Look, I didn't mean to start a "my gun is better than your gun argument." I just said the Glock 21 performs better (and holds more rounds) than my Colt Series 70, .45 ACP. I'm not dictating to anyone what firearm they should carry. My daughter is a ballerina build, 95 lbs. 5'2". My son is 5'11, 170. Do you think the same pistol would be compatible for the both of them? ( Yes, I've had the test's done, their both mine.) Every gun manufacturer has had problems, some could be fixed, some couldn't. Colt M2000: Terrible trigger, felt like I was pulling it through broken glass. Smith & Wesson .22 Remington Jet: Never did work right. The Jet rounds bound up the cylinder, and the .22 LR inserts wouldn't fire half of the time. Ruger P85: My friend who bought one, couldn't hit a tent from the inside, I couldn't either. Etc., Etc. Most of the glock problems were with the .40 S&W Series which I think they were too hasty in introducing. Magazine problems can be fixed pretty easily. I'm sticking to my G21. Hey, I've got a Makarov back up.
