First, people try and choose 'fighting/shtf/whatever' weapons based on looks, feel, all sorts of crap, none of which is anything more than a training/mindset issue. Get over it. Here's a good for instance. I offer free training, about once a month. Hundreds if not thousands of people read these posts on multiple forums (here, glocktalk, ar-15, etc). Free. Hell, donate 10.00 to help cover targets if you want. FREE. Did I mention free? How many take me up on it? 3 - 5 usually. Most don't like the fact that its not a day of bumpfire and general asshattery and that real training is tough. Wanna be hard? Train hard. The reality is that most people are sheep who are totally unprepared for when the wolf comes knocking. But its easier to be blissfully ignorant than to train hard. Its even harder to swallow your when someone is trying to say, hey, your choices are 'farked up and in front' and you have to face the fact that you're not experienced enough to realize that you don't know what you don't know. I've been there (not knowing what I don't know). Now its my turn to try and help people move from unconscious incompetence to conscious incompetence at the very least. Saying 'Glocks suck' is simply baiting. Specifically: I don't like aftermarket 1911's (no, I'm not including mil-spec weapons) because I see to many of them fail during training & practice. I don't like XD's because I've seen too many of them fail during training & practice. I don't like DPMS and Olympic ARs because I've seen too many of them fail during training & practice. I don't simply say X sucks, period, I try to speak from either personal experience or trusted sources (people who shoot people for a living) whenever possible. No, war gods don't piss on Glocks to make them any more amazing or beautiful, but when it needs to go bang, Glocks seem to have their sh!t together.
