The grip angle did bother me, but, if you fill the hole in the mag well with devcon or marine tex, and let it dry, you can dremel down the angle.

My grip angle is that of a 1911 now. I did all the work myself with Marinetex epoxy and the dremel with a grinding bit.

Nate, some Glocks actually come with those tritrium sights...both of mine have them on there (though one is a dept issued weapon) my 27 had them on there and didnt come with the regular sights

i wouldnt buy one without the night sights
yeah, mine came with the tritium sights too, and i would never go back to the shitty stock sights, but its still an expensive option. But i got mine through a cop buddy while he was at the academy in columbia so i got a damn good deal on mine. still, i'd order some stock sights and swap em out and sell the tritiums. i just hate to see them damaged like that. my dad would love to have a set

I thought was cool .... boy was I wrong. Still happy with my Colt .45's also. Glocks do what they say they can do right out of the box.
my dad has a 1911 that he loves to death but he'd still chose his glock if he were forced to choose between the two

i clean other guns right after, but i typically neglect my glock

I'll be getting a Glock 30 as soon as I can put together the money and find one. I've heard nothing but good things.

Take other hand underneith and quickly/firmly push dominant hand upward.

Now do the same with ur fist not locked downward. Odds are ur wrist gives more and ur dominant hand moves upwards a tad more. It doesnt take much for ur shot to be off target.

I believe this was Gaston's thinking when he designed his guns. I could be wrong. Its worthless if you are not comfortable with it tho. Shoot with what u are accurate with. It may be ur life on the line, and I pass no judgement on any manufacturers. Just giving a possible reason to the glocks unique grip.

All I own are glocks and mossy, but after grabbing my 36 which is always nearby I can affirm the glock angle.

anyone else confirm my thinking?
That's the first time I've heard that and could very well be true.
Like I said the Glock is a very well designed firearm when it comes to longevity and reliability. But like you said you should shoot what you're accurare with and for me that is anything besides a glock, lol, at least on a fast draw.
I wouldn't have a problem if I owned several glocks or shot one often enough to get used to the angle, but I don't make it to the range near enough as I should and my time is better spent practicing with what I have. I enjoy cleaning my guns and when they're cleaned properly they're just as reliable (for my needs) as a glock.
