    Nah. But you're entitled to your opinion regardless of how terrible. ;)

    The CZ P10 has been getting great reviews and was designed to compete with the Glock 19.

    I suppose that varies greatly between models. I've shot some I love, but some others weren't so fun. It may have had nothing to do with the material and just the overall design.

    Yeah I can imagine different models would feel and perform differently. The one I shot was a police Glock 17 (9mm) and man it felt like a dream.
    Other handguns I've shot seem to have a lot of vibration, despite their greater weight. The materials and design of a Glock eat that up in my experience. Some people wonder why Glock is so popular now but good accuracy, high reliability, natural point-ability, and great feel (and reasonable price) is a combo thats difficult to top.

    9mm's are great proven effective weapons I have alot of friends that swear by them religiously! they're awesome and I can't say anything bad about them! It's all based of personal preference however, and for me personally? may very well be based on a notion and not reality.

    However the city Im in and the area in which I've been located for quite some time is rough as fuck. Lotta drug addicts hopped up on crack and I've seen these guys show some seriously abnormal resistance to pain/physical trauma and I'd prefer something that helps even out the equation. Higher cal the better for me. Used to carry a 357 with a 2 inch barrel. I've literally seen guys high on sherm walk thru bullets and keep going it's fucking insane lol.

    My personal preference on the matter stems a lot from a messy home defense situation I found myself in one night years ago, it just kind of hammered home the point that you want the quickest possible resolution to the problem. Like they say in racing "No replacement for displacement". But again thats just my take and what I find effective and useful for my personal scenario. I have a few 9mm's and I love em. I just prefer my 40 for carry... and an 870 for home (that one I'll swear by ;))

    Did they ever fix the guide rod issues with the Gen 4 9mm Glocks?

    Nah. Glocks have 45s that carry way more rounds. 30, 30S, 30SF, 21, 21SF,
    41. 9-13 rd mags, almost double a 1911. They also take less maintenance and are less fickle than a 1911.
    They're the smart man's 45acp. You can have your opinion though of course, even if it sucks.;)

    It's a very winnable argument for Team Glock.

    I have a gen4 glock 19 and 17. Gonna have to get a gen5 g19!

    No finger grooves, better finish, better barrels, ambi slide release, more robust spring funnel hole on the slide (sometimes they break), etc... improved in many ways IMO.

    Dang my gun moneys is depleted for this year.

    Maybe after tax returns. Already got a thousand rounds of 9mm to test it out!

    I love it, but I'm a big 1911 fan. They really feel like a 1911 on roids.
    They make a 10mm version now.

    I have a Gen 3 19 and the finger grooves have never been a problem for me. I'm also left handed and the slide release has never bothered me.
    It's too bad Glock didn't keep the crescent slide serrations of the RTF2 Gen 3s. I loved the "fish gill" 19.

    Does anyone else have a Glock with the Austrian proof mark on the slide? I'm not sure if they're more valuable or not but I have 2 Gen 3 19s with them that were bought in early 09. I've read they were imported over during the 08 panic.
