Perhaps I should have said inexpensive. Because that is what I think has driven the popularity of the guns. The same reason Fords out sell Porches. Their popularity and price point has actually forced other manufacturers to lower their prices. (Just check out the price reductions on HKs)
There is no question that they are reliable and well made. Now get off my case, I just don't like em.
I have "a few" guns & Glocks aren't exactly my favourite handguns, but the 19 or 19x get carried almost daily. They're fat, ugly things, but they're light, inexpensive, tolerant of being run dirty & without much lube, they're reliable....and to be honest, I shoot the Glocks about as well as my Sigs or semi-custom 1911s.

Honestly as good a gun as I believe Glocks are they have crept up in price where I believe their value proposition isn’t what sells them as much as their well deserved reputation.
They ain’t so much a cheap gun anymore especially after replacing the dovetail protectors.
What they have is DECADES of long proven reliability and that and huge aftermarket support make them almost a no brainer for the “I just want one gun person”. Hell every gun person should own at least one Glock. Should be an ATF bylaw.

I thought these threads were for anybody that wished to contribute, pro or con. Guess not, you can have the thread.
Listen, I can't help you with your latent Glockosexuality. Looking back through your posting history, you have a dozen or more posts in this thread. You say you don't like Glocks but you keep showing up in this thread. Now, get your head screwed on straight and stop trying to attract attention to yourself.
I would say that, regarding any forum you like, it's a bad idea to show your ass in a thread started by the forum owner.

Still contemplating a G48, at $449 it's hard to pass up.
