You can't bust em!!! some guns cost twice as much but won't do half the work of a GLOCK!

Dependability, simplicity, versatility, functionality and value.
It even feels good in my hand. May not be the prettiest handgun I ever owned but it does look better than my Hi Point C9, well almost!

Really, what does it for me is the trigger- I cannot find a trigger that I enjoy more (outside of 1911s, of course).

Other than that they are dirt cheap and REPLACEABLE. I have a few guns that I will probably never sell but if my glocks were to be stolen or otherwise taken from me, I wouldn't shed a tear - I'd simply head to the nearest gun store and buy another that, after a new pair of nights sights, would be just as good as the one it was replacing.

I'm not at a point in my life where I want to start "collecting" firearms right now, though I am sure maybe some day I will... for now, I want guns that will work and work well with a minimal amount of fuss. I can't think of a gun that better fits that definition than Glocks.

simplicity. glock doesn't bother with the bells and whistles. it's the perfect utilitarian gun.

Reliability. If it doesn't go BANG every time I pull the trigger I couldn't trust it to protect me or my family. Also, after carrying all-steel M1911s for many years I've become partial to Glock's lighter weight.

My favorite thing is a 'package deal' of things with Glocks.

Of the things that are important to me, Glocks usually exhibit them more than any other mass produced pistol. If and when I believe some other mass produced pistol has proven itself to my ideals, I will be a fan of it, too.

Reliability, trigger, accuracy. perceived recoil, simplicity of design, corrosion resistance, and other things all come into play. I really do believe that numerous pistol manufacturers have attempted to copy some of the features to sell their pistols, but they were all falling pretty short until the Generation 4 9mm's came along, lol.

I don't purchase gen4's but my reason i choose Glock is because its a firearm i can trust. Right out of the box.

There's many other reasons, but that is one of my main reasons.

I pick up serious trim with mt GT hat on... the ladies can't resist. That's why!

That, and I want all the nukes to make it out of the silo when its time for war. Gotta go with reliability.

It's dead reliable, easy to maintain, easy to learn the manual of arms, replacement parts are cheap and it's just plain scary looking! When the GLOCK comes out nobody's makin jokes!
I love a good caliber flame thread!

What everyone else said and my G19 can balance on it's butt and slide plate, or on the front of the dustcover and bottom of the frontstrap.
I'm working on teaching it to roll over.
The men and women who can save civilization are right here on this gun board! Or, was it that other gun board I was just on?

What is your favorite thing about Glocks?
if someone breaks into my house and steals my glocks and nothing else, i'm not gonna be upset.

A) Out of the box reliability.

B) Durability

Low maintenance and the tolerance for abuse. I ran my G23 over 5k rounds without cleaning or a drop of lube and the darn thing just kept running. Zero malfs, ever. I finally cleaned it and lubed it just because I felt bad. A G36 and G27 later? Same opinion. The things just run.
