Glock

Bought my first Glock in 1989 and have been impressed with them ever since. Strange to hear that Crab, as I have had zero problems with my Glock's in any capacity. Super accurate, fast draw, light, easy to maintain. Fits my hands like a glove. Love my Glocks.

The only gun I ever had a passion about is one I no longer have - a Daisy Red Rider BB gun. Even there, the Chinese now make better ones than we do.

You must like the 1911 angle grip? I do know if you don't have big hands, Glocks can be tough to grip correctly.
1911 feels like an extension of my hand, so yeah, perfect fit. With the Glock, it’s more the angle of the grip. Feels like I have to point down to aim. I worked with it and can shoot Glocks fairly well, but dont have to work at all to shoot 1911’s or any of my Springfield XD pistols. My hands aren’t tennis racket big, but they’re at least average. Not sure that’s part of the issue.

I'll agree with ya. I like my Glock, but a 1911 and my Springfield's just point on there own.

Just got the Sig P365........LOVE the gun, and love it also for its inconspicuous conceal carry.

I have bigger hands......need to get the optional 12 round mag for a better hand fit.

Shot a few Sigs and they’re good guns. The P365 is light, even for a compact polymer pistol.

Edit: My Springfield XD-Mod 2 is similarly a better fit with the larger capacity mag. It feels odd hooking my pinky past the end of the grip with the standard mag in place.

I like the XD line, and agree with the comments on the grip angle. To me, the original XD was Springfield's answer for the Glock; then the XD(M) and Mod 2 were upgrades from there. Glock has had so many "Gen x" upgrades since then, but they still have that goofy grip angle (like a Luger).

I like the feel of the new M&P (2.0) in my hand, too, though I'm not crazy about the trigger.

I liked Gunny, and I like Chuck, but it's not gonna make me buy a Glock.

Agreed. They're fine weapons, but if you can't shoot them well, what's the point? Aside from a few fringe gun makers, most manufacturers make quality firearms. Some features work better than others or work better for one shooter than another, but it's mostly preference. If it goes 'bang' it can do its job. I want one that works well for me, regardless of who else thinks it a good gun or not.
