Get the M9, life is too short to shoot an ungly gun.
Not necessarily true. Life is short, and if you must shoot, you could do much worse than shooting a Glock. At least you will be shooting, and not trying to figure out why your gun doesnt work. If there is one thing a Glock excells at, its plain old shooting. Ugly to some, maybe, and I also appreciate a fine looking gun, but I also think Glock makes one of the highest performing guns on the market. I have owned 4 Glocks and never onnce had the desire to get an M9, or any Beretta. I still dont, and I have semi's from quite a few manufacturers.
