    I've shot a 22 and a 23, and various other handguns. But the only thing I've ever owned are jennings/bryco model 38 and M48. Fail. I'm changing that soon.

    And I'm not new to gun crew. I own and regularly shoot several rifles.

    It's a tad bulky, and the range slut (eg rental) couldn't decide if it wanted to shoot straight or a hair to the left. But I'll base my judgment on the private new-purchased sidearms my buddies have let me use.

    Went to go shoot my G19 and DW Valor today. Valor was flawless and the G19 brass hit me in the head more than a few times. These guys next to me got there and put up their stand at 15 yards and had huge groupings. As I left they moved it down to 25 yards which probably meant that a whole bunch won't even hit paper.

    The shitty grip angle is what not to like
     
  8. :rolleyes:

    People used to Glocks could just as easily call other guns' grip angles shitty.

    As a Glock user who used to be a hater, the bump on the back of the grip is a big part of that.
    I bet that if I shaved the bump off my G22, it'd be a lot more natural-feeling in my hand.

    Not allowed to do that to an issued pistol though.

    Grip angle and squareness are what's not to like. I still won't rid of mine though.

    Glock 19 + dremel + soldering iron = perfect pistol. (no finger grooves, thin grip, flatten back strap)

    If your not brave enough to do it you can pay someone else to do it for you.

    If it doesn't interfer with the mechanical function of your hand, it's simply a matter of getting comfortable with it. Gripping your cock felt weird the first few times too, but you grew to like that, didn't you?
