What is your favorite thing about Glocks?

I got into a debate about what I liked best about Glocks with friends. I had the most different answers and said their versatilty was the coolest before XD and S&W copied their idea of shooting a full size mag in a compact or subcompact gun and the C models. 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?

Simplicity! Plus I love one platform multiple calibers. Only one trigger to learn! Oh... and it being a Glock!

1) economical, at least relatively speaking; and 2) they work.

Nothing compares to this point. When the day comes I have to pull my weapon I want it to fire without issue.

Quick Recovery for that follow-up shot!

(which is oftentimes more accurate than the first!)

You can treat them like an old lawnmower and they don't seem to care.

No bells, no whistles, no fancy parts.n If I pull the trigger, anytime, it shoots.

Another vote for absolute reliability.

There's no higher priority when your life is on the line, whatever one's choice of self-defense firearms is.

The consistently poor trigger. Once you've mastered one, you can shoot them all.

Reliability, and the huge amount of aftermarket parts and knowledge on these forums. Also, the simplicity of the design makes it so easy to do everything yourself if you want to.

You can kick it in dirt, drown it, drop it, spit on it, pick it up, shoot it, and hit your target. It's not shiney, doesn't attract finger prints, and doesn't hate you if you don't clean it after the range. It'll eat whatever you want to feed it, and only asks for more. It's comfortable to shoot, easy to work on, and you can change anything about it through the aftermarket. If eugene stoner took the idea of the AK's reliability and made a pistol, it would be the glock. It's being copied as much as the AR and 1911 now, because of the same reasons - they work.
