Wandered into one LGS today for the first time since perhaps Christmas, to see about ammo. No firearm purchase = no ammo (except in two calibers and limited to one box); but there were a couple of Gen 5 G22s, and a G17. One G22 was a Blue Label; whipped out my retired Military ID, license, etc. and brought it home. May name her Marlena.

New Glockstore opened in Nashville today... I'm sure I'll be adding to the collection soon
Don't weep for the stupid, or you will be crying all day
I held a couple of Glocks a few weeks ago. Remembered why I sold my last one. They still haven't fixed the biggest problems IMO.

You should shoot one.
You may be surprised..
What exactly are the biggest problems IYO?
I got a really good deal on a Blue Label G19 Gen 4 and it's become my project gun. The OEM trigger was awful so I switched to an Overwatch Precision TAC trigger. From there I purchased a Blacklist barrel and had some mill work on the slide. It shoots great and it's very accurate but I'm not real fond of the grip angle
G19 Gen 4
I've been resisting buying a Glock for years until I wanted a subcompact in 10mm. I had no choice but to buy a Glock.
I've shot several. The backstrap shape, grip angle, mushy trigger, etc.
However, if I bought a Glock, it would be a 10mm. Unless Sig makes a better one.
I’d have agreed with you until I shot a Gen 5 Glock 17. I almost always do a trigger job on any gun I buy except this one there is no need.
It’s my first Glock and probably not my last.

If you don't like the Glock backstrap shape, grip angle, mushy trigger, then why would you buy one in the over rated 10MM caliber?
Just move on....
I’m very impressed with the new Gen5 models, made the mistake of selling off a 45 and wish I kept it. As soon as a Gen5 21 comes around, will pick up one as a suppressor host.
I might suggest looking at Zev to do a reduction, stipple, and a trigger pack. Made a huge difference on my Gen3.

I bought a used G22 Gen 4 last fall. Also bought a Rock Slide 357 Sig G 31 barrel in stainless about the same time.
Just got around to shooting it today with the 357 Sig barrel, and was impressed with the accuracy.And function was perfect in 50 rounds.
The Rock Slide barrel has conventional rifling. Anyone else have a Rock Slide barrel in their Glock?

I've had a Gen 3 G19 for about 15 years and never liked those things myself. It just didn't feel right in spite of good accuracy and perfect reliability.
Then I bought a Houge Grip Sleeve and put in a NY1 trigger spring that made all the difference for me for almost no money. Also easy enough to undo if you don't like it.
Avoid buying ChiCom/CCP products whenever possible.
