    Form vs Function.... Function wins every time in my opinion. As far as I'm concerned, there are very few ugly guns. They all have their little quirks.

    I have a G32C .357Sig that goes bang every time I want it to. Great shooter and that's all I need it to do. I have a Concealed Carry license for my not so pretty gun, and an Open Carry permit for my beautiful wife. People can stare at her, it keeps them distracted! hehehe

    Make the slide contour on other models like the 45 GAP series


    Also interchangable backstraps. Not only for the obvious reason and the changing industry but so that crimson trace can come out with a really nice backstrap laser grip like they did with the M&P. Would also allow companies like hogue to come out with some aftermarket rubberized backstraps for better grip with wet hands. Everything else is perfect

    Due to my own experiences.

    I would only change two things about a Glock... I wish they could flare out the beavertail; widen and lengthen it about .10in so i can actually buy one.

    Second, take a lesson from HK and make a P30 type grooved grip. With interchangeable straps. The G19 grooves and grip felt pretty good, but smoother grip grooves make a huge difference (P30 is the most comfy grooved gun on the market.)

    Everyting else seemed nice to me.

    For the most part I think Glocks are fine the way they are, however they DO need to jump on the interchangeable-grip-strap- system bandwagon. They are due. Would be nice to have the option of a slightly wider, longer backstrap for fat palms here.

    I like everything except the klugy, outdated squared off trigger guard. Time to get rid of it!

    I've never heard anyone say they bought a Glock because it was beautiful. They make a gun that shoots pretty straight, every time you pull the trigger, and doesn't require very much from the user to operate at peak efficiency. It would probably piss people off if they ever tried to make it pretty.

    How can you improve upon PERFECTION? Seriously, though, I don't buy my guns to look pretty. Hardly anyone will ever even see them besides me. I carry the 36 and sometimes the 30. Am looking to get a 27 so that I can have a .40 S&W and a 9mm but am not looking for good looks but functionality and ease of use. My Glocks go bang every time, hit what I aim at, and assure me that I am safer with one on my person. If one wants pretty, he/she can buy a Kimber or a SIG or even a Springfield Armory. If you want affordable reliability, buy a Glock.

    Ahhh...........another satisfied G36 owner! I carry mine daily and love it also. Unfortunately, I may put it on the block to fund another project (but I hope I can manage the funds without selling it).

    I wouldn't mind seeing that front slide bevel on the sub compact models carried over to the others. I think it looks better and provides a degree of function. I'm partial to contoured and rounded slides. Breaks up the outline, improves the draw and less to poke at ya for carry. Steel sights would be nice but I change out to or buy with Night sights anyway.

    that isnt going to happen untill gaston dies. He like the drain plug, thats why they havent made a real short frame.

    Man, I don't care about looks. Give me solid, sturdy, accurate enough, and absolutely goes bang every single time. My G17 has 5K plus rounds through it and still functions exactly like it did when new, and will still put 5 in 4 inches at 25 from a rest, or at 15 if we're working out like we mean it.
    Having said that, there is a reason for the "veritable cornucopia" of defensive pistols on the market. They're like girls, i won't dog yours, don't dog mine and there won't be none.

    Find what feels right, buy a bunch of ammo, and shoot it until competent. As long as it's reliable, it'll do.

    i think they should make some subtle changes on the slide, but not too much to take away from the traditional Glock look

    I have the G23.

    It's black and evil looking.

    That's beautiful to me!

    I would like to see them do away with the finger groves.They bother me.My fingers just lay on top of the groves on the G19 and not down in where the grip would feel better.Like riding horses,you have to sit deep in the saddle,not on top of it for comfort and control.
    I would like to see a slimmer profile as well.As far as the grip angle goes though,I can over look that flaw but it would be nice to see it get online with the rest of us who prefer the 1911 grip angle.
    I would not change it's reliability,trigger or light weight at the cost of the changes that I have just mentioned.
