Eh it happens. Eventually I think we will all finally come to the conclusion " to each man his own".

Btw NY1? Does that mean its am nypd trade in? That would be pretty nifty if that were the case. You know it's shot somebody, more likely an innocent bystander Vrs. A suspect but hey who's keeping track?!

Atleast you're man enough to admit it. I'm glad you're enjoying your new Glock, I'm sure you'll find them just as addicting as 1911's.

I never really understood all the hate (or love) for Glocks. They are just simple, safe, somewhat lightweight, reliable weapons. They aren't special, or nice, but they work. The beauty is in the simplicity of design, lower maintenance required, and the fact that they just are what they are.

People complain about em, but if you can't do it with a Glock, you aren't trying hard enough.

I do however think they cost about $100-$200 too much for what they are.

I was issued one about a month ago. I never shot them well until now. I'm still not comfortable with it yet, but as I have become a better shooter overall, I now shoot them really well. I still don't find it anymore reliable than a Sig or XD.

I think Glocks are great. I hated the grip angle when I used to hold them at the gun shop, they felt "wrong" but then I got to shoot a few of them in my beginning handgun class. All of that, "wrong grip angle" went out the window, shooting them felt great.

I still don't have one but a Gen III 34 has my name written all over it and possibly a 26 for HD as a stash gun.

Was a Sig/CZ guy. Liked steel. Then I got a Glock. Now I have 8. Accurate, super easy to maintain and work on yourself. What? Only 37 parts or something, half of the Sig I believe. Still love Sigs, in fact have 2 Scorpions lined up and paid for, and my CZ's are fantastic but took out 4 guns today, 2 were Glocks. I think they are so easy they just grow on you. (hate the sights though, first thing I change out)
Are they overpriced? I don't know. Each Scorpion I have coming is over a grand. Do they shoot 2x better than a Glock? Besides, in this state they're all bloody well over-priced.

Cool!

I am starting to like the NY1 more that it's more breaking in (with a 3.5 connector).

Anyone have a 2# connector with the NY1, there is one review on midway, and he seems to like that combo.
The 2# connector only has a soso reviews total :-|

Same here I used to never give them a second look regardless of price, then I tried one and glad I did. Have to admit for the money, quality and reliability are top notch.

I have come full circle with Glocks also. I started with Glock, then abandoned the format in favor of Sig P series, M&P series, and a few other brands here and there. Now I'm back to Glock 19's exclusively. I own a regular Gen 3 19, Gen 3 19c, and a still in jail Gen 3 19 RTF.

I went from a G21sf as first handgun to a G19 then tried a G30 and finally settled on a G26 as my favorite handgun. Kind of weird for a 6'4 person I guess.. Love the G23c too my step dad has. Never liked .40 or gave it thought before that.

I love that I can maintain and 'gunsmith' my Glock with a fat matchstick or chopstick.

As with most fan base, you simply need to block out some extreme fanboyizm.

Someone on the 1911 forum is prob. posing, got a 1911 for my Glock, hope you did not equal swap.

Sorry about the bushing, that could of been a $20 total fix with a screw extractor and new bushing.
SAO ~1/8 inch trigger pull with hammer = too much fun

I wasn't a Glock fan either. I was a Beretta guy. I took my Beretta 92FS for my first session in class. I shot okay. Then on the following session, I decided to take my G21. Son of freak...there's only one hole on the target. Then when I got up closer to check our targets, all 3 rounds almost shot through the same hole at 7 yds. Now I own a G21SF, G17, G26. I think a G22 or 23 will be finding a new home to join its brothers.

Welcome to the club! Rock out with your Glock out! Glock 17 RTF2 & 19 RTF2 and hoping to add a 23 RTF 2 to the family (Please let me know if anyone comes across one, Thank you!).

Almost similar experience sold me on Glock. Took my 92FS and a G23 I had gotten in a trade to the range. First time shooting the Glock, 30th time at the range with a Beretta. Shot with the Beretta, then shot a group almost half that size with the Glock. Right now I only have a G19, as I have trimmed myself down to just 9mm, .380 and .38, but if I expand out to another caliber again I will be buying a Glock first.

Same thing happened to me, I bought an LE trade in G22 and I can't shoot it enough now and I hated them in the past.

I'm in the same boat. I carried an HK for my ccw for a couple of years, but my buddy insisted that I get a Glock the next handgun I purchased. Now my everyday carry is a Glock 19. I like the simplicity. If I ever have to draw my gun, I don't want to have to think about a safety, a double action first pull, or anything. I want it up and ready to go without thinking. I know practice and range time can get me to that point with any pistol, and I was there with my HK. But I like the idea of taking out as many variables as possible, and I feel like my Glock does that for me.

Same here first gun was a Gen 3 21 then I sold it and bought a couple HK's and a couple Sig's and some 1911's. Then about a year ago I sold all of them minus a P226 and now I only have 2 G17's and the 226. Next gun is going to be a G19 after that I'm getting a semi custom 1911 and I'll be done with handguns.

Also did not favor glocks.

Shot my cousin's 19 and bought my own a month later.

Love it, shoot better with it than any of my other pistols, and its uber reliable

A G19 was the first handgun I fired...

A G22 was the first handgun I bought.

Rugged, simple and reliable. Put a hundred trouble free rounds downrange today.

The real catalyst for the swap ( it was a bargain 1911 with serious finish wear in exchange for a Glock with a box and 2 mags) was the failure of another gun in my stable. I fixed it myself, but the experience reminded me that all guns eventually break if you shoot them enough.

With a Glock, I can order a part and stick it in the gun. Period. A 1911 ....not so much. I detail stripped mine , got it back together, and immediately understood why good gunsmiths have year long waiting lists.

Lol I started with a Beretta, allot of malfunctions and 1 year later I got my first Glock, a g27 loved it, then got the g23, then got the g19,, then got the g30sf... I hasn't fired 1 round out of that Beretta since I got the first Glock.. Btw the g23 I have was made in1992 and it is my favorite... I'm looking for a gen 2 g17 rite now, I have no real interest in any other pistol.. And I only practice with the g23...

I traded it for the Glock and am happy I did so.Nothing against the 1911 guys,but I'm not ready to invest $80 in a set of files and more $ for parts,books,and service manuals to maintain it.
I will definitely take all that into consideration when I'm done being breast-fed by my 92FS and step up to a .45 sized pistol...

I hated Glocks. I forced myself to buy a Glock 21sf and once I got it home I couldn't put it down. Took it to the range for the first time and my love for Glock was cemented. I ask myself "why did I wait so long?" Although to be honest my 21sf will more than likely be my only Glock. I like variety

I went the other way. The Glock 21 was my first handgun. I like it for its ease of maintance, but I always wanted a nice 1911. I personally like working on guns and developing my smithy skills. ALthough the Glock allows for some fun witha Dremel, and you can paint them quite easily. They are not pretty or beautiful guns. As someone mentioned above--their beauty lies in their simplicity and dependability. Have fun!
