    Are you talking about 'coming out'? If so, I don't see a problem with it. Go ahead and do so, if you are so inclined, but know that not everybody is in need of that sort of pacifier. Most of us don't like that sort of thing.

    I have glocks and numerous colt 1911's. But my first and true pistol love is for K frame Smith and Wessons in 357 magnum

    While most of my defensive pistols bear the Glock name, I have other pistols that I enjoy carrying and shooting. Really liked the CX P07 but just rather not have a pistol that has da/sa trigger. Now I have the Sig P320 RX with the Romeo sight. Really enjoy shooting it and with older eyes, hitting better as well.

    Everyone should have a couple of Glocks but in lieu of them I also like Sig, S&W, Colt among others.

    I'm really liking my M&P 2.0 compacts and have been shooting my revolvers lately---a lot

    My Glocks aren't going anywhere but they are getting used far less these days--and my Ruger carbines are set up for Glock mags.

    M&P 2.0’s. I dig’em, and will be adding more. Not selling my Glocks though.

    Clean Kill??? Powder trails are a son of a gun to track in the dark.

    Haven't really carried a Glock in a few years. Although, I do qualify with my G30S annually my G23 and the G30S don't leave the house. My carry for the last few years is a DW 1911 in 10mm. I just purchased a CZ P-01 just cuz....

    The 10mm glocks and the 18 is nice.

    Imo, there are better guns other then the ones I mentioned.

    In the world of competition shooting, I made the switch this past year to the Sig P320 X5. In terms of EDC, a Glock still rides on my hip.

    I like Glock. But, I also like H&K, and Sig Sauer too. There are certain Smith & Wesson pistols I like, and certain Colt's as well. In years past, I have owned a wide variety of pistols, but have downsized to very few in the last couple of years.

    If I had to pick a non-Glock as a favorite, it would be either an H&K, or a Sig Sauer. Honestly, if I had to choose one of those three as a favorite, Glock falls dead last with the other two being a coin toss for me.

    The local range/gun store has an entire cabinet full of SIG's, then they also have another cabinet over half full of CZ's.
    Gives me something to look at when I'm waiting in line to pay the range fee for shooting my GLOCK.

    For me, Glock is the "in lieu of".

    Sig and Beretta. Nothing wrong with a Glock, just not for me.

    Why would you want to shoot a Glock ?

    What did it do to you? Is it still alive ?

    If I absolutely had to replace my G23, I'd say my second choice would be Springer XD. I really dig my old XD40, it's a very close second to my G and, XDs enjoy nearly the same support as far as holsters etc go. I've had a bunch of XDs in different flavors and I liked them all, just not enough to knock Glocks off the top step.
    I'm going to check (czech) out a P07 in 40 this week so, that ranking might all change.
