    Glocks Rule !!!!!!!!

    Rule what???? :p :D Have fired 2 Glocks in my lifetime (one in 9mm and a 40 S&W) and did not find either to be appealing in any way , shape or form? I guess the saying - "To each their own" applies here. But a fellow shooter is a fellow shooter regardless of what they shoot. :)

    Very well said, thats why own both a 1911 and a Glock. I can appreciate both and realize the differences in both tactical and civilian applications. Those who polarize the issue provide a source of entertainment for me.

    Glocks never did it for me. They're great little guns, but I'll never own one. The safe action trigger just feels too weird for me, that's my main beef. The slope of the handle is odd to me, but hardly grounds to say it's awful. Personally I've always been a fan of autos with exposed hammers, another way the glock doesn't satisfy me. But for concealed carry they are hard to beat. Compact, reliable, and accurate enough. If it weren't for the trigger I'd be sold. I'm more of a fan of the Beretta 92F myself.

    I've had Glocks, and worked on Glocks, but have never really been able to shoot a Glock all that well. Grip angle is just not right for me, and the gun seems boxy sitting on top of my firing hand.

    I guess 30 years of shooting 1911's makes a difference.

    :cool:

    I wouldn't give up my little Glock 27 (converted to 357 sig) for any other gun currently manufactured. :cool:

    The thing thats really funny is that you guys who bash high strength plastic polymers and composites , put your life on the line every time you get on an aircraft. Most of the avionics are wired and connected with high strength plastic polymers and cased in the same materials. The Harrier AV8B wing is all composite and can hold 5,000 lbs or ordinance. Its really hysterical when you think about it. You'll trust your life to a pilot you've never met and you will trust your national budget to $11,000,000 for a Harrier to defend our nation, but you won't trust your life to one of the best handguns in history, built by a nation who has been making firearms since its inception after the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Its really hysterical when you put things in perspective. Just an observation from someone who looks at life from a broader perspective. , Oh by the way, what about all the cops wearing Glocks? they can't be all stupid, can they?
    Forgive the sarcasm, I am just a poor and humble observer of life ,who's been shooting for 25 years. :D

    I can see you're trying to start something, cause I don't think anyone has dissed the glock for the reasons you're stating, well not on this thread anyway. On the topic of composite handguns, there's a certain feel to a steel gun in your hand, I believe the word is weight. I don't carry a gun so having a light weight side arm isn't an issue, but I like the feel of a heavy 1911 in my hand. Plus it helps with the recoil. And where did this idea of not trusting a Glock come from. If I had to shoot someone and my choices were a glock or a stone I'd choose the Glock. I'd trust a glock with my life, but it wouldn't be my first choice. If it was a choice between a Beretta 92F and a Glock 9mm then I'd go with the Beretta. I do give glock credit for being one of the only manufacturers to stick by 10mm. You really can't beat a Glock 10mm for concealed carry, 45 eat your heart out.

    Really not rying to start anything, but am looking at the debate from a logical and practical standpoint. 100,000 cops in the US and Europe carry Glocks. They have been tested and re-tested countless times., but it seems like only the anamolies get the press.
    As far as feeling the metal in your hand, I agree. I happen to like how both feel in my hand. I like the traditional feeling of metal , but I also like the ergonomic balance that a Glock provides and I happen to own both., but calling it tupperwear is funny. :D , , I've shoot Glocks hundreds of times at the range and don't understand why people trash them other than the fact that they are too traditionally set in their ways with the 1911.
    When people start to fully comprehend the tactical and civilian/military applications that separate the two gun types, I think they will end up owning both like I do. Its only a matter of time.

    THE FORUM MASCOTT...
    Well ain't this special. Here the thread had been moved without a "moved" thingie in the previous forum........

    I was thinking that the thread had been "poofed" and that i was in trouble ??!!

    sheesh.....

    Remmy, I sure am glad they never made a B&B eppisode with guns in it..... :eek:
    There's no telling what those fart knockers would have done with it....

    Raven, in previous threads about glocks such accusations about polymers usually come up. So some of us glockers will usually confront that issue before its even brought up. TFF does have some very rabid anti glock people on it....namely Gpostal, LTS, Xracer and a few others who usually just spew rhetoric.....so the issue of Glock may seem to be combative. I just chalk it up to ignorance on their part.
    However, nobody here is "trying to start something".....we here on TFF have fun with such debates...there is no actual hatred involved....no matter what it looks like on the surface.

    Yes Gn, its all in good fun. I enjoy a healthy and respectful debate.
    Also, here are recommended Glocks and 1911's

    Glocks.
    17,19,27

    1911's
    Llama, Firestorm, Para Ord.


    My rule of thumb. Get all 6 and have fun.

    and then throw in some Kel Tecs for backups.
    You can never have too many.

    Don't take me so seriously, I'm just messing around. As for the 1911 fanatics, they idolise a gun made almost 100 years ago. They are set in their low capacity mags and outdated .45acp round. I just don't get it, there are better guns and rounds out there. Eh, whatever, this thread isn't going to be any fun unless someone comes and makes fun of the glock.

    Hey glocknut, was this thread originally posted in the 1911 section?

    I'LL DO IT. I'll talk trash on the Glocks. Springfield has put out a much better gun!!!! Glocks are now outdated!!!!! ( that's for all you folks bagging on my 100 year old design. ) Cops only carry them because they HAVE TO. Few cops get to choose theirown gun now. They can only choose from a short list of them. Obviously the Glock is the best of the junk they get to pick. I hate the trigger, I have witnessed a KB at my local range before, dont like the grip angle, don't like the looks, or the fact that they melt in high heat.
    And as for you people down-talking the 1911....... shame on you. I want you to all drop to your knees and beg the forgiveness of J.M. BROWNING!!!!!

    In reality though.... Personal preference is a HUGE factor in guns. Personally, I dont like Glocks, but i do respect the gun, the makers, and the shooters who choose them. if a Glock gets you to the range to practice... then they have a purpose. If a Glock protects yourhome ( yes, they are reliable ), bless you and your family.. and thank you for not letting crime be too easy.

    If you need to hear more complaints about the Glocks... I am gonna try out one of their compitition guns on saturday. My buddy just bought one.
