    I don't know of anyone that has ever said Gaston designed the Glocks to be a "purty gun".

    1911 or a G30, you can't go wrong with either one.

    The weight really isn't that bad if you have a good holster & belt. I'm 6'1", 200lb and I can carry my full size Springfield Loaded all day. I was considering a shoulder holster though so it's easier to carry in the car.

    I recently just started not liking glocks so much. I've had my mits on Springfield 1911's and XD .40's and .45's and am just in love with both. I'm turning into a springfield nut.

    Haha I am going through the reverse right now. I am trying to justify purchasing another Glock without completely turning into a fanboy.

    Yes I've shot just about every model and size except for the 9MM models as I know no one who carries a 9MM. :D
    I love the G23 and G30 and G21 there good guns when broken in but for right out of the box I like 1911A1's and XD45's.

    Haha I'm trying to justify buying a semi auto pistol in general. I grew up on a ranch and have carried a .45 Colt revolver and .357 mag daily. It's hard steering away from the good ol classics. But 6 rounds isn't appealing anymore when I can have 11 plus multiple mags that are easier to reload. lol For coyotes a revolver is fine. lol

    There is a difference between being pretty and elegance in simplicity.

    Well everyone should have a 1911 so that gives you a reason right there.
    Then if your going to have a 1911 you might as well get a plastic fantastic because that's our generations go to gun.
    And if your going to get both a 1911 and a Glock/XD/M&P or variant then you need to mix up the calibers a bit so you don't get board.

    That should give you ample excuses for at least 3 guns right here :D
