THE 10,000th REPLY TO THE THREAD
I also thought I would never own a Glock too.
But it only took until a few years after my first SIG to get one.
In 2004 I think I got my Glock 32 which has been a treasured companion on everything from my backup when hog hunting(with FMJs) to also being a great carry gun.
My Glock 32 is a Gen 3 and it suffered a catastrophic failure after about 3500 rounds of .40/.357.
The locking block (think that's the name) that the recoil spring/guide rod comes back into broke free from the frame while shooting Winchester Ranger .40 S&W 165 grain JHP (pretty hot stuff IIRC)
The round that was fired exited the barrel.
I then noticed that the back of the slide was sitting beyond the back of the frame.
Fortunately, this happened at the range and not during some kind of defensive encounter.
It has made me always check my carry gun early for maintenance.
It didn't however make me think Glock's were junk.
The range immediately sent it to Glock and I swear it was back in better than perfect shape in a week, I think they at least changed every internal, maybe just an entirely new frame IDK.
The failure I attributed to using higher pressure duty ammo for training with .357SIG and .40 rounds.
I don't know if anyone else with a Glock likes or even knows what a Hip Clip is but I love them best non-holster/holster ever....
I had bought a G29 a few years ago but I wasn't too impressed with it which I had brought up recently, so I traded it....for a G30 ...the thing is I have read the slide's are slightly different and they have different extractors and I wanted another dedicated .45 ACP...
Something about Glock makes you just want to use them hard and put them away wet.
I would also agree not to put any Glock in a safe.
You'll need it as your nightstand gun .
The safe is for your collections of Coins, Gold, Silver, old SIG's, star wars figurines etc.
The only Glock I have is a G26 I bought in 2010. I recently discovered it had became obsolete so I visited my local gun store, The Kentucky Gun Company, to see what they had. My plan was to purchase a Gen 5 G19 but the only ones I saw in stock were the 22lr version and a used G17. I left without getting anything but there was a Cz p-01 that has been haunting me since. May just pick that up on the impulse and satisfy the itch until the Glock inventory returns to normal.
Yeah, it's been known to happen.

I said the same thing for many years. Nope, not me, never! No Plastic Eurotrash grip angle Glocks in my safe.
My employer just made the switch to Glock. I was issued, and qualified on my new gun. Surprise surprise, damn thing was a great!
I dropped by the local gun store that same day after work, and ordered a Glock 34 for my gun safe. It's a ugly little cuss, but it sure does shoot good.
A 19 and 42 will be ordered very soon.
In the past three weeks I sold my Glock 22 & 26......and also my Shield. All three of them are outstanding and reliable handguns. Just time to switch it up. Bought my first Sig (320 x-compact) and love it. Thinking about getting a 365 too...but will probably wait until it gets closer to the holidays. As far a Glocks go...I will never have anything negative to say about them. All the hype about “you can feed them anything” is absolutely true. If I ever buy another, it will be a Glock 19. If I would have bought a 19 instead of the 22, I would have kept it. There was a time when you couldn’t have paid me to own one.....then one day, something just clicked.
It's an endless cycle: Glock, Sig, Glock, Sig. It is not madness I tell you.

Hi. I'm one of those who emphatically stated I would never buy a Glock. I really didn't want to like them, swore I'd never have anything to do with one and all that. Then I shot one at a range trip and that was it. I have since sold every Sig Sauer I owned and replaced them with Glocks. I've bought seven since then, four of them G19's of various generations and frame colors. Sometime in the next year or so, I'd like to add a G20 just because, a G45 for a nighstand gun, a G48 for summer carry, and I'm always on the lookout for a good deal on a Gen 1 17L.
See? I stopped fighting it and just accepted what comes naturally to me and I'm so much happier.
I've not known anyone that has regretted buying any CZ ... probably one of the most over looked pistols on the market.
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
Not the betting type
I'll wager any amount & you will loose!!
Carve it in stone!!
Of course, Dan. We believe you, really, we do.
I recommend the highly popular G19... You are going to love it Dan.

I love my Glock 19! Although I’m stuck carrying a G23 most of the time, due to work. I’ve bought several Glocks over the years, I’ll buy more in the coming years, but the 19 is still my favorite.
I've been a Glock fan since the 80's. Even after the internet became popular and I learned that terrorists use them because they don't set off metal detectors, they blow up, they have terrible triggers, the have terrible sights, the grip angle is totally unnatural, and few other negatives, mine have always done everything I could expect a handgun to do.

yeah I use to say the same thing plastic guns SUCK why would anyone one want a plastic gun? sig sauer for me or nothing. then I shot a Glock 19 ten times better then any sig I ever owned, now I don't have any sigs.
Go pick up a 43x put some 15 round shield mags for it and be done.
Just picked up a Glock 48 through the blue label program. Came with the Ameriglo Spartan night sights. I added some Talon grips, a plug and a Ghost connector. My 15 round Shield Arms mag just arrived and so far I'M IN LOVE!!!!
Hater of fun since 2001!
I did, in fact, buy a Glock. It was a Glock 33 and I sold it not long after. The only other time I have shot a Glock was last week on a range trip. It was the 42, brought by my brother, and the only non-Sig in the rotation that day. I did not shoot it well at all.
I can say with conviction, I will never buy another Glock

Then my youngest Son got a M&P Shield 380 EZ
That's had me looking hard at the Springfield Hellcat & SIG Sauer P365s now..
Liking the slim feel of what will be my next carry gun.. Goodbye Glock26 You Fat Pig..
