    After reading/contributing to the thread "Best Glock Crock" thread I wonder, what bothers Glock owners the most.

    If you dont own a Glock (because of choice not funds) or dislike them please dont chime in there will be another thread for you to chime into :supergrin:

    Number 1, along with crappy plastic sights. Also, they're not very ergonomic IMO. They are reliable, and durable as hell though.

    I would say #1. I went through this discussion with my wife's extended family about Glocks having no safety, reasons to even own one (or any pistol) yadda ya.

    I have several issues with Glock and their Generation 4 pistols. My four Gen4s (21, 22, 23 and 26) are flawless. However, my issues isn't with the performance of the Gen4 Glock. My issue is with the release of the other models. At this point it would be a very nice great if Glock released Gen4's for the 20, 29, 30 and 36 models. But, since they're not... I buy another set of golf clubs for now. Hopefully, I'll have the money to buy another pistol when more Gen4's are released. Nonetheless, I wouldn't bet on it as I have a school enrolling into college in August; home improvements are needed around the house; and I plan to golf at very nice golf courses. I'll happily spend my money else where since Glock is not willing to take my disposable income by offer more Gen4 models.

    Fanboys that would blindly follow Gaston off a cliff bother me the most. Other than that I love my Glocks!:wavey:

    :rofl:That's a great list.

    I would have to agree with Craig. The thing I can't stand the most are the Glock people who insist that any other pistol compared to the Glock is garbage, and go on further to include that Glock's never jam. It's always ammo or grip. Also, Gen3 purist's really grind my gears sometimes, as well as Gen4 whiner's. Don't get me started on the "a real gun is blued and walnut, weighs as much as a bowling ball, and only shoot's .45 ACP, as Saint JMB intended" type crowd. I respect different designs. The Glock has become my favorite for many reasons, but I like to see diversity, even if it's just different flavor's of Glocks! :cowboy:

    My choice is number 1,3,5.

    Bad info/myths cause people to take aftermarket crap that doesn't work and put it on/in their Glock which results in it being unreliable.

    But then, there's also #8.....nothing on a Glock needs to be polished.

    Grips..they don't fit my hand as well as other brands.

    Low maintenance, durability, reliable and good price point helps compensate for fit, but would be nice if it didnt feel like I was holding a 2x4.

    Probably #1 and #2 bug me the most. I can't stand when people hate on Glocks for not having an external safety. :upeyes: Just keep your frickin' finger off the trigger, that's all you have to remember! I'm no fanboy, but I don't think Glock deserves all the negativity that comes their way. Oh well, I'm used to dealing with haters. I shoot Glocks and drive Hummers. :tongueout:

    No external safety is what I like about the Glocks. In a stressfull situation - like a gun battle I don't want to try and remember to take off the safety.

    It's bad enough they have crappy plastic sights, but what is with the unintuitive cup and ball? Stock glock sights are crappy. (I believe)

    Lack of inovation, the only major change has been the gen 4 and that hasn't worked out to well.
    Look at the other mfgs coming out with single stack thin CCW Pistols such as XDs,M&P Sentinel,Rugers LC9 & Kimber Solo.
    I have always stayed with Glock only because they were so reliable.

    Yup, it's a matter of opinion.....and everyone has one.

    Myself, I LIKE the 'crappy plastic sights', the white dot front and white outline rear work very well for me, and I've won a LOT of matches with them.

    Granted, they aren't as durable as steel sights, but they are cheap and easy to replace. Steel sights are also damaged by abuse, but they are much more expensive, and often harder to replace.

    Certain pistols I hear have a better feel in hand. My main complaint is the big *** backstrap hump. Just wish they would fit in the hand better.

    Aside from all the gen4 and newer gen3 failures not much else to complain about. Everyone else has just made their own variant of the glock and claimed a revolution. They look pretty but how different are they really?
