    I am currently down to just one Glock. An old 17 Police Trade-In that I bought about 6 years ago. I had several others but had to sell them to pay bills. Hopefully that's all behind me now.

    But anyhoo - the post topic is why I like Glocks. I'll just list the reasons:

    Durable
    Accurate
    Reasonable Price
    Versatility
    Parts and aftermarket mods availability
    Holster availablility

    The versatility aspect is one of the biggest reasons that I like em. Take the G20 (or in my case, the G20 SF) - you can get all kinds of drop-in barrels for these. I had one that was 6" long for hunting. I had a stock length one for shooting cast boolits (bullets for the uninitiated). I had one to allow me to shoot 40 S&W. And there are other conversion barrels for .357 Sig. So that one pistol could handle three different calibers - or more.

    The Glock is kinda like the AR-15 of pistols. Which is why I still have one.

    Every time I think I wanna buy a Glock, I'm shooting one of my wife's, and then the feeling passes.

    I've got a Block as well. After two three years of carrying it daily, I can't wait to get rid of it.

    I've got five GLOCKSĀ® but none of them really excite me. They do what they do extremely well and with no fuss. I can respect that, but there's many other pistols that I enjoy much more.
