    Definitely the reliability, my wife can handle the 19 no problem and I got the 23 to carry while on the road. Also the easy trigger safety helps in a stressful situation and once you get the feel of the trigger and it is engrained in your memory there's very little room for error. With almost 30 years of good reputable service you can't go wrong with a Glock!

    I was electrocuted and burned my hand up pretty good. The glock grip felt right

    How reliable and durable they are even after taking a beating and also all the customizations you can do to them.

    It comes apart in to exactly 4 pieces. I can count that high just about all the time.
    And if it's good enough for The good guys it's good enough for me

    Reputation of demonstrated reliability and accuracy.

    Reputation of demonstrated ease of function, maintenance, and a plethora of aftermarket support.

    Price. Brand New In Box G26 Gen3 $275. Other than factory test fire, never been fired before.

    Price. Gently used (less than 500 rounds) Like New In Box G30 Gen3 $400. Purchased from a friend who sorely needed the money.

    Cheers! :D
     
  9. Can you buy me 5 of the G26. I've never seen any new Glock under 300 or even 400!!!

    It also helps that it's a scary looking gun, some say it's ugly but I think there would be nothing more intimidating than having a big black gun that's blocky and almost all barrel pointed in the bad guys direction....IMHO

    Guy at the LGS where a bought it (a big-box sports outfitters) had apparently marked the price tag wrong, which is what caught my attention.

    I was thinking, "OK, whats wrong with this thing?"...had the counter guy take it out of the display case, asked him what was wrong with it (nothing, brand new, he said), what does it come with (everything, he said, lock, case, 3 mags, manual, brush)...so after fondling it for a minute or two, settling in my mind (there's gotta be a catch, why is it so cheap?!), decided to buy it. Then the guy looks at the tag, says the price was marked wrong. Fortunately for me, we have a price tag law in NV. So now I have a G26! :D

    Recommendation from a friend who knows a lot more about firearms than me.
     
  20. Respectfully, someone with *any* firearm pointed at them might find that particular firearm just a little bit intimidating and scary.
