I love my Ruger SR40c (have to get that out of the way) I like some features that Glock has. i like the interchangeability of their mags into any model of same caliber. I like their very pronounced reset. I don't like their feel in my hand. (the Ruger beats them in that by far). I appreciate the Ruger safety trigger (Very Glock like). But in the same sense that's all the safety you get with a Glock. It's not a definitive Bad vs Good. its a matter of personnel choice. They say safety is a mental exercise. The gun instructor i had side works as a personnel body guard, so a manual safety obviously slows him down. I also believe Glocks not very forgiving. They are finicky, and maybe a bit too unforgiving to a novice. maybe sometime time in the future, I'll change my mind. Right now price wise , quality wise ill stick with Ruger & Smith & Wesson (in that order).
