    If Glock were not an option, what would be the next brand pistol you would buy? No model's needed, just brand. Unless you want to post that too.

    I edited the main post. I don't want to step on toes or cause any brand debates.

    an apples to apples would be the SW M&P as well as the SA XDM line with a dash of the Beretta Storm line tossed in. All those would appeal to the same buyer as far as $$, reputation, availability and calibers available. All are polys and you could throw a blanket over all of them as they are all shooting for the same demo.

    A small step up would be FNX line. People go for the FN for the slightly more exotic factor.

    I would not compare Glock to HK in any way.

    Well you could always stock Glock for just the average joes, or people that want defensive guns...then stok HKs for people that want a more upscale firearm. I have never used an HK but I know a lot of people that love them and swear by them.

    No worries. I just misread your post and started thinking down a different tangent and almost responded in a way that wouldn't have not been helpful.

    Carry on good sir.

    It is ok. I edited the main post to clarify my question. Thank you for the consideration. I would still be interested in your opinion though.

    Well, Springfield XD is also a pretty popular brand. S&W stuff as well.

    I like the idea of all poly's. Good idea. I really wanted to carry Colt but they are never in stock.

    FNH is definitely on my list. I would love to own one of those Five-Sevens.

    Agree. I have an FNX 40 and I love it.

    Harder to clean for some reason than Glock. It may be that it is the the SS finish and I'm a stickler for having a clean gun.

    As far as polymers go, I feel HK makes the best.

    Not 2nd best to Glock, but the best. I wouldn't even put Glock 2nd, maybe top 5.
