What is your favorite thing about Glocks?

I got into a debate about what I liked best about Glocks with friends. I had the most different answers and said their versatilty was the coolest before XD and S&W copied their idea of shooting a full size mag in a compact or subcompact gun and the C models. But all the other viewspoints went from the ease of customizing to the quality to even box bar sights.

What is your favorite thing about Glocks?

Simplicity! Plus I love one platform multiple calibers. Only one trigger to learn! Oh... and it being a Glock!

I can say it in one word: PERFECTION.
Resisting Glock is futile.

Nothing compares to this point. When the day comes I have to pull my weapon I want it to fire without issue.
