OK, brothers and sisters, I was not kidding. I like and RESPECT Dr. Tramp! He makes well reasoned posts. He has served our country. He knows a good bit about various firearms. He is passing along a love of SAFE, RESPONSIBLE firearm ownership to many people, including his grandson.I've shot Glocks, factory, customized, and all 9mm. Overall they worked just fine though I consider them ammo picky and I don't care for the contour of the grip; that little hump on the back makes my wrist turn downward which I have to remind myself to correct for.
All in all they're nice pistols with all kinds of custom and add on goodies available but they don't fit me natural and I don't find them interesting enough to buy.
1911 style grips, like my S&W 4566 has, and slanted Luger style grips, like my High-Standard pistols have, are much more comfortable and natural feeling in my hand when shooting pistols.
My revolvers and single shot pistol all have revolver style curve grips but shooting revolvers SA or DA is altogether different. They're actually my preferred type of handgun.
Love the movies where people are using revolvers with silencers.
Ride Safe. Dr.Tramp.............
Yet, he thinks Glocks are ammo picky! On my list of things Glocks are NOT, that would be the top of my list.
A man like Dr. Tramp deserves to have a good Glock!
Given his hump and grip angle comment, I think a 26 would best eliminate those issues--which are real issues for some people.
Side note: Gaston did not come up with a potentially awkward grip angle just to NOT sell guns! Humans have some genetic diversity--though not as much as many people think. All humans descending from a single couple named Adam and Eve is scientifically possible. Ask an honest genetics expert. I would like to see a scientific study of humans who prefer the 2 main grip angles. I bet there is good genetic science underlying which grip angle people prefer. Sadly that study will probably never be funded.
I don't have a lot of cash, but I will give $25 to a "Buy a Glock 26 for Good Ole Dr. Tramp Fund."
Anyone else want to commit to adding a Glock to our friend's collection?
Mods, I reviewed the rules last night and do not think this post breaks rules. If it does, please delete the post and forgive me. Thanks.
