    OK, I'm gonna hafta confess, the only pistol that is currently in my house is a GLOCK :D

    I love it. I shot a Kimber, S&W, and a few others before decideing the Glock just worked with me better.

    Now my wife on the other hand, she shoots a Springfield XD-9 better than a glock, so guess what's on her Christmas list :D b::

    I guess that makes 3 votes for Glock?

    Captain Boogie, fine with your Glock.

    But there's not a Glock built that will fit my hand properly and not feel top heavy or cumbersome to shoot.

    And if I don't feel comfortable shooting it...then how the heck am I going to protect myself?

    I'm more comfortable with a S&W .357 magnum from the 70's than I am with a Glock. At least I can handle that. Same with the Beretta 92F - it feels like a gun and it's balanced. The Glock is not balanced to my hand...and in the end that's what matters. Nor can I get my hand around it. The grip doesn't work for me.

    When they build a Glock for a woman (yes I've heard that a lot of women like them - this particular gal - as in me - does not)...then I'll consider one. Until then...well whatever floats your boat is fine. I'll take my 1911's (or my Beretta 92F).

    Must admit, not a Glock fan either. They are nice guns, but like someone said earlier, they don't fit my hand well. The radical grip angle I also don't like, as everytime I drew one the muzzle would be pointing up in the air. I'll sitck with my Sigs all the way!!!
