      I love the Glock! I was fortunate enough to shoot various models while in the Marine Corps aside from the Glocks (Beretta's, s&W M&P's, other S&W's), and the Glocks are my favorite so far. I do not currently own one, but soon hope to buy a 27 for appendix carry this summer. I shot a 23 and XD .40 a few weeks ago; boy do I like them both! I was still slightly favored the Glock...but aside from the 3 manufactures I mentioned, I have little experience with other brands.

      Voted no.
      I can appreciate Glock's durability and reliability. That being said, I just don't like the grip angle.

      Had one (G21SF), didn't really like it. Wife has s. G19. Great guns, just not my cup of coffee.

      Glocks are great guns in my opinion, very reliable, different magazine capacity options depending on the state you live in, easy to conceal depending on the model, comes in all sizes, shoots accurate, it looks good and did I mention very reliable. Glocks are the "black belts" when it comes to guns.

      I have one, a 21C. I have huge hands and it feels great. Not real impressed with it's looks, but there are times when function trumps form.

      They're not for everybody. Usually those with more than average firearms experience like them.

      Tried the Glocks out when I was shooting with friends. Never found one I liked or one that liked me. I have 5 revolvers and 4 Autos. I am in the market for another auto. It won't be a Glock. My friends like them so I say good for them but I like steel guns.

      I have a glock 26 and that little gun has really impressed me! For a small gun it is very easy to shoot accurately, even with +P loadings. I've only shot the gun about 600-700 times but have never had a failure to fire or eject. The glock 26 is really fun to shoot, and I'm thinking about buying some glock 17 magazines for my 26. And, many of my favorites guns are ugly

      Yeah, have a g36. Makes for a nice easy to carry .45 auto. Also contemplating a g34 for fun.

      I don't understand at all when people say things like this. Do only the ugly guns work? I was under the impression that there were thousands of guns to choose from, half of which are not ugly. I would hope one of these options also "does the job", or gun manufacturers aren't doing their jobs properly.

      No reason a person cannot have pretty and reliable, if that is what they are looking for.

      Ditto. I agree, i'd prefer a pretty one that works over an ugly one, and that applies to more than just handguns.

      Although my design training came equipped with the rubric "form follows function," there is no restriction within that æsthetic that says that edges can't be smoothed, lines can't be made to flow, boxy shapes can't be rounded, and curves can't be, well, curvaceous.

      I have to admit that some parts of some Glocks exhibit some of those modifications.
      But when one considers the Glock Gestalt (the Germanically-appropriate word), æsthetics seems to have not only been forgotten, but also actively thrown out the nearest factory window.

      But, yes, they do go BANG! when you want them to. It's just that doing that isn't enough.

      Glocks seem to be fine tools. I like them for that purpose. Since I can also get the beauty of a well made steel handgun that works just as well, I tend to go that route.

      No, I don't, No I never will, unless someone GIVES me one, and then I would sell it, or trade it just as fast as I could. I just don't like or trust the unsafe "Safe Action" trigger system on Glocks or any of the other Glock copies. such as... S&W Sigma, M&P, Taurus 24-7, Springfield XD, etc. Uh, and did I mention how UGLY they are?
