    I do not. Aesthetics are far too vital for me, when it comes to my guns.

    Thank you, thank you, Holly !

    I might have bought a Glock in a moment of weakness, way back when. After all, an engineer is supposed to value function over form.
    But, then I thought about it overnight, and I realized that as a single person, I don't make love to my kitchen appliances either.

    You got it, brother. I've never had any desire whatsoever for a Glock (unless I could pick one up for a song and then immediately trade it for yet another Beretta!)

    I'm working in Atlanta, GA this week on business (I'm in law enforcement) and we're right here by Smyrna, GA where they're assembled. Although I have shot several in my line of work, I do not own one personally. I've gone the SIG route just simply because I like the way they feel better than the Glocks. As a matter of fact yesterday my partner and I took a drive over to Smyrna Police Distributors and he actually ended up buying a Glock model 35 Gen 4 in .40 S&W. A nice gun, just not for me.

    I don't own one. I don't see why pay more for a Glock when I have cheaper pistols (Sigma 9mm and Sig P250c 40sw) that did well.

    I already have three .45 ACP Government Models and one Star PD, not to mention my AMT .45 Backup.
    What would I use a Glock for?

    Shooting, teaching other how to properly use a polymer handgun, home defense, in the garage. There are many reasons to own one most of them are good reasons.

    I believe that shooting skills are transitive.
    I taught Jean to shoot with one of my full-size .45s, with the full expectation that the skills she learned would transfer easily and with little added coaching to the use of any other pistol she could choose.
    My belief proved true, as I knew it would, and I observed as Jean quickly acclimatized to her S&W Airweight Bodyguard revolver and her Kel-Tec P3AT.

    I've owned 5 over the years... Not really a fan now. I have none, and no plans to buy another.

    I generally prefer rubber grips - which necessitates a metal gun (since I hate those slip on grips). I also prefer DA/SA guns

    I have the utmost respect for Glock, that being said, I guess it's what train you jump on. I was first introduced to Beretta as my stepfather owned a 25 auto jetfire and I was immediately impressed with it's quality, bought a 92G after
    i got out of the army, which is and has been flawless, then purchased 2 Storms which are fantastic pistols w/ a really good DA/SA. The way i figure it is why jump off the Beretta train? I too prefer a good DA/SA as well. I must say the only time I've shot a Glock was back aways and it was a G19 and I shot it well and was impressed, but comparing it to the SA on my Beretta 92 the trigger felt like a staple gun, however, I shot it very well and it performed flawlessly. Just a matter of personnel preference, both are great pistols and I would own either.

    First time poster - Traded a Beretta 92FS for a Glock 19 for a RIA 1911. Happy with my decision.

    Yup Have many, shoot them all, and I like 'em. Aesthetics? Holly, they look fine from the back.
