How many of you guys converted over to Glock from the traditional all steel of Sig, Beretta, Ruger, Smith, etc....?

What was your 1st Glock Model that changed you over from primarily using all metal pistols as your primary?

Tell us about when u stopped being a Nickle Plated Carrying Sissy!:tongueout:

Me, I never owned an all steel/metal gun until I inherited an old Colt Detective .38spcl from my Grad Dad.... I owned a Taurus 24/7 1st (which naturally broke in 3 mos.) picked up a G23 and have been a Glocker Since...:supergrin:

OK. The year was 2003. I had been taking a chiding from my friends for EDC'ing an expensive, Behlert Custom, 1911 pattern, steel-frame pistol; and I decided that what I needed to do was pick up one of these new, 'for cheap' plastic pistols. This way if I ever had to, 'buy a farm for somebody' I wouldn't lose any sleep over my Behlert 45 sitting inside some department's cold, damp, and drafty evidence locker.

Unfortunately old habits die hard; and, first thing I did with my brand new, 'for cheap' plastic pistol was to go out and buy a custom-fitted Bar-Sto Precision barrel. Afterwards, however, I discovered my new plastic pistol was, something less than, perfect; but, by that time, it was already to late. For some strange reason I liked the Glock more than I liked, 'WalterGA'; and I was hooked! ;)

I guess I'm getting old and my taste in firearms has aged with me. I have a few Glocks and like them for what they are. But if given an opportunity I'd trade my Glocks off in less than a heartbeat for more of these.

Sissy or not I still have a lot of faith in a .357 magnum revolver.

Important procedural point: ALL REVOLVERS are exempted from nickel plated sissy gun status! The NPSG status is applicable ONLY to autoloaders. Comprehension of this important consideration will save significant bandwidth consumption.

I have a nickel plated Glock too.
I'm so confused

Not so many years ago I did prefer Sig Sauer steel guns with alloy frames (P220/45, P239/357).

Lately I've been going polymer.
Today I carried my Heckler and Koch P2000 357 LEM
and a nickel plated Glock G27 40-9mm in a twin shoulder rig.

My Sig Sauer P220 45 is factory nickel plated.
But she's no sissy gun. And I still have her.

I'm formally a Sig and 1911 carrier. I like Glock, but not their width. Thanks to Glock for showing me how nice it is to carry a polymer weapon.
I now switch between an HK and a LW 1911 for carry.

Dropped a S&W 4006 40S&W

What a boat anchor. Heavy, DA/SA, first pull was with both feet to get the gun to go off seemed like 40lbs. Other than that it was reliable and shot ok single action.

I have a Colt .45 ACP 1911 dated 1918 that someone brought back from the war and had it nickel plated. It ain't no sissy gun.

Is nickle plated the same as nickel plated?:whistling:

I only carry Glocks because my department says so. I like them just fine but I have dropped anything because of them... Seems people who don't shoot much can shoot better scores with Glocks then they could with older Sig models. I personally carry Sigs. I can shoot them better than my Glocks. I have shot with many LEOs. Many can't shoot whether it is a Sig or Glock. They would be better off with a shiny sissy pistol...so as to blind the bad guy with a glare that hit a good guy with a miss. :shocked:

The NPSG Status Determination Committee, meeting in short-notice general plenipotentiary tribunal session, has determined that even though your 1911 is indeed nickel plated, its war record and extended longevity have earned it exemption from NPSG status.

And a richly deserved exemption it is!

Well I never had a "Nickel Plated" gun but my Nickel Steel Winchester Model 12 will out shoot any shotgun made today and it is older than your grandfather!
When I started shooting Lego didn't make guns so I didn't start with a Lego-Land plastic gun!
I bought my G20 because I was looking for a 10mm and it was locally available, has a good reputation for reliability & durability and can convert easily to .40 & .357 Sig for cheap target shooting.
The last hand gun I bought before the Glock was a S&W 39-2 and is far more accurate but I was looking for a better HD round and decided on the 10mm.

Never went nickel plated but Glock is my 1st "plastic" gun. My 1st gun was a Ruger GP-100, 4 inch blue steel. When I started carrying guns for a living and had a choice I went with Sigs. 226, 229 and finaly ended up with the 220. When I got hired on as an LEO 15 years ago I was issued a Glock 22. I became a quick convert. I still shoot the sig but my carry guns are all Glock 40's. The 22 for on duty, off duty have been the 23 and 27. I keep the 35 ready for when the shtf.

Semi retired the HI power back in 2003 for a glock 23 . Still carry the HP though from time to time . Also the other 9 glocks I have. Not all at the same time.

Hmmm... I've never owned a "sissy" pistol.

But I did trade a nickel plated RIA 9mm 1911 for an combat build Aerotek Glock 23. I've never regretted the decision.

I carry the G23, a Lonewolf G35, a Walther PPS40 or a Colt 1911, depending on the situation.

The only nickel pistol that I have ever owned was a S&W 4506. I dont think that even Tommy Lee would call that a sissy pistol.

My first pistol was a Beretta 92SB and my first Glock was a G22 bought in '06

Of my Nickel plated sissy pistols are either Colt or S&W and the newest one was produced in 1887 and none of them are used for carry. They sure are Fun to shoot though ! SJ 40

I didn't have much say in the matter. About 13 years ago, they handed me a Glock 35, new leather gear and six mags and said "This is your issue pistol, you will carry it."

About a year ago, we retired the 35's and were issued Glock 22's across the board.

I had to give up a Wilson Master Grade 130 I had built on a Colt Series 70. Not nickel plated (two tone) and the frame was hard chromed as was the norm for a very cool IPSC shooter back in the day.
