Glocks and Burgers
Just like burgers, everyone has their own preference when it comes to their favorite gun.
Some people love a good ol' fashion hamburger from MacDonald's. Others, like myself, enjoy a big juicy "Locals Only" burger from Off-Site Kitchen in Dallas, TX. This amazing burger is made of a ground roll and cold flat top Angus beef patty, crispy bacon, roasted jalepeños, dripped with American cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, mustard, and tomatoes between two perfectly toasted, buttered, and slightly sweet shiny miraculous buns. ...Okay, now, I want one. Anyways..back to what I was saying. Both are burgers, but as I may be a burger snob..I may be a gun snob. And that's just my preference.
Glocks are like your go-to, every day MacDonald's burger.
They're reliable. They're cost efficient. They're in every city. ALMOST everyone has had a taste of one. And even those who aren't fanatics know what they are and can recognize one. And there's nothing wrong with that.
However, just like MacDonald's is not my go-to burger, a Glock is not my go-to gun. Yes, I respect the reliability and cost efficiency of a G34, and it covers all the basics (just like a burger from Mickey D's consists of a beef patty and buns). But if you truly enjoy the art and aesthetics of guns like I appreciate a gourmet bacon burger that I can "#FoodPorn" from Off-Site Kitchen, you'll understand why my HK VP9 should not be compared to a Glock 34.
When comparing the two, it's off of pure emotion and attraction. Yes, I want reliability-which the VP9 is pretty damn reliable-, but I also want something that will satisfy all my cravings. And sorry, folks, a straight stock G34 doesn't do it for me. If I'm going to have a cheat day and eat a burger, I'm going to go all the way. If I'm going to invest in a gun, it's going to be one that I love.
Now, I can get a Glock customized exactly the way I want with ease...and that, in my opinion, is the best thing about them. But why buy your own bacon, cheese, lettuce, and grill your own onions to throw on a MacDonald's burger, when you can have everything you want and need in a "Locals Only" burger? The trigger on the VP9 is butter. The grip fits my hands perfectly. The serrations are perfectly placed for how I rack my slide. And I thoroughly enjoy it.
All this to say, I love ya'll and appreciate you looking out for me. But please, stop telling me to buy a Glock. Just like there is no "one burger fits all", there is no "one gun fits all." MacDonald's will do the job, but I'll take my Off-Site Kitchen burger.
What is your favorite burger? What is your go-to gun and why? Love reading your comments!
Be back after I grab this burger,
