Why do SOF choose Glocks?

Is it because Glocks are simple and reliable and they want to be comfortable with the pistol abundant everywhere on Earth? Or is there some other reason?

          Sure, but they are also crawling around in all kinds of compromised positions, especially if they are down to the Glock. M&Ps and P01s don't do that shit. Same price. Same thing, especially the M&P.

              Sure, I don't know shit, but there is still the "They don't use their side arms, so they go with lowest semi-reliable bidder and don't ever think about it again." Of course, the counter to that are that agencies that use sidearms only still choose glock, but then there are all the videos of them jamming.

                Your mistake is expecting use by super soldiers to be a mark of quality. If you are judging a gun by its quality then ask engineers, designers, and gunsmiths instead. Put any gun in their hands and they'll do well, because they're trained to do so. but that means their performance with it is irrelevant.

              Something tells me they are trained in how to use it well, not in knowing whether it is well-designed. Soldiers are not designers or engineers and I don't expect them to rate a gun's quality. A good chef is good at using his cutlery, but that doesn't mean he knows if the cutlery is good.

    The G19 is also compact enough for rudimentary concealment in civilian clothes while big enough to get a full 3 finger grip as a sidearm.

      Maybe. But the ones I've met have been pretty knowledgeable tbh. To the point that their special needs make the big guys like HK interested enough to start making also civilian versions such as the MR223, G28Z and HK45.
      At least for those models HK was able to save years of R&D and probably a lot of money too because former Delta Force operators helped them design them.

    Because they don't watch enough police shooting videos to see they jam 1/3rd of the time in an actual moving gunfight scenario.

    I'm almost to the point of not telling people this because I want military members, cops, and "preppers" to die.

        The many videos where Glocks fail it's just because the cop is moving during the gunfight. There are other guns where the same, if not more chaotic motion is happening and the gun doesn't jam. The M&P is a shining star in this regard, I've seen one where the cop is shooting while backing up, fricking jumps over a ravine while shooting, shoots while crawling one handed, not a hiccup. Meanwhile Glock in some cases jams when there's no motion at all sometimes, but shits the bed completely when there's lots of motion.

        The M&P also beats it in exaggerated torture tests like mud and dirt tests. There's literally no reason to fanboy for Glock when this gun exists. It's a lightweight polymer gun that actually works, that comes in all practical sizes. Literally why would you get a brick that doesn't fricking work? This is a life saving device and the evidence is out there that it will get you killed, and it has gotten cops killed.

          And do not post the hospital shooting video where the M&P jams, you can put it in slow motion and see the guy shoots with his thumb behind the slide inducing it. I've debunked this 10+ times, there are hundreds of videos of Glocks failing with no excuse and 0 of the M&P failing with no excuse despite it being the second most popular police issue handgun.

    Cheap, reliable, Glock offers a good support network, extremely common weapon for training with allied nations. Its a simple striker pistol that works that most of their other allies use, so its a why not. Same as many other SF/CT forces are using AR platforms since its cheap and cross training is easy with it.

    Plus in the wide world of things, sidearms aren't necessarily the top priority equipment. Its a backup piece, outside of protection missions where they may CC it, but most of those missions are covering for people where the guys with rifles are right around the corner 99% of the time.

    Because beyond a baseline standard of light, high capacity, compact and reliable, military pistols don't matter; even for SOF. Like yeah people have started memeing the M&P in the last few years, and it is a good gun, but the differences between it and the glock (changeable grips, slightly lower bore axis, etc) are not things that actually matter. The Glock is the AR of pistols, where its not that nothing can be better, but to justify changing it would have to be substantially better and there's nothing like that.

    No.

    It's because sidearms are sidearms, only needed in a very narrow set of circumstances, and therefore can be the CHEAPEST option that is still reliable.
