I think I have a Glock addiction....

I bought a G19 last year, a couple months ago I bought a G26, and last week a G17 somehow followed me home.

I refused to believe that these things could multiply, but the picture says otherwise

Get yourself a CZ and that will change your addiction...to a CZ addiction! LOL

I have 2CZ75 with Crimson Laser Grips, CZSP-01, CZ97BD and I'm getting a CZP-06 next month (with a Crimson Trace Laser Grip too).

My friend has even more CZ than that! But if it makes you feel better, I plan on getting a G23 as my next firearm (new coilovers for my car tapped me $1200 - Apexi's - atleast my car will slide sideways easier again)!

I wouldn't call that an addiction. It's just a good start in my opinion.

I have seven Glocks and I know I can quit buying them any time I want. Yeah, there's no monkey on my back. Just because you have a little "need" for Glocks that doesn't make an addiction..........

Enjoy them all. You've chosen well.

WOW 7 GLOCK huh?!?! Guess how many I have??? "0"!!! I've got 5 and will have 6 CZs next month and I plan on continuing my collection. Not to mention I have other handguns than just CZs. And don't get me started on my shotguns and rifles. BTW: I do intend to purchase a G23, then you'll still be 6 up on me. Does that make ya feel better??? LOL!!!

I was joke'n with this gentleman about how to "break'n his Glock Addiction."

So don't be such a downer. We're here to help each other out and share information. Please don't be-little other members, no one likes a bully. Thanks - Cheers!

In Order of Purchase and Motive:

10/2005: G21, Because I Wanted It!

12/2005: G19, Because She Wanted One!

06/2006: G17, Because 9 mm's Cheaper to Shoot!

Next Up: G30 SF, If we Ever Get a CCW Provision in Wiskonsin!

**********

Today, my G21's my bedside gun.

Judy's G19 is her do all gun!

My G17's my dedicated range gun, and my oldest son's favorite!

At those times when the three of us go to the range, I always shoot the .45!

Don't worry, it'll pass. I outgrew the polymer/hi-cap phase in my life.

After a while I felt no "pride of ownership" in polymers.

I have since moved on and up.

Individual results may vary.

If you obtained one example of every caliber, frame size and generation Glock ever offered, you would have a pretty good-sized collection.

I got a G23 and liked it so much that 2 months later got a G27. Both are good utility guns that work.

I reckon it's different strokes for different folks. I've got that HK fever too. It was my first .45 ACP, (USP Compact) and I carry it everywhere. Most of my other hand guns are full frame and are more difficult to conceal in hot weather.

If ya like the Glock, it suits you, fits you hand well (very important) go with it.

I'll be stick'n to my CZs, steel frame construction...not poly here (expect some in their compact models). And again, I recommend you catch the CZ fever!!! hee hee!

Simply put, you cannot go wrong with a Glock. I have a 19 and 34. Love them both.

I agree. I don't own glocks, I don't like the grip angle, but I own other hi-cap polymers and they don't give me the same satisfaction. Don't get me wrong, they are still well used and go to guns of mine, I just don't give them a second glance when I pass by one in a case. I have really wanted to obtain more revolvers.

A while back I had the opportunity to buy a Glock 26. Almost did it, as I would really like to have 1) a 9mm gun and 2) another gun for concealed carry. Something stopped me, though, and instead I bought a Colt Diamondback. I haven't regretted it since, but there is still something nagging in the back of mind that I should buy a Glock for cheap kicks and reliable carry. I have no doubt that sooner or little I will end up with one.... heck, I was even researching a Glock 33 with extra barrels so I could run .40 and 9mm through it. At any rate, enjoy those Glocks.

My very first handgun was a Glock 17 my dad gave me for my 21st birthday. That one will always be my favorite, and is still the one I shoot most. Later I got a Glock 26 but I sold it after a few months because I just didn't really like the grip, and found it a bit thick for CC.

Recently, I got a really good deal on a Glock 32, which is my first of the in-between size, and the Glock love affair has fired back up!

Rugged, simple, reliable. To me, function is a form unto itself, which makes the Glock truly beautiful. There aren't many neutral opinions about Glocks, it seems.

I have read theads where one guy's CZ 75 slide stop broke, and he borrowed a guys G34 to finish the IDPA, and now is a Glockaholic.

But I have also read where a guy sold all of his Glocks to buy CZ's.

Being that said, I think I have noticed the difference. Alot of "gamers" like Glocks, and a lot of range shooters prefer CZ's.

Glocks are light, cheap, durable, easy to modify, and parts are cheap.

CZ's are very accurate, and feel great in the hand.

Anyone else have any thoughts on that?

Glocks are pretty good. I have a couple. I do think they're kind of souless. But hey, they're still fun and a solid carry piece.

For the money, they're tough to beat.

I have a couple Glocks. I've had a G-27 for 12 years or so. Last Feb I got my G-30. The wife's late husband had a G-23 that's never been fired.So we have three of them here.Glocks' are nothing fancy,reasonably priced compared to allot of other guns out there.Mine are strickly carry guns and they do as designed to do.They go bang every time I squeeze the trigger.I can't ask for more then that.

While I am not a glock fan (only time i shot a glock it missfed, but from the reputation glock has, I will assume I had one that was not cleaned and or just the 1 in 100,000 crappy one.) There is worse things to be addicted to.

I have yet to get a addiction...but I might get one one day :)

I'm a recovering Glockaholic. Now I've moved on to Walthers and Sigs I'm terrified of what the post-Sigther addiction will do to my bank account, as I seem to be moving up the price ladder.

It's a much better idea than you even know. But if you do get a subcompact Glock, be sure to shoot it till you hate it the first couple times you are out with it. The heavier calibers are great for this. Then, wait a month or so and try it all over again, and take it very slow, making sure to shoot it like you want a single hole. Then you wil start to really enjoy it and see the potential of the odd looking little Glocks.

I really didn't like mine after the first two times out with it, but I have grown to love it.

So...which one is it? You cannot go wrong, or they are boring? :neener:

Glocks are soul-less....but they work. Had a Glock period that lasted until I came back to my senses and went back to 1911's. I still have a G17, but it's days are numbered, trade fodder for a Ruger SP101.

Fire a Kinber Ha (1911s are so old fashioned)...shoot a CZ and you'll never look back. (or a HK if ya go the dough to float that addiciton!)

I love the 9mm Glocks. The only Glock I'd consider buying besides the 26/19 is the new 20SF (10mm) that was just announced for release.

Bought my wife a G19 while I was on the road a bit 2 years ago. Now that I am not traveling for work, it is my daily carry choice. Untill I find a .40 or .45 that I can summer carry and that will be my new year round protection. I will be buying another Glock because of the price and they are tough to beat. Happy Glock owner here!

At least you're addicted to inexpsive ones. I've got the heroin of addictions -- HKs!+1 (If you have the number to an HK rehab facility, pm me!:))

I don't like the feelings of GLocks in my hand. I find the S&W M&P, Sigs and SPringfields, FNs, HKs to be more ergonomic and even prettier to look at than the glocks. But to each their own.

IMO, the 9mm Glocks are the best execution of the design. Since you have all three - maybe it is time to move on to another platform. I suggest you give consideration to 1911s.
