I'm from western NC, and have fell in love...figuratively speaking....with Glocks! I used to talk bad about them, hated polymer, only wanted my full steel 1911. Well after owning a Kimber 1911, Les Baer 1911, 92A1 Beretta, Sig P229 sas, I'm down to a Glock 19 & 32. I would have kept the rest, but couldn't afford it. I just love the ruggedness, simpleness, reliability of these guns. Not too mention I shoot them better than almost any of my hammer fired pistols. Don't get me wrong, the Les Baer was great...but I don't want a safe queen. I went from fancy and nice, to simple and practical.
