    I have NightHawk tastes but a HighPoint budget. Does that mean if I come across a bunch of money I should buy a Glock? Nah, I'd rather have a Taurus than a Glock

    Jealousy runs deep in you. It's a $50 car that gets 40mpg, is comfortable and makes a great stealth deer hunting rig

    I'd rather have a Hi Point than a Glock. Not that I would really want either one. If it's not steel with a hammer I don't really want it but I'd take steel without a hammer if I had to.

    If someone gave me a Glock, I'd sell it, use the money to buy a yellow dog, and shoot the dog.

    And I like dogs.

    I'd do like I did with the Glock I did have. Find a sucker with a 1911 that wanted to try a Glock. :D I traded a LNIB Glock model 30 for an old West Hurley Auto Ordnance that already had all the custom work done on it and the bugs worked out of it.

    I just read an article in 1911 special of either shooting times or guns & ammo. One of the big gun manufacturers makes a 9mm 1911 that holds over 20 rounds. Thing was mean looking.

    Yeah that's my number one complaint about the Glock to. My second is i absolutely hate the trigger safety. I'd just as soon have no safety at all as a trigger safety. The third is its striker fired, call me old fashioned but I like my external hammers. The polymer frame doesn't bother me in the slightest.
