bgutzman, I like this thread and must say, good idea.
As for glocks, I have one and they are good guns, but you are right that there are plenty of other guns that are just as good. I don't love or hate mine, but I think Glock has 2 things really going for it that makes it more attractive to buy than the other "equal" guns. 1) huge aftermarket. If you like to tinker, you have a lot of options. 2) easier to resell quickly
