I carry a G26 daily. Also have a 19, and my old duty weapon G22.
Once you go Glock...LOL
I am a Glock Guy and have owned/shot them for over 20 years, also carried G19 as my duty weapon for over 10 years. After retirement, I sold all my double stack Glocks and now have a G43 as my EDC and just recently purchased a G48 as a sometime carry gun, That's It!
Springfield Armory, Ruger and Smith & Wesson are in my "Glock" collection.
Since posting this almost a year ago I finally found a Plastic fantastic pistol I can live with. The S&W M&P series. I own 3 now; two first gens, a 9mm and a 40; and a gen 2 9mm. All have nice crisp triggers and have been 100% reliable. Honestly I can't imagine anyone would buy a Glock after shooting one of these. They are hands down better guns in every way. Certainly more ergonomic and safer; and MUCH better triggers. A stock M&P trigger is better than the best aftermarket Glock trigger I have ever felt. Then if you put an Apex trigger in the M&P it rivals a 1911 trigger.
My Glock family is not invited to Thanksgiving dinner.
Just added a G17, Gen5
I'm on a list at my lgs to get a call when the G22, Gen5 comes out in October. Pumped about that one!!
Only one for me. A Glock 26. I prefer more classic styles,revolvers,1911 etc.
(I have a Galco Skyops IWB holster for it that I personally dislike and can’t seem to sell either)
That’s how I feel about S&W Glock clones, lol.
G19 with Holosun optic
...and a gen 1 G20
...and a Gen 5 G40
Sill the same, after like 5 new firearms this year, I still don't have one..
Since H&K was actually the first polymer pistol to market; by your rationalization Glock would be an H&K clone.
The fact that S&W came to market after Glock only gave them more time to improve the genre; which they did.
Plastic or not Glock's are a great value. Mine are stock as a door knob. My carry gun is a G23.4. The others are a Glock 20.3 and a 21.3. Right now I'm working up loads for the G21. I also really like my H&K USP compact in 45ACP. For me, it's too big to carry. Never the less, a great handgun also.
See; now I have trouble with that statement given that; just as a for instance; RIA can sell a all steel 1911that has MUCH more machining, finishing etc for the same price as a Glock. How does that translate to Glock being a great value? No, sorry; Glocks are a ripoff IMO
EDIT: Also keep in mind that blue label Glocks sell for $300+ and still make a profit. And you still think they are a great value at $500+?
EDIT2: Glock has a great marketing machine and the koolaid drinkers line up to get behind them. Glocks claim to fame is that they were sold dirt cheap to govt agencies, especially back in the day. And we all know that if XYZ agency uses them then they must be good, and people line up to buy them. Not realizing that the reason that agency bought them was about price and them being "adequate" NOT because they were the best submitted.
You gotta admit that it is hard to argue with success.
LOTS of successful crap out there; a quick stroll though Walmart or Harbor Freight proves that. Long way from being a "great value" though. LOL
It's OK to go out and buy a handgun without being a fanboy or a Kool-aid drinker. How many of these other wonderful handguns are Glock knockoffs to some degree. The point is that the Glock are tough and easy to maintain. I find to more than sufficiently accurate for the gun's intended use
.I was in a pawn shops some years back. In the case was a fully tricked out High Point handgun. Looking at it I wondered if all our tastes were the same that could have been our gun. Incidentally, I have a strong preference for big frame revolvers. Fact is I can buy a good automatic for less than a crappy revolver. Yet again it's what ever cranks your tractor.
