I checked the "overnights" (loosely defined as past comments) and noticed your name a couple of times.. Comments were positive as they should have been.. Have a feeling your going to be a great addition providing some of our "oddities" (loosely defined as our collective REAL weird group, self included) don't scare you off, etc, etc..

For what it's worth most new members don't get this super warm welcome, so give yourself an extra helping of raisin pie tonight..

RE Glocks running dirty.. The agency (DOC) i retired from transitioned to Glocks in the mid nineties.. A number of us who were involved with the armory, and training attended a Glock mfg briefing that was facilitated by the marketing end of the company. Those that dealt with LE agencies.. I remember these same issues being dealt with in the video..

Which by the way is a classic, clearly filmed in Austria, and dubbed into english.. At the time Glocks were just starting to become popular, and i can tell you that at the end of the film every one in the room had a true appreciation for quality of the piece..

Our transition was from revolvers (ruger and Smith K frames) and both staff, and armorers agreed that the weapons system was both reliable, and almost maintenance free..

All this being said im not much of a Glockaphile, but that has nothing to do with the piece..

Again welcome, and enjoy..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

reighn....

I owned a glock for all of 3 months. Sold it and will never buy another. There are as many reasons not to by a glock as there are to own one. if the Glock was the end all be all of pistols, why are there so many other brands selling like hot-cakes?

Pros:

Reliabiity
Accuracy
Capacity
Durability
Ease of Maintenance
Simple Manual of Arms
Price
Repair/Aftermarket Parts
Inexpensive Mags

Cons:

Not Comfortable for Some
Shitty Factory Sights

Yep, that's about it. Comfort is a huge thing, and the Glock isn't for everyone, but I have yet to find any gun other than the XD that I like anywhere near as much as the Glock. Ooh, ready for some flaming?

Runny....

I know your a glockophile..... But lets be honest, how it fits in the hand is a BIG con. If a person finds it uncomfortable (and I know not all do) then it is a no-go. I will never buy another glock, I won't say they are bad guns... Just bad for me. However, they aren't the only gun worth owning. And I'll take my 1911 over any glock, only thing they have on the glock is mag capacity, and I shoot well enough I don't need more then 8. Maybe you do though. :)
