What always amazes me are the folks who vehemently hate Glocks. The tool, not the man or the company.

I get there are hundreds if not more choices that are just as good if not better in many ways then Glocks. That being said to be an educated gun person and not give the Glock pistol it's well earned due seems silly.

I don't love my Glocks. I much prefer my HKs but every time I run a Glock I marvel at its nonsense simplicity. It is the epitome of a weapon. Sure you adapt to it but at the end of the day whether or not you personally want to use a Glock doesn't take away from the fact that it is damn near the Winchester rifle/colt SAA of our time.

Point is why post in the Glock thread why you don't want one?

I have moved away from them, personally, but I still haven't seen a gun introduced to this day that meets and checks all the boxes the average Glock 9mm does as a martial tool.

I submit if John Browning were alive today he would be sharing notes or at least paying close attention to that curtain rod making sumbitch.

But hey keep on hating. I don't particularly like the damn things either hence I only have 4 of them. Frown

As an aside holy crap this thread has been here longer than I have. Wow. Do the math. That is a company who is giving the customer what they want. So they have a few years to catch up to beretta but in the internet world impressive non the less. Smile

I've found that the haters hate only because those that prefer our Glocks are so adamant about it.
That gives them a reason to despise the Glock platform.

I realize some of the Glock**** fanboys have ruined our reputation, but as cslinger stated, it is hard to beat something that simply works.

YMMV...

Glocks are cheap, mags are cheap, they are reliable, they are easy to strip and clean, they require very little lube, they're light, short reset triggers, they are very effective at speed with some training, and I've found that with good sights and some frame work (remove the finger humps and recontour), I shoot them at 15-25 yards nearly as well as many of my much more expensive pistols (high end 1911's, P210, X5, etc)

The past 6 months or so, I'm only buying Glocks. I've owned Glocks since 2001 - sometimes just a couple, sometimes half a dozen or more. I've done multi-day shoot classes with them, I carry a Glock daily.

Are there nicer pistols? Sure. More beautiful, nicely finished, and entertaining pistols to shoot? Yup.

Are any of those measurably "better" for any objective mission I may have for a handgun? Nope. Worse, in fact, in many instances. I'm not interested in beating the hell out of my now-unobtanium Custom Shop P210 Legend Target, or carrying my Mk. 23, or keeping a $4,000 1911 as a nightstand gun, or sweating on it in 100 degree summer heat either.

I've got a lot of pistols I want to own, but the G19 (or G30SF) is the one I *need* to own.

Wasn't gonna chime in, but...
I have shot damn near every "new" Glock out there. Spent a bunch of time at the range recently with a Glock rep, shooting everything he had. From that little 9mm single stack to the 10mm. Shot nice half dollar size groups. 2-3 inches high. The Glock guy explained why that happens. I don't care about any of that. I still don't like them. I had a 27 for awhile. Great gun. I hated it. Hate Porches and white cats too. Just no reason for it.

I love Sigs but still go back to the Glocks to me they just feel right , have a Gen 4 17 and Gen 3 19 I shoot Sigs better but I like Glock triggers . I found a mint G37 gap for 299 and almost got but a friend took it . I did pick up 2 Sig 320s the full size and a L/E package compact since Jan. The Glocks got a break.

I like Glock's, have several of them, they fit in for me for different reasons, but I also have Sig's HK's Walther's, colt's, Smiths & Wesson's, Kahr's FNH's Kimber's,Ruger's I have my favorites, but love them all, and stay proficient with them all, some are range guns, and some are part of my EDC Rotation, life is good, give any one of my guns, and I'm a happy guy..

I used to own a handful of Glocks. Iterated through a G22 (until I realized I hated .40), a G19, a G17.

I just picked up a G20 Gen4 a couple nights ago. The G20 has been on my list for probably close to 15 years.

I expect a G19Gen4 and G26Gen4 will be there too, eventually, and I'm going to nudge my wife in the direction of a G17 Gen4 to replace her little single-stack Walther. (Longer sight radius and those couple ounces more weight should help her with felt recoil.)

^ I don't like stippling, BUT that is the most awesome stippling job I've ever seen. Eek

That looks like a Ferrari to me... Wink


Stipple was done my Matt at 5B Gunworx, Slide was done by Jagerwerks. Very happy with both in form and function. The Radius serrations on the front of the slide have made a huge improvement in my ability to manipulate the slide. The re-contouring of the frame really makes a difference and one handed shooting as far as grip improved.

Still one of my least favorite polymer guns but will never get rid of my G26. Always goes bang. Dead on accurate. Will probably work when all others fail.

Just bought a gen 3 G29. Go figure.

My story...4 decades, 200+ handguns, owning most brands multiple calibers for a variety of reasons. I own mostly what I carry. What I carry is for Home Defense as well.
I now own less than 10 handguns... that said... A GLOCK will always be an option for me even if it has to be the ONLY option..

Well at least it's probably a safer thing than this:



Some of the stippling work out in the wild...well, it's out there.

Newest edition to the family. I LOVE the RMR!!!!



For ME:
DA/SA= Sig 9mm
Striker fired= Glock 9mm
If it's a .45= 1911
Suppressed= HK in .45
I like anything in 10mm

That basket weave look,looks phenomenal. I also like the look of he 'Punisher' logo on the grip.It looks very clean,especially the logo. Whoever did that work is very talented.

Very nice. I'm doing the same thing, you're just a bit ahead of me. Nice to see a gen 1 17 in there. I badly want a 17L in the stable, and I know a 26 will have to happen at some point.

Well I shot my new (and first) Glock yesterday. G20.

Took it out of the box, loaded up the three mags, and shot 45 rounds quickly, at about 10 yards. Pretty good accuracy for the first time. Placed them all in a salad plate-sized area of the target. No hiccups at all. Now to buy some 200 grain FMJ Underwood loads for woods-carry. Good to go.

gundawg :
I've seen 4 dozen photos of stippling done by 5b gunworks,
but have not seen the particular design you posted, anywhere.

Did you request that pattern , specifically ?

did they offer it to you with a pattern name?

Tons of photos of it on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/5BGunWorx/

It's their "Basketweave" pattern. Seems to be their most popular pattern, based on the number of times it shows up in their photos.

Here are all 11 of the standard stippling patterns available from them: https://www.facebook.com/media...2731106627222&type=3
