If a situation came about where I would have to replace my current one (early "third generation" G19), sure, I would buy another.

Yes I would, but not all models. I've had a G22 and didn't like it. However, the Gen 4 G22's are supposed to address any drawbacks that I saw in the G22. Regardless, I'm not big on the .40 models. I would buy any 9mm or .45 though. The 10mm sounds interesting as well. I currently have 2 G19's (2nd gen and 3rd gen) and a 2nd gen G17.

Yes.
My G23 is my most reliable and durable pistol.
Never fails, never rusts. Easy to maintain springs, detail strip, etc.

I would not rush out to buy a new "Gen4" to replace mine unless it were stolen or something. I do want, at some point, to supplement it with a G26 "little brother," as it were.

Several Glocks, never any failures after thousands of rounds in maily .40SW and 9mm. Reliable, durable, accurate, affordable. Big fan here.

Glock is my favorite. That said, I'm not crazy about the new Generation 4s.

February 7, 2010, 10:27 AM
I've fired a whole bunch of rounds with both my 19 and 23. I'd replace either immediately with another Glock, if I should live long enough to actually have one wear out before I do!

Interesting results so far, two(2)no votes, yet every post indicates a decisive YES to owning another, interesting...

No, I have tried and tried to like the glock design, but just cannot get used to it. Many people like them, but the gun just doesn't fit my hand very well and I think that some of the other polymer gun manufacturers have surpassed glock.

If I bought a polymer gun again, it would probably be an XD9mm sub compact or an M&P 9mm compact model. I did just put a CZ p07 on layaway, so we will see how that goes.

I carry a 23 on duty, reliable, simple, but not comfortable for me at all. That said I probably wouldn't get another one by choice.

I've already got a 19 and a 26. For some inexplicable reason I think I want a G32 when the Gen4 version is available.

+1 for buying another Glock.

Mastifflover
February 7, 2010, 01:04 PM
I voted yes but it depends on the model. I love my G26 and its my EDC but I won't buy any .45 Glock. Too fat in the grip for my short fingers. Please don't suggest I buy a G36. If I'm limited to 7 rounds I'll carry a revolver.

ByAnyMeans
February 7, 2010, 01:09 PM
I have a Glock 26 and would love a G19 or two.

Strahley
February 7, 2010, 01:21 PM
Absolutely! I probably will later (to go with my G19), but there are other guns I want first (namely, a couple more West German SIGS)

Amazing guns

Yes my G26 has never missed a beat while shooting any type of ammo.

I have two G19's and one G23. I am waiting for the 4th Gen. model of the G19 for my next Glock.

Joe Demko
February 7, 2010, 02:58 PM
No. I had one of the earliest 1st gen pistols Glock 17 available in the US and then, years later a 19. Neither of those, nor the Glocks belonging to others that I have shot, impressed me. The ergonomics were all wrong for me and not easily altered. Accuracy was no better than so-so. When it comes to polymer guns, I prefer S&W Military and Police line or H&K's USP family.

If the price was good and it was different from the one G27 I have.

Poll for current and previous GLOCK owners only: Would you buy another GLOCK?


Yes. I've had a G19 for years that hasn't completely worn out yet, though a few parts have. I recall exactly one malfunction that wasn't the direct result of a broken part, and that was a stovepipe. As far as guns go, Glocks are reasonably priced, reliable, reasonably durable, lightweight, amenable to little or no care or upkeep.

Are there other guns out there just as good? Sure. And I'd be tempted to buy one of those, too, but I don't think I'd like being without a Glock.

swiftak
February 7, 2010, 05:30 PM
No. I bought a G19 because I wanted a Glock. Its a good gun, but I don't really care for the style. Its worked flawlessly for the 4 or so years that I've owned it. Having said that, I like the style of other pistols alot better.

I'm not actually answering the poll, since I've never actually owned a Glock; but if my Steyr M40A1 is any indicator as to how a Glock works? Sure!

Mags
February 7, 2010, 07:18 PM
The only Glock I love and would buy again would be the Glock 19, my 23 absolutely stunk. It would randomly fire more than one round with one pull of the trigger and was inaccurate. The Glock 21 is too blocky and gives me a weird sight picture. The G17 is too big for me and I may consider a G26 if it can fit my hand like a G19. But the G19 is an incredible gun.

Another 10mm for ME!! I love my G29 and will be in the market for its bigger brother the G20 with a Streamlight TLR-1 for HD!

I own 5. Need a G34 and a G20 though.

Sapper771
February 7, 2010, 09:43 PM
Absolutely ! Had plenty of them over the years, still have plenty of them now.

Rodentman
February 7, 2010, 09:58 PM
I have a G17 and a G20. Not my favorite design. Grip is improved using the Hogue slip on. I prefer the feel of my Sig P229 to the Glock. But they are reliable, light, and I would buy another.

Fiv3r
February 7, 2010, 10:14 PM
Absolutely. A lil' fugly but all business and works everytime I pull the trigger.

wally
February 7, 2010, 10:35 PM
No more for me, I've a 17, 21 & 20SF, while reliable, they just don't fit me and I do better with every other handgun I've ever shot.

Mags are easy to find and reasonably priced, I'd love them if I could shoot at least average with them, despite their being ugly. The SF helps but not enough.

I had a Generation 1 glock 17 that I bought several yers ago. The gun was a absolute peice of crap. So I have been a devote glock basher for some time. On a recent trip to the range I got the chance to fire a Gen 3 glock 19. Night and day diffrence in operation and shootability. I have not come over to the dark side but am willing to give them a second chance.

I would buy another Glock, but only if it doesn't have a dual spring guide rod.

CajunBass
February 8, 2010, 06:08 AM
Why wouldn't I? :confused:

I don't "own" one, but my wife does so I shoot it from time to time. It's a good gun. I might get one for myself one of these days.

Chimbarazo
February 8, 2010, 07:52 AM
No, and I have had a couple 26s, a 34, a 17 and a 19, and never did like them, although the 34 was the best of the lot.

I have just found pistols that were a lot more comfortable in the hand then the Glock. It is a fine design, but just not for me.

thekiltedgreatrob
February 8, 2010, 12:52 PM
After years of knocking "tupperware" I bought a G21 from a buddie that was in dire straits and needed 200.00 so I became a proud owner of the gun I said [I] would never own after a trip to the range and finding out that my 200 glock was more acraute than my 1000.00 Springfield and held 13 rounds (I had allways said if you cant do it with 6 rounds you are in the wrong place) now my daily carry gun is a G21C

i have owned a model 19, and i currently have a model 23, though it is not my prefered polymer handgun, i like the 23, and the 19. I highly recommend them and i would buy another in the future.

uspJ
February 8, 2010, 02:19 PM
i've owned a 30, 23 and just got a 26. now i want a 19 to go with my 26. i like the 9mm glocks better than the other models. i would most likely buy another.

RP88
February 8, 2010, 02:24 PM
I have a G17. If I found a use for another Glock, I would get one. No sour taste or bad feelings about Glock whatsoever.

BlayGlock
February 8, 2010, 02:27 PM
Yes. I have a 19 and a 29. I need a 34.

ljnowell
February 8, 2010, 02:30 PM
My answer is no. My g21 is a great gun, I would never sell it. One looks and feels just like the other though, and I have no desire to own another one.

I am buying another this week.

PAPACHUCK
February 8, 2010, 04:48 PM
No. I've owned two Glocks, a 19 and a 22. I've also put considerable time in with a 23 and a 32. I've been a Glock Armorer for years. They are a good gun, but they are not for me. I transitioned to the XD platform now and am quite happy with my three XD's.

okespe04
February 8, 2010, 05:48 PM
Glocks are fine, so are 1911s and revolvers. I have a G19 and like it a lot. I guess I would buy another.

CPshooter
February 8, 2010, 06:04 PM
I wouldn't. I've owned two 19s, a 26, and a 27. I can't say they are bad guns, necessarily, but ever since I purchased my first H&K (a USP.40c) a few years ago I don't feel that Glocks are up to par. Still great guns for the money, but I can't see myself buying another.

I'm not in any hurry to get another but I wouldn't rule it out in the future.

Katana8869
February 8, 2010, 08:18 PM
I started carrying Glocks in the 90's mainly due to their reliability and ease of maintenance. However, there are products on the market now such as the Springfield XD series that offer the same thing with improvements like better grip angles, fully supported chambers, all steel guide rods, ect that make them a better buy IMO. I still have a Glock 26 that I will never part with, but my last 2 purchases were SA XD's.

RevDerb
February 8, 2010, 08:31 PM
I have owned a total of 12 Glocks and would definitely own another (one, two or three). I'm just not in a Glock (or even handgun) mode right now.

JEB
February 8, 2010, 09:04 PM
well look at that.....i saw the same thread but for kimbers and i wondered if us glock fans would get a go!

to answer the question, yes! ive got the 22, and the 27. to more and i will have the full set of 40s. must...fight...urge...for....more..........ah whats the point? resistance is Futile!:D

I would own another one.

gbran
February 8, 2010, 10:24 PM
I own 14 handguns, 3 of which are Glocks. If they were all on a table and I had to grab one to save my life, it would be one of the Glocks.

VerdeVolpe
February 8, 2010, 10:33 PM
No, I would'nt buy another Glock, unless they built a single stack 9mm. I really like the design and simplicity of Glock and have had a 17,26,34 and a 36 but I just did'nt like the grip on any of them, except the 36. I got rid of them all. The 36 was sold for reasons other than the grip feel. Glock builds an excellent pistol, but I can't work with the the angle of it's boulbous grip. Just feels odd.

AOK
February 8, 2010, 10:44 PM
I currently own a 23 and I purchased a 27 back in June. Next gun will most likely be another Glock sometime this summer (either a 19 or another 23). It's one of the few brands that I would ever spend my money on.

ajoker31
February 8, 2010, 10:50 PM
I agree with gbran's post above......I've also owned several pistols and still own quite a few. Glock is also my first choice (of ANY pistol) if my life depended on it.

I have quite a few handguns, but only one Glock, a G32.
I wouldn't mind getting a G19, it would be basically the same gun but cheaper to feed for practice.
