Thread: Glock people

  1. #11
    Some people are opinionated fools. We all have our favorite firearms. I have a Glock 19 and it is a good gun but my main carry is a HK P2000SK LEM. I also own a Sig and a couple Walthers as well as a number of other guns. I would have no problem carrying any of them and at one time or another have. The one thing I will say for Glock is that you get a lot of bang for the buck, no pun intended.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    Yeah, I'll bet that guy is a real hit with the ladies too. The handgun we should have and carry is the handgun that we shoot well - after all, isn't that the point?

    A lot of people are brand affiliated. Instead of focusing on the close minded that like X or Y gun how about we all imbrace one anothers love of firearms may it be a wheel gun or an auto :)

    First, you have a fine firearms collection. I don't know anything about the Jericho but the rest are fine weapons.

    Second, at some point the Range Officer or store management should have taken him aside and had a "word of prayer" with him. My statement would be "You can either stop bothering my other customers or you can leave. I won't ask again."

    Third, I wonder what else this guy does with his Glocks? I understand brand loyalty but seriously - I'd be scared to touch any of his guns without gloves on. It's okay to love your Glocks, just as long as you don't *love* your Glocks.

    Thank you all for your help and understanding. I greatly appreciate it. I'm just going to try to find a new place to go to shoot. I am still taken aback by such strong "Brand Loyality" that I see with guns, but it is nice to see that I'm not the only one.

    Thanks again for all your support.

    I forgot to mention this but you were right to walk away. A fight in a gun store is a BAD situation.

    I re-read the OP and had missed how the guys "encouraging" Mr Glock *lover* were employees of the shop. If I ran that shop I would have either fired every one of them or have them so job-scared that they were begging to work overtime for free polishing the toilets. I'd probably fire the ringleader just to prove a point to the rest of the staff.

    IMO you should talk to the manager of the shop and inform him of this situation, and mention that it makes you want to do business elsewhere. Explain to him that if Glocks are God's gift to handgunnery then he should have a clearance sale on everything non-Glock and sell only Glocks.

    Is the Jericho basically the same as a Baby Eagle? I've heard good things about the Baby Eagle.

So why do these people insult, degrade and make fun of people who donít have Glockís? Let me tell you what happened so you have the info. Iím sorry if this is long but you need the story.

    Yesterday I went the Gun Range with a friend of mine. I had recently bought two new guns (by recently I mean in the past 6 months) that had never been shot so I wanted to go and play for a while. I bought an IWI Jericho 941B compact in 9mm and an S&W M&P9 Full Size. I also brought the rest of my guns so we could have stuff to shoot, my baby an HK USP9 Compact, S&W Model 10-5 Snub, and an S&W Model 66. We get our lane time and proceed to blow the hell out of our paper targets when this guy from a couple lanes down comes in with the Glock catalog (He had one of every Glock, maybe exaggerating here a little but he had at least 10 Glocks in all different sizes and calibers) wearing a Glock shirt, with a Glock Range Bag stuffed with Glock gun rugs. Iím sure if Glock sells underwear he was wearing that too. He starts to shoot and he is a good shot, nailing targets at 10, 15, and 25 yards with tight groups. He seeís our targets, we were just playing to get a good feel for the new guns, and while they were really tight groups with, they at least hit the 8.5 by 11 paper. He proceeds to tell me that if I had a Glock, Iíd be bulls eyeing all the targets. I said ok thatís fine, but these are new guns and I just want to enjoy shooting for a while and see how the gun feels before I start zeroing in with the gun (Cause that takes FOREVER!!). He then looks at my arsenal, and says that the only thing I could and should hit with those guns is the garbage can I need to put them into.

    Ok, I can take people poking fun about myself and stuff I own, so I say sure and proceed to keep shooting. By the end of the night all my shots are in the center 4 inch square with all the guns at 10 yards, which makes me happy and my friend and I really had a lot of fun. The Glock guy had left the lane about 10 minutes before we were finished so I had forgotten about him. When we left the lane, he was outside talking about how bad our guns were with the range officer who was just nodding and not really paying attention (Glazed over look on his face like he hears this all the time). He pointed me out as I left the range and yelled that they should allow my garbage guns on the lane. I asked what the hell his problem was and walked away to go get some cleaning supplies cause I was out of Hoppes 9 and had one hell of a cleaning night ahead of me. He proceed to walk up and keep talking to me about how Glock is far better to anything out on the market, and he kept going on and on and on about this for about 5 minutes. Finally I told him I donít care I donít like the Glock and please leave me alone. By that time some of the other guys who worked at the store started in on how Glock is the best gun thing ever and kept encouraging the guy. Finally I walked out to people mocking me and calling me a baby for standing around to argue.

    I know I did the right thing and Sticks and Stones and all, but I feel that if I donít like Glock or S&W or Springfield I shouldnít be made fun of or mocked. I also feel that the store employees should have said something to Glock Guy instead of helping him. I felt really embarrassed and bullied by this and while it will be a cold day in hell before I ever walk in to that place again, I want to know where the Glock people get the right to do this. I love my guns and am an HK guy, but I wouldnít mock or call somebody out for not having a HK gun. I was just wondering what you guys thought about it.

    I love Glocks, i like the simplicity, and the easy maintenance it requires.
