I guess I have really sunk my teeth into Glock...lol

I used to be anti Glock....I do not know why, but at one time I did not care for striker pistols.

I do like 40 S&W so I decided to purchase a Glock 27 and once I had my head straight I must like it.

I can carry it in a pocket even though it is a tad thick. It also fits a kydex paddle holster that fits 4 other pistols.

And it shoots better than me.

I then purchased a 357 Sig barrel and magazines for that caliber. Got no problems with it except when I use the 40 mag with the 357 Sig. And I have been dumb enough to shoot 357 Sig out of a 40 barrel a couple of times...no harm.

Today I purchased a 9mm barrel and two 9 round mags and a 15 round mag.

Now the pistol will shoot three calibers when I get the 9mm stuff.

I have a Shield 40 with a 9mm barrel and I also have two FN 40s (FNS and FNX) with a Sig 357 barrel that will work in either.

I also like 357 Sig for a little longer shooting.

Should be here within a week and I will get confused with which barrel/mags to use. Not necessarily a big fan of 9mm (and I do not have a problem with it), but I have the options with one pistol now and I can practice a little cheaper.

I may be done with purchasing any more handguns at my age....although there is this......no, no, nomore.

Now I need to learn how to shoot them all better.

I guess I am a glock fan of sorts.

Be careful shooting. Make sure the ammo and barrel match.

Glocks are utilitarian but very functional. I have other pistols that I enjoy more both for shooting and for aesthetics, but a Glock 26 is my most common carry pistol. I am equally puzzled by the people who hate them and those who think they are the only pistol worth considering. There are lots of good pistols being made these days, and Glock is certainly among them if their features suit.

Of my last 3 gun purchases, 2 have been Glocks. They are dead nuts simple & reliable. I call 'em the 10/22's of the pistol world. They're like Legos.

I use colored base plates on my mags to keep me straight.
