    To me Glocks are nice. But im not much of a fan. They just look too plain. They all look the same except for the caliber and barrel length. They do feel nice. I approve of the reliability. But when sveryone and their mother is getting one, why get one?

    The story Red just said is a prime example. Who shows up with 6 of the same kind of a gun to a GUN RANGE. I can see if your going to your friends house or somethin to show them off. But a case with 6? Hes just trying to show off how much of a diehard fan of them he is.

    Me? I like ths ones hardly anyone really gets. SD40VE. EAA Witness. Bersa. P99. Not many people get them. But enogh to get good and unbiased reviews on them. Plus all the gun above are $450 or below. Every glock ive come across is $500+. Its like im buying a plain white t-shirt for $50 and all it has is the name brand tag on it. But the same one thats $15 at walmart is more stain resistant.

    Why do you care so much what the gun looks like? When gun shopping, i shop for reliability, quality manufacturing, and ergonomics (also what the gun is to be used for - home defense, CC, etc.) Not saying im Glock fanboy, but I'm also not saying I wouldn't own one (and I dont). When it comes to firearms, the saying you pay for what you get its extremely true, I cringe at the idea of someone buying a cheap gun and thinking its comparable to handgun thats in the higher price range (also not trying to state Glock are in a high prices range, theyre rather moderate)... MFW being a hater on em because of the way the looks :lawl:

    For me, a firearm has to have the whole package. If it looks good but everything else about it sucks of course I wouldn't buy it, I'm not a collector. But if I don't think a gun looks "cool", I just won't buy it haha. Guess that's the curse of being a designer for a living. :lawl:

    I'm guilty of this I must admit.... I chose my Springfield XDs over a Glock 36 because of the prettier sights. The "cool" checkering on the grip (which I have found to be pretty functional, and better than the G36 grip, after all). And because it was smaller.

    The way I see it, It's only my first gun and I can tell that by the end of this year I'll have at least 2 or 3 more. My top 5 in my wanted list include.....

    - Walther P99C A/S in 9mm (Super rare, at least from my experience)
    - CZ P-07 Duty in 9mm (Great, reliable, combat pistol with a threaded barrel for only $450)
    - Glock 30SF (Want a bigger .45 ACP for the Winter. I need the XDs for the summer here because it gets HOT, and I cant fit a lot of .45 ACP's under a thin T-shirt in my waistband.
    - Either a Colt LE6920 or a Stag Arms Model 1/2. (AR-15, gotta have one. Plain and simple)
    - Ruger 10/22 (Gotta have a .22LR rifle. No gun collection is complete without one)

    Honorable mentions

    - Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum
    - Winchester 1894 in .30-30

    i'll have to wait to get a good picture of my H&R 12 gauge, Ruger 10-22, and Savage 22 :lawl:. I wish NY wasnt connected to NYC so I could get a pistol and not wait 6 months for a permit

    apply for it now so you don't have to wait any longer, and you'll be able to get one early next year haha. nj says it should be about 30 days, but it always takes longer. my friend had a 4 month wait the beginning of this year. they're not supposed to take that long though, and he's had plenty before that one. mine took about two months, not too bad.

    my friend got his last year at apparently the exact right time, only took like a month. the only thing really holding me back is a passport photo :lawl:. but then itll take a few years to get my concealed carry, since NY doesnt have open carry

    I'm grateful that Indiana has lifetime licenses to carry for 125 dollars. I'll have to find a picture of my daily carry
