Yesterday, Liberté Austin and I trained with Tactical Fitness guru Ron Grobman. Liberté’s GLOCK constantly failed to go into battery. Easy, GLOCK fans! Ms. Austin recently sliced open her right hand in an I-forgot-there-was-a-knife-in-the-kitchen-sink bloodbath. Shooting with her left hand, unable to grip the gun tightly with her right, she was limp wristing worse than Cameron Tucker. Besides, we all know GLOCKs are the sine qua non of reliable self-defense pistols. But is reliability the best reason to carry a GLOCK?
It sure ain’t looks. A GLOCK is the only gun that makes a Toyota Corolla look stylish. It’s also true that the GLOCK’s point-of-aim is only marginally more natural than a banana bike’s monkey bars. But hey, Gaston’s gats are accurate and Sherman tank rugged. Effortless-to-clean (provided you remember to safety check the gun before doing so) and reliable. Did I already say that?
There’s your list. It’s not perfect, but it covers the bases. So . . . what’s the best reason to carry a GLOCK?
