This is not a anti Glock thread at all. I own too many Glocks to start any of that....
I have A LOT of guns. I like a lot of tools in the tool box. Lately I have been migrating away from polymer handguns. My trusty old Glocks feel horrible compared to my Sig's. I can appreciate the Glocks simplicity but they just feel crappy in my hands now that I have been shooting my Sig's and 1911's. I have demoted my Glock's as a car gun or ATV pack gun. Tough, reliable but couldn't care less if they get banged around or get marks on them. I use to love Glocks and all mine have modded triggers and all the typical stuff you do to a Glock to make them more shootable but now I'm having a hard time convincing myself to even pick them up and shoot them anymore??? I like the Glock, but now I don't love them like my other pistols. Anyone else go through this blasť feeling about your Glocks??

To me Glocks have always been just a sheer utilitarian gun. I never fell in love with them but they were great to have around and as reliable as you could ever expect. They never give me the warm and tinglies like some of the other gorgeous guns I own (ex: Sig 1911 or CZ 2075) but they served the purpose. I think no matter how far you get away from them when the "****" hits the fan, its a nice piece to have by your side. My .02

I've owned Glocks for 21 years and I'm totally comfortable with them even though SIGs are now my main handguns. When bought my first SIG, I had lots of trouble adjusting to it due to my long history shooting Glocks. Eventually, I adapted to the SIG and learned to love it as much as my Glocks. I like shooting them both.

I recenly bought a Glock 30 for myself and a Glock 26 for the wife. I like them. The 30 feels real nice in my hands. I also picked up a SIG P220 Compact SAS and WOW!! REALLY like that gun. So I like both makes. I am just not comfortable with the inherent limp wrist problem with Glocks. That makes them strictly a range gun for me.

That is pretty much where I am at. They are like fire extinguishers. You can never have too many but I don't spend much time looking at them.

I'm in the utilitarian camp when it comes to Glocks. I carry one mostly, have one in the truck and have a back up in the house and have extra mags stashed about.

What I really hate is I shoot them as good or better than my Sigs.

Yes - especially after buying my Walther PPQ! SIGs are absolutely my go to guns for hammer fired but for striker fired nothing equals the Walther PPQ IMO.

I have 2 Glocks, I'm looking to get two or three more. I have tried to pick up a G19 4 times, and EVERY TIME I walk away with something else (Walther PPQ, Wather PPK/S, CZ-SP01, S&W 327NG)..It's not because I have anything against it, in fact me NOT having a G19 in my collection keeps me feeling like this particular hole is unplugged, my mind says "you gotta have a G19 in the collection..ya gotta!". Although I have a few pieces that plainly are alternates that are every bit as good I feel I still must have it.

I have a G26 so should feel no need for the G19 but I do. In the back of my mind I sorta know it will be there and I'll eventually get it. Also on my list are the 10mm models (20 & 29) but I've convinced myself to wait for a Gen4 version of them, for no other reason than it allows me not to also drive myself nuts thinking that I must pick them up sooner than later.

My other Glock is the Gen4 21, it's my bedside firearm. It's a fantastic firearm, they both are.

With the number of handguns I own I must admit to still reaching for the G26 more than most. Something about the straight-forward unpretentious utilitarian manner in which it presents itself so I dont worry if it gets scuffed, shows holster wear, gets bashed and scraped occasionally when I sit or move about while it's on my hip. It has firepower above the new pocket pistols and equal to any 'fighting pistol' with the G17 magazine, I shoot it easily and accurately, it carries well on ankle, IWB, OWB, tossed in a backpack, is a piece that wont fluster me if it get dropped or if the worst happens and I need to draw it and the results is a confiscation by LE, I'll not wonder if they are delicately handling my pricey psudo-jewelryesque carry piece. It frankly is the perfect carry piece for the obvious and not-so-obvious reasons. Trying to ween myself off it. I still claim my primary daily carry piece is my Walther PPQ but when I did that I also moved my G26 to an ankle carry..I just couldnt let it go and it amazingly carries awesome on the ankle in a Galco ankle holster. I'm now trying and intend to promote my p938 to my everyday weekday carry when I go about my boring benign suburban day and leave the 'fighting' guns for other times I'm roaming the landscape and not at my 9-5 desk work.

I'm silly, I have 5-"To Hell and Back" Sigs and about to get a 6th but I have a difficult time carrying them because they are so nice. I bought my 'basic' P229R to convince me to view and treat it in a utilitarian fashion, got a few holsters to facilitate carrying it's extra heft easier and I still dont carry it near as much as it deserves.

It's easy to see how someone could take pride in owning a Sig, H&K, etc. I can also see why someone would buy a Glock but it would be for entirely different reasons. There's nothing "prestigious" about a Glock. It does what it does very well but it's not something you show off to your friends.

For those experienced with Glocks, do you think you would get a Glock 19 or SIG P250 compact for occasional concealed carry (already have a couple of micros for EDC)?

Would you reccomend the G19 or the PPQ?

I bet it will come down to how the pistol feels and which trigger you prefer...

My experiences with GLOCK pistols are G17, G19, G21, G21SF, G21 Gen4, G23 with the .40 S&W, 357 SiG and 9mm barrels and a G27 in .40 S&W and 357 SiG...(hated the Gen 2 G19 and the G27 in 357 SiG)

Built like tanks, easy to shoot because of the same trigger pull shot after shot, nice to be able to carry varying payloads from same caliber in different sizes, easy to own and maintain and accurate enough...

I'm not crazy about the grip angle but you can get used to it...a bit wide as most are double stack but...I wouldn't ever feel under gunned with any of those I've owned or own...

I went through a Glock "phase", because they really are excellent firearms.

Lot to like about a Glock, except for the staple gun trigger and poor ergos (for me)

Now that my main carry gun is a too heavy, too thick, low capacity Sig P220 Compact SAS......I am all too happy to never pick up another Glock!

On paper, the Glock has it all over the Sig (when discussing carry guns), but for me.....SIG

As much as I want to dislike them, I shoot my G19 better than any other gun I own. I carry my 239,but shoot the Glock far better.

Sig 239 group on left. G19 on right. Rapid fire from 25 feet. Standing, two handed. I shoot the sig so much, I put the 19 uncharacteristicly high on the target.
