Exclamation One Reason Why I Like a Glock

For the past 8 years I've been carrying a G17 as a primary duty pistol.

Off and on I would qualify (day and night) with my HK P7M8, but I usually just tote my G17 around and I never really had a P7M8 holster that worked well for me.
Recently that changed. I bought a Blade-Tech holster as well as a Don Hume J.I.T. Slide 25 and qualified with the P7M8. All is well with world.

I love my P7M8...............until I had to clean it. For the love of God they sure are complicated!!!

There's something to be said about simplicity. Glock pistols sure are simple to operate AND clean. To me that's a HUGE bonus, and one that many folks don't often mention. I know I've taken their simplicity for granted, but I'm half tempted to pick up a G26 as my off duty pistol and keep the P7M8 in the safe.

Love my G26 and G36, they are very reliable and both are shooters.

My HK VP9 and Sig P320 are as easy (if not easier) to clean than my old glock.

If you can rent one or borrow one, give the Sig P320 subcompact a shot before picking up a new G26. I wasn't a fan of Sig as the higher bore axis threw me off...until I picked up and shot the P320. That trigger out of the box compared to the Glock

Thanks from tonyben

Wanna watch a Sig armorer's head spin, show him how to detail strip a Glock

I do have to admit, the trigger on the P320 is nice. However, while the full sized pistol was nice to shoot, I didn't like the subcompact. It didn't have the weight of the full size to offset the high bore axis. It definitely wanted to flip more than a G26.

Wait!!! Brian, you've just cleaned it for the first time? And you've had it how long???

I'd try a Glock. Maybe. But they just feel like holding a 2x4 in my hand. I know they are good tools but they leave me cold. That's just me though...

I love my Glocks! My only issue is that I don't have more. Yes, cleaning them is a snap! I detail stripped and cleaned mine last week and it was just stupid easy. Can't say the same about my Sig's and 1911's (which I also love to shoot).

Tony.

Question for a new reloader: Does a Glock fired case size and reshape easily? I have heard that their unsupported chamber is a measuring problem after firing?

Just curious, I have nothing against Glocks.

Its the 1911 of the late 20th century...... Perfect for my needs... I didn't know John Browning Designed the Glock.

I loaded up 1000 40 cal range brass for a friend, and we ran them thru this; no problems at all.

I've never broken down a glock but it can't be much quicker than my cz75b, or u
Bersa ultra compact pro. Less than 30 seconds to break them down.

The fired cases resize just fine. Only ones that were stubborn were from a G20. I love my glock, will add a couple more.

The grip angle on them is what kills me and the sights and the square blockiness. Ultra reliable and simple....I will give you that.

I've used this for my 40 reloads for years. Works like a charm! I've never tried reloading any 40 without using that die, so I can't say what it would have been without it.
