    Not me, I like the way Glock looks or it has grown on me. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A little blocky perhaps, but when someone says a Glock is more reliable than a Beretta they are talking complete nonsense and would venture to say have never owned a Beretta. I've had a 92G since 1995 and that firearm has never malfuntioned unless due to a worn mag spring. Just recently changed out the locking block and extractor and spring after 18 years of service and I'd run it against any firearm new or used to see which one hickuped first. My brother owns a 92FS since 1998 and his gun has never malfucntioned. He likewise owns a 32 Tomcat and that gun has never malfunctioned. I likewise own a PX4 subcompact and that little beast has never malfunctioned after 2,300 rounds. Bought an early model PX4 compact and it hickuped on light loads until I got the new recoil spring from Beretta and now that gun has never malfunctioned after 1,300 rounds. Now granted, I know how to take care of my firearms and change the recoil springs and magazine springs when needed. M9's have been documented to go 168,000 rounds before any malfunction and having owed one for the last 18 years I truly believe it. Now if someone said both Glock and Beretta's are extremely reliable, thats more like it.

    I said earlier, "Glock vs. Beretta... Glock wins every time," You got me on this one Shipwreck. I was extremely wrong...

    The Beretta Px4 is something else man, I purchased an used one today and shot it even, one can i just say I love the safety... Tested accuracy of my Glock vs. Beretta at 15 yards, 30 yards, and maybe 40-50 yards (idk really far away). Glock = Beretta, wonder if its that rotating barrel???

    This may be my future duty gun, maybe Ill have one in .40 even, I like it that much

    I will say I still think Glock has an advantage in that MANY officers (and federal agencies) use glock, interchangeable parts, mags, and etc. with your colleagues or people you run accross gives you an advantage in the field

    The Glocks are good guns no doubt, my brother has a G17 Generation 1, and has never had a problem with it - even with his crappy reloaded ammo he shoots thru it! I have shot it, but don't care for the grip angle that much. I have to constantly tell myself to "aim low", otherwise my rounds hit high on the target. I have been practicing drawing and flicking the safety off on my Model 84F, so that it will be second nature if I ever had to deploy the weapon under stress. I'll stick to handguns with a safety on them myself - call it a personal preference.

    I have to agree with you.. Glocks have the advantages.

    @ Shipwreck

    I actually really regret this post, after my own personal experiences I have to agree with you and not with my original position

    I will say that Glock = Beretta = Sig = HK = Some S&Ws

    This thread proves that guns are personal

    This thread just goes to prove the saying, "Guns are Personal." That being said, there are some generalities to be made.

    Having started with a Ruger 9mm, and then a FNX-9, and then a Cz-2075 RAMI, I have finally settled on the best gun FOR ME so far: The Cz 75 Shadow. But it definitely took time to get to that point. I shot a lot of other rental guns along the way:

    - Beretta PX4 9mm Full Size: Loved the lower recoil and how the gun felt, I was more accurate with it, but didn't like the placement of the safeties because of how I like to rack the slide....it hurt my fingers. Also, the PX4 is thicker than I wanted for carry.
    - Beretta 92: Great shooting gun, but I was not that accurate with it.
    - Glock 17: Less muzzle-flip meant quicker target acquisition, but couldn't shoot that accurately...always shooting high. Also, just don't like the sights on the Glock.
    - Sig 226: Great gun and was accurate with it, but don't like the width or weight of the gun. I may some day get a Sig yet...I really liked how it handled and was my favorite kind of action.
    - S&W M&P: Love this pistol and may even buy one this weekend if it is still available through a used ad. Felt recoil is as good as the Cz 75 and low muzzle flip. Not crazy about the sights on the regular guns, but with a fiberoptic on the front, very nice.
    - XD/XDm: Nice guns but just don't like the grip safety.
    - Dan Wesson 1911: I shot one in a .45, and I really like the guns and next on my list to try at the range...a subcompact 9mm and .45. It is hard to get used to the trigger on the 1911's....for me.

    My point is this: Each one of us has to figure out the right gun and that takes some time and experience until we get one that we can shoot accurately, fits properly, sights that fit our eyes and our vision, and triggers that fit our finger style.

    So, I say: Why not BOTH a Beretta and a Glock!

    I always carry the same gun as my favorite TV actor carries in his series.

    Thomas Magnum carried a Government model 1911, and so did I.

    Selleck, as police commissioner Reagan carries a blued snubbie.

    And as Quigley Down Under, a rifle (which I wore with an inside the pants holster).

    If you want to carry a Glock, you are emulating Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson (The Closer, Kyra Sedgwick).

    I own a couple of Glocks that I consider to be among my finest shooters. I took the plunge today on my first Baretta. Its a 950BS .25 Cal. pocket pistol.
    Before you all start screaming for Pic's I just won it on auction today and wont actually be able to pick it up from my FFL for a couple of weeks. I also have my eye on a 92FS.

    have 4 Glock 's, G 17 , G 26 , G 22 , and G35

    just purchased first Beretta , 96 A 1 , just getting used to it, have it sitting in office at work along side the Cx4 Storm with changed out mags.

    but when I go to collect $$ ? I holster the G22 with my Sig 238 as back up...

    hope to become as comfortable with the 96 A1 as I am with the Glock's

    No one worries about spelling here. We just type and shoot.

    Your post makes no sense given the problems with a Glock's fit are they are two narrow and have a weird angle.

    Decent collection, G 26 serves me good for some odd reason, I just can't put my fingre on it

    If you lay a Glock on top of a 1911, you'll be hard pressed to find one degree of angle difference (at least I was). I was supprised to find it was very close to the same angle from the receiver.

    I find the Berettas handle better, feel more comfortable in my hand and go BANG every time as some say about the Glocks.

    I would take a Glock over Beretta any day, everyday. Berettas may feel better, but I have absolutely no luck with them whatsoever. Everyone I have ever tried to shoot has given me some sort of problem. Not only that but with the safeties, hammers, and whatnot that just means there are more parts to have to replace if something malfunctions. After all guns are just machines.

    For what it is worth. The PX4 is the ugliest gun I have ever laid my eyes apon.

    I'd just as soon be caught with a toothless crackwhore than be caught with a Glock.
    Man that is funny - I about spit my drink all over myself.

    And I agree to most of it.

    I don't personally know any crackwhores to compare it too

    And to make it even worse - I love Beretta's and especially the PX4 Storm

    I have a Glock 19. As much as I agree with the Ops statements about ugliness and not being terribly comfortable to shoot -- the fact is I've yet to find another pistol that feels any better or that I can shoot as accurately (and that includes FS92s and PX Storms). Maybe it's because I've just gotten used to the Glock.

    It's all based on personal preference...
