    Ever had a Glock that you fell in love with, but over time you couldn't master it?

    My Gen3 G27 was kinda like that.........

    I had good days and bad days at the range, but rarely had a Zen-like day with it.

    I traded it for a G26 Gen 4, and am much, much better with it!

    Gen 3 17L. I wanted to love it. Grip felt huge and I could shoot just as well with my 17.

    Glock 34 Gen3. We just don't seem to get along. I shoot the G26 a lot better. Have no idea why.

    Model 36. I love the feel of the gun and the way it shoots, but I don't trust it like I do the other models.

    I love all guns, not just the pretty ones. Never shot a gun I didn't like. Need more, more, more...........

    Yep, my G36...for me, liked the size and weight but it wasn't the most comfortable to shoot and it had multiple issues as well. I wish it would have worked out for me as I love me some Glock!

    Yep, GLOCK 19. It seems like one of the most loved GLOCKs on this forum, but just don't like them. On paper, size + weight + capacity, looks to be the perfect CCW gun.

    My first GLOCK was a G19 Gen 2. Many years later, I tried again with a Gen 3.

    Gen 3 G23. I didn't "fall out of love with it" but after I purchased a 26 and 30, both of which I like much better, it has ended up sitting on the shelf most of the time.

    I have owned 3 Glocks, the 17, 19, and 22. I loved the simple and robust design of these guns but I just never could learn to shoot them the way I wanted. Same thing with every other pistol I've shot or owned. I just cannot be consistently accurate. In fact, the only gun I am consistent with is my Ruger 10/22 and my mark 1 pistol to some extent.

    The G26 was the one I wanted to to love but never warmed up too.

    My Gen 3 G22. I wanted to love it. I learned to shoot it well. But, every 100-200 rounds I get a FTRTB. I've tried all types of factory ammo and new RSA's. But after 8,000 rounds, I just dont trust it and it's my HD weapon, so it needs to go.

    It will be sold and I'm going to try a Gen 4 G22. Maybe that will work.

    Glock 23 RTF2 I love the feel of the grip, but the texture was to rough for me to carry IWB. But I have to admit if it was Glock 19 RTF2 I would have kept it.

    G 36. I had no issues with it, and it was accurate and reliable, I just never really bonded with it?? Some things are just so subjective you can't really put them into words....

    My Model 27. I bought it with high hopes, and those hopes have been dashed. I just cannot shoot this pistol accurately and find the recoil horrible. I can't even sell the damn thing. 9 prospective buyers have shot it, and all said no thanks.

    It's not that I didn't like my gen 3 G27.
    And I can shoot respectably with it in 40.
    But in my hands it's no tack driver.
    I shoot much better with a 40-9mm conversion barrel in the gun.

    Then I sprang for the wamma jamma extended ported 357.
    The clouds parted and the angels sang.

    I only shoot 357 Sig now.
    And couldn't be happier.

    After shooting 9mm for years, and loving my Gen2.5 26, I bought a Gen4 27. I have shot a Gen4 23 plenty and really liked it. So, I bought a Gen4 27 to go with my 26.

    However, the 27 was a different story. I shot it ok, but felt that the 26 was more controllable for follow up shots, and was more accurate in my hands. I found my 27 a new home, and we're all happy now.

    BTW-Anybody want to buy some brand new, unused .40 mags? I have two 15 round G22 mags, and two 9 round G27 mags with Glock OEM +2 baseplates.
