No two guns and no two shooters are the same. One brand that has been able to satisfy the needs of many different types of firearms owners is the Austrian gun manufacturer, Glock. Glock handguns are light, durable, reliable, and fairly inexpensive compared to other high-quality brands. What they lack in style and flare, they make up for in practicality.
Probably one of the best things about the Glock brand is their interchangeability of parts. There are a number of different slides, clip types, and sites that can be fitted to your preferences. This is especially helpful in the area of comfort vs concealability.
People who carry concealed in public need their guns to be compact and to stow comfortably to maintain the element of surprise. And those who do not conceal their weapon are probably much more concerned about how it feels in their hand while shooting. With the Glock brand, you can strike a balance between these two concerns that suits you best.
Now, it bears mentioning that the wild popularity of the Glock brand had led the manufacturer to offer a wide range of boutique specialty parts and fan-boy extras with price points that make about as much sense as the price you pay for an Apple computer. Often times, you’re just paying to be part of a specialized collectors club.
If you’re in the market for a Glock, it’s a good idea to shop around. Here’s the Honest Outlaw with his review of the new Glock 19X.
