My carry Glock is a 33, in 357sig. That is a compact by the way. Reliability is a major factor in a carry gun. Glock seems to meet that demand more than others. I also own Sigs, Colts, EAA, Ruger, and S&W. But Glock is what I carry.

glock is easy.pop the slide off,take the barrel and recoil spring out.drop it in the silver ware holder in the dishwasher and let er rip. lube and assemble

dishwashers don't hurt the night sights.bought my 17 gen 2 in 97 w/night sights.finaly replaced them 2 years ago.

Thanks from angelonm and Dougboffl

I've been a 1911 fan since day one and have always owned one or more.
But for SHTF my Glock 23 is the one I'll pack. Simple to operate and field strip and the biggest plus.....it has never, ever malfunctioned.

I have also been a 1911 fan since day one, I had one since I was a young teenager.
I practiced until I was proficient, even a showoff, I could field strip and reassemble my 1911 blindfolded in 30 seconds as a teenager. Breaking down a weapon for care isn't a big deal in my opinion. Maybe it was easier for me, I haven't messed with too many different kinds of handguns beyond shooting them.

For $500 a pistol that ypu can send back for any reason and they will fix or modify for free speaks for itself. Other than night sights they will do what ever you ask and be nice about it! Yea it's not a 1911 but when push comes to shove I have a G19 inside my belt 90% of the time. Looking forward to getting my new belt from Dwight as my old one is about shot!

G19 on duty and G26 off duty. I keep it simple.

I like the simplicity!

I'm thinking of taking it one small step further.......G17 on duty (required), G19 w/ light in the nightstand, and G26 off duty and plain clothes carry.

Replacing the trigger and bar is a 3 min job, and you only need a punch. I hate those serrated triggers!
One of my favorite things about a Glock is the 33 round 9mm mag and the 22 round .40S&W. My 34 sleeps in my nightstand loaded with 34 rounds. I have a friend(yes, I have one) that is a LEO. He said the canine officer he works with carries a Glock with the extended mag, as he only has one free hand while handling the dog, and he can't reload if needed.

Issued G22 on the belt during work. G23 in the bug out bag. M&P Shield.40 off duty but strongly considering a switch to the G43 and/or G27 for this role. Bedside is a P220 (45ACP) w/TRL-1S - also under consideration for conversion to a Glock.

I realize I perform better with a consistent battery of arms and stick with one design (duh). The Glocks are rock solid, dependable & easy to work on.

The thing I like about DA/SA is the deliberate long heavy DA first round. I feel more comfortable with that when walking around, weapon out, low ready (finger off the trigger of course) - hence the P220 is bedside.

My dept. switched from the Sig 226 in 40 S&W to Glock 21 in 45 ACP about a year ago. I was not happy with the switch at first as I could shoot the Sig very well. It took significant time to become able to manipulate the Glock trigger with any confidence. I will never love a Glock trigger like I do my Springfield loaded 1911. The Glock is a good duty weapon though and it gets dirty and wet and keeps running. I have picked up a 41 and a 36 as back up off, and off duty weapons, and generally carry them rather than the 1911.

I carried a Glock 19 on duty for over 21 years, zero issues, carried either the Glock 19 or 26 off duty same amount of time, zero issues.

Simplicity is not necessarily bad, they work, they are simple and while I do not work for Glock, I was trained as a Glock Armorer as well as a S&W Armorer. I love revolvers, but noticed early on that there are very few problems with a Glock that can not be easily fixed in the field.

Retired, I still own the same Model 19, and have added a Model 36, 23 and 42. I had some minor problems with the Model 23 which Glock more than fixed. I am thinking about a Model 43.

While Glocks may not be the most accurate pistols in the world, they work and they are simple.

I own and like many different types of pistols and revolvers, especially the .45 ACP and .38 Spl., but I carry a Glock most of the time.

I really miss my G19 Gen 2. Ten or so years ago, I was hard up for cash and sold it. I also had a G21 Gen 3. Sold that, too.
Ugh...the stupid things we do!!

I like my glock because it's cute, and it matches my nails when they're painted black...

Uh.. I mean...

<insert acceptable tough guy response>

Actually, I really just like it because it's so simple I can't not make it work. Fill it, rack it, point it that way, squeeze until slide locks open, repeat until your pockets are empty.

Much else and I might get overwhelmed
