BrianK Posted March 19 Report Share Posted March 19 Glock... When they first came out they felt like a 2x4 in my hand. I'm sure I wasn't alone in thinking that. That turned me off immediately and for decades I wouldn't even handle one, why waste my time? Maybe a year ago a gent at my LGS handed me one and I had to admit that it no longer felt like a 2x4, it felt pretty good and I was surprised. But that was years after me shooting an M&P competitively and buying an M&P 9c for EDC. Then I bought a Walther PPQ and it was even better with a really nice trigger. That was something I couldn't like about any Glock, the triggers just suck. But if I was going to buy a Glock it probably would never be a Glock, it'd be a Shadow Systems "Glock". I still don't have a Glock and probably never will. Other than the M&Ps and the PPQ, in semi-autos I've always been a fan of John Browning, to include the P-35, designs. If I do buy another semi-auto, and that's highly unlikely, it'll probably be a double stack 1911 in 9mm flavor. Why screw with trigger perfection? Yeah, I'm a trigger snob and I want that trigger to break like a glass rod and not feel like I'm bending a plastic straw. Full disclosure, the M&Ps did NOT come through with what I'd call acceptable triggers either, it took $ and work on my part to get them where I wanted them. Like 98Z I'm heavy into Kimber and I'll add heavy into the 1911 grip angle. Ideally, Kimber would redesign the BP 10 II in 9mm and add provisions for a red dot and they'd sell at least one (to me). I'd buy an Ultra 10 II in 9mm at the same time if it was similarly designed and make it my new EDC. The Ultra 10 II is smaller all over with a 3" barrel. Unlike many other DS 1911s the BP 10 II fits my hand. https://www.genitron.com/Handgun/Kimber/Pistol/Pro-BP-Ten-II/45-Auto/Variant-1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
