religion or socialism, depending on one's priorities. Anyone who has that much emotional stake in a brand of firearm needs to be messed with on occasion.


    In before the lock.

    It is the choice of inexperienced handgun owners. They are they same people who would have bought a "Derringer" in the last century. They like the derringer can only be used with carefully selected ammo of the day. They are the choice of gang bangers and rappers. You don't need an accurate gun when you hold them side ways and fire at 3 feet. :rolleyes:

    This is beating a dead horse. Every so often this comes up, Glock fanboys tell amazing stories of indestructible guns. The 1911 fanboys call them plastic fad guns only newbie morons own.
    Let's all be friends and talk about quality guns like Jennings or Raven:)

    Better to bash them than to MELT them. :p

    Seriously though, if Springfield doesn't come out with an XD10mm, i will eventually get the glock 10mm and doubl-sided tape a pretend grip safety to it.
