I can only speak for myself when I say this because everyone is different and has their own opinions. I personally have never liked Glocks because they look like something my kids built with their Lego's. For me, shooting a gun is like hitting a golf ball. You know, when a golfer tells you that he likes the look of the club head as it lies behind the ball, it's an image thing. The more comfortable I am with the look, the better I shoot. This being said, I shot a couple of Glocks last month and really enjoyed them all. From what I understand Glocks are some of the most reliable handguns out there, and by far the most bang for the buck when you consider all the accessories you can purchase through the aftermarket suppliers. Needless to say, I'm now in the market for a Glock 17 that I plan on converting to IPDA/USPSA style race gun.
