Glock is very well designed for fast instinctive shooting due to the grip angle in reference to the sights, it's more angled than most pistols but once you learn to put the front sight on target and pull the trigger, you'll find it works great for fast shots, most important in CQB environments. I tried this a few times with my Mk23 (about the same grip to sight angle as most other handguns out there, and found it much harder). Glock went with the pointer finger approach, in that when you naturally raise your hand and point at an object quickly, the sights will be close to dead on, as opposed to other grip angles that'd make your shot go high.
