Of course and do own one. I would consider any firearm that is originally designed for military use. You know the military will run various tests to ensure it is rugged, reliable and in most all environmental conditions. Knowing that your firearm is going to work is what counts above all else.

I can predict the future!

(I can also predict the past, but no one seems to care about that)

LOL!!! So true Smile

Some Glocks come & go ... but I'm not giving up my Gen2 G19 or G43!

No new Glocks to brag about, I've been in a CZ mood lately!

I picked up a 2005 NOS CZ 75 TS a few weeks ago in 40 and its an amazing shooter! 2.5 pound trigger, full length dust cover and the slide is so smooth feels like it's on ball bearings; double stack mag holds 16 so it's not exactly a CCW Smile I also fit a 9mm barrel to it, the standard mag for it holds 20, it's built for competition and came with 2 extra safety's and 2 slide release's in different contours, 2 extra extractors and 2 snap caps ... all factory!

I don't have large hands but the feel made me want another so I found a 75B also in SA only (most are DA/SA)and its in-bound. It has a 5-6 pound SA trigger out of the box but it can be "worked on". The 75 isn't plastic, but they feel good in my hand and they make me look good shooting them; very accurate right out of the box Wink

I don't buy for investment but quality holds its value; I don't sell or trade my Colts, Kimbers, SiG's or HK's and I have a feeling these CZ's will enjoy my safe for a long time as well!


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

I've NEVER wanted a glock because I didn't like the way it felt in my hand and years ago I started with a Blackhawk and hi power clone and then sigs. I've always known how great a weapon it is and recommended it to friends to check out. I have now decided I NEED a glock 19 but can't make up my mind what gen to get. There is an indoor range near me that rents the gen 4 19 so hopefully in the next couple days I can get a chance to try it out and then bring one home.


It's kids like you, who make this bus late.

Yeah, I have Glocks. Several Glocks. So what.
Yesterday I bought a Sig...a plastic Sig...a P320C FDE 9mm and I love it too. In fact I might love it more. Only a few thousand rounds will tell for sure.

You seem confused.

http://sigforum.com/eve/forums...710039423#4710039423

Did you forget that you posted in this thread more than 4 years ago? And now you come into it like a defiant FNG.

It could be dementia. You should have that checked out- if you can remember to do so.

Fix your avatar, please.

Of course I posted here years ago, and it just seemed appropriate again so I did. With 448 pages of posts you’d expect some to revisit on occasion. No memory loss, dimentia, or remorse either. In fact I’m rather proud of my little P320. Is that so bad?

To me, this sounds like someone looking for a confrontation. It seems awfully odd in light of your other post in this thread.

I was being light hearted, in fun and keeping with the theme. No confrontational intent at all. I don’t understand your response at all.

If you read through the thread, you'll see people coming into it to say stupid stuff, either not realizing the whole damn thing is a joke, or ignoring that. Your post looked like another one of those.

Instead of relinquishing your membership here, try seeing it from my side.

But I thought I was taking it as a joke, and making a joke of it and within the theme. I enjoy this forum and get a lot from the posts. Obviously I don’t post much but I read a lot and very often. I was a little put off by your reaction, just don’t understand it and honestly had a strong reaction but thought better of it. I have been a member for 14 years after all. Let’s just lighten it up and get along, ok?

I have owned many Glocks over the years. (I'm sure I may have even posted in this thread at some pint...)

There are now some really great options to the Glock, and I'm learning to warm to the CZ line...

But the gun I still carry into harms way at work is a Glock 17 or 19...

Actually the point is that I, like many others, have completely accepted the Glock’s attributes into our safes. What is remarkable is that I was able to purchase a polymer-framed, striker-fired Sig Sauer pistol and that I like it very much. That is quite a departure from the traditional alloy-framed Sig with some variant of a double-action trigger and hammer firing mechanism. There, plainly stated without any attempt at humor or perceived contention I trust.

This medium does not allow us to hear voice inflection or see facial cues beyond emoticons and internet shorthand, so it's like looking through a drinking straw, at best. It's difficult to get to know someone when they post infrequently.

You need to work on your stand-up routine. Punch it up some. Maybe use props, like Carrot Top. Err, that is to say, Carrot Top uses props, not that he himself is one.

Maybe he is, I don't know.

I had a G20 about 12 years ago and sold it. At the time I didnt like the ergos and trigger and was so so with it.

I told people I respected them but they weren't for me as I didnt like the ergos and they pointed high. I didnt like the spongy trigger.

Somehow last night however I found myself in the LGS purchasing a G19 Gen 4. I then took it out today and shot a 297/300 with no practice.

I dont know if its the backstraps or if my tastes have changed or I've just become a better shooter and can adapt better to more platforms but I compared it to, I imagine, an annoying array (for the poor LGS guy) of other guns I was far more familiar with and it just came out on top.

Figured it was time to enter this thread and fess up. I bought a Glock.
