    Here's a good read from a person named Glock Killer:

    Sooner or later, you all would subdue to the perfection of what is known as the GLOCK. I expect him to be joining the good ppl of glocktalk very soon (if he hasn't already)

    I love my g27 and g35 (only two glocks I will own) and think they are a good handgun but I don't think they're the cure for cancer by a long shot. Congrats on glock killer on a g19 though.

    Can't argue w/ you there. But reliability goes a long way. I had to find out the hard way. I bought a XDm-40 as my CC gun awhile back and became very disappointed rather quickly. First time at the range, ftf's after ftf's. Thought it just needed to be broken in. But as hundreds upon hundreds of rds went by, still the same ftf's. Can't depend my life on it. So I got rid of it and got a G19. Never failed me once. I've only seen my glock jam twice, but it was because the shooters (not me) limp wristed the hell out of it. I understand that glocks aren't limp-wrist friendly.

    I had a Glock 19, I liked it, didn't love it. It was reliable as hell and the most user-friendly and maintentance-free gun I have ever owned. I traded it for a SIG P226. While a great gun it just wasn't for me.

    People that don't like Glock don't know much about guns. :)

    Of the Glocks I've shot I dislike the G19 the least.

    Even though I don't like Glocks, I do recomend the G19 to people that can't or won't take the time to learn to shoot well or stay in practice. The thing is about as simple a point and shoot gun as you can get.

    I think of it as a ugly high capacity DA revolver.:supergrin:

    I like Glock. There are many of attractions of Glock that I enjoy. Light for duty carry, easy to clean, lots factory/after market parts to make your Glock to be anything you want, inexpensive and dead on reliable.

    However, I also learn to enjoy other pistols and I don't think Glock is end all pistol.

    People who make comments such as yours don't know much about anything.

    Why don't you omit the asinine comments and try to contribute meaningfully to this forum?

    I had a G17 when they first came out. At the time I was into metal frames like Smiths and Rugers.
    I looked down at the glock, and sold it to my brother.
    Since then I got a kick out of listening to the glock boys talk about their guns, the wanna be special forces, the rappers.
    Glock to me was a joke.

    Recently I got a G19 on a whim. Turns out it is the nicest shooting 9mm I have. I absolutely love the trigger, and the simplicity. The tennifer and the trigger are the best part.
    So I have definitely been converted, I love my 19 and will never part with it.
    One of the most useful 9mm's ever made in my opinion.

    This is the wrong forum for this. Kool-aid posts belong in General Glocking.

    I do love my G19. Glocks in general are very reliable, and easy to shoot. That being said, they arent my favorite. If I were of the mindset of Glocks being the alpha and omega of handguns, I would only own a G19 and possibly a G26, instead of around 50 or so handguns. But Glocks do what they are designed to do wonderfully. They are the AKs of handguns, IMO. And thats a compliment, and a curse.

    There are plenty of Glock owners and prior Glock owners that aren't impressed.

    Explain that.

    My G17 is a keeper. The ergos are some of the worst of any production pistol.....but, it is reliable.

    I have other firearms that are reliable.

    Glock isn't better, it's "as good" as some of the other guns it competes with.

    While glocks are awesome, I don't really care for this Glock Killer and his knee jerk reactions to everything. First he is, "oh this Glock 17 doesn't feel good in my hands, so I'm going to hate on them and even make a clever username like Glock Killer hehe." Then the second time he holds and actually shoots a glock, he changes his tune to, "wow I actually shot one and didn't suck with it. So now I'm going to buy two and should change my username to something that compliments glock like Glock Alternative hurhur."

    Why is this in General Firearms?

    There's quite a few more Kool-Aid drinkers in General Glocking. :rofl:

    Well said hog.

    I like Glocks also, but I see nothing about them that tells me they're any better than the other plastic fantastics of today.

    In fact, I like some of the others more. :dunno:

    :animlol:

    Actually, I think its the other way around. I'd venture to say that 90% of the General Glocking crowd doesn't know the first thing about guns or even Glocks.
