    Appreciating Glock again

    It is interesting... Two of my very first handguns were Glocks - got my G17 back in 1993... But, I eventually moved on... Owning a few Glocks here and there over the years - but never really "liking them."

    25+ years and 3 digits worth of guns later - I feel like I have owned almost everything at one point in time... Well, I picked up a Glock 48 earlier this year, and that got me appreciating Glocks again.

    Then, I bought a 5th Gen G19 last month, and a 5th Gen G34 last week... Both with Ameriglo night sights....

    It must be the change to the grip with the 5th Gen, because I really like the way the gun feels in the hands. And, I can appreciate the simplicity of the Glock design. Amazing that they came up with that all those years ago...

    Now, I find myself wanting more

    Looks like you've found the right place...

    Glocks are simple guns.. But they shoot...

    I didn’t mind finger grooves but really loved the feel of Gen1 and Gen2 Glocks - as long as my hands aren’t sweaty. The Gen5 feels like the best of both worlds.

    But, the best thing Glock did was widen the rear sights!! I was surprised how much difference it made for me (I now need reading glasses) - enough to start replacing my Dawson rears with wider notches when I can.

    Cool.

    I have the Orange, factory Ameriglo night sights. I really like those sights!
