This is an interesting opinion piece. I really like my Glocks. But I also have several other pistols, revolvers and carbines that I really like.

Is Glock the Perfect Gun Company? - AllOutdoor.com

I agree they are stout firearms. I have a plain Jane 30s .45 with night sights that is surely my primary carry.

However I also have a S&W M-13-3 .357 that is, for all intent and purposes, my favorite carry piece of all. Hard hitting, accurate- a gunfighters gun.

Glocks are great- I love them for their durability, reliability and interchangeability. But perfect? Too subjective.

I got rid of mine, actually (3rd gen G23). It's not that it wasn't reliable (it really was, I couldn't kill it), but it was the first pistol I bought. Once I got older, had more disposable income and started looking and trying other brands....I found the ergonomics of my Glock sucked compared to other brands. I much prefer H&K or Walther, H&K being my first choice every time.

It may be perfect for you but for a lot of people they suck. I have a 26 and 19 and yes I like them. But the S&W M&P feels much better in my hand and is more accurate.

I'm trying to decide if this is going to end up as a Glock fanboy thread or the opposite. There are plenty of firearms just as reliable, and much more comfortable. They offer nothing that makes me want to buy one.

No they never seem to fit right in my hand, something about the angle of the grip. So no the Glock is not the perfect gun for me.

I had a SF21 for a long time. Even though it was a slim frame, it was pretty big. Too big for any concealed work. I got my hands on the 30s and man what a difference. Like night and day.

However like I said- I really REALLY like my S&W M13-3. That K frame revolver is way nicer. And I don't know how much more 'reliable' you can get than a Smith wheelgun!

I beg to differ. For products yes, for company ethics and customer service Ruger.
I bought a brand new Mini14 when I was 18. I don't remember how many rounds I put through it over the years but I always stripped it and cleaned it when I was done. Eventually it had failed to cycle. First it would get intermittent short strokes then every other shot would short stroke until it was effectively reduced to a straight pull bolt action.

I sent it back to Ruger. 2 weeks without it I get it back and they installed a new barrel for FREE as it was an "update" I don't know why... it didn't key hole. Still made soda cans dance at 100 yards... the rifleing was still good... the chamber still sealed tight with 223 brass...

Problem was with the piston. Fixed for free and included 20 shell casings proving it fired.

Perfect company-Ruger.
Perfect pistol in function as we all don't have the same size hands or preference for grip angle-Glock.

The only way I'd ever own a Glock is if someone gave it to me and then I'd only own it as long as it took me to sell it or trade it for something I actually liked. This isn't a knock on Glock's quality though; I think they make great products. But as others have mentioned the fit in my hand, handling, and general ergonomics ensure I'll never spend a dime on one. There's a lot out there that's better for me personally.

There is no " perfect " gun , or gun manufacturer . There are people who love Glocks , and there are those who love High Points . I don't hate on anybody's choice of gun .
