Glock pistols have been making the top list of the best-selling handguns for years, and not for no reason. These guns are durable and easy to maintain, while the company is notable for fantastic customer support.
The popularity of Glocks in the U.S. began in the 1980s after the pivotal Miami shooting occurred in 1986. The accident prompted the U.S. police to seek semi-automatic pistols that would replace revolvers, the limited capacity of which became a real problem. At that time, Glocks were taking over Europe, and it caught the attention of U.S. law enforcement.
Glocks have never been standard-issue sidearms for the U.S. Army. However, they were adopted by several LE agencies and services. This fact contributed to the popularity of Glocks among civilians.
Representation and strengths, such as extreme reliability, simplicity of design, customization, and variety of models in all popular calibers, have made these pistols go-to self-defense weapons.
