"HI PRICED TOY!! THAT JUST HAS A BIG NAME! THERE A JOKE TO LIGHT MOSTLY PLASTIC AND NO STEEL"
"Glocks are overated and cheaply made, I know of several issues with them and have never liked the way they feel or shoot, in Indiana's USPSA shoots, maybe 1 person uses a Glock, they are being replaced in a lot of PD's by Springfield XD's or S&W M&P."
"Glock sucks..........SIG SAUER all the way..........."
"Plastic garbage, that's what I think of the Glock 34."
Where does all that hate come from? Come on folks, there's a difference between speaking your honest opinion and blatantly bashing a firearm on unwarranted merits. "Plastic Garbage"? really? Is that why many of the biggest Police Departments in the country still continue to use them? Sig and S&W DO make great pistols, but that is not what the show was about. It was about using a Glock...why choose Glock? Why not, it is one of the most highly recognizable names in the industry and has a well established base here in the US. What do you think people are going to pay more attention to on the show...shooters using a well respected and know pistol like a Glock...or shooting targets with a 1919 Ortgies 7.65mm? I thought so...
Now there are a lot of folks on the same page as me defending them. No Glocks are not perfection as they claim...I think ergonomically and aesthetically they leave something to be desired..but functionally I have have very, very few issues with them going bang after thousands of rounds through mine.
Here is the vid from the show that I got the still from yesterday...
