OK, Open minded and honest.
NOTHING is perfect. Not even Glocks.
What Glock owners are trying to communicate however, is that an overwhelming majority of us are having NO
We as a group, are very happy with that. For a shooter that places the safety of him or herself, and his/her partner wearing a Glock, rumors have no place.
We prefer to deal with what we have seen ,and what we have experienced: as a group. Which up to this point has been unparalleled sucess!
For experienced shooters and trainers, we have seen too many neophyte shooters and younger officers over the years, start rumors and on the basis of THEIR TASTE IN FIREARMS, sway managers and city fathers into purchasing the pistol they
like, based on TASTE, NOT FUNCTION. ("I LIKE so and so, they have sexier grips, ...and on and on."
) Doubting Thomases can destroy a shooter's confidence with the "what if?" rumor almost over night.
Yes, we as a group of shooters reject and banish people with bad things to say about Glocks....by and large we haven't seen it. It is a kind of gospel message for us.
From what I KNOW, when there is a problem, or when one can be researched and predicted, Glock steps in and BOOM! Fixes it. (recall) Yes, somebody has to be the first to have a problem, and people talk...let's talk percentages....major cities like New York and Detroit Police Departments have been the American proving grounds for Glock, and they are very happy with them...no, Smith and Wesson is not, Colt and Ruger are not. This pistol has a specific function...You shoot thousands of training rounds with it, YOU FIGHT WITH IT, TO SAVE YOUR LIFE! ....and it works better that ALL OF THE COMPETITORS!!!
I'm sure I have said enough, where's the Tylenol?
