This thread reminds me of something that Mark Twain reportedly said.........

"The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated."

Glock is thriving.

And for good reason. They're the best.

I’ve owned & sold a few gen 4s over the years, including a G21 & G40.
I’m not big on aftermarket stuff, maybe a few things but I’m not one to spend $500 on a handgun and another $500 on upgrades to fix what should have been done in the factory. Still have my g32 and IMHO the g19/g32 size frame is a nice compromise between carry size & duty size. But yea, newer designs are allowing Glock to show their age, especially the 43/42 compared to the newer compacts

a bit harsh maybe but here goes anyway - any member preferring plastic w/out a hammer double and/or single action should be banned. 'nuff said.

Harsh maybe but I agree. Striker fire weapons are for girls.

The only people I’ve ever heard to make remarks like this are wallowing in low skill levels and couldn’t complete a standard drill cleanly if their lives depended on it.

I never saw anyone practicing the Mozambican drills
while on the battlefield.
It's not the bullet with your name on it you have to
worry about, it's all the others labeled to whom it
may concern.
I thought that comment would rattle some cages.
Guess I was right.
Anyone own a polymer frame 44 mag, 454 cas, 50 ae
or any other large bore high energy pistol?
Curt when I get down your way I will be sure to look
you and sand up. Buying you ammo, I'll be happy if
I can afford the gas to get there.

Strange that you see a lot of polymer, striker fired guns on the battlefield and never see 1911’s.

Hell, MARSOC wised up and replaced their barely used M45’s with G19’s.

figured to elicit some responses (surely you realize this is 'tongue in cheek' since the mods rule the forum) - but any 'challenge' you just handicap me since I'm mostly wheel chair bound - can hop around some using my arm crutches - my 5903 is up to it no problem. nothing wrong with my vision or hand-eye coordination although I haven't fired any firearms but my .22s my Marlin 9mm camp gun and a few cylinders full of my replica '58 Army .44 since Veterans day '19. I had to go into hospital, convalescence and therapy for nearly a year beginning 12/19. hoping to be able enough to run a drill in future sooner rather than later though.
BTW my favorite 9mm is the CZ75 (don't own but would like to, KelTec PCC has available mag wells set-up that swaps) I have the S&W not only due to good pistol (at least 500 rounds through most +P handload) but magazine interchange with my Marlin 9mm.
I'm well aware of makes of PCCs that swap glock mags. I do however have 2 cousins both now retired LEO who experienced AD discharges of their duty glocks when they (1) was knocked off a desk (9mm) the other was getting out of his duty vehicle somehow managed to AD his .45 - both instances w/in weeks of the other back in late '90s. the .45 slug struck the poor fellow upper inner thigh nearly de-nutting him, he recovers well and finished out his retirement other 9mm went through the hung ceiling, insulation and out of a built-up type flat roof. I know the 9 was HP, assume the 45 also.

In my military service time the Colt 45 and S&W 357 were the
only handguns issued. Only weapon that had any plastic
was the ar10 and m16.
Prefer what you like as will I.
A cocked and locked 45 is a safer carry than any striker
fire in my opinion.

You probably think that because you rarely do any actual training.

Ah another oracle who knows and sees all.
I like rye bread can drink rye whiskey
but don't think much of rye new york.
Or am I telling you things you already knew
being an oracle and all seeing eye.
Keep it up your good for a laugh.
With any luck you will be able to blow the
whistle on the train soon.

Well, for one thing there are zero safety issues with striker fired guns which aren’t present with anything else.
So, to not understand that speaks volumes of your skill/experience level.

Really, a pissing contest over striker versus non striker fired pistols? We can do better. I don't like strikers. Cause I can't see the hammer. I have fired strikers, yes, of all different types. Would I own a striker. Yes. Preferred would be a CZ or a 1911. Does this make me a bad person. Probably. Are strikers used world wide by current militaries because they work. Heck yeah. Does that make me want one or like one more, not really. Glock has been copied so many times now that their value has to have taken a beating. If I was to get a striker, a Glock might be the choice simply because they were the original. My thoughts, and just that.

No pissing contest I have my opinions and stated them.
The oracle of rye knows nothing about me but is making judgments
about my competence with no proof.
Bottom line I will not change my attitude toward striker fire
weapons so why the does he keep trying to make me a convert.
Everyone knows I'm a hard headed sob and will not change
what I believe whats best for me or give up when called out.
No proof judgments show Ontos to be an oracle in my opinion.
Ontos I really do not care what you think you know about my
proficiency, but guessing shows a major flaw in your thought
processes.

Just going off of a couple of decades of experience hearing the same unfounded commentary.

Similarly, when I hear someone talk about point shooting and how you’ll “never see your sights in a gunfight” I know they will crumble and seriously underperform when called upon in even the most simplistic drill.

After awhile it becomes so predictable it’s just boring.
