Welcome to Firearms of America! Today, let’s talk about Glock pistols. Now, you can’t really say that the Glock handgun is the best handgun ever made. The truth is, Glock could have been much better. The trigger could have been better. The sights could have been better.

Here are some Glocks on Palmetto State Armory site:

Starting from Glock gen 1, all the way to Glock gen 5, while there were some decent improvements, fundamentally, not much have changed.

So many things that could have been better and yet, Glock is and will always be the number one choice of a sidearm. And yes, there have been many sidearms in service and they were pretty amazing. The 1911s, Beretta M9, Sig Sauer M17… great guns… and still, they will never replace a good old Glock. Why?

Well, in this video, I want to try and explain the reasoning behind this Glock obsession. My personal favorite is Glock 17 gen 5. Of all the pistols I have reviewed in the past three years, if you ask me to pick the one and only pistol that I would be willing to rely on as a sidearm, without hesitation, it would be my Glock 17 generation 5, which of course, I have done couple of review on. Here they are:

Valentine Arms Threshold Glock 17 Gen 5 Review (NEARLY PERFECT Glock 9mm Review) –

Whichever Glock models your favorite, at the end of the day, you probably made a good choice, since it is a Glock.

So, what do you guys think? What would be your choice of the sidearm? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for watching!
