Don't know Logan'sdad, but I think I would like to meet him.
The Glock line shoots almost too well to have been built, as they look and feel, in a toy store. And that's the problem, for me: as well as they shoot and function, if they only LOOKED and FELT like a real pistol, I'd probably own several.
But, they don't, IMHO. Train as you fight; you fight as you train- I've heard that , somewhere, a lot. And it's true- your muscles, properly trained,(1,000-1,500 reps), can react faster than the brain can.
Being an old guy, it's more work now than it was then, to learn new motor skills. Having run the 1911 in it's various persuasions for nearly 40 years, if I'm gonna switch, it must be to a gun that at least feels like a gun; Glock doesn't make the cut.
Hell, I have trouble with the triggers on J-frame Smiths; they, with their coil mainsprings, just don't feel like a K-frame's flat spring action, 'tho this may be splitting hairs.
Fact remains, we fight as we train, and when the s**t gets deep, I want a gun that needs no introduction; one that , when you close your hand around it, introduces itself.
If JMB is a dated design, OK. Why, then, do the LAPD, the FBI, the SOCOM troopers, et al, consider it the GO-TO design???
In two words--- IT (F*****G) WORKS!
Maybe that's two, maybe three, but the message is inescapable,in that the three best funded(read this-price is no object) agencies, at the local, Federal, and International levels of dispute resolution, all choose the same design, albeit with different accessories, to be in their hands when they are first thru the door.
If this is unclear, please advise.
Don't start no s**t and there won't be none, Terry
