Which Nickle-Plated Sissy Pistol Did U Drop to pick Up a Glock?

How many of you guys converted over to Glock from the traditional all steel of Sig, Beretta, Ruger, Smith, etc....?

What was your 1st Glock Model that changed you over from primarily using all metal pistols as your primary?

Tell us about when u stopped being a Nickle Plated Carrying Sissy!

Me, I never owned an all steel/metal gun until I inherited an old Colt Detective .38spcl from my Grad Dad.... I owned a Taurus 24/7 1st (which naturally broke in 3 mos.) picked up a G23 and have been a Glocker Since...

OK. The year was 2003. I had been taking a chiding from my friends for EDC'ing an expensive, Behlert Custom, 1911 pattern, steel-frame pistol; and I decided that what I needed to do was pick up one of these new, 'for cheap' plastic pistols. This way if I ever had to, 'buy a farm for somebody' I wouldn't lose any sleep over my Behlert 45 sitting inside some department's cold, damp, and drafty evidence locker.

Unfortunately old habits die hard; and, first thing I did with my brand new, 'for cheap' plastic pistol was to go out and buy a custom-fitted Bar-Sto Precision barrel. Afterwards, however, I discovered my new plastic pistol was, something less than, perfect; but, by that time, it was already to late. For some strange reason I liked the Glock more than I liked, 'WalterGA'; and I was hooked!

I guess I'm getting old and my taste in firearms has aged with me. I have a few Glocks and like them for what they are. But if given an opportunity I'd trade my Glocks off in less than a heartbeat for more of these.

Guess I'm getting old too because those are some fantastic looking nickle plated sissy pistols you have there!

Do you really think your plastic shooter will still be working in 150 years. This does

I have a couple of nickel plated guns and I certainly would not get rid of any for a Glock.

Important procedural point: ALL REVOLVERS are exempted from nickel plated sissy gun status! The NPSG status is applicable ONLY to autoloaders. Comprehension of this important consideration will save significant bandwidth consumption.

I have a nickel plated Glock too.
I'm so confused

Not so many years ago I did prefer Sig Sauer steel guns with alloy frames (P220/45, P239/357).

Lately I've been going polymer.
Today I carried my Heckler and Koch P2000 357 LEM
and a nickel plated Glock G27 40-9mm in a twin shoulder rig.

My Sig Sauer P220 45 is factory nickel plated.
But she's no sissy gun. And I still have her.

I'm formally a Sig and 1911 carrier. I like Glock, but not their width. Thanks to Glock for showing me how nice it is to carry a polymer weapon.
I now switch between an HK and a LW 1911 for carry.

Dropped a S&W 4006 40S&W

What a boat anchor. Heavy, DA/SA, first pull was with both feet to get the gun to go off seemed like 40lbs. Other than that it was reliable and shot ok single action.

I have a Colt .45 ACP 1911 dated 1918 that someone brought back from the war and had it nickel plated. It ain't no sissy gun.

Is nickle plated the same as nickel plated?

I only carry Glocks because my department says so. I like them just fine but I have dropped anything because of them... Seems people who don't shoot much can shoot better scores with Glocks then they could with older Sig models. I personally carry Sigs. I can shoot them better than my Glocks. I have shot with many LEOs. Many can't shoot whether it is a Sig or Glock. They would be better off with a shiny sissy pistol...so as to blind the bad guy with a glare that hit a good guy with a miss.
