I think Glocks are ugly. But I have six of them. lol 1911s are beautiful and I have one.
Reminds me of the song, "I you want to be happy the rest of your life, make an ugly woman your wife" lol Maybe it should be: if you want a gun to save your life, make an ugly gun your choice. (couldn't think of something that rhymed lol)
Personally I love the Glock because of its simplicity and reliability, not for looks. I recently was reading a book and found a great way to describe my feelings towards how the Glock looks, in the book it is describing a sword but in my opinion it can be applied to any weapon.. "A weapon is a tool, and if it is beautiful, then it is beautiful because it is useful. A sword that does not fulfill its function would be ugly in my eyes no matter how fair it's shape, not even if it were adorned with the finest jewels and the most intricate engravings."
I have read many times that Glocks are ugly, have no soul, and there is no pride of owning one. Totally disagree with all of that. I have always liked the all business looks of a Glock pistol. I find pride in owning one of the most innovative and technologically advanced pistols in history. Bill
There was a time were I thought the same about Glocks. Then I became part of this forum and the more I read and learn about this gun, the more interest I got. Now I'm addicted to Glocks I find them beautiful and unique. I have to take easy before I own every single one of their models and my wife kick me out of the house!
I'm new to Glocks but I didn't give much thought to looks when I bought mine a month ago. I wanted a gun that was as dependable as my Remington 700 bolt action rifle and as tough as my Remington 870 pump shotgun. I can honestly say, my G17 Gen 4 is everything I have ever wanted in a handgun and more. And I bought it under Glocks blue label program so I could have spent twice the money and not got anything close to the quality of a Glock. In my opinion, the fact that it's the most dependable, well built handgun ever made makes it a thing of beauty.
I don't think any bad guy that has any gun pulled on them thinks wow that is ugly or pretty. I think it is more like I hope he doesn't pull the trigger. That being said I love the way my 23 looks. I love the way it shoots even more.
