This has been said but I'll say it again. The price point of the weapon especially under the Homeland Security program. The parts availability and parts price, ease of maintenance (I've detail stripped one of my Glocks before with a nail). The best finish in the industry IMO. Did I miss anything, I'm sure I did.

I like the fact there are so many wanna be Glocks and haters on Glock.
Remember when people complain that there were no external/manual safety.
Look now at the SW M&P, SD, Sigma then XD, Sig 250/290, PPS, LCP, TCP and so on and so that don't have the manual safety and is not 1911.

Remember all those haters that said its "plastic" and wont hold up. Glocks can last past 1911 and wait the M&P, Sig P250, XD and more are "plastic".

Then all the haters tried to find another thing wrong with the lack of grips and now we have the Generation4! Glock continues to kick you know.

Two reasons for Glocks:
1. parts availability
2. tennifer finish

I like shooting traditional da/sa autos more than Glocks. But, shooting is a controlled explosion. Parts need to be replaced after controlling so many number of explosions.

I have yet to find another gun maker that has so many parts available and is easy to work on. If Ruger offered parts for their GP100s, like Glock does, I would own nothing but GP100s.

The fact that it is souless and I am not worried if the gun gets marred. As well as the fact it is a very reliable and simple gun.

Well like everybody else said. Reliable. The finish is tough. The aftermarket is huge. Easy to break down and reassemble. Plus since I have an rtf with gills, it sticks to my hand like glue.
Gen 3 23, Gen 3 21. Too many other firearms to list.

I can't pick just one; reliability, durability, and simplicity would be my top 3 though. I have a brand new G-19, 650 rds through it so far, not a single jam (except when I was teaching my dad to shoot it and he limp wristed the hell out of it). I like that if I am unsure about how well I cleaned it, or if I missed something and didn't realize, it will still fire fine and most likely will not fail. Hell you can just neglect the hell out of it and it will still show you some love. Also value for money can't be beaten because of the above three qualities and a new one can be had for under $500.

Also I know some people think Glocks are fugly but I disagree. I think there is beauty in simplicity and utility. I do admit I like stainless guns and a beautiful 1911 is always great too but my next gun will probably be (if not another Glock) something like a Sig which would be all black again. One day I'd like to own a very expensive, very beautiful 1911 though. I might end up going for a sub-compact Glock though since I don't like carrying in my waistband (and the clothes I wear usually wouldn't conceal it too well unless I wore a very big button down shirt or t-shirt). I can fit a G-19 easily in the pocket of a northface jacket (the lighter one, not the big puffy one) and probably a G-17 as well since the pockets are gigantic. I could also probably fit a G-19 in a cargo pocket but having a G-26 would be nice to be able to put in any pocket (or whatever sub-compact I decide on). Problem there is that the weather down here doesn't normally necessitate a jacket and I normally don't wear cargo pants or shorts except on Fridays due to the dress code at work.

EDIT: Actually I just put my G-19 in the pocket of the shorts I'm wearing now and it is completely concealed. Still I'd probably go sub-compact for pocket carry for less weight and bulk.

I hope I didn't take this off topic too much but I think everything mentioned can be interpreted as why I like Glocks.

Oh, I don't know... Maybe the 14,000 + rounds without a single hiccup thingy counts for something...

subcompact glocks are my favorite:

super reliable feeding and ejecting

lightweight/compact size

very durable finish

availability of parts and holsters

great price

i just found out today it can eat all kinds of ammo, we shot wolf, pmc, umc, and reloads. my 1911 guns are so selective on what feeds through it and the you have to polish the feed ramp, get a stronger ejector, takes up too much maintenance. i feel like a teenager that just found internet "adult materials"

I don't have to think about grip safety, thumb safety, decocked or not decocked - just draw and shoot; kinda like my old Chiefs Special only it's got a 4.02" barrel (G19) instead of a 1.9" barrel, and 15+1 rounds of ammo instead of 5.

But I still carry the snubby now and then. Nostalgia thing I guess. I grew up with revolvers.
