Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

A very good reason they work and keep working. Simple to use . Pull and shoot.The finish does not rust.

LOL, I own more than one Springfield XD and my better half can't spot the difference either. She hasn't caught on to the fact that it's more than one pistol, so I don't have to hear any complaints either.

That is so true. I own a couple of XD's and my last one I was like "what are you talking about, it's the same one I've always had". The purchase of my next 1911 will be done the same way. Although I plan on purchasing the EMP which is bi-tone, and my current one is all stainless. Mmmm...how could I pull that one off?

Price is reasonable...light...easy to conceal (G-36)...EASY to clean (no paper clips like my Kimber) actually, I can take it apart behind my back, try that with a Kimber!...always throws lead...

Best thing about a Glock. Try over 750,000 rounds through one personally owned pistol (Chuck Taylor of ASAA) with out a hickup. Now tell me of ANY other weapon made by anybody that can or has done that. I love my 1911 but if its gotta go bang and bang forever go Glock.

I like Glocks but let's be real...
I strongly disagree. This may mislead a newbie or someone to believe that semi-auto handguns never fail. Go with a revolver, if it has "gotta go bang and bang forever". They are more reliable than the semi-autos I have seen, and yes, more reliable than Glock, in most people's daily lives (i.e. not throwing in mud or out of a plane).

In fact, here is an instance when someone's Glock didn't do it's job, which is fire when the trigger is pulled.
Glock's aren't the end all, be all, people think they are. They are good guns, though. My S&W M&P is a good gun. Good guns malfunction, though, and are just as subject to error as anything else. Bullets could be the issue, too. A great revolver overcomes this.
I love my M&P, but at night next to me is a .357 mag SS revolver. In the middle of night, who would have time to clearly think about anything like clearing a jam? When your Glock doesn't fire in a home invasion, I just have to keep pulling the trigger.
Three of the best things about Glock are the amount of aftermarket parts/support, the simplicity, and the ability to buy one gun and use it for multiple platforms (9mm, .40, etc.).
This in no way is an insult, but I wouldn't want a newbie to go buy a Glock thinking that it will "go bang and go bang forever" no matter what the circumstance.
By the way for all those newbies, Glock's tennifer finish is not as hard as my M&P's and Glocks can't shoot lead out of the box.
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of the ultimate CC gun!

They work, they come out of box ugly, you carry/shoot it for years and years and its still as ugly as the day it was new. Try that with 1911. They start out pretty, and end up ugly.
Glocks are like a junk yard dog, the more they get beat up, the more they look like they are supposed to.
*** disclaimer*** I love both my Glocks and my 1911's, please do not try to convince me of which one is better. The answer is; It just depends.

I own more Glocks then any other name brand. I enjoy all my guns but I always go for a Glock to carry. The three I own always go bang unconditionaly. Yes they are ugly, yes they are in-expensive and yes you can drag them through the sand, drench them in salt water and let them dry in the sun and they will still go bang without a cleaning.
Please do not knock them until you tried them. So many people shoot a Glock once don't like them and talk bad about them. I was one of them a year ago. I could not stand my friends Glock. It did not feel right, it was ugly. I had my Kimber 1911 and thought what could be better then this. Just out of fairness I bought my first G23 and gave it a fair chance. Now my 1911's sit in the safe and my G,23,19 or 27 are in my holster. I am not saying they are better then a 1911 but for me they carry better because they are flatter and smoother then a 1911, they do not collect lint like a 1911 does, You do not have to clean them every couple hundred rounds, I do but you don't have to and they go bang every time. As far as the external safety thing goes well, I was trained to keep the finger off the trigger I know a lot of people say accidents happen and they do but they happen with safeties also. It is all in the training.
My 2 cents.
Happy Holidays everybody.
