The pistol itself has only a few thousand rounds through it. I just simply can't get used to the square grip, steep grip angle and spongy trigger. But at the same time I can't fault it as it runs like a top. It's an early Gen4 so it still has all the "bad" parts in it that Glock eventually upgraded. I just never bothered to send it back to Glock to fix what doesn't seem to be broken.
Glocks are harder to master as regards accurate shooting, just as fast accurate DAO revolver shooting is the hardest of all handgun disciplines. Too many people want to "milk" a Glock trigger and that never works for accuracy. You need a quick clean press.
