    You can get replacement parts fast. No need to send it in like other makers.

    Quality, Reliability and Value! The Quality is apparent as soon as you put your hands on it. It's reliability is legendary and best of all are the prices. Even if you paid "to much" I believe that all Glocks are terrific value for the money.

    Low maintenance for the win. I like the reasonable price, the light weight, the high-capacity, the reliability, and the smooth contours that don't gouge me when carried IWB. The low cost of magazines and other spare parts is a plus also.

    What I really like the best about glocks is the tenifer metal treatment - between the polymer and tenifer I can carry it IWB day in and day out and not have to be worried at all about rust. And this is coming from a guy who made a stainless SP101 start to rust in about a month...

    All of the above and I'll add, the forums dedicated to them don't start out with threads reading "so I took my Glock to the range today and I didn't have the FTF, FTE, that so many talked about...


    Like I tell my son, they are almost boringly reliable.

    Most reliable gun for under or around $500.
