Is it time for a Glock?

Over the last few years I've been able to put together a pretty well rounded gun collection that is mostly made up of Rugers. While I've considered other brands along the way, I've pretty much always chosen the Ruger offering in each class of gun I've been interested in because I've always had such good luck with them. 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.

I think so. My handguns are mostly revolvers, but I enjoy the semi-autos and Glock at that. Get one. Try it out. They're reliable!

Any of those three would be a good choice. I personally like the glock or SIG choice first with the S&W I 3rd.

I was a glock hold out for a long time, bought a 19 for a sweet deal, and totally love it. Switched the sights to the henie straight 8 tritiums and its a great accurate pistol. I added the streamlight TLR 1 and it serves duty as my night stand gun. Everyone knows I am hardcore ruger, but I do like the glock, just took me years to come around. Which led me to buy the 42 as a second ccw pistol. Its also a fun little gun and reliable.

Everyone should have a Glock, amd of your choices I would recommend the 19. Having said that, the M&P 9s are pretty sweet, too, and I actually prefer them over my Glock.

Smith is coming out with a Gen 2 model in the M&P line, so if that's the way you go, I'd wait for the new one.

I enjoy buying Rugers as much as anyone. But, nothing wrong with a Glock or a Sig. My wife wanted a Glock 19 because she just didnt like my SR9c. After a few range sessions with her Glock I traded my SR9c for my own Glock 19. No regrets at all.

I have to agree with all the posts, if you don't have one I think it is a good purchase.

You might also want to "test drive" an HK USP or P30 series firearm.

Have three Glocks, they are the least carried firearms in our safe. But some people love them. Just never could warm up to the 2X4 grip, and they are not as accurate as my revolvers, or 1911.

Don't overlook Walthers. Very similar to Glocks, but a bit more refined in my opinion. A P99 is a very nice handgun.
I would also consider a CZ75.
Nothing wrong with Glocks either, but try to hold or shoot a few more brands before buying.

I guess it depends on one's view of "well rounded collection", to me a collection without Glock (plastic representative) isn't really complete.

I don't buy guns for the goal of collecting, but I acknowledge certain models and/or specific brands are must haves because of their reputation.

I started with a G30. Traded it towards something that I may or may not still have. I eventually missed having a Glock, and got a G17.... Repeat all that, and I now have a G26.
They've all been dead on reliable... Number one importance in a SDW, especially in a pistol. I usually lean more towards a revolver.
Even though I'm a steel and wood kind of gun person, I don't agree with the general opinion that Glocks are ugly. I think Glocks are the best looking plastic guns out there. Pure, functional beauty. Most of the others look like, well... a Glock that has grooves and lines cut into it to try and make it look cool.
Just MHO.
These days, I'm alternating between the 26 an a S&W J-frame as my pocket-carried CCW.

No problem with the Glock from me. Had a few. Will probably have another one sooner or later. My recommendation at that price point would be a Sig P2022 9mm. It is NOT an 'entry level' Sig. I have one and it's every bit as reliable and accurate as all my other P series Sigs. IMO it's one of THE best values in handguns. Highly recommend. Don't overlook the good old Beretta 92 either. Tough to argue against a CZ75 but I don't have any experience with one.
