To Glock or not to Glock...

Every time I pick up a Glock its aimed at the ceiling. It takes only a split second for me to correct, but that is a split second that is not required on any other gun.

I wonder if those that shoot Glocks more than myself have to concentrate at all on maintaining the correct grip angle when switching back and forth?

OK.... that's the craziest thing I think I'll hear today! LMAO!

The grip angle of the Glock is SO overblown it's actually laughable. I switch back and forth. Can dual wield a Glock and an XD at the same time, and wonder what ALL that grip hubub is all about??

I transition between my 1911s, Hi-Power, SIGs and Glocks with little troubles.

Once you have shot Glocks for a while and are used to them...the transition will not seem odd at all. For those that have shot only an XD or a 1911...yeah...it will feel strange at first but if you buy a G17 or G19 and shoot it a lot...it will NOT seem strange after a while.

The Glock 19 is a very easy pistol to pick up and hit well with it in a few sessions. I have taken people that have never shot an autopistol out and they were hitting Coke cans with my G19 or G17 in a few magazines.

That said, if you are wanting to buy a Glock...I would not worry about transition at all as long as you DO plan on shooting it alot and becoming familiar with it.

I admit...I really like the Glock platform mainly because I bought my first (of three) Glocks back when it was the ONLY polymer striker pistol out there. I am just very used to it. However, if you buy one and shoot it often...there is no reason you too cannot learn to like this platform.

Go for the Glock you will not be disappointed. And the grip to me is just right on the gen 4. Went from xd and sig, no regrets. I love carrying iwb 15 rounds too!

I have no trouble transitioning between Glocks, 1911's and hammer fired, DA to SA guns either. It does require some practice with each platform though and a cognitive understanding that when you pick up a different format, your brain automatically needs to understand that the trigger is different and requires a slightly different technique. At least for me.

I can't stand the way a Glock feels in my hand, but if I could, I'd get one. A G19 is a fine gun.

Step over to the dark side!
I think you will like the G19.
I have a Gen4 19 and really like it. Since i have smaller hand, the Gen 4 fits better than the Gen3.
