I confess. The title caught my eye. I resisted the Glock craze for years and just recently bought my first, a model 17. I also must admit after shooting it some, I was pleasantly surprised. All these years I had remained "old school". I had always liked (and still do) hammers, de-cockers, and safety's on pistols. Of course, this isn't to say that all three are prerequisites for me before buying a handgun. I enjoy all sizes and shapes of revolvers too. When I first began to research Glock pistols I found there was an abundance of information, forums, etc. on the subject and plenty of Glock owners who will freely offer the opinion pro or con. I have a couple of friends who are polar opposites when it comes to the Glock's vs. 1911's (or any other gun vs. a Glock for that matter). I enjoyed (still do) hearing them go at it as they debated this subject. Both usually make some valid arguments for their gun of preference and in the end agree to disagree. Anyhow, this isn't a pro or anti Glock rant by me, but a well written short article about a hobby becoming an obsession (tongue in cheek of course). If you happen to be a Glock fan, I think you will really enjoy this piece. If you are not, I still believe you will appreciate the humor the article contains.
