Glock Pistols in NOVA
Why has the Glock become so popular? What is it about the design that appeals to so many shooters?
Take the Glock 17, arguably one of the most popular handguns ever. Glock took design elements of other pistols, modified them and rolled them all up into the Glock 17. Apparently Glock got it right because the G17 went on to become one of the most prolific handguns of the 20th century. In the United States the Glock rivals the popularity of the 1911, which is pretty amazing since a number of manufacturers make a 1911 model.. The majority of police departments in the US have at one time used the Glock pistol in 9mm, .40 S&W or .45 ACP.
Why are Glock Pistols so popular NOVA, Virginia and around the US? If you want to sum it up in one word...Reliability.
The polymer frame easily shrugs off impacts that would dent or crack other frames made of aluminum or steel. Unless you’re willing to make your handgun excessively bulky (and thus solid) it won’t be as durable as a Glock. And if it's heavy, who’d want it? Speaking of Weight...
The Glock big advantage is in its weight. Or lack thereof. The standard Glock 17 tips the scales empty at a feather-light 22 ounces. Comparable pistols come in 25 to 30 percent heavier, and if the reduce the size to hit a lighter weight, they then lack the capacity of the Glock.
Lastly, the lack of a manual safety (calm down, it has a trigger safety) makes it very ready should you need it in a hurry, or the dark, or when your life depends on it. The relatively light trigger pull coupled with the lack of a manual safety makes the Glock 17 one of the quickest handguns to introduce in a dangerous situation.
