Had the same dilemma, I've had a P89DC since the early 90s, I wanted a better trigger and easier concealed carry. I looked at the Glock 19, didn't like the grip angle. I went with the Sig 320 in the compact grip frame. Great size, great trigger, stricker fired, just what I wanted.

Going forward, my Ruger purchases will be revolvers and rimfire Mark/10-22. For bolt action, semi auto rifles and 9mm pistols there are better manufacturers to choose from.

Glocks

I've had several Glock over the years, but now am down to one, a G35 with a 9mm conversion barrel. Very reliable pistols, and parts, when needed, are dirt cheap. The grips could use a reduction job for my hands, but I've never gotten around to it.

I'm issued a Glock and own plenty of Glocks (blue label pricing makes it too easy) and have been thinking of getting another Glock 19 since I always tell people at the bare minimum have a Glock 19. My mom has my gen2 and my exwife has my gen4. I don't plan on getting them back anytime soon so I was planning on getting another 19 with threaded barrel but...CZ also has LE pricing so I preordered the new CZ P10C suppressor ready version.


Never had a CZ but will give them a shot.
My 9mm guns are currenly Berettas, Glocks, HKs, S&W and SIG so I will branch out.

My first 5 guns were Rugers (new LCP II, new SR22, used LC9, used LCR, and used Mark II). Each time I would go looking with the intention of trying out a new brand the low cost and high quality of Ruger would win me over.

I rented a Glock 22 at the range just to see what a 40 cal / Glock felt like. The recoil was less than I anticipated and I had decent accuracy with it. Last week I traded in the SR22 and paid the difference for a new G22. Its is more of a range gun for me as I already have some pocket sized Rugers for CC but I would getting one for sure.

Have you shot Glocks? I certainly wouldn't buy a Glock just for the sake of owning a Glock, anymore than I would a pistol from any other maker.

Certainly if Glocks work for you, they have quite a bit of juice, including simplicity of design, reliability, cheap magazines, and great aftermarket support. The G19 is an excellent size for concealed carry and has a sleeker profile than most of its competitors in the same size category.

Having said that, I dislike Glocks and will probably never own one, and I certainly won't feel "incomplete" for the lack of a Glock. The block-like grips I find uncomfortable, and the finger grooves on the G19 Gen3s and Gen4s are too small to fit my fingers. Glocks do not point naturally for me, partly due to the grip angle, but mostly due to the exaggerated palm swell ("Glock hump") low down on the back strap which pushes the whole bore axis upward. The stock sights that come with Glocks are cheap plastic and totally inappropriate for a pistol in the price range that Glocks go for. The trigger action is uninspiring. And personally, I do find them ugly, although that would not stop my from buying one.

Polymer-frame, striker-fired pistols do have some merits. But there are many Glock alternatives these days. I own 2 SIG P320s but I would also choose an HK VP9, Walther PPQ, Walther P99, Steyr M9 A1, or even an FN FNS 9 before I would a Glock.

Thats sounds really similiar, I bought my glock before the sr series rugers came out. Well when the sr series came out, I felt it was a little too similiar to the glock, same with the m&p and xd. So I never warmed up to the sr, despite being a ruger die hard. I have fired the sr, its accurate, and reliable, but for a striker fired pistol, I perfer the glock, I feel it is the benchmark for commercial striker fired pistols. With that said I am a hammer guy on my pistols.

My 1st Glock

I swore for years that I would never own a Glock. I guess I'm old school at 70yrs and I only owned metal framed Guns. My Son carried a Glock 26 for several years, but had to switch to a single stack Glock for work. One day my Local FFL Dealer calls and said to come and get the G26 which my Boy had sent him for transfer, without telling me in advance. After shooting it, I learned to Love the G26, I retired my Kahr K9 and have been carrying the G26 for about a year now. It is as concealable as the K9 and hold 11rds of 9mm compared to the Kahr's 8rd capacity.

Didn't really care for the feel of the Glocks. I liked the feel of the M&P right out of the box when they first came out. Test fired different brands on the range and walked away with a new M&P and never looked back.

I had never bought a Glock until the gen4 series came out. I got a G19 and have really liked it. Something about the slightly smaller grip combined with the shorter length of the G19 fit my hand. I've thought about someday adding another mode G19 (FDE? MOS?) but am waiting until at least after the Shot Show to see if anything new is offered.

Had an M&P 40 once but never got accustomed to the hinged trigger; nor the style of the manual safety.

My daughter really likes her Bersa UC Pro 9 as she prefers hammer guns.

love our G19 Gen4, neither of my boys (13 and 18) like the handguns... but it still gets the most rounds downrange on any trip out.

i'd say i have average size hands and it just fits so comfortably, easy to get on and return to point for me.

glad i bought it. also have a G26 Gen3 - only thing wrong is the length of the grip...

I bought this for Christmas and love it so far. Just shot one box of 50 through it, ran perfect.

My first 9mm was a Glock 17. I really liked it but didn't really have a comparison. A couple of years later, I got an SR9c. For me, the grip on the Ruger is a perfect fit. I shoot the SR9c much better than the full-sized 17. Now that I have additional 9s, I really don't like the boxy Glock grip. I haven't fired a Glock single stack or even a gen 4 for that matter so I can't speak to those but the traditional Glock grip is not a good fit for me.
