    If you made that Gamma black and plastic you may have a point, but I'll take a Browning with Citori steel over a Glock any day, and twice on Sunday.

    It's been asked and answered, but:
    They work
    reliable
    easy to maintain
    small number of parts
    no hand fitting of parts
    stand up to abuse
    accurate (I can hit milpark targets at 100 yds - consistently, so don't even start)
    high capacity
    easy to obtain and install parts
    can modify grip to personal tastes
    enormous amt of aftermarket support/parts
    doesn't rust - at least not easily

    What is it, I'd rather be shot with a Glock than pistol whipped by a 1911?
    Or is that the other way around?

    Glocks are the Model 10 of the 21st Century. They are easy to use, easy to maintain. If you lose one, it's generally cheaper than it's major rival.
    They are innovative and iconic handguns. Rap songs are made about them . They work, they have plenty of tweakers who love to fool with them. The Glock fans swear by them .

    Damn, almost sounds,with a couple of minor exceptions, like us 1911 fanboys, doesn't it?

    the car is an Chevy Aveo T 250 which is a re badged DeaWoo Gentra and Gamma X bikes are made in China.

    ???????????? Chinese bike maker link

    https://www.google.com/search?q=aveo...w=1093&bih=522 Aveo T250 image

    snip Wikipedia

    Designed, engineered and originally marketed by GM Daewoo, the Aveo superseded the Daewoo Lanos and was marketed worldwide in 120 countries under five brands (Chevrolet, Daewoo, Holden, Pontiac, and Suzuki).[3] In its home market of South Korea, the T200 was known as Daewoo Kalos, before being rebranded Daewoo Gentra. In several Asian, Australasian, and European export markets, the "Daewoo Kalos" name was also used, only to be later renamed "Chevrolet Aveo" or Holden Barina in the case of Australasia. Other names used include Chevrolet Lova in China and Pontiac G3 in the United States, selling alongside the "Chevrolet Aveo" version. In Canada, the name Pontiac Wave was originally used, followed by Pontiac G3 Wave, before adopting the "Pontiac G3" name used in the United States. Since 2003, Suzuki has also sold a version in Canada as the Suzuki Swift+ alongside the Chevrolet and Pontiac badged versions. T200's successor, the T300 was released in 2011. The Swift+ was dropped after the 2011 model year due to poor sales along with the entire Suzuki brand, although Suzuki Canada lists 2010 as the final model year Swift+.
