    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 think it does -- the XD has it in the looks department, hands down.

    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.

    I would like to see them make some changes and it has nothing to do with looks or grip angle. I shoot a Glock well but I am lefty and the mag release chewed up my hand in between my index and middle finger after about 100 rounds. I now I could grind it and reshape it but there are many other guns that do not bother me. Also being lefty there are many other guns that offer ambi controls. I can operate the right hand controls just fine with my index finger but it is nice to use my thumb.

    If they would strongly consider a Glock it they introduce ambi controls.

    It always seems that aesthetics are taboo when it comes to looking at firearms. When you purchase a vehicle, its important to have form and function. I feel the same with everything. Function is more important, but jesus, glocks are ugly as sin.

    Depends on your philosophy. Tanks and Humvees are ugly as sin too, but the military uses them because they're functional, not because they care about form. If you shoot firearms for fun or collect guns, I can see where form is important too, but I think Glock aims for the owner who is looking for the most functional weapon possible, such as law enforcement.

    As it is, I think they're a cool kind of ugly, kind of like A-10s, pugs, and the Seattle Space Needle.

    I'm with Loadmaster: the biggest reason I sold my Glock 19 and bought a Kahr P9 was the fact that the P9 fit my small-ish hand better.

    After taking the cc class this past Saturday.. I'm considering a GLOCK.. I kinda dug the 36 they had in the case. The simplicity of the thing is what I like.. It's like a revolver pretty much.. Load, holster, pull, shoot, holster. No decockers or manual safeties to contend with.. And though the slide looks blocky, it also looks super smooth for holster draw and carry without (with less) snags.

    If I could just find one with the rear of the grip that I didn't just hate.. That whole bump thing at the bottom of the grip I still can't get used to.. I could even overcome the grip "angle" if the rear bump wasn't such a bulge of a thing.. Seems like it'd put the recoil into a patch about 1" diameter in the middle of your palm.

    I guess I really have to shoot them more though to come to a decisive decision. I might find them glorious or something. I'm starting to consider one of some .40 or .45 for carry.. Among the 50 gazillion models of the same gun. SF, single or double stack, etc etc etc.

    And I'm learning to agree... With a handgun, it's all 100% function over form. In a SHTF situation, it's a thing you must pull from a holster or other location, get a sight on target, and get off rounds accurately, as quickly as humanly possible and NOT fire when it's not supposed to.. And be sized accordingly for either carry or the safe beauty pageant. Other than that, looks mean absolutely NOTHING. A perp isn't going to say "Dude don't shoot, man that's a pretty stainless blah blah blah you've got there." hehe
