I never liked Glocks because I held the belief that I needed an external thumb safety/hammer drop like my Beretta 92FS has. I finally broke down and bought a Glock 17 Gen4 with night sites however, and absolutely love it. Can't believe I waited this long to get on board the Glock train. It isn't as "pretty" as the H&K, Sig, FN, or Beretta - but I love the simplicity and quality. This is a great gun!
