I consider Glock like a Honda or Toyota. They aren't the best, but they're reliable, affordable and consistent. Once, I wasn't a fan of Glock, but as time went on I warmed up to them as my wants changed. I no longer wanted to carry a $1,000 1911. I wanted a tool that I didn't mind if it got dinged up. That is what Glock is, a tool.
I am sure there are better options out there, but Glock works for me.
If you worry about a ding or wear on a 1911 or some other all metal pistol your really don't get it and your not really a gun person . Honest wear to a firearm is just fine and expected . I just don't want a gluck as I already had some years handling and shooting normal grip angle handguns and grip's that fill my hand better than flat slab sided glucks . Do glucks function well ! Sure outside of early 40sw and I am a 40sw guy .
I could just simply could care less about owning or carrying a gluck do to the grip design so I won't keep one . I rather own and carry a Steyr over a glock as the grip fills a hand nicely just has that odd grip angle .
I like a M&P in my hand and have several going back to 2006 and colt , firestar and s&w pistols before that I carried a early production P320c for 6 years but sold it as I have older same size model I like better but we do have a p365xl for when small is wanted . If I could justify buying another poly pistol it would be a 4" compact m&p not a gluck . I know many shooter that started with glocks or carried them as LE or Vet so there use to the design . For a poly pistol I would prefer a m&p 2.0 in my hand , not a gluck .
