at the end of the day, the thing i appreciate the most, is the ease of cleaning. after the end of long trip to the range, the big, open, square shape of the glock slide is soooooo much easier to thoroughly clean than most of the other pistols i have experience with.

So many good points on here but how about all the different sight options. It seems as if Glock has more sight options than any other gun except maybe the 1911.

XS sights (Big or standard)
the Warren Tactical series (over 8 sets)
the Henie Slant Pro (over 5 sets)
the AmeriGlo collection (over 15 sets)
the Meprolights (about 7 combos)

the various fiber optics versions like Tru Glo
the Trijicons
the Sure Sight
the Advantage Tactical
PT Night Sights collection (over ten sets)

the factory box bar (steel, adj., plastic)
the dude that sells the glow in the dark stickers
the glow in the dark paint set
and there are probably more I forgot to mention

i used to feel that way until i shot one. i was one of those plastic wont last and 1911 is king types. i am not afraid to say i was wrong. the glocks i shot were very nice and never had issue. the 1911 has been up and down with ammo consistency. one type feeds consistently into my sti does not in my para, then the rounds i use to feed the para wont feed my kimber or sig 1911. so i spend extra or more like wasted money on springs, having a gunsmith polish the feed ramp, guide rods, and other crap and then breaking everything in again.

my glocks has eaten everything from reloads, wolfman, federally, chevy blazer, win-chucker, pointy spear and some company that start with an r

Glad you came over to the new generation of pistols and are not stuck in the 1911 mentality of your not allowed to buy any other gun, were better than you stuck up personality, or I can carry 7, 8, 10 rounds vs the 17, 33 in 9mm, 15, 22 in 40 SW and yes we can carry 13, 25 with Scherer mag and 30 with Magpul mag of 45 ACP so eat that 1911 maniacs.

I enjoy the fact that it goes bang everytime i pull the trigger. The brass may wack me in the forehead a time or two but it's nice that it ejects and just flat out works. Even though I clean mine everytime after use, I don't have to force myself to either. I know I can stake mine and my families life on it.

1.) Absolute reliability. "All skill is in vain when an angel blows the powder from the flintlock of your musket." While a Glock is not completely immune to crap ammo and poor maintenance, I feel it is more immune than all other semi-autos.

2.) Simplicity, both in design and operation, both of which add to my first point. Point and click, no safeties, very few moving parts, etc.

I'm grateful that my last one didn't take my fingers off when it came apart at the pistol range.

It's comfortable to shoot, easy to work on, and you can change anything about it through the aftermarket. If eugene stoner took the idea of the AK's reliability and made a pistol, it would be the glock. It's being copied as much as the AR and 1911 now, because of the same reasons - they work.

QFT! This is it in a nutshell.

Easy to load, easy to pronounce (1 syllable) I can change my trigger connector, and extractor and don't need a freaking gunsmith. I can clean it in 10 -15 minutes or do full break-down and do it in 1 - 2 hours. I can break it down in so manny parts it would be rendered harmless to the average Joe put all the parts in a plastic bag and put it back together 6 months later.

Well obviousley when i started looking for a pistol there was no question they were reliable and time proven but what i really like is how easy parts are to find and how easily customizable they are.

Reliablity, Cost, Effectiveness, Ruggedness, The ability of the smaller pistols to take their counterparts magazines is also a plus..
Glock Pistols just plain work if not tinkered around with..
How many other pistols can have their trigger pull lightened by just sliding a 3.5/4.5 connector in?? There are a few but their all copies of Glocks & don't count..
I've had Glocks for over 20 years now & they are the pinnacle in which all others are measured against.

The absolute simplicity of the design. So easy to take apart, clean, replace parts etc... One of the most accurate, if not the most accurate guns that I have ever shot, hands down, but yet the most simple gun to take down and clean... That really amazes me!

Oh yea, and I can carry it all day in southern summer heat, and almost forget that I have it on my hip at times, the lightness of the gun also amazes!

Whenever I carry my SIG OWB, I freak out about the rivet on my jeans scratching the slide.

Whenever I carry my M92 IWB, I fret about the weight and the hammer digging into my side. God forbid something nick it in the console of my car!

The Glock...never give it a second thought, if it gets nicked up or scratched...well, it won't because it's coated in some sort of granite like diamond-proof force field. If it does get beat up....eh, whatever. It's plastic. I'll get a new one. They're only like $450.

Not that I am abusive to it, it's just tough as nails, not particularly pretty, and doesn't ever really do anything wrong. It's like a stripped out 3/4 ton 4x4. Doesn't try to impress or be anything it's not. Just an honest, trustworthy tool that starts every time, and does it's job without protest.

A Glock is not distracting

The mark of a master craftsman is one who concentrates all his attention on a vision of the end result, not wasting time or thought on the tools he owns and uses. A master has evolved past the stage of acquiring, testing, maintaining and discarding unhelpful tools.

The thing I like most about a Glock is, in form and function, it is not distracting. More than other pistols, a Glock allows a novice to move past the hardware and focus his mind on skills, trust he will improve, and become a master shooter faster if he wills it.
