WAS my favorite carry gun until the Shield 2.0 arrived. Smith and Wesson gave Glock a winner to strive to beat. If was Glock, I would really start working on their triggers and slimming that grip up, because as of right now, OUT THE BOX I am talking, the 2.0 is dominant right now. Smith listened to the customer base, and hit a homer!


Now take my Glock 17 Gen three, with all the upgrades I have done.... Smith can't touch it.


My Glock 30 is still on my belt here and there... when I need to feel that 45 again.....


My Glock 41 is my new suppressor hog!!! When that thing gets outta ATF jail... but since I am working for no check, and I am sure the NFA section is not working period! UGH!

Never handled a 2.0 so I can't comment. I know the original M&P was a nice pistol.

Having run Glocks for the last 25-30 years, and having a larger than average hand, I find the Glocks to be a very natural fit and second nature in the trigger pull department. I did put a 3.5# connector kit in my G29 because I have this thing about shooting at stuff that's far away. Makes it more interesting with a bit better trigger.

My true love for the Plastic Fantastic is its penchant to ALWAYS go boom no matter what. I had a certified Glock armorer disassemble my G29 and upon doing so (he had been in the Sandbox in the military) told me he had NEVER, EVER seen a pistol so thoroughly filthy as my 10mm. Yet it never had and still never has failed to feed, fire or function. Nor have my other two Glocks.


And the torture test Glock..... what can you say ???

I have a 17, 41, and 30. All are fully customized and if it came down to it, my 17 is my go-to gunfighter. Been in my holster since '99. I got rid of a few (26, 19, 23, 34, 35) cause I had no need for them. They are a true wonder, but they still need work to make them spectacular. From what I have seen from a few companies (Smith, FN, Sig) Glock has a few battles ahead to stay in the top of the LE Game. Sad to say, they are losing, they are trying with the Gen 5, but the grip and the trigger need work out the box. Not aftermarket.


Wanna make that 29 sing???? Zev Spring kit, and a Suarez Flat or Apex Flat trigger. Keep that 3.5 connector, but polish it up!

To each his own...……...whatever makes you comfortable.

FWIW...…….. Never once, in 25-30 years of shooting Glocks and carrying Glocks concealed, have I ever wished for any safety features beyond what the Safe Action System trigger offers.

I do not care for Glocks. However, it has nothing to do with them not having a safety. All firearms have a safety. The safety is the brain of the person holding and using the gun. The gun I carry most is a Kahr .40 S&W which has a striker system like a Glock . All you have to do is learn and practice off target,off trigger, the same as if your gun had a safety. The second it takes to remove the safety could be the difference between life and death.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

That surprises me... I have pretty big claws as well, and have handled and shot a half-dozen or so Glocks over the last few years, and have yet to find one that fits in my hand. I like the way they function, and I've seen enough to know that they almost always go bang without fail, but they're not for me.

My Kahr CM9 is my primary carry gun, although I've been pleasantly surprised with a S&W Shield in 9mm that I picked up last year. Once I get a proper holster for it, I'll probably carry it more.

Piece of ---- plastic sights horrible trigger. But what I know I just a retired police sgt who carried glocks my whole career.

Only reason glocks are popular in law enforcement is you can buy them in bulk fir like 299 saving the taxes papers. Try that with a sig

What do I know I just a idiot not like these weekends with drop down holsters who shoot once a month .

I just purchased a Kimber Micro 9. Lightweight, 9mm, nice trigger pull and easy off of the safety. I've carried and shot the 1911 platform for years so for me......it's a natural fit. The Micro 9 is a pocket carry firearm and will carry easy without much thought to dress attire.
