They're simple and I can find any factory part I want for them.

Reliability. If it doesn't go BANG every time I pull the trigger I couldn't trust it to protect me or my family. Also, after carrying all-steel M1911s for many years I've become partial to Glock's lighter weight.

My favorite thing is a 'package deal' of things with Glocks.

Of the things that are important to me, Glocks usually exhibit them more than any other mass produced pistol. If and when I believe some other mass produced pistol has proven itself to my ideals, I will be a fan of it, too.

Reliability, trigger, accuracy. perceived recoil, simplicity of design, corrosion resistance, and other things all come into play. I really do believe that numerous pistol manufacturers have attempted to copy some of the features to sell their pistols, but they were all falling pretty short until the Generation 4 9mm's came along, lol.

I don't purchase gen4's but my reason i choose Glock is because its a firearm i can trust. Right out of the box.

There's many other reasons, but that is one of my main reasons.

I pick up serious trim with mt GT hat on... the ladies can't resist. That's why!



That, and I want all the nukes to make it out of the silo when its time for war. Gotta go with reliability.

It's dead reliable, easy to maintain, easy to learn the manual of arms, replacement parts are cheap and it's just plain scary looking! When the GLOCK comes out nobody's makin jokes!

What everyone else said and my G19 can balance on it's butt and slide plate, or on the front of the dustcover and bottom of the frontstrap.
I'm working on teaching it to roll over.

But all the other viewspoints went from the ease of customizing to the quality to even box bar sights.

What is your favorite thing about Glocks?
if someone breaks into my house and steals my glocks and nothing else, i'm not gonna be upset.

Low maintenance and the tolerance for abuse. I ran my G23 over 5k rounds without cleaning or a drop of lube and the darn thing just kept running. Zero malfs, ever. I finally cleaned it and lubed it just because I felt bad. A G36 and G27 later? Same opinion. The things just run.

absolute perfection of the K.I.S.S. principle...Glock perfection...

plus, the 17 fits my hand like a glove & has next to zero perceived recoil and holds up to 20 rounds w/ a plus-2 mag extension...

Everything i wanted to say has been said already, It is a great gun. The one thing i did not see about Glock with this thread is how popular the gun is with tv shows, movies and anything else on tv you see with guns, now that is what i call bragging rights.

It finally dawned on me! One reason that I like my Glocks is because they all look basically the same! As long as I only get one of them out at a time, my wife never knows how many I really have!
She just thinks that I'm shooting "The Glock" again!

Don't ever buy her one... and she'll never catch on!

This is an easy answer:

Reliability, Simplicity and Effectiveness, all three describe Glock IMO.
