I see some die hard Glock fans on here. Make your case.....
Why do some people like chevy's and not fords and vice versa.. all on personal fav.

I myself have a glock, xd, and a walther and i seem to shoot better with the glock. Not that i dislike any of the others at all. Infact the walther and xd are the ones i carry on me. The glock stays home and at the range that's about it. To me seems like you can "accessorize" a glock alot better than some. Though i like to be diverse so my next one probably one be any of the mfg. that i already have, instead a different one. Why have a bunch of the same guns in just the dif calibers i dunno? infact my one glock is a .40, 9, and soon to be a .357sig as well.

Interchangeable magazines in different models.

Very reliable . . . keeps going and going like the EverReady bunny.

Is not picky about ammo.

Easy to strip and clean.

No safety, but safe.

Fairly cheap to buy.

How much room we got here?
1st. Reliability. Yes alot of other makes are reliable, but not the exact same as a Glock IMO.
2nd. Avaliablity of mags, parts, info.
3rd. LEO's use them. If they trust them, so should you IMO.
4th. Price.
5th. Accuracy. They are dead on right out the box.
6th. Customer Service if needed, A+++. Just ask around. Where else could u sen your gun and they completely rebuild to factory spec for free.
7th. Everybody has one or atleast greater than 85% or the population of handgun owners and if you have a 9mm and a 40S&W Glock, you will be able to find Mags and ammo when it hits the fan.
8th. Why not have one of the best shooting handguns on the market. XD is catching up and not far behind I will say and nothing wrong with XD, I prefer Glock like thousands of others.
9th. Never had a rusting issue like M&P does. 4 drops of oil is all the lube required.
10th. Glocks Rock. You shoot one a thousand rounds and I'll bet you'll hafta have one.
That's my case. Rock on.

Same as the others.
Dead accurate right out of the box.
No adjustments, tweaking necessary.
Glocks fit my hand like a glove (a personal preference here).
Decent price.
Accessory availability and factory support.
From my experience, feeds any and every type of ammo without so much as a hiccup.
Design absorbs recoil (esp in 45ACP and 10mm).
Easily cleaned and maintained.
NO issues with the finish coming off or with rusting.

When something goes bump in the night, it is one of the Glocks I reach for (without a second thought).

I kid, I kid. I owned (past tense) a Glock 27 as my first Glock. Like everyone, I'd heard the stories of their epic reliability. Alas, not so. Mine wouldn't fire more than a few rounds before it jammed. Turned out that the prior owner had attempted to incorrectly reassemble it, and the trigger bar was bent. New trigger bar was put in, but I sold it-never trusted it for carry.

I had a G 19, and it was very reliable, but I didn't care for the way the Gen 3 finger grooves hit my hand, so I traded it for an XD9sc (see my thread about doing a trigger job on that one).

Now all that's left is the G17, and it's here to stay. Reliable, the original platform that Gaston Glock designed, and what else? Oh yeah, reliable. I'm not nearly as accurate with it as with my 1911s, but I can hit a head size target across the room. Seventeen times.

I think it'd survive it! I saw this video where ths guy did a GRUESOME torture test on one! And he did things where i wouldn't fire the gun after doing..

Im not either, im leaning towards a m&p compact honestly. Generally the more something is hyped the less interested i am. I dont get the xd hype either, they never sold hardly any until they were rebadged and marketed by springfield armory. Now i would be interested in checking out a cz, but never seen one in person around here.

After TSHTF, the only things left will be Cher, cockroaches, AK's, and Glocks.
