Yep, the homely looking one that always work baggy clothes who had a killer bod hiding under the baggy dress and was super fun to play with after you took her out. BUT as soon as the Hot looking girl (1911) came along it was El Dumpo for the Glock chick.

Dressing up is very important.

If by carbine, you mean pistol, then yes. It's still no Luger.

It looks like a Luger.... But it's not.


It's a classic design for sure, but it just doesn't do anything for me, personally.

Now the P22 isn't pretty but it's not supposed to be either.

Aesthetically I like guns that either have a western look like the marlins and shotguns or a more tactical look like the walther. The Luger look ugly (I guess) but it doesn't hold my attention at all.

The Bastard Child

Glocks are either loved or hated.
"They're butt ugly!"
"Who cares what they look like? They're perfect ... they never jam and last forever."
"Bullshit! My (fill in blank) wouldn't feed anything!"
"You're limp-wristing it, you pansy."
"Well, my 1911/Hi-Power/P9/Walther/S&W/HK/Steyr/whatever never has jammed."
"Yeah, well your 1911 costs three times as much as my Glock ..."
And so forth.

I hopped on the Glock bandwagon early, after reading a review in Soldier of Fortune, of all places.
We're used to them now, of course, but if you weren't around prior to the introduction of the Glock G17, you may not realize how revolutionary the Glock was at the time. Polymer frames had been used before but never to this extent. Autos usually were festooned with every manner of safety levers and buttons ... the Glock's safety was on the damned trigger (and two more internally).
I bought an early G17 since I've always been a "form follows function" guy and everything I'd read about the "plastic pistol" and its ability to function was glowing.
I wasn't disappointed and have bought several since in various calibers and sizes.
I have to say if I had to pick one, I'd take this one ... the G36.



It's compact.
It's lightweight.
Recoil is very manageable.
It's got a 6+1 capacity in .45ACP.
It happens to be my favorite Glock, aside from maybe the G19.

But it's the Bastard Child of the Glock lineup.
Some claim it jams more often than it functions. That it kicks too hard. That it doesn't extract cartridges, that it's really ammo-sensitive, that it's essentially a P.O.S.
Mine works. All the time. Every time. With anything fed through it.
So I guess my bastard child is gonna stick around awhile longer.

The 1911s are better if you know what you are doing...

Well, I finally broke down and bought a sig 9mm last year, and have accepted the semi auto, so now I'm hunting for something in .45.


As the king of riderland, would you please put together an official adv group shooting get together so we can all swap and try some of these different guns?

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton

Has there been any sort of ADV weekly shooting league? Some groups have these sorts of thing, mail in matches.

I know rimfire central used to have and probably still has a mail in match, 10 shots, off hand 10 meters. Maybe a .22 LR handgun 10 meter match?
