    They are certainly homely, but pretty is as pretty does and they do flat out work.

    I like that they are pretty much totally built around function with style being a non-issue for the design. It's a chunky brick of black plastic that goes BANG when you need it to.

    Still, not my cup of tea. I think that pretty much everyone else making poly guns makes a better looking one. M&P, SIG, FNH, H&K, etc are all more handsome. I will say that I probably prefer the looks of the Glocks over the Ruger SR series. I just don't find them an attractive pistol at all.

    #7. And I do look at aesthetics, but it's not my top priority in any firearm.

    Yes! Uglier than a mud fence dubbed with rusty lizards!

    ... but my oh my, do they serve and serve well.

    My two?

    They might not be beauty queens, but I wouldn't be without 'em.

    Yes, Glock ain't pretty

    I like them but think they are ugly. I like the the OD green ones the best and still think they are ugly.

    The best holster I've found for them are even ugly.

    The black ones are even uglier. I try to find ways to improve the looks but nothing seems to work.

    The glock is like a hammer, and like a Hammer I do not purchase it based on whether or not it is aesthetically pleasing.

    Form follows function, but jeeze

    I appreciate the simplicity, but could the slide have a nicer shape? Spend a buck more on milling you cheap bastages!

    Ugly as a caliche rock or alkalie dirt. I don't care about how tough, dependable, or accurate they are, they don't fit my hand so no glocks in my arsenal.

    Boy you must be fun at parties hey?

    "Here's your drink buddy!"

    "What's this? A plastic party cup? Get this junk out of my face and get me a PINT GLASS NOW!".....as you throw it across the room........

    Just kidding! I understand your feelings, and prefer steel guns myself. The imagery just made me laugh.

    I do actually find some poly guns to pretty decent looking in a Buck Rodgers sort of way.

    Thanks for all the input guys! I've really enjoyed seeing what people think about the Glock's looks.

    I find it really interesting how to quite a few people (myself included) it seems that the reliability of Glock seems to directly influence how they perceive it aesthetically. Perhaps I should have added an option, "It's kind of grown on me."

    So,
    51% of the community finds them ugly to one degree or another.
    22% of the community doesn't find them good or bad looking, and
    27% of the community likes the way they look to one degree or another.

    Now,:rolleyes: should we run a poll comparing the looks of various polymer handgun models (i.e. Glock, XD(s,m), M&P's, PPX, CZ's, etc..)?

    Hmmm....

    Little blocky but well proportioned and they look like a gun not a power tool.

    I'll take a Glock over some nickel plated sissy pistol anyday.
