I have recently considered the thought of betraying My glock 20 and trading it for something that would fit my hands better. i bought my Generation 3 Model 20 almost exactly a year ago, but upon my first time shooting it i realized with horror that i was terribly inaccurate with it. My first trip to the range yielded (with 100rds of CCI blazer 200gr FMJ) about a 1 1/2ft group at about 17yards. Within the same session of shooting i would switch off and shoot my dads Kimber custom 2 1911 .45acp; with his handgun i was averaging 4'' groups at 25yds. I was kicking myself in the head. But i decided to keep going with it and get use to the trigger and see if i could get better. 300rds later my groups did indeed shrink, but now my best is still about a 10 to 12" at 20yds. this is because i have gotten used to the trigger. I love the firearm itself, i really do, i mean 16 rounds of a (potentially) 200 grain .40 caliber bullet traveling 1200fps, or the man-stopper 135gr going 1550fps, plus the un-worldly reliability of the firearm design, and almost indestructible-ness of the space age polymer. Well its one down side is the size of the grip. you see i am a generally small guy, 5'7" 140lbs. I wear a size medium glove, but the grip is just flat out too large for my hands to shoot accurately. so i figure there's no point in owning a handgun i can't shoot well. So i considered the possibility of trading my G20 for something of equal or lesser value. My ideal trade would be for an older, used but High quality 5" 1911, or for a new but cheap (like a Springfield Milspec/G.I 1911A1 with a great warranty) model. I shoot 1911's really well and i love the platform, history, and design; It's actually my favorite pistol. in second place would be a ruger 4" GP100, (i have heard these things are absolute tanks) preferrably stainless steel as i dont like Ruger's blueing all that much. I have only held the GP100, and like the feel of it. So now all i have to do is locate these items for sale, and work out a trade for ma ole reliable. 10mm is expensive, and thats part of the reason i have only put 400rds through it in a year, but i chose the glock 20 because of its cartridge, being ballisticly superior than any other semi-auto handgun cartridge that is fairly available. So my fellow Glock owners, i am sorry for the betrayal. But if i were to have to defend myself or family from a person or animal, having this 20 in my hand wouldnt yield good results, i would just mame the attacker with the first shot, maybe even miss totally, so i am going to trade this great firearm for something i can actually shoot well. I have another handgun i forgot to mention, a 1954 Mint condition Cz52 7.62x25mm, i am pretty darn accurate with it, but ammunition in that caliber is even harder to find than 10mm, but not nearly as expensive, anyways a 58 year old handgun that shoots a small light-bullet going fairly fast is not my ideal future carry/home defense handgun.
