    I carry a Glock Model 30 and Model 39.

    Accurate, very reliable, moderately priced.

  4. All guns are unsafe if not used right,saw is a hammer ,chain saw and cars. I still don't want one of most prize positions taken away when used to protect. Glocks and keltec are half the price of my 1911.

  5. Had a G26 but sold it. Never had any problems with it, but it just never felt "right" in my hand and I could never shoot it very well. I initially bought it when I first started thinking about concealed carry because it was a really small semi-auto. When I first bought it, it felt a little odd in my hand, but I convinced myself that I could get used to that. Never did. I have shot a G19 once and it seemed OK, so maybe it was just the small size of the 26. Anyway, I have nothing against Glocks. They seem to be really reliable and lots of guys swear by 'em, but I'm happy with my CZ's at the moment.

    I am not a Glock fan. I am sure they are very reliable guns. I just personally don't care for them. My brother has several of them and really likes them. I found them uncomfortable to hold. The only one I have ever shot was a baby glock. Every few rounds it would lock open for no reason with several different people shooting it. A smith took it apart and changed the locking mechanism for it. It still did it. I am sure this is an unusual case. If I found one I liked I would consider buying it. They are just not my favorite.

  7. I have had a Glock 21 in .45 caliber for awhile and then traded it in on the new slimline Glock 36 in .45 caliber, as it fits my hand a lot better that the Glock 21. Have had 1911 handguns, but switched to the Glock for realibality after the 1911 failed on me during qualification on two seperate occasions. Now if Crimson trace would hurry up and make the laser sight for the Model 36, I would be a very happy camper. Top point to consider, the only thing that matter in selection of a handgun is what works best for you!:D

  8. I personally have never had a problem with a glock. I have several CCW's and one of them is a Glock 19. While not as finely tuned as a Sig or as easy on the eyes as a 1911, it serves it's purpose for CCW, especally in the Southern states during summer when I can just tuck it in my waistband and go. With my other, more expensive firearms, I worry about sweat and rust. With the glock 19, I don't worry about it. And it is half way decent close range gun.

    JC40, I'll answer your question at the risk of opening a can of worms.

    A good friend of mine, who is a career police officer and now CCW instructor, witnessed another experienced officer accidentally shoot himself in the thigh with a Glock 23. He is lucky to be alive and will never walk normally again.

    It was winter and he was wearing a jacket with a draw string at the waist with those barrel type string keepers. As he holstered his weapon, apparently that barrel keeper found it's way in to the trigger guard so as he pressed the weapon in to the holster his Glock fired.

    Being told about that incident from a first hand witness started me thinking about what I consider now to be a dangerous aspect of the Glock design and what I also consider a safety hazard. No safety other than that trigger which is too easily defeated!

    I'm sure there are those who will read this who will want to jump in and attack the shooter etc. etc. Again, I am posting this as a courtesy to JC40's request. NOT to debate the issue. I simply no longer feel safe carrying a Glock... that's just me. I still have a Glock 27 but am very likely going to sell it as I never carry it anymore.

    So JC40, there ya have it bro! ;) ~ Sarge

    Thanks sarge.I appreciate your honesty and reply to my question.I can see where that would lead you to your opinion of glock handguns and that is a very reasonable conclusion on your part.

    Those kind of stories are, I feel for the most part are a bunch of crap! You can shoot your self with any kind of gun. I remember years ago before 1911s became popular, when ever any one who was not informed would see it being carried in the cocked and locked fashion, would be scared sh%tless, and scream YOU ARE GOING TO SHOOT YOUR SELF carrying like that. Glocks are as safe as any firearm out there, I own several models of Glocks, but I don't carry them very much, only because I am to lazy to try to cover them up, when I can just stick my Kel Tec P11 in my belt and roll! So don't let horror stories scare you off from buying one, If it fits you and you like it go for it! Rest assured they are fine weapons, recognized world wide
    You can run, But you only get caught tired
