    I’ve never bought a Glock. I understand people that love them, especially those heavily invested in the brand with tons of mags, etc, but to me HK and Sig is where it is at in my opinion. I carry my VP9 daily. Hard to beat in my opinion. It’s all in what you want. If it makes you feel dirty, just don’t tell your friends. Lol. If I ever do, I’d go with a 19, or a full size 10mm. Those two are my favorites, but no, I don’t own them, I swear! Lol

    I carry a Glock Gen 2. It's basically a Glock Gen 5. Never liked the 3 and 4. Glad to see them offering something without finger grooves.

    I was VERY interested in the HK USP's when they first came out in late 90's but they never put a decent trigger in any of them. I really want to love that gun but it's the longest, worst trigger in any gun. I do have an HK P7M13 that I love. That's probably the best handgun ever made, but very heavy.

    Sigs have always been awesome.

    unapologetic glock fan here. the price is right, it always works, and you can get parts / accessories almost anywhere. i don't mind the finger grooves at all. my 43 is the best CC gun i've ever had.

    I don't know what to think about you people and your Australian pistols.

    It’s funny how people are different. I’ve carried a Glock almost every day for over 20 years. But I really don’t like that 43. I thought I would love it. But I rarely carry it. End up just carrying the 26.

    But Allen’s making me a new holster for it so I’ll give it another shot.

    I carry at least one glock daily and 2 at work they are the Esee knives of the pistol world they aren't fancy or outrageous just good simple and rugged I have 2 gen 4's and I have small hands so I would deff be interested in the Gen 5 but it will probably be about 5 years before my department ok's them for use hell they still haven't cleared the G19 gen 4 they still issue the gen 3 and they just allowed the g17 Gen 4, I usually carry a 17 and 26 but would love to get my hands on the G19 gen 5

    For some reason a hate glocks. Always have. Been carrying a G43 for the last 2 years after other firearms weren’t to my liking. I️ would have stayed with the shield but the mags wouldn’t always seat which was a problem for me. I shot it better than the g43 however the glock just carry’s better. Most likely adding a G17 to the homestead soon. Hard to beat since I get the Blue line discount on glocks. Just under $400 for the 26,19,17 type guns.

    I always felt the 43 was too big for its intended purpose. If the side profile was the same as the 42, I think it would be easier to conceal. To me, if I was going to carry a 43, I’d just carry a 19. Just a humble opinion of a non Glock owner. I’ve shot and folded a few though. ;)

    The 43 was late to the party but is great for its intended purpose. The problem I have carrying the 19 sized gun is I can’t make it smaller but I can make the 43 bigger. Living in IL I don’t want to print at all. Lots of sheep here. The 43 disappears even with my manly tight shirts. Flush mag GTG. Loose T-shirts/sweatshirts/vest I’ll add the +3 Taran Tactical baseplate. G19 grip just thinner. Also in my right pocket I always carry a pocket holster so I can switch over to pocket carry if needed. I carry 4 mags total. 1- factory flush mag and 3- +3 TT mags so total of 34 rounds. Also running a Streamlight TLR-6 on the gun. That’s a lot for a small package.

    Lol. I would like to re-state that I’m not a hater. I think they are good reliable guns. Just not my choice. I’ll probably end up with a 19 some day just for the heck of it. Nah. But I do give them the respect they deserve.

    Here! I don't mind shooting glocks but I have just never been completely comfortable with carrying them with the almost single action light weight trigger pull. Sig classic line is perfect for me, picking up a made in germany p220 today!
