I tried many different guns out and the Glock just fit my hand and felt good, I love my 19 but now my daughter is going to take it as soon as she gets her CP as she loves it, guess I'll have to get me a 1911 to go with my S&W 629.

First Reply! YES!!

I'm on the edge of getting my first Glock, a 19. I'm stoked. I've heard nothing but good on them.
But likewise, it seems like anyone who bashes Glocks just ramble on about nonsense and can't seem to give a definite reason as to why they are absolutely useless....other than the fact that their precious 1911 or Single Action Army just might have been hopelessly out classed by a Glock. Seems Glock haters have never even touched a Glock.

In closing, I dare not bash anyone else's handgun. To each their own. If it works, it works. I, myself, have come to quite adore my Tokarev TT-33...
I'm just saying that you can't bash any handgun without factual support. Glock, XD, or otherwise.

I bought my first handgun in 1973. My first Glock 4 years ago. In between I can't honestly say how many various handguns I've purchased. Well into the dozens. Now I have 6 Glocks, and they are my favorites, and get shot the most. When I can't decide, I just grab a Glock.

They are easy to shoot accurately, rock solid dependable, easy to disassemble and clean, and will all but run forever. They are not the prettiest, most accurate, or a gun you will show off at barbecue's. But they were never designed for that. They are rugged, dependable, and a gun you can stake your life on, and it won't let you down. Bill T.

You gonna love that G19

Years from now you will most likely realize...WOW, I've had this G19 forever, as other handguns came and went from your collection.

I seem to ccw my G19 more than anything else.

IMO - Its the BEST 9mm handgun. I'm also getting to love me recently added G17 (Just a 'lil bigger in both directions )


I'm currently really thinking hard about adding some Glocks in .45

Hickock45 is amazing to watch - like the 230yd shot he made with a handgun.

i tried several firearms before "The Glock". I have owned almost every Glock model at one time or another...I carry the 19 for one simple reason, KISS and it goes bang everytime!
I carry it like a set of keys...be safe all!

What I generally do with my Glocks, is after I shoot, clean, and re lubricate, I store them inverted in my gun safe for a few days with the top of the slide sitting on a piece of paper towel, or else a clean rag. This allows any excess oil and lubricant to drain downward, away from the frame itself. Most of the parts on a Glock that do require lubrication are in the slide anyway, so it helps to keep the lube where it's needed. Then, after a few days I store normally in a rack, or on their side.

I would bet that at least 75% of Glock owners never spent any significant time with any handgun other than a Glock prior to buying their first Glock. They made an uninformed decision based on the hype, and are now lifelong fanbois that will never open their eyes to any other manufacturer. They saw Glocks on TV, fired their buddies Glock, and then bought their own Glock.

Yes, I realize there will be 52 replies from people that claim to have tried out 7 different handguns before buying their first Glock, but that doesn't disprove my point.
I have Ruger, Springfield, Smith & Wesson, Kel-tec, Beretta, Sig Arms, and Walther pistols. I just recently purchased a G17, and have been very very impressed with it after shooting at my 75 yard range. I actually shot my G17 better (than my 92FS) the last time I shot my plates. Now I want a G19. I guess don't totally agree with your generalization because most of my gun owning friends didn't rush out and buy a Glock for their first gun. Many don't even own a Glock yet. I'm glad I bought one. Would I recommend Glock for someone's first gun...probably not because I often recommend guns with decockers and a safety switch. P.s. I won't be getting rid of any of my other guns, and I will be purchasing non-Glocks in the future too.

The Glock 17 that I gave to my son was the first pistol I owned. I had shot other pistols before. When it first came out in the eighties, I was not impressed. After shooting some Glocks and reading about them I decided on it. I had a 21SF but sold it. Now I am Glockless. Wanted a G-26 but in Canada the barrel doesn't come with it and must be replaced with a longer aftermarket one. So after taxes and shipping it is about $1200. Can't CCW (am just a Canadian serf so not entitled to self-defence) so it looks like the 17 for range use only. I'd prefer a Gen 1 but will be happy with the Gen 4 now that they have all the bugs worked out.
So, yes, I am one of those guys whose very first pistol was a Glock but not for the reasons put forth by Enscheff,

Actually I tried out 9 models before buying a Glock, which is what the LGS recommended in the first place.

But they made more money because I wouldn't listen

Actually, I think it is just the complete opposite. I'm a perfect example. I've been shooting handguns since the early 70's. I saw my first Glock back in the 80's when they first came out......and promptly laughed at it. A plastic pistol? You've got to be kidding? It took me until just a few years ago to realize just what I've been missing, and purchase my first one. That was 6 Glocks ago.

Now I'm a much better shooter, and happier for it. The gun has completely converted me. Rugged, reliable, cost effective, accurate, easy to shoot, and even easier to maintain. It would be difficult to ask for much more. In short, for a self defense weapon it is ideal. If it's worth protecting, it's worth protecting it with a Glock.
