    I don't ever see myself owning a Glock or a Taurus. I keep saying I'm not a hater but I must be. The angle on the Glock is enough for me as I don't own any Ruger Mark anything with the Luger grip angle. I do own a 22/45 however. Yes because of the grip angle being the same as my 1911. Since I got blowed up by my 40 Shield the unsupported chamber or lack of a fully supported chamber is something I now look for and avoid.

    Some random thoughts: I don't know how the trigger got broken but my mind immediately goes to using it in a self defense situation pulling the trigger and like in some comic book or cartoon the trigger snaps and falls to the ground. I don't suppose there was a stick with a flag that said "boom" that came out of the barrel?

    We both like guns, don't care for Glocks and like women! What are the odds?

    Buy a replacement trigger or have a gunsmith buy one and install it for you. He may discover "something" else inside is not up to snuff in the process.

    Until then, you state it still shoots. Grip the trigger up "high".

    glock was met with a tremendous amount of bias when first introduced and adopted by some agencies......plastic frames, while not new was rarely encountered back then and that raised eyebrows along with ridicule of the trigger and the odd grip angle......amongst other things. Also the first glock introduced was the 9mm model 17 which drew further heat in the capacity vs caliber wars at the time.

    The Glock rose into the top ranks of officer and dept issue very quickly on its own merits and especially.....very especially......the discount pricing offered to agencies. American gun makers had to play catch-up. Glock was really very masterful at promoting their product to LEO agencies and in their advertising in general. .

    Also, Glock developed an almost cult-like fan base following...and the louder and more vocal this core of glockaholics proclaimed the superiority of the Glock, the less us old bias prejudiced blue steel loving dinosaurs listened and ranted against the brand..

    today, i accept the glock as a well built pistol and a viable weapon system........that is a lot of crow for me to eat considering i was one of those that made fun of the first officer in the area with a model 17 and how we gave him bloody hell about the plastic wondernine that would warp in the sun and asking if made by Mattel was stamped into the frame.

    the glock is simply not for me......i still dislike the trigger system, still dislike the grip angle, and still actually in all honestly do not trust myself with a glock unless i dedicated myself to the system exclusively for a while to become very acquainted with it.....so i will cling to my revolvers and my sigs..........

    Get a major name brand (And, yes,Virginia, there IS a difference between "recoginized", and "major" name brands.)One made of STEEL, with an external safety.

    Save money on beer, or groceries,or bundling services, or some sort of shit. STOP trying so hard to save money on guns. Unless you want to wind up with

    I have one Glock. I carry it when there is going to be dust, mud or a combination of the two. I've never had occasion to shoot anything with it more deadly than a rattlesnake. I carry it with an empty chamber. Although the grip angle is wrong for me as well, find that when I take my time and aim, I shoot very well with it. That confidence factor is worth a lot. In those conditions my other "go-to" is the Ruger Blackhawk 357. Another aspect of the Glock is that I am not really concerned if it gets beat up on Truck doors, tractor seats, or brush. I suppose I should take it out and shoot it just to make sure it still pops. It goes on a lot of excursions and I haven't actually fired it is over two years. Shows you what a dangerous life I lead.
