    Very excited! traded my old 20 years + colt compact for a Glock 21 SF at the show in Tampa. Had a trigger job and night sites put on at the samed time. Looking forward to the range in the next few days to try it out.

    Welcome to the club.

    A 1911 it isn't, but it generally goes "bang" when you pull the trigger and if you do your part it's plenty accurate.

    Prepare for the onslaught of the Glock haters and fanboys.

    I've learned to love it for what it is instead of hating it for what it isn't.

    Pics of his Glock or the Colt he traded?

    Remember, your only safety is the holster you choose, and your ability to control what contacts the trigger, and when.

    I went from a 1911 style pistol (Star PD ) twenty some years ago to a Glock 21 that I traded pretty quickly for a Glock 21.

    Glocks are not trophy wives, they are big boned, wide at the hip gals.

    The 21sf is a fine .45. I've had one and it shot very well and definitely my favorite of the gen3 .45 models.

    Welcome to Glockdom. It is your first, but it probably won't be your last. Simple to operate, rugged as heck, easy to tear down and reassemble, heck....it just makes it more fun. Congrats.

    The simplicity of the gun is genius! They did some trigger work and installed night sights too. Put 50 rounds through it this morning. I like it. Thanks for the comments. By the way, guys, I still have a Les Baer Thunder ranch that will NEVER leave me.

    Man. Why didn't you offer me a trade. You could have had my 21 w/ night sights trigger job tungsten guide rod and a 30 rd mag. I like my glock but I would have kept the colt for sure.

    Yeah, I know sight unseen, a lot of people would say that. It was a compact with some Wilson parts on it, but it nver was very accurate for me. In fact, first time out of the box, I shot the glock better. I still have a Les Baer Thunder Ranch, which is an absolute dream to shoot, I'm just not going to throw it in the truck when I'm out working. Traded a 20 year old gun that was worn for a new one and out of pocket $75. satisfied with the deal.
