    too small in the grip IMHO. The 26 needs a grip extension. But, it is a superb piece of Tupperware, none the less...

    Glock produces a decent product as do others in the plastic frame market. There are quite a few hanguns equal to or some believe superior to this Austrian pistol. A few examples would include designs from H&K, S&W, Springfield XD, FNC, Kahr, and others. I, on the other hand, have been carrying steel framed guns for over three decades, and have always been comfortable with my selection. To each his own - there simply is not just one firearm superior to all others.

    I was never a big fan of Glocks. I find their big guns too small and their small guns too big (G26 is hard to pocket). I have always considered them the "VW beatle" of handguns - inexpensive, reliable, well engineered for their price point, but thoroughly pedestrian. There is nothing exciting or even interesting to me about them - no WOW factor, like a good 1911.
    That said, I took it as a challenge when the G34 was described by Glock as a "Competition" pistol. Its not.
    It is, however, a great platform on which to build a really good competition pistol. So I got to work and here is the result:

    Let me know if you are interested in the specs of the G34MR.

    I was shopping for guns recently and looked at several Sig Pistols. While i like all i handled they are sure proud of them. I believe everyone i held had just under a Grand on it. I'm sure it falls into the "Get what you pay for" category. Just say'n................

    Hard to beat the Glock for defensive use. Opinions and buying patterns world wide show the Glock is an overwhelming favorite. The G19 is a SUPERB defensive arm. I prefer the G23 for discrete carry, but to each his own.

    Show your friends your ego-satisfying custom Bling pistol, show your enemies your GLOCK.

    Without character or personality, the Glock simply works. However, like all other firearms, it has no brain, so you must use yours when handling it.

    amen Shooting Coach! The day of the over-hyped 1911 paperweight is long gone. Cocked and Locked is a bit of a joke! BTW, most of the spec. ops. guys are now carrying the 40 cal Glock, their choice. Betetta M9's appear to be on their way out. The Sig 226 is also a favorite of the Seals.

    How do I know, my SIL is a senior Navy EOD and I've had the pleasure of meeting and shooting with his buddies out of Little Creek...

    Everything you've said here speaks volumes about your experience with combat firearms; BTW, most firearms are carried 'cocked and locked', some just don't have hammers exposed. You do understand that the 1911 was designed as a single-action pistol which offers many advantages over DA and DAO pistols? Oh, and your statement about the M9 being on the way out -- not so. The gov't just purchased 250,000 more for the armed services. They also purchased more 1911's from Kimber and H&K Socoms for Special Forces -- they bought no Glocks. I teach tactical pistol to several LEO organizations, and some carry Glocks; I have no problem with their choice. But by no means is the Glock the end-all for all applications; they are just another low powered last resort weapon that are called handguns....good luck

    Nice looking paper weight. That's the great thing about America, you can love your Glock, and I can sneer at the very plastic it's made from. It'll be in the re-cycle can long before my American made, all metal S&W Mod. 19. And yet we can still shoot side by side and like each other. But again my Mod.19 will out shoot your Glock. I will have to re-load before you, but I can shoot .38's or .357's thru the same gun. And don't get your Glock too close to the campfire, It'll melt. Good Shooting, keep your Glock clean, F/S.
