Glock: Why It's America's Most Popular Handgun

More than $100 million in sales for 26 straight years.

Bloomberg's Matt Miller takes a look at the history of the Glock handgun, and how the rise of the weapon's popularity mirrored its appearance in pop culture and on the streets during the 1980s cocaine wars.

Gun ownership is not a privilege. It is a right and a necessity. Unfortunately Americans have let go of all their rights and turned them into privileges. Life gets harder and harder and yet Americans continue to vote the same people into office over and over again. How stupid!

I'm surprised Glock doesn't send Obama a commission check for boosting sales

I hate Glocks. They are still nothing but :"Double Action Only" guns. Glocks are "Pussy Guns"

Glocks work. Period end of story and thats why they are popular. Carried by most Police Depts than any other issue gun. Same is true in most countries as well, including military.
Good value, great reliability. Boringly reliable.

In 1985 the first Glock I ever saw disassembled itself violently halfway through the second magazine. My friend Ron who had just bought the pistol was very lucky he wasn't seriously injured. Any desire I had to own a Glock vanished that day. I'm still shooting the Browning High Power I was going to retire if had bought a Glock, it's never malfunctioned except for bad ammo in over 40 years. The last few years I don't shoot as much as I used to but I still put three or four hundred rounds a year through it. It's been a great sidearm for me.

Sagebrush,

The high power is a great gun, especially if yours is old enough to be Belgium...

I always loved those and the other John Browning patent, the 1911.

Gompers,

It's made in Belgium and your right, the 1911 is one of the best sidearms ever built. Judging from all the 1911 Colts and clones being manufactured today, it's going to be around for at least another century or two.
