We all have favorites, right? But how bout when it comes to GLOCKs? Could one argue that it’s impossible to have a favorite GLOCK given that they’re all virtually the same? As it’s been said, a GLOCK is a GLOCK is a GLOCK.
I believe there is some truth to that impression because aside from size and caliber, all GLOCKs function the same, look the same and in many ways feel the same. There isn’t really that much of a difference from one GLOCK platform to the next. It’s what makes them great. It’s what also makes them ordinary, paradoxically. Given this reality, how then does one pick a favorite GLOCK?
Perhaps I’m over-thinking the question… In any event, I asked Gunny, R. Lee Ermey, what his favorite GLOCKs were and he answered it in a way that was rather insightful, basically, his rather cogent response was it depends on what the task at hand is. Shooting pigs in South Texas: a GLOCK 40. Everyday carry: GLOCK 19. Concealed carry: GLOCK 42. And so on.
I like that answer. And I think it’s the right answer, given my earlier philosophizing. But perhaps you feel differently. Perhaps you have a favorite GLOCK, one that you think should be prized above all else, one that is a clear leader of the pack. If so, please let us know which GLOCK that is.
