    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.

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 shot Glocks for years and that is what I'm used to. I don't have a CZ, but want one. I'm startring to get bored with the Glock Perfection.

    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.
