    I guess you just need to know how much material you can safely remove.
    I've never seen one break but I have seen them thinner and more fragile that I would prefer. It's a pretty tough Polymer but it is just a matter of not taking too much off.

My buddy that has a couple Glocks absolutely loves it. To me it is so meh. I want so bad to love the gun but even though I can shoot it accurately I would just rather shoot any other gun I own. Anyone else have the same experience?
    The definition of glock in the dictionary would be: Meh

    Used to be a crazy amazing wonder firearm, now days it's just an antiquated and over rated platform, in a sea of firearms that offer exactly the same reliability with countless other enhancements.

    I'm pretty sold on walther out of the modern striker fired guns. They have an element of specialiness, while giving you all the benefits of a glock. Overall, just a deeply refined and improved glock. I also find the beretta APX to be a pretty special firearm.
    Never forget, democrats held American lives hostage, 3 times, in March, 2020.

    LOL, I'll stick with my antiquated over rated firearm since most would consider me antiquated, that must be why I like it. I've learned "deeply refined and improved" can sometimes be doublespeak for an excess of unnecessary parts to break.

    When do you start to like your Glock huh... well personally I’ve found the p320 and other sigs... between sigs and 1911 platforms I’ve divested all my glocks down to only my Glock 23 and 19. I just can seem to part with those two “classics”? although they are not my favorites.

    It is what it is, I like my G-45, but I just purchased an as new G-17 3rd gen NHTP is putting new Glock night sights on to soon, and if that does not change it's point of impact, so far this pistol is very accurate for me, and is a keeper. In fact over the years since 1992, I have rarely shot or have seen a Glock I do not like, well I don't mean the bubba'd custom stippleicious ones.

    Some people have GDS (Glock Derangement Syndrome). They hate Glocks, they want you to hate Glocks, they want everybody to hate Glocks. These people probably should not try to like Glocks since their prejudice will not let them.

    They like to pick on the grip angle a lot. I can shoot pretty well with anything from a Luger to a Tokarev TT-33. I feel very fortunate that my hands can use screwdrivers and other hand tools and power tools with all sorts of grip angles quite well. When using silverware I can hit my face most of the time. I am happy I don't have to measure the degrees of grip angle to see if I can use something.

    Some people just aren't meant to have the very best.
    Medium speed. Moderate drag.

    I tried a 17 Long Slide for competition shooting a few decades ago, and sold it soon after. People can shoot them, and shoot them well. I likely could have adapted to them, but I chose to stay with the several I already liked. I was reloading the ammo to get the recoil down as low as possible while still cycling and knocking down the plates. It was a speed shoot at the time, and speed was everything. The first thing I noticed was the very small surface the slide rode on, seemed very fragile although they have proven reliable over the years. The second thing I noticed was the grip angle, every single time I would point the pistol at a target, I would have to make a deliberate effort to point the gun down a bit, it was like having to aim the pistol then reaim the pistol. Pain in the butt because every other pistol I owned shot great with the same grip angle. I did not want every pistol I owned to have one grip angle, then have to adapt to a Glock every time I shot it. Most pistols have a robust slide stop so whatever the mainspring doesn't slow down, gets slammed into that stop. When I loaded the ammo a bit lighter for my use it would jam, but it wouldn't jam in my other 9mm pistols. I ordered several Glock mainsprings to try to work a load that I liked with a spring that would cycle the pistol. My other pistols would eat everything from the hottest loads to the lightest. For personal protection, I insist on carrying with a round in the chamber, but I also like a single double action so that eliminates the Glock at the time, and unfortunately most pistols made today. I carried a smith and wesson shield for a while only because I wanted something compact and I couldn't find any single double actions that compact, but I always felt like I had to be extra careful with it due to it being a striker fired pistol. I always felt like I had a single action with no safety, since the trigger being accidentally pulled lightly would fire the gun. Yea, I know, don't pull the trigger, but sometimes things happen. That is why so many accidental discharges happen with striker fired pistols vs revolvers or SA / DA pistols. My SA / DA's are much harder to pull at 10 lbs and a long pull. As mentioned already, Glock has oversized chambers, so they will bulge the case when fired which works the brass more and makes it harder to reload.

    A few of my friends who are also excellent shooters own them, carry them, and I understand the reasons they do. I know my pistol is much more expensive to lose if God forbid I end up having to use it in self defense. I figure if I lose it in a self defense shooting, it did it's job and I have much more to be thankful for and to worry about than the police holding onto my pistol while a court determines if I will keep my freedom. I assume it will all work out eventually, but it's not a perfect world and innocent men do go to prison sometimes. I don't ever plan to use mine unless it is life or death, and then I have no choice but to hire a good lawyer and hope a jury of my peers will understand it was necessary.

    You may like it after owning it a while, for me the grip angle being different than every other pistol I owned was the deal killer. Good luck, and it should be worth selling if you finally decide you don't like it.

    Buy one of those green felt Tyrolean hats with a feather in the hat band. Start eating elderberries. Take up yodeling. Give it a few months.
