I sorta collect Glocks. Fell hard for them when I was in the service. Can't have to many Glocks. I do own Colt and S&W too. Just sold on Glock though.

The Glock .45 auto is the SMOOTHEST shooting .45 I have ever shot. :D

My first experience in life with .45's was in the service. One of my specialities in the service was Nuclear Weapons. Our main weapon was a M16 and we were also issued side arms, the Colt M1911 .45.

Comparing the recoil from a steel framed .45 1911 and a polymer framed Glock is night/day difference. I LOVE .45 since it was the first I cut my teeth on as a young man.

I was introduced to Glock in the 1980's in Germany. I was at the Grafenveer training area and our 1st Sgt asked us if we wanted to shoot a plastic gun. It was a generation 1 G17. I could not believe how soft that thing was. But, it's also a 9mm vs a steel framed .45. But still, I liked it.

That was in 82 or 83. Roll clock forward to 1989 and I had just returned from South Korea and was at Ft Lewis Wa., Rod/Gun Club. There in the case was Glock. I knew exactly what it was and I wanted it soooo bad. I passed on the buy because I was leaving the service to go to college and decided I needed my money for tution/books (which I did).

So, I delayed gratification for many years. I graduated, started my new career and tody, I have amassed MANY Glocks. Those pics, are but a few. I have MANY. I'm a Glock and AR freak LOL. And I'm in the medical field. Imagine that. :lol:

Tim, thanks for time gathering and posting the very informative narrative.

When I was a deputy sheriff, my hip-hugger was a S&W .38 Special. The Glocks were coming on as replacements. Vision and hearing problems required my leaving the SO before I was issued a Glock.

I MUCH prefer the Glock than any other side arm. They have inherent advantages.

1) they are lighter to carry;
2) they are EXTEREMELY reliable, even when abused;
3) reliability is "built into them" by their nature of only having 33 parts; their ABSOLUTE simplicity lends to reliability.
4) you will not find rust and corrosion problems either; not that I've ever experienced anyway. And I do have a 'few' lol.

ADD: their frames are "common" among many different calibers/models, so, the 9mm double stack pistols, most ALL the parts are interchangeable too. With the big bores (10mm and .45auto) they share frames too.

Most pistols have at a minimun 77 to 100+ parts. So, only having 33 parts makes them so freaking simple, it lends to their reliability. Last time I checked, that's what made their name; that and less weight to carry around.

I believe that the G19 is arguably the best sidearm a operator could carry into battle. Takes less real estate on the body, lighter load to carry and they always go bang when you have everything on the line and REALLY need it to go bang. That's why the Marines, Seals and Army are stocking them now. Many of them now have national stock numbers assigned so our guys can have a choice.

The FBI just choose Glock (again) as well. New ones are being built in Ga as I write this. The first 10k pistols to be delievered in Nov.
