Is it time for a Glock?

This is a discussion on Is it time for a Glock? within the Pistols & Revolvers forums, part of the Pistol & Revolver Forum category; In my experience and humble opinion, any CZ75 series pistol makes a much better "range toy" than a glock. YMMV...

I was an all Ruger guy until recently. I found the Ruger's to be good looking, built like a tank, and priced right. But, I also found that when shopping for various accessories, Ruger options were very limited but Glock options were always available. So, I bought my first Glock, a 19. No regrets

To respond to some of the posts, I already have some polymer framed pistols (9E, RAP 45) and a CZ75 clone, so I'm covered there.

Thanks for all the comments so far!

NEVER! A CZ pick one, or a 9mm 1911

Im with Buck on the CZ 75 series. .

I like hammer fired metal pistols.

We have (4) CZ 75 series 9mm's now, looking for #5. .
The 75 d PCR is my EDC. Love it. 1500 + rounds , no failures.

We just ran 400 rounds through a recently purchased P01 this past week.
Great pistol as well. Thats the upgrade new version for the PCR.

Wifes EDC is a 2075d Rami. Buck actually recommended that one, and what a perfect fit and nice conceal carry & shooter.. She loves it. ( Thanks again Buck )
My favorite shooter is my 75BD with TruGlo TFX sights and a #13 mainspring.

We have had ZERO failures on any of the 4.

Our son has the 75 BD 9mm with a Kadet 22 lr kit. If you like shooting 22 lr, its awesome.

With CZ hammer forged barrels, accuracy is incredible.
Their rifles are amazing. We have 2 of those also.

Maybe everyone should own a Glock, I wont knock em, dont own one, but they have a good reputation. I just dont like polymere striker fired.

but if thats the case, everyone should own a CZ 75 series as well. Awesome quality built firearms.

Good luck.

And they are almost always less expensive.

So with the bases pretty much covered, anything I buy at this point is really just another range toy. Between a non-Ruger rifle I'm about to sell and some Christmas cash/gift cards, I'm ready to add to the collection.

I'm mostly interested in adding another 9mm pistol at this point. I could get a RAP in that caliber (I already have one in 45ACP) or I could get another 9E and get it custom colored (I feel like a FDE colored handgun would be cool). Alternatively, though, I'm thinking its time to try another major manufacturer. I've looked at the Glock 17 and 19 off and on for a few years but never bitten.

Alternatively I could look at Sig P320 or S&W M&P. Or maybe there is something else I should be considering.

Just wondering what other Ruger fans think about the non-Ruger popular options.
If you want a range gun and a glock I really like the G34, good trigger , simple controls, real accurate.

In that same realm, look at a S&W M&P Pro 9. better trigger, easier to break down for cleaning.

just my 2 cents

Give a Springfield Armory XD Mod 2 a try. I have yet to meet a Glock fan that didn't like the feel of a XD more than their Glock.

PS - not trying to rile up or bash Glock owners just stating the facts as I've observed them

Semi autos are just a passing fad.
Get a good revolver.

I'll just stay quiet on this ...

Well maybe a few short comments, go with a Sig if you feel the need to branch out again. I know glocks are supposed to be good but I could never bring myself to get one. My glock friends look down their noses at my Ruger tanks ... P series!

Its also interesting that my auto correct keeps changing glock to block ... nuff said

I've owned 3 Glock 19's, a 30SF, a 23, a 27 and a 29. I currently own none of them. I actually like the look and all of them were dead nuts reliable but just never could get used to the feel of them in my hand or on my hip.

If I were in the market for another 9mm I'd look at the VP9. Had a chance to shoot one and wow, what a nice gun. CZ75d or PCR is a great choice. Owned the PCR and loved it, it just wasn't enough different from my 75b to keep both so I chose the bigger one. I'd really like to check out the new CZ P-10C. The ergonomics of the CZ line is legendary and I find that they fit my hand better than anything I've ever picked up.

Good luck in your search. Oh, and if you really want a Glock, buy, borrow or rent one and see for yourself if its for you or not...
