    It's not the grip angle that doesn't work for me. It's the blocky shape and the unnecessarily long span between the trigger and beavertail area. I can honestly say my double stack .45 1911 fits my hand better than a Glock model 19.

    That's got to sting for Taurus. Like John Wayne choosing a Pieta.

    Well, I have been carrying a PT145 lately, now that I've figured out how to make it work. Don't really need no stinkin' Glock. Those Glock 30s are pretty nifty, though, if they just had a thumb safety.

    oh yea they do!
    but if you live locally you can run out to the place , drop the gun, wait for the repair or go get lunch/breakfast and come back and pick it up.
    that is IF you aren't attacked by the wandering hoards of glock people that wander around competition areas and gun shows just waiting to be able to fix your glock for you.
    I think its a proven design and In my opinion likely the best factory back up in the industry, especially IF you live locally.
    I just plain old out don't like them and they don't fit me worth a flip.
    and yes I have shot a few being the father of a Deputy sheriff with a lot of law friends.

    well let me just remind you that the medical system in Brazil is NOT anywhere as good as here, so definitely be careful and don't shoot either your or the policeman in the leg or foot!!!
