    I just want to throw one more post on here that I am a Glock fan. I dont consider myself a fanatic though. I like and own other guns and have no problem admitting it!!!

    I thought this would be dead by now too. I have to ask though, why the dislike of the .45 glock? I understand the .40, high pressure load and all that(though the newer glocks have a LOT more case support), but why the .45? Thats actually the only one that I have, and the only one I care to have to be honest. Thats not because I dont like the 9mm round, I just cant see owning more than one glock. Its like owning two identical pairs of shoes, why?

    While yes I do like glocks and have shot them frequently I must disappoint you I still have all my limbs. ;)

    THANK YOU!!!!. this is the point I was trying to make in a earlier post on this thread. However I must say that the anti glock side is not innocent of a certain fanaticism. May I also add that not all "glockers" are fanatics, and most of us appreciate guns outside of glocks for example I also have a Colt Python. I would just like to point out that all models and makes can go kaboom. there is no such thing as a perfect gun if there would be this forum would not exist.

    I here that. If you want to see a good thread check the one about which firearms people own that have had NO failures. Glocks are there in spades but so are HKs, Sigs, S&W, and others. There are a lot of quality firearms out there. The Glock may have forced polymer into the mainstream but other than that its just another good weapon. I call my M&P "Glock 2.0" because I feel its what a Glock should be. (I'm sure somebody will get POed by that statement) Its a tough, proven design with a fully supported chamber. quality steel sights, and a customizable grip. Other than those factors its basically a Glock design. When I compared them side to side I really liked the M&P better. After a few years with it I'm even more sold and perplexed why Glock hasn't even hinted at an update. have they? I would love to see what they do next.

    Here is some good reading while we wait for the nest "upgrade"
