I currently own 10 of those, 5 more that I've sold off that others currently own.

To the naysayers;
Does a WG P-series Sig feel better in my hand than a Glock?
It certainly does.
Do I shoot these Sigs better than my Glocks?
I certainly do not.
Go figure. Eek

If you really love them, why gripe about them?

I really don't understand after all the years of this thread why folks step in and rag on a brand of pistol that simply works, works and keeps working. Don't like them? Move on and find the perfect gal for you. Sheesh.

I didn't say they didn"t work for me. I said that I wish that Glock would make a more ergonomic grip. Do you have to be completely 100% satisfied with a gun in order to like it? You can't wish that something about it was different? Good lord, its really not that big of a deal.

Your exact words were "It's inexcusable for Glock to continue to handicap their pistols this way."

How many MILLIONS of people does it work for? Yet because you feel it should be different it's suddenly handicapping their (wildly successful) pistols?

You're right, it's not that big of a deal. If you don't like the grip of your own glocks, there are plenty of solutions to fix that. Aftermarket frames, aftermarket frame modifications, etc.

But to declare that Glock is 'handicapping their pistols' and that continuing to produce a highly successful model that works for the vast majority of their market is 'inexcusable' is flat out ridiculous.

You know, I realize you say this kind of tongue-in-cheek, but this is a perfect description of my years-long aversion to glocks, and I suspect many others are the same.

I own only a few guns now and I really like all of them and they run flawlessly.

1st Gen Kimber Classic 70 series
FN HiPower 9mm
Sig 228
442 SW
Walther PPK
Glock Gen4 19.

No question which I would keep above all others...
The Glock 19. Everything else is a compromise.

Apologies if I came across as pissy. Seriously. Occasionally, a post in this thread reminds me of the signature line of a member on another forum I post on...

"Glocks blow up, SIGs have a high bore axis, Beretta locking blocks break, Ruger is anti-gun, 1911s are unreliable, and HK hates you. Get over it."

Honestly, the grip area on my G30 doesn't feel as ergonomic as other brands. But man, she will run all day. I swear she occasionally whispers to me "I'll let you grasp my blocky butt, so long as you keep feeding me". Big Grin

No worries man. Shoot whatcha like! Smile

I think what people are saying is that the top end and mechanicals in a glock are top of the line. It's just that the ergos are from the 80's or early 90's.

I buy glocks and the first thing I have to do is whittle the underside of the trigger guard. My knuckle won't fit between that and the finger groove hump. Pushes my fingers on top of the humps instead of between them. My hand ar not large, I broke my middle finger and the knuckle is a bit swollen with arthritis, but fits my other pistols.

There is a whole cottage industry reducing, reshaping, and retexturing the most popular pistol on the market. One would think that Glock would see this and redesign the lower end of the pistol.

People would clamor over these and they could tack another $100 on them and call them "custom shop" pistols.

I really liked this whole post (some portions not copied here), but this part was really great (IMHO). I thought at some point, Glock would redesign the bottom portion somewhat (more than ambi & finger grooves). And yes...I might even pay a little more for for that.

At the same time...I still shoot Glocks a lot.

My first gun was a G19 gen3. I gave it to my sister.

Then I bought a G23 gen4 and sold it.

Then I bought a G19 gen4 and sold it.

Then I bought a G17 gen3 and sold it.

I am now the proud owner of a G34 gen4 and love it. I don't think I will sell it(...).

Picked up a new Gen4 G19. I didn't care for the 19 until I'd shot the 17 a bunch and the Gen 4 19 feels much better and different to me than the Gen 3 19.

Most definitely. For me too, the gen3 and gen4 19's are a night and day difference. The Gen3 always felt too big in the grip. The Gen4 is perfect.

Just got a Gen4 G26. I can tell I am going to put some mileage on this one.

I am down to 2 43's.1 Black on FDE frame and Black on Grey frame. I shoot them a little and they are awesome guns but the one i have absolutely fallen for is my Glock 40 10mm long slide. To date i have probably 2,000 rounds thru it. I have fired Sig 180 grain fmj,Sig 180 grain premium defense (both sig ammo types are VERY hot) Federal 180 grain FMJ, Blazer 200 grain FMJ, Federal 180 grain Hydra shoks, Sellier and Bellot 180 Grain FMJ, 200 Grain PMC FMJ's, 175 grain silvertips, and 1 box of Hornady 155 grain hollow points.
From hot ammo to real mild it does not miss a beat, very accurate and easy to shoot. The more mild stuff is like shooting 9mm.
10mm has become very plentiful and if you hunt for some deals i can make it affordable although it is still on the high side compared to .45 or 9mm.
The G40 is my favorite Glock and really fills a bunch of different roles.
