Only the 17, 19, and 26

The .40SW and .45 are mediocre calibers to buy a Glock for, or at all.

The 10mm, .357Sig are special snowflakes and you'd do better showing your uniqueness with other brands of guns in these calibers

The 42 and 43 are pants are head retarded.

>>28479590
>implying other brands of guns can handle 10mm
Well STi might

>>28479624

Neither can the Glock

You've got to buy an aftermarket barrel for it, because the factory barrel is very picky about the ammo you put through it.

This guy is right. Glock is clearly doing something right otherwise Springfield, Smith and Wesson and Ruger wouldn't have spent millions of R&D dollars (or in springfield's case, buy the HS2000) to make guns specifically designed to "beat" Glock. Anyone who says anything other than "they're not my taste but they're reliable" is lying to themselves and to you

Don't listen to them.

Get a Beretta 92fs

you'll enjoy knowing you won't have to worry about losing a hand every time you shoot. plus your gun won't look like a blocky piece of shit
>>
>>28479350
They're arguably the best value and most reliable you can get. They're accurate too.

>>28479557
Not him and really nothing however:
1. For some reason I get a little trigger bite on the gen 4. No clue why it would be any different and its' slight.
2. When the gen 4 first came out the springs were a tiny big too stiff in the midsize guns like the Glock 23. Glock had gone to a dual captive spring on those like what they had always used on their subcompact guns and calibrated them for full power carry loads. So people would shoot light range loads in them and they'd jam. Glock fixed it by releasing a slightly lighter recoil spring.

4 things to a gun being good:
1. Reliability, no gun is more reliable than a Glock.
2. Accuracy, Glocks have good theoretical accuracy but you have to understand the difference between theoretical accuracy and real world accuracy. Theoretical accuracy is the gun clamped in a bench rest. Glock is as good as more expensive guns. I want to say, but may be wrong, that it's like a 4" spread at 50 yards, same as an HK. However, this does not account for quality of trigger, quality of sights, grip angle, recoil management or anything relating to how the user is actually able to interact with the gun. Many people feel that a single action trigger on a more vertical grip angle allow them to shoot more accurately. I put a 3.5lb connector in my Glock and smoothed up the internals a bit. It shoots well for me.
3. Ease of ownership, by that I mean availability of part and holsters and mags. No gun compares to Glock on this front purely do to Glocks massive market share. I think value should also be a part of this.
4. Service life, basically, being able to shoot a bunch of rounds through the gun without signs of it wearing out. Glocks polygonal rifling and hard treatments hold up very well to extended use and the steel inside a slightly flexible polymer frame lasts for like fucking ever.

Glock is good.

is a civic a good car?
>>
>>28481399
Original owner of a 1999 civic here. Bought it when I was 17 with a $4000 down payment I saved up mowing lawns and working at kmart.

I'm 33 now, still drive the same car. Nearly 200,000 miles. Not 1 mechanical failure other than a computer that bugged out at about 70,000 miles and made the car keep stalling at idle. Took it to the dealership and they swapped in a new one on the same day free of charge, still under warranty.

The only other problem is that I sometimes have to jiggle the switch on the ceiling dome light to get it to turn on.

My friends give me shit for driving the same car I had in high school as a 33 year old, but at this point I'm attached to it. Driven it to both the east and west coast on road trips. Been camping in the rocky mountains with it.

It may not be cool, but it is still 100% dead fucking reliable and has never let me down.

My glock is pretty reliable too.
>>
>>28479881
>Will not look like a blocky piece of shit.

No, but it will feel like a chunky one.
>>
I sold my Glock 17, nothing wrong with it, it just... Got no soul, I don't smile when I look at it. It's a well functioning appliance. Also the plastic lower front end curved upwards and it bugs me to no end.
>>
>>28481454
>>
>>28481521
Actually no. The paint is in pretty rough shape because I don't park it away from other people. Over the course of 17 years it has acquired a shit ton of door dings and chips.

I change the oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles and do standard maintenance. That's it. My car looks like a 17 year old Honda Civic.

Meanwhile my best friend is buying a new tranny on his 4 year old F-150 that never towed anything...

I'm not a glock fan at all, but yes they are good guns. They are reliable, affordable, great capacity, great aftermarket.

That said, I hate their grip angle and sights. They're also thick as fuck, thicker than my USP Tactical and my usp compact 45. Still, I kinda want a G26 and maybe a g17.
>>
>>28481929
The angle is interesting, coming from 1911s and Sig P series my Glock 17 did point high for me. I later learned the idea was it forced you to lock your wrist down so the slide recoiled in line with your forearm instead of over it.

Since then it has actually become my favorite handgun to shoot. Kind of funny that I'd rather take the $500 tupperware out instead of the more expensive guns.

Before you can decide weather or not a glock is for you, you have to ask yourself a question.

>Am I a limp wristed libreal, woman, cock guzzling fagot, or all of the above?

If so, the glock is your gun. Pic related.

In all seriousness get a sig. They make their guns out of metal, not shitty plastic like glock. The glock watches in envy as sig fucks his wife. Sigs are much more reliable and will kill around 2 times the amount of people with the same amount of clips, scientifically proven in Germany.
>>
>>28481553
Someone has never shot a glock! ....Or is a moron.

Glocks are good. I have a G27 and I switch it out with my 1911 fullsize for summer carry.
Sigs are good too
And SA Xd are pretty nice.
I love pretty much every gun.
>>
Glawks is good. The Honda Civic of guns. But there's other good options for the same price out there. Any polymer/striker pistol from a reputable manufaturer will be just as good as a glock. More of a preference thing. I hate people that buy glock just cause its a glock and cause they cant name any other guns. Its the gun that everyone and their mother knows about.

I wasn't a fan of glocks until I borrowed my dad's 10mm. It just feels right. I'm also interested in the G41 which i believe is the longer barrel possibly ported(?) If anyone has any info on that one.
>>
>>28479350
worst part about a Glock is that they have unique ergonomics and once you get used to holding, aiming, and shooting it Glock is pretty much all you'll ever shoot again. If you already have other handguns that you like to shoot then I don't recommend a Glock. If you want to get a Glock as a first handgun but plan on buying others then I still don't recommend the Glock. If you wanna get a Glock and plan on committing to that specific platform forever then yes, get a Glock
>"Glocks don't jam"
Owned one. It jammed. Hated that fucking thing. Worked well enough and to its credit the pistol was very accurate but their ad of "Glock: Perfection" is really a huge stretch. They're a good utilitarian gun. Not worth buying a new one but if you find a used one at a good price then by all means get it.
>>
>>28479350
They're good for their intended purpose, and they'll go bang when I pull the trigger, that's all that really matters in the end.
>>
>>28479638
>very picky
Wrong. The only single kind of ammo you might have problems with is hard cast 10mm. Even then, it takes hundreds of rounds and trips to the range without cleaning to cause shavings to damage the rifling. My 20 Gen 4 and Gen 3 both eat 10mm of all makes all day long without so much as the slightest problem.

In the current year, Glocks are a very average gun with a very expansive aftermarket. Something that will forever be this guns saving grace. Every other reputable maker now has a gun on par with them.
The VP9 is the next step for pistols. I hope glock incorporates the slide ears and grip panels.

>The 10mm, .357Sig are special snowflakes and you'd do better showing your uniqueness with other brands of guns in these calibers

The 10mm glocks are the best 10mm out there unless you're ready to drop $1500+ on a 1911.

Glocks number one thing they did right is selling that motherfucker to every police agency possible. Fuck if the normal cop knows what it does besides go bang and that it holds more rounds than his revolver,they just knew that they were getting one. On a departmental level they were getting a killer deal to switch over from their old guns. Huge user base all with a fairly distinctive boxy shape and it became the go to gun for millions

I'm all grown up now and on my third brand new car purchase. However, in college I had a 1990 civic hatchback. To this day I think that was the best engineered, built and fun to own car that I've ever had. Four new tires installed cost me $128 thanks to the 13" wheels. The four speed manual transmission was godlike. I learned to drive a manual in that car and never tore it up.
I got my first blowjob in that, went camping with that car, picked my drunkfriends up in that car, got good mileage on that car and the whole time it never failed, never faltered and never disappointed me.
The oil was easy to change, the plugs were easy to change, as we're the wires, preventative maintenance was easy, cheap and fun. It didn't have much power but felt great at its top speed of 110mph which I did from time to time.
I can't speak for all civics but the 1990 hatch is a damn good car.

What's wrong with any of them? They all function flawlessly. They had fat grips and are heavy because they have so many rounds, but they are great guns. I carried a gen 3 Glock 23 for about 10 years.
>>
Few improvememts I'd make. Steel three dot sights, sf/gen iv being stock grip size, three magazines for all gens, full picatanny rail like on the limited G21 release, steel guide rod, hijack the alpha wolf barrel design. With some improvements Glock could shit all over the competition and take back some of the LEO ontracts. Problem would be keeping simikar price point with added development cost. I like them but also enjoy the old Ruger P series

You're right about then being reliable but not everyone's taste (for numerous reasons), but what glock does right is marketing and availability. Everyone has heard the name glock, so the other manufacturers make a "glock killer". This isn't because glock is the gold standard, although they are just fine handguns, this is because they're widely known.

Good post nonetheless.
>>
For the most part Glocks aren't really my thing. My dad has a gen1 17 he's had figuratively forever, and I always felt it was kind of soulless.

But I really really want a 17L. Those things look sweet as fuck. I just moved so I need to get my new ccp, and I really want to show up to the class with a 2 foot long gun.
>>
Glocks are great if you like the triggers and grip angle. My dad hates glocks for their triggers and can't shoot my 34 well because of it. Give him a revolver with a smooth trigger and he can drive tacks.

>>28485516

You can get a glock 40. Glock 17L are kind of hard to find.

I want it in 9mm. I sold all the rest of them to fund moving, and I'd like to have at least 1 gun in that caliber. I looked into conversions and shit, and couldn't find any 6" kits.

Exactly my point

You're losing 4 rounds for a marginally smaller gun.

There is no point in carrying a 43. Anywhere you can carry a 43, you can carry a 26 just as easily.

It'd be different if the 43 was the same size as the 42

What holster are you using

They are identical in a stealthgear onyx holster, which is my gold standard for iwb

If the weight is that sensitive for you, then I guess it would work

The 43 is a better gun than the Shield, but it has very little going for it if you compare it to the 26

its a single stack glock. so it remove ammo capacity for more comfortable grip. except its a subcompact self defense/CC gun where putting max rounds on target quickly is the name of the game i.e. retarded.

Well, the 26 is essentially a 19 if you use the magazine extension.

If you're going to do comps, and want a Glock, get the 17L

if your willing to spend $5-600 on a full size gun go with a CZ 75-B if your going for a CCW ie carried often and scene/shot rarely then glock is fine. it doesn't matter if its an ugly box when its concealed all of the time.

I'm the guy you replied to, but yeah I have never liked shooting them, and I've shot a bunch of their models. I'd consider G26 for my gf, or a g17 for a "a pistol for whomever happens to need one" kind of deal.

I think the gf prefers the P2000sk though, which is basically HK's version of the g26
>>
Glocks are good. I've got 4 pistols, a Glock 19 gen 4, a Glock 20 gen 4, an FNX45 and a Shield 9mm.

I think Glock is the best.

I carry the 20 in high crime areas with a crossbreed supertuck holster and Speer gold dot 180gr 1350ft/sec bonded JHP from underwood ammo.

I carry the Glock 19 during cold times of year with a comp tac minotaur holster and Speer gold dot +p 1225ft/sec 124gr bonded JHP.

I carry the shield during summer, with a crossbreed minituck and same ammo as above.

And the FNX is home defense.
