Re: Glock Handguns
Having been strictly a wheelgun and 1911 fan years ago, it took a while for me to warm up to Glock's. I bought my first one (G21) in '94. That generation frame sometimes feels like a 2x4 for a handle in my hand; but I can shoot that gun extremely well. All Glock's are natural pointers and sit low in the hand for good recoil recovery. Over the years, I've shot most of their models, and find them all to be excellent. They are simple in design, simple to disassemble/repair/upgrade, and just always seem to work. My friend just sold his G30 (he never tried the Pearce grip-extensions) because he felt the small .45 hammered him too much. He went to a S&W 9mm model and is happier now.
Some people seem to love the Glock, others never warm up to it. I had to be coaxed somewhat but I like them and they certainly have their place in the LE market.
I like the Pearce grip-extensions on the smaller compact models. I've read great reviews on the Slimline 36. Myself, I always wished years ago that Glock come out with a full-size or a "Commander" size frame, single-stack .45. I never saw a need for 13 or 15 rounds (possible with the Glock +2 extensions) in a .45acp.
