    Is it hard to control the recoil of full sized .45ACP pistol(e.g. Glock21) with one hand for average male?

    It will be different for everyone. It depends on hand and wrist strength, if you have a correct grip and the power of the round fired.

    The G21 is a polymer pistol, so it will recoil more than an all steel pistol.

    The answer would be no. I find .40 S&W to be tougher to shoot one handed than .45 ACP - especially from polymer guns.

    You do know that the only real .45s are 1911s right? :cool:

    I have fired a few rental glocks in 9mm 10mm and 45acp. I've found it to be a rather poorly designed pistol in that muzzle flip is excessive controls are small poorly located and some aren't even there. There are problems with larger calibers than 9mm involving case blowouts.

    Sig p220, 1911, cz97, hkusp all better 45 choices than a glock.

    It is in my opinion out of the box one of the worst handguns on the market.

    I'm sure others will have a different opinion

    So, youre telling us that you have no real experience with them?


    Yea, imagine my surprise when i realized there were no headlight or windshield wiper switches on that damn thing. and hes right, the radio controls are too small to play with. ARGH! Wheres the Fu#$%ng ashtray?!?!?!


    On older G22's, and most typically with reloaded ammo(user error), no current production models has issues. THis is a poor statement


    If your gonna try and sell the haterade, have some founded facts.

    And thats why they have so many sold in the US

    Can't tell you about the Glock, but I have no problem with my Colt. No issue with a .40 XD.

    It should not be an issue!

    I guess if you are going to go by how many are sold then the vw beetle is the worlds finest car and lee makes the finest reloading presses. :rolleyes: They are cheap that's why so many are sold. And they are ugly too. Why would someone buy a light weight plastic gun if they are worried about recoil. If you like to practice and you reload you can shoot cast bullets for alot less ..........oh wait you can't do that in a glock. I'll say one thing for glock they have a hell of an advertisment department.

    I think it is easy to control. I have broken both of my wrists. Both bad breaks too. I shoot left handed and i recently (6 months ago) had a compound fracture that was through my growth plate. I shoot my Ruger P90 45 acp with no issues.

    .45 acp

    The answer is no. Recoil is just a "mind''set ....all guns recoil .Some slight ,others not so slight ,and some are perceived as violent. It is what it is.Train yourself just not worry about it.If you have a big gun ,if you want to shoot it ,just deal with it.

    handling them as in renting them and figuring out you dont like them and laying out why is experience. dont need to own a yugo for 25 years to figure out its a junky car...

    well features such as a decocking lever or safety in order to render the gun into a safe state. the slide release is barely a stub. glock failed the army adoption tests due to missing features.

    ummm no the purpose of the 45gap is to strengthen the case near the head to avoid case blowouts from glock's own information... hardly made up.

    flava flav sells oodles of records doesnt mean his stuff is any good.

    i stated my opinion and labeled it as such. i would expect you to at least put forth some real arguments rather than bashing. ive got a basis or everything i said my reasoning for disliking the glock products have experience and fact behind it. i dont expect you to or anyone else to like it or agree with it. i put it there for the person asking what others thought of it.

    sorry if you take offense.
