I have 1 or 2 Glocks and about 300 Glock magazines. I also own more HK's, Smith and Wesson M&P's(and 3rd gens), Sigs, XD's than I probably should.

But yeah, I like Glocks. I have a few extremely valuable ones, but no Gen 1 Glock 19's, sadly
I still have 2 brand new never issued gen 1 Glock 19 marked MPDC on the slide. I paid $425 a piece for them, sold one in 2012 that I put 42,000 rounds through for $425. Still had all the original factory springs in it and it still worked and shot nice groups.

I had one Glock back in the 90's and couldn't get used to the grip (shooting a S&W 59 & 1911 before that). Sold it and haven't had one since. I went with the XD platform for my striker fired guns.
Once you get invested in extra mags, holsters, sights, trigger jobs... its hard to switch to something else.
That's my opinion... and I'm stick'in to it...
but.. I might change my mind.

I have 3 myself. What is great about Glocks as with the 1911, You can get parts for them anywhere. There are so many aftermarket parts and dealers, you can ALMOST walk into a grocery store and get some.
If you are always prepared for an emergency, there will never be an emergency.

CZ75B, S&W39 and the P226 are my favorite 9mm. Tried th Glock 19 a few times just never lit my fire.

Glocks work but I wouldn't say they are the best shooters out there. I own plenty of them for the pure fact that magazines, accessories and after market parts are cheap and plentiful. I would much rather shoot any metal gun over any plastic gun. I also don't think they are necessarily the best striker fired handgun out there also. When I had M&P's I thought they were a better shooters than my Glocks but ultimately got rid of them due to magazine prices but if the magazines ever came down in price I would probably pick another one up.

My favorite Glock model is the 17. A G17 can do everything a 34 can and fits my giant hands better than the G19. I've had multiple G19's and just end up getting rid of them because they don't fill a role for my lifestyle. I'd much rather carry a G17 out hiking than a G19 even if it weighs more because the difference isn't all that much. I can't conceal carry a G19 comfortably unless I'm going somewhere cold and can sacrifice comfort for something bigger. Even then I still end up carrying a G17 over the G19. I carry a G26 pretty much everyday around the valley all year round because very few days can I wear anything more than a flannel. Now that the 43X has come out I am thinking of getting one of those to carry as it's basically the same size as the Smith and Wesson shield which I can comfortably carry anytime. With all that being said I still own a G34, G17, G19 and a G26. The newer Glock models haven't caught my attention because every role I need filled can already be filled with the current Glocks I own. The only new ones I am contemplating about getting are the G48 or G43X.

I just bought my first piece of Tupperware, Glock 19 gen 4. The 1911s in .45 are getting to be a little less intriguing in my old age, not that I don’t still like to take them shooting once in a while, I had abandoned all my 9mm stuff in favor of the .45 and the .38 special for the revolvers. Well that was a stupid plan. Back to square one!

My only gripe with my G19 gen 4 and G43 is the undercut in the trigger guard. Thats taken care of easily enough! I had a double undercut done on my G19's frame and its perfect. My knuckles don't rub on the trigger guard uncomfortably anymore.

I agree with a lot of the people here though, Glocks aren't the end all be all of handguns. They go bang every time though and thats the most important part for me!

I started casually shooting in the mid 1980's. First handgun was a S&W model 66-2 in 1985. 2nd handgun and first auto was around '91 with a S&W 5904. Never interested in Glocks. Stopped shooting in the mid '90's with the birth of my children.

Got drawn back into shooting about 3 years ago. Bought a Ruger SP101 in Jan. 2016 and in Oct '16 picked up a S&W 6906. (Still had the 66-2 and the 5904) Still had never shot a Glock and no interest in them.

Then, end of January 2017, I'm at the range (C2) with 2 friends. Shot one's G17 and the other's G42. From the first round in each I was shooting those Glocks better than anything I owned. The next weekend I went to the range by myself and rented a G26 - and shot that better than anything I owned. Drove to Carl's Jr for biscuits and gravy, then straight to AZ Firearms and Collectibles (Tempe) and bought a Glock 19.

Now I own 4 Glocks - 2 G43's; 2 G19's. And I still shoot them better than my Smith autos.
I tried to resist the Glock darkside - but finally succumbed. However, I'm not a Glock only guy - have bought a Sig P365 and a Walther PPS M2 LE since.

(Yeah, I'm partial to the Grays)

For me the G19 just fits the everything I need in a handgun.
