Few firearms are as well-known as the Glock pistol. The polymer-framed, semiautomatic pistol is considered by some to be a massive step forward for handguns, and by others as an ugly gun with all the aesthetics of a brick. No matter where you stand, it is hard to deny that as a whole, Glocks are some of the most popular and best-selling firearms of the the last three decades. Their ease of use, high capacity, and affordability has made Glock firearms nearly ubiquitous among both gun owners and law enforcement agencies across the globe.
