    Thumbs up How to make a Glock better looking

    Buy one! It's kind of like an ugly dog, if you own it, it's not so bad looking after all.
    After I picked up my 27, it's sort of growing on me. I think it has alot to do with it's functionality. It works for what it was made for, period.
    It impresses me that there's a 10 shot .40 in such a small package. Does my S&W 19 look better? Much more so! 5" Colt Govt., yes. Beretta 96?, yes. Can I ccw them as easy? No, not even.
    If it operates as well as I've heard, I think I'm going to be happy!

    I have a 27 now and a 26 on the way. I'll be honest: I think they're sexy as hell. I don't get the ugly comments at all. Much better looking than a Sig, especially that ridiculous-looking Mosquito. Ruger LCP is nice looking, too. But I don't like the look of a 1911, either, so I know I'm in the minority.

    I agree, I love the looks of the Glocks. Plus they always go bang.

    I remember when the Glock first came out. It got bad press back then. Folks were saying people would be sneeking them past metal detectors at airports. I think us older guys that grew up with revolvers and 1911s still believe that is the way guns should look. I don't find anything pretty about a Glock. They work. They make a gun to suit about any need. The price is right. I have two Glocks and will likely get another. I don't particularly like the way a Glock looks. They do have some features that I don't like. I guess I will just have to say they are pretty on the inside.

    Stevew, I'm still learning the Glock..what is it you don't like about them? So far with me it's the plastic sights, afraid if dropped there goes a sight! Maybe not though, because I have'nt heard of that happening yet. Has anyone?

    Now, let's just slow down here! While I appreciate my GLOCKs as much as the next guy, I can not say that I think they are at all attractive in appearance. Attractive in function, yes. Appearance, no.

    The only way I have found to make a GLOCK pretty is to put it in some nice leather!

    Glad you like yours though!

    I saw an extreme "melt" job done to a first-generation Glock 19, once. There was something about the softening of the lines and curves that made it more visually attractive to me. It'll never be the classic 1911 or curvaceous Hi-Power look, no matter how much is melted or reshaped, but it made quite a difference.

    Short of that, I don't know what a person could do to change the look of a Glock.

    Still, as some folks have pointed out, there is something really attractive about always going "bang." Yup.

    If I ever buy a used Glock I may send it here.

    For me personally, I don't really care what a new auto looks like. I want it to function properly, conceal well and work when I need it. That's why I love my Glock.

    If I was looking for sexy in a gun, I would go with an old Colt .45. There's something about those lines and I guess the nostalgia of it that gets my blood going.

    I've always thought Glocks looked cool. Of course, the fact that I grew up playing video games and they often used Glocks is probably a huge influence on that.

    I could care less what my Glock looks like. It works, period.
    Glocks are not what I would consider to be "display guns."

    I have NEVER had a misfeed with my G21 and hope it stays that way.
    It works with all types of ammo and has been a good gun for me as far as accuracy goes.

    Not sure what you're looking for, but the Glock is a blocky, bulky, black gun that works when needed.
