    I don't have any firsthand experience with Glocks, I'm primarily a 1911 fan. I've considered picking one up from time to time though just for kicks - a Baby Glock in .45ACP or a 20/29 in 10mm. Overall I think they're good quality weapons and it mainly comes down to whether or not the grip profile and trigger pull feel "right" to you.

    I do prefer a manual safety on my autos but Hell, my edc is one of two S&W revolvers so I guess it's not much different.

    True, but most DAOs and revolvers don't go Bang! with a 3/8" reset and easy 3-5# pull. I've carried Glock, GP-100, SP101, S&W's, P7 and 1911's. Glock is the least "Oops!" tolerant.

    I've been carrying my two tone XD religiously, and other than some minor wear on the controls, it has held up just fine. The slide may not be stainless, but the finish they put on it seems to take care of the finish problems others seem to experience with their blued models.

    I don't carry my blue one on my person everyday, but no problems there either.

    After I get the Sig p228, I was going to get a G20 or 29.
    Even though I've never liked the feel of a Glock I figured I'd get used to it for a reasonably priced 10mm.

    But now I've been reading good things about the EAA Witness Elite series 10mm...if they hold true it will push Glock farther down my list.

    Just a nice functional weapon that works as designed! It's not pretty
    but what can you say.I have a glock 17 and it works just fine.It's not
    as nice as my 1911 springfield but I will keep it and carry more often.
    No frills!

    I think you should give a Glock a chance. I have two of them. A G22 (40cal) and a G37 (45GAP). I love shooting both of them. Both are built on the same frame so grabbing either one feels pretty much the same. Both shoot well but I must say the G37 is my favorite pistol of all time, so far I have not had a FTF or FTE in either one to date. Their reliability and durability is legendary. The trigger pull does take some getting used to but that is no big deal. If you have spent any time shooting double action revolvers it is an easy transition. If your unsure weather or not you will like one, just pick up a used one. If you don't like it you will be able to turn it and probably not loss much in the transaction. Good luck with your choice.

    Hands down the most reliable/durable gun made.
