Sounds like you made your mind up before you started this thread, That's fine, but don't buy a gun solely on rather its ugly or not.. I buy my weapons based on dependability, feel, and cost first. The new Glocks have changed their brick like grip to fit better for more people. And the old theory that I want a 9mm because the ammo is cheaper..BS, all about the same (target Ammo). don't limit yourself on cal. either. That said I don't get to carry my (first) Glock-23 anymore, My Wife loves it, shoots it very well, and fits her.. I even bought her a Sig. P-232, in .380 and she told me to carry it..lol..I ended up buying myself a Sig. 1911, ultra compact, .45.. Just make sure you try and find the best gun for you..Good Luck.
