    Because Glockslop is what most people have been conditioned to like nowadays so thats where the market is. Same with ARs, soulless and tiresome.
    I shot my 92fs for the first time in forever. Felt good man. Forgot how comfy and accurate it is.

      Your DOA trigger is inferior to the SA of a 1911 and weighs double for the same capacity of a Glock 17

        I like the weight, plus I have 18 rounds mags. I can live with the long trigger pull, if you train with it you get use to it. Like anything else.

            Unfortunately no, just white dots. But I have yet to find a gun that is as comfortable as a 92fs to shoot. I have larger hands so it feels perfect. Frickin thiccc

    People are, ironically, afraid of safeties. I have a USP which I carry sometimes (I actually have it on me right now) and disengaging the safety with my thumb while drawing is second nature. 1911 style safeties are the same way. I think the current fear of carrying wienered and locked is from gun owners who buy a handgun for self defense and then rarely ever practice with it, and the prevalence of handguns with moronic slide safeties that are less natural to flip off when drawing.

      yeah it's crazy, that advice drives me up the wall. If someone isn't going to train with it enough to learn to disengage a safety, they should just get a revolver, because they're probably gonna ND one day when they "clear" the chamber before removing the mag.

      There's only a handful of scenarios, where I think a striker fired gun without a safety is a good idea.

          no, if you train with it you're not going to forget to disengage the safety anymore than you'll forget to pull the trigger. It's a moronic argument, pretty much every long gun has a safety and people have been successfully using those in such situations for a long time. No one ever brings this moronic argument up when recommending AR-15s for home defense, but magically when it's on a pistol, you'll definitely forget in the heat of the moment.

          The only scenario I think I would recommend it would be a store owner who's going to keep it off body behind a counter or something AND not train with it. Since it's much more likely they'll need to make a longer shot, like 10+ yards, which someone who doesn't train, probably wouldn't make with a double action.

            the only caveat is that you need to train correctly with the safety. Don't cheat and leave it off the whole time your at the range, reengage it each time you're done shooting and disengage it before and it won't be an issue.

            tbh I grew up shooting long guns only, which all had safeties. So maybe it's easier for me since I have more muscle memory, but even if you don't, if you shoot with any regularly I think it'll become second nature in a short amount of time.

        Revolver should be the standard for sure but marketing is very effective. I prefer carrying a Glock AIWB than a 1911 personally. You can get a Glock striker block (SCD) which allows you to thumb the striker plate which mimicks the act of reholstering a DA gun. Something about looking down and seeing a wienered hammer pointed towards my groin just doesn't feel right. To each their own.

    I only have 2 plastic guns, one is a Glock 17 and the other is a Ruger SR9. Honestly the SR9 is more enjoyable to shoot and seems more accurate. Wish I hadnt bought it for $400 8 years ago and waited. Shits like $250 bucks now...

    Learn to study logistics and firearm engineering history. Glock invented a high capacity polymer gun that was cheap, reliable, and easy to mass produce quickly in a time when everything was expensive, not really that great capacity wise, and took a long time to mass produce and retool factories for new models. The Glock didn't take over fully until relatively recently, the last 20 years or so, despite being a 40+ year old design. Being easy to mass produce also allowed for multiple models and aftermarket mods, making the pistol a civilian accessible modular design. The Germans/Austrians invented literally the first for almost every military and civilian firearm in the 20th century and late 19th century (most of them from one man, Hugo Schmeisser, MP18 and all of its copies first infantry SMG, STG 44 and the AK 47 personally first infantry SG, STG 45 and all of its copies think MP5 and G3: from other individuals Germans also revolutionized the MG with the MG34 and MG42 and their predecessors and future MG42 copies which most countries use to this day, the infantry semi-auto auto loading pistol role in the C93 and others later, first high BC smaller cal smokeless service rifle cartridges ie 7x57, Mauser action which is also used to this day prolifically since patents expire just like the Glock patent, and Gaston Glock's and HK's as the first widespread polymer pistols spawning an entire new niche which has since taken over the civilian and military markets).

        You say that like its bad thing. You live in an outsized kraut influenced world. Every single country in Europe founded in the last 1500 years was originally founded by a barbarian Jarl that spoke Germanic speak. And an OG MG42 firing tracers is pure sex, literally the peak.

    They're unnecessarily complicated to use and manufacture compared to Glocks and Glock clones.

        The USAF replaced their 1911s with snubbie revolvers because they thought it would take too long to teach a draftee to become familiar with its manual of arms.
        They were also the first ones to advocate for adopting the M9 as well, so maybe it's all irrelevant

    Striker guns are cheap as frick. Nearly every manufacturer has a striker gun you can buy for $200-400. All of the hammer fired, DA/SA guns are going for $500 and up. It's just cheaper to buy a striker gun, they usually are pretty lightweight with decent specs and you don't have to worry about a safety.

    More complex, more bulk, more weight. Hard to compete with Glock which any monkey brained weirdo can take apart with a set of punches.
    The problem is that the Glock copies are much more complex and defeat the purpose of having an extremely utilitarian pistol. The modular guns are promising but ~~*sig*~~ is just a shite company and it's difficult to trust anything they do.

    I carry DA with one in the chamber.
    To me that's the entire point.
    All studies show that trigger pull length is the most important safety feature on any handgun.
    And DA/SA is easy to learn if you practice like once a year.
    Am I based or moronic or both?

    Because the market is more focused on conceal carrying and striker's lend themselves to this better than hammers because lower bore axis -> more real estate for grip -> easier to conceal.

    ~~~~~reddit spacing~~~~~~~

    The only way you can combat this is by being gigabased HK and creating the P30SK in light LEM. The lack of pinky becomes irrelevant because of the modular grip panels (the body is round) and consistent trigger pull.
