    Is it that it feels so good in your hand whether you're simply holding it or firing it? Is it that the recoil feels so light for the caliber? Is it that you don’t have to worry about touching it and putting your fingerprints on the shine because it shines on its own? What is it about a Glock?

    They just fit and work soo good! I enjoy when people complain abou the grip/angle because it does not fit like a 1911, XD, Sig...etc. Glock designed it that way for a reason. They finally caved with all the whinning with the 4th gen imo.

    It's in its utility - the inescapable recognition by your mind's eye that this is something just so right and effective in its intended purpose and design that it is inherently beautiful. It's like symetry in nature that you don't really notice, you just sense it. Or like the synergy in a symphony where the whole is so clearly more than the sum of its parts, but would be utterly lacking if even one part were missing. It is what it is, simply, and anything else would be something less. Hence, 'Glock Perfection'. Just my thoughts on it.

    I still prefer it in it's original form, the way Wilhelm Bubbits designed it. It was best in it's original form before others began tampering with it.

    IMO...there's no single factor that makes a Glock more desirable than quite a few other handguns. What makes a Glock so desirable to me is the combination of attributes that together make it a highly effective utility pistol.

    The frames except for the G21/G20 frames fit my hand great and they go bang no matter what, very light with high capacity and legendary reliability all for $500.00 what's not to love. Glock is the working class hero of firearms:wavey:

    Some people have told me I am a good shot. Tell them it seems like the Glock shoots itself. Go figure.

    You must be a "natural". It takes quite a bit of practice for some of us to master the Glock trigger.

    I like the OD. If Glock would commit to building it in Gen 4 I would wait for the OD to come out.

    They work and are about as simple to work on as a pistol can get. I like knowing if I have to replace a part I can order a factory one and not have to worry about doing any filing or fitting.

    I REALLY like the fit & finish of the Sig P250, and was debating between that & the 27 I just picked up to replace my 26. However, I KNEW the 27 would be durable & dependable, and so it was an easier decision for me...
