I went with Glock for multiple reasons.

Undeniable reliability
Accuracy
Safe Action Pistols - it's meant to fire but only if there is 1 in the head and the trigger is pulled.
Easy to break down.. Contrary to some sKeptics.
They look Good
Conversions.. "you can have 2 guns with just the change of a barrel".. but truly o extra parts required
Their Legacy

They are just simple quality pistols.

The Rogue Warrior himself, Richard Marcinko claims to carry a glock 27 in his books. The founder of SEAL Team 6 can never be wrong. Glock has proven reliability, hence all the copy cats out there...XD's, Sigmas? Glock is the BEST

Well I was always drawn to the alure of Glocks reliability but never liked the way they felt in my hand so I went with smaller griped "plastic" guns. But after several disapointments I was able to get my hands on the Gen4 I know own..So I guess what drawn me to Glock was reliability and the mother load of parts and acc. available for them.

I guess another way to look at it is, WHY ANYTHING ELSE?

The Rogue Warrior's opinion is that Glocks and H&K USP's are the best handguns out of the box, PERIOD, God I love his books.

Originally it was a duty gun and that was what all the other little boys were doing.

All the above .But the big one for me was holster option's. Black tie event or nude beach theres a holster made for my glock.
Jeez... I hope you're going open carry!!!!!

I like Glocks because of their reliability... It doesn't hurt than so many LEO's and military units stndardized on Glock pistols... that had to be for a reason... I like that they are not as heavy as some of the big all-steel pistols... Glocks seem more reasonably priced that some of the other pistols... lots of extra parts and mods for Glocks... and I think Glocks are very snazzy looking... very stylish for a pistol...

Before I bought my 19 I rented a few guns at the range and I liked the Glock. Their reputation as well as the price I got it for was what ultimately sealed the deal. Sucked having to wait 9 weeks for shipping but I am very happy with my decision. Over 500 rounds, at least 4 different kinds of ammo, no malfunctions whatsoever. And my CPL should be here any day now...

Well I wanted a .40 because I had never shot a .40 and during the ammo shortage .40 was really the only thing on store shelves. At first I wanted a Walther P99. Then I wanted an XD40, then I wanted a Walther P99 again. Then I figured that for the price of the Walther I might as well get an HK. So I wanted an HK USP Compact .40. Then I watched nutnfancy's video comparing the USPc .40 to the G23. This video didn't sway me one direction or the other, just made me consider Glock as an option.

So I researched Glock as much as I could and discovered that it's relatively easy to fully disassemble a Glock AND get replacement factory parts for it. That's what made my mind up and I couldn't be happier with my decision.

I have seen many of nutnfancy's YouTube videos... He is informative and entertaining... Hard to believe he is a Lt. Colonel in the military, though... Most of the colonels I have met are deadly serious... some of his videos are pretty good...

I got my Glock, because of what I have read about them, what friends said and each time I shoot it, I like it more than the last time.

What a great gun
