I have come to a conclusion- (well an opinion) Glocks are the best pistol there is. Period. Cheap, alot of aftermarket parts, professional support, reliable, simple, and I'm sure there's more. I don't like them, I think they're ugly as hell; but I respect them lol. What do you people think? And what is your favorite pistol? (I'm thinking more along the lines of service/duty pistols, and not revolvers btw)


My personal favorite is the imi jericho/cz-75. I have a jericho; and in chrome, yes that's right- CHROME!!!

Nothing wrong with a Glock. I like pistols with a low bore axis, but prefer steel or alloy. P7, and the CZ-75 variants are two that come to mind.

I may pick up a G19 someday when/if I get over the polymer thing, as I think that is their sweet spot.

I'm sorry but I looked up "Snark Magnet" in the dictionary and they referred me to this thread.... The interwebs are fun!

I cringe whenever the word BEST is issued.

"Best" is not an option. State an opinion. Describe why you feel this opinion may be merited. Discuss sensibly.

Glocks are great but they are the handgun equivalent to a beige Toyota Corolla. They're fine but they lack any sort of personality.

The best handgun for you when the **** hits the fan is the NEAREST handgun to you. Glocks serve that purpose well for the most part but a lot of us like to have something else.... There is no BEST.

What handgun makes you feel COMPETENT and PREPARED? That's what's best for you.

well my old Glock19 had one stovepipe in about 1,200 rounds. still trustworthy reliability though.

whereas my cz75 has never jammed in over 13,000 rounds.

so, for me, the cz75 is best. beats the glock in accuracy too.

so far, i've put 700 rounds through my new g19 rtf2 with no probs and accuracy is a little tighter than the old one.

if i were a security contractor in iraq, i would take the glock because parts are cheap and easier to find, plus it's easier to work on.

several security contractors i've talked to said the overwhelming choice for those that can choose their sidearm in iraq choose glock 9mm's. they're covered with that powder like sand over there and still keep working.


it's all just opinion though :)

Glocks work for me as is. And for me, in my hand, the Glock (9mm's) are the best pistol.

Glock has 48 models, 7 calibers and a aftermarket support universe like no other on the market.

As a company Glock has the metal to stick with even marginally popular calibers. (10mm fans should thank Glock twice daily)

I was of the opinion that Glock makes a pretty good gun until a clerk in a gun shop informed me that they are not accurate beyond 20-25 yards. I guess there is something wrong with mine because I usually set up my cans at 30-40 yards, and usually hit them.

The Glocks have there place. Reliable, easy to clean and parts are cheap. Accuracy is ok out to 20 to 25 yrds. Mostly plastic so maybe won't rust. Now the other features are butt ugly, fair trigger and they just don't have a mystic of say a 1911, Sig, Beretta, Springfield etc... Come to think about it the Glock pistol is pretty much like my Hi Point. Butt ugly, mostly plastic, fair accuracy and easy to shoot. I would give the advantage to Glock for ease of take down. But at the range, I shoot pretty much like the guys next to me with their Glocks. I just did not pay $600.00 out the door for my Hi Point.

Finally, I am not bashing Glocks. But I will not compare a Glock to a Sig, Beretta, CZ, Springfield, Kimber, Smith and Wesson third generation or the many fine 1911s out there. I do think the Glock is probably the best polymer frame gun but I can't compare the Glock to a good steel frame sem-auto. Its like comparing apples versus oranges.

For not bashing Glock you seem to have pulled it off anyway.

Is it OK to bash but hide behind the veil of opinion?

Not all the gun makers you mentioned have steel frames. Many have alloy frames. For many gunmakers the last steel guns are the 1911 they make. The future of gunmaking is not steel and wood.

Every time I look at guns I always look at the Glocks. So many manufacturers would not copy their design if they were not a great gun. But, I also believe a lot of their competitors have improved on their original design.

My problem is that Glocks just do not feel comfortable in my hand and to me they do not have a natural point of aim. That of course is my opinion and varies from person to person.

"Best" will never be best for everyone no matter if we are talking about guns or women, because "best" is different for everyone. That is why we have options. So in conclusion I think a better title would have been "Glock is a great pistol"

If you ask for an opinion on Hi-Point's here at THR, what do they tell you?

Well, If I had to own one I would because they go bang every time you pull the trigger but they are ugly as sin and if I could afford more I would get a better gun.

Same thing is always said about the Glocks except for the cost part. They are reliable, but ugly.

Sure, the glock is a finer weapon. No arguing that, but you also pay 4-6 TIMES more for it. So, unless polymer guns are your thing, there is a lot to compare between the two.

If price were equal, I would buy the glock every time. Many people I know and respect swear my them. Good enough for me.

People often buy them because they hear that LEOs use them. LEOs often use them because that's what the department issues. Departments often issue them because Glock darn near gives them away (I'm not sure if there is a less expensive firearm for an LEO to buy. I know Glock gives huge discounts to people who work at gun shops or in the hunting department of sporting goods stores).

I don't like Glocks because they don't feel as natural in my hand as a number of other guns do and I am not partial to trick triggers and DAO, striker-fired pistols. However, a lot of people do like Glocks and that's just fine.

Does that mean it's the best gun? No. More people buy Chevys than buy Mercedes but the Mercedes is a better car. However, both will get you from Point A to Point B in reasonable comfort and a Glock will likely be just as dependable as a another firearm when the chips are down.

Yea but it is even uglier than the Glock.

Ane price is not the only reason why LEOs use them. They are reliable. They are easy to use. They are easy to work on. Glock is a great design. The term best is somewhat subjective however, I do not know that I could say they are the "best." I have a couple and I like them, but I carry a Kahr just as often as my G19.

I am not knocking Glock, but there are a number of pistols that are reliable, easy-to-use and easy on the department armorer. Glock had a very favorable price and an excellent support system that was probably better than their competition. That's not criticism; that's praise. That was how Beretta beat SIG for the U.S. Army contract; the SIG pistol actually outperformed the Beretta in some areas but the support was much more expensive and the Beretta was (and is, judging by the new business Beretta just got) a very serviceable pistol.

The problem with "best" is that the market is crowded with reliable, well-made service firearms from Beretta, FN Herstal, Glock, H&K, Ruger, SIG Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, Walther and others. Checking the local ads, I find that if you have $600, you can buy a Beretta PX4 Storm, Beretta 92F, FHP-9 or FNP-40, a Glock 17, a Springfield XD, a S&W M&P and get a fair amount of change in return. I don't know about you, but I would be confident with any of the above in a duty holster. They're a bit bulky for summertime CC, but when it's jacket weather they'd be hard to beat.

The fact that you compare a Glock and a hipoint simply shows your opinions should be ignored, and are by the vast, vast majority of the shooters in the world.

However, my problem was when people are free to hate or bash and try to stir people up and hide behind the guise of "its my opinion".

^^^so what if the guy has a hi point, and compared it to glocks? maybe they do shoot similarly for him. i don't see him bashing any brand. i only see someone bashing him for posting his polite opinion. not cool.

Don't you have your own issues stiring the pot and giving your opinions over on the XD compared to a Glock thread going on?

His speaking of Glock was not polite opinion it was designed to stir people up. I guess that's cool though.

But hey, that's my opinion!

I know it does not matter, no one cares and I am just going to type a message that will be of little importance... but I will anyway.

Sure, I joke... I own a hi-point... and I am poor... but I have filled all of the need for cheap guns and I am not purchasing better quality guns.

I want a glock!! It is #3 on my list of upcoming purchases... and I will tell you why...

I know several people who own them, two of my cop friends and a local smith who specializes in, and customizes 1911's.... all three of the above mentioned carry Glocks. If these three guys, who I know well and trust think a Glock will do the job for them, then that is good enough for me.

My next purchase will be a 1911, then an M1 Garand, but... in 2011 it is a glock for sure!

My Glocks just seem to fit my hand. The sights work for me; I shoot better with Glocks than with anything else I've tried. I've never had a single problem with reliability with any Glock. They always fire when I pull the trigger.

I'll shoot anything I can get my hands on, but until I find something that works better for me, I'm keeping my Glocks.

Most people seem to get "stirred up" just because someone has a different opinion. But that's just my opinion.

We are all stating our own opinions. That is what a forum is for. I could of compared a Glock to a XD but I have never used a XD. I compared the Glock to my Hi point because they felt and shoot similar to me. There is really not a answer to this thread anyway. Everybody is going to think diffenent because of their experience. Like I said in previous posts. I don't believe the Glock is the best semi-auto out there. They definitely have a place. They are good on what they do but compared to some of the brands I have seen and had any experience with they are not at the top of my list.

I carry an Fn. Mine is an FNP 40 and I love it. Comes with 3-14 round stainless mags, a gun lock, two interchangible backstraps, ambi-decocker, reversible mag release, night sights, loaded chamber indicator, accessory rail, replacable frame rails. I got it used, but it's alot of gun for $450.

A couple of my leo friends like and carry glocks and my dad even carries a glock. I've tried glock on several different occassions. All ended with the same conclusion FOR ME.

Glocks are reliable, easy to shoot, easy to clean,etc...

I dislike the sights, the grip doesn't fit my hand right, the trigger is inferior to the XD.

I'm not a glock basher, they're just not for me. love my CZ-75b though.

Best pistol for what? Looks?

Well Glock is a decent company for the support it gives to shooting sports, its support of the 2nd amendment, and its willingness to allow its parts to be readily available to the public. (it also tries to ignore Lawyer requirements on its guns)

So they are less willing to admit recalls than say Ruger but if that's the business model they choose. They are not the only big company not to admit issues.


And it sticks to a caliber, even marginally popular ones, and has never discontinued a gun (even the 17L and 35)

And its production line up is quite substantial

1. Soon to be Gen 4 G22/G17 (others to follow)
2. the 17/22/19/23 in the RTF 2 grip
3. 17
4. 22
5. 24
6. 17L
7. 19
8. 23
9. 20
10. 20SF
11. 21
12. 21SF
13. 25
14. 26
15. 27
16. 28
17. 29
18. 29SF
19. 30
20. 30SF
21. 31
22. 32
23. 33
24. 34
25. 35
26. 36
27. 37
28. 38
29. 39
30. 18

so 9mm, 10mm, 357Sig, 45ACP, 45GAP, 40SW and 380 and a full auto model, of course some Glocks are not allowed in the US.

So to say GLOCK is the best would be subjective, lots of Glocks out there, if they don't do it or you, Great. I'm glad we have choice the more guns on the market the better.
