Better is an opinion. The better firearm is the one that suits the need. A Springfield Armory TRP 1911 is better than a Glock. But would I say the same in regards to my EDC? No, it’s hard to beat a Glock for a carry weapon. IMO it has the features I prefer in a carry weapon. No exposed hammer or other parts like safety, mag release, slide release. Has no sharp or pointy bits. Very cost effective. They’re light weight, and most important, super reliable. Now, as for a range weapon, the Glock falls way short. I really don’t even bother spending much time shooting Glocks at the range, I have better guns for that.

Some would say a hi point is better . Your right it Depends on the application.

We all know I’m not a fan of the Glock like most
But that article is very subjective
And nine of those were in the same range dollar wise as the Glock
Just my .02

Yeaaah think I’d rather carry muh glock then those suggested. Maybe the hk…?? But I know my glock has performed when asked. I now carry my shield more then anything because of the size.

ppq is a great example of a glock rival. I actually bought one and now I am thinking about carrying it over my glock 19 gen 5

I know it is kind of big but what ever you do - do not check out the PPG5M/SF

I believe my Canik TP9DA is better than any of the 9mm Glocks I’ve fired. And for half the price. AND it’s based on a Walther design (P99) so the trigger is superior versus the factory Glock. Though if I’m honest and money no object a PPQ .45 would be my preference. They really should do a 10mm…

Disclaimer: I’m not a Glock fan, but I own 2 or 3. I am definitely respectful to the platform they made.

The first three choices they put put down, wouldn’t even have been on my list. #4 is just a fancy kind of Glock, and #5 is literally a fancy Glock.

FNH, Sig and Springfield

I guess it depends on what you consider the Glock’s best features.

Reliable.

You don’t get attached to them so you can dump them after a shoot (including police confiscation).

High capacity where that is allowed.

That’s all I can come up with. :roll_eyes:

Far better options. Glock has a linkage between the trigger and the striker, and it’s a bit sloppy.
