    Gen 5 Glocks....

    More like Gen 4.25 Glocks. I like Glock but come on you guys... no finger grooves, flat face trigger, and like rounding out the front of the slide and you claim it's a new generation? Come on... could at least let us buy the gun with metal night sites and shit.

    Admittedly raising it a half inch is still raising it....

    IF Glock were to release a pistol with no finger grooves, the rounded front end, Trijicon Night Sights, the flat face trigger, and front serrations THEN we have raised the bar

    If Glock keeps tinkering maybe they'll wind up producing a pistol I like. Here's to it.

    What!? A big reason why I got my G35 was so I could laugh at people with their tetris-piece inspired slides.

    I say, figure out a way to field strip without having to dry fire and call it a day. Everything else in incremental and I wouldn't want to see replacement and aftermarket parts becoming too generation specific.

    Send those letters/emails supporting the hearing protection act (turns suppressors into normal FFL-regulated items instead of the current bizarre NFA/tax stamp program).

    Glock has put themselves in the corner with their marketing gimic of different generations. Sure, Glock could make their pistols with all the features that most guns in their price range come with, but that would hamper what they can do in future generations. I'm sure the gen 6 Glock will have some new stippling, better sights, and a factory removable piece for attachment of a red dot sight, and the fanboys will go crazy over it. I'd be less forgiving if the prices weren't so high as well.

    IMO, there isn't much to improve, considering what it is and whom it's designed and marketed for.

    The older generations are tried and tested, I personally think that the newer generations, if anything, cater to those who don't yet own a Glock and want to roll the dice on any incremental changes they've made over the years. If you already own a Glock, there isn't much incentive to trade up.

    Looking at SHARE, does this mean we can buy ivory grips from out of state again?

    I guess if it was lawfully obtained/imported or already existed before the ban? Not sure.

    A couple years ago the sale across state lines of elephant ivory was banned, regardless of legal importation. I want me some 1911 grips and I'm bummed I missed the boat. Hoping this would reverse that.

    Hope so. Still kicking myself for not hopping on a set when the ban was announced.
