He probably considers it short term!
At one time, 64 looked like near death, and 80 was unthinkable!

Hell, neither look that bad today!

Hmm... I have 5 or 6 of them and like them just fine, but I also like FN, Sig, CZ, Springer, Baer, Wilson, S&W, HK... Glocks are indestructible and go bang every time:-) different strokes - when I want aesthetically pleasing I shoot a Sig, a BHP or a Springer Pro - when I might beat the shit out of a sidearm I pull out a Glock

My Colt 1911 is by far my favorite pistol, however you cant beat the ruggedness and reliability of a Glock. Enough said.

Put about 15,000 miles on them, get a new one, repeat!
When you buy one, ya kinda stuck with it, and then it cost money on upkeep and you always loose money when you get rid of the thing.
If it floats, flies, or f@#ks, it's cheaper to rent.

Have never owned a Glock and the model I want they won't sell me. The G25 is only full size high capacity 380 on the market. They sell them to civilians in Europe and South America but not U.S. They put adjustible sights on them to earn enough points to import then remove the sights once "in-country" and sell to law enforcement only. Why in heck go to that much trouble and disqualify 90+% of your potential market. A G25 would be perfect pistol for my wife. She currently has three Walther PK380's as her primary pistols. Would happily lay a G25 on her nightstand and put one in her truck. Purchased two boxes of the new Hornady Critical Defense 100 grain Low Recoil 9mm rounds to test with her in a SIG 2022. If she likes will pick up another couple of SIG's for her.

Something about a polymer slide in polymer frame, striker fired pistol just has never attracted me. I don't dislike or hate Glock's, just only model have a need for can't buy. Can buy G25 magazines with no issue. If Wolf, Glock Meister or anyone made a 380 barrel for a G19 could swap barrel and mag, swap springs and have a G25 clone. Perfect girly gun for cops only...

My G-27 is my all time CCW piece & I can carry it concealed easily, all day long...I would not trade it for anything. Night sights & Talon grip wrap or skater tape makes it perfect. Gen 3 for me even though I am a lefty...
