In almost every pistol advice thread I see some Glock sackrider that posts "Buy a Glock. /Thread" I can't stand Glocks. I've never shot one I've liked. I've always felt that the recoil was less comfortable or less controllable than I'd prefer. I don't think they're that stealthy or concealable(at least not on my small frame), seeing as they're thick and block-ish. I've also never understood their model naming conventions, but that's not a reason I wouldn't buy one. From a design perspective, I've never really thought that they were anything special to look at either. There must be a reason that people love these guns. They're probably one of the best selling pistol brands out there. Ironically, I LOVE my SA XD's, whose design isn't that far off from the Glock basic design standards. I think that they're the slickest shit since the 1911. Just some random thoughts...flame away.
