As a female with a somewhat smaller hand size, I find the ergonomics & balance of the Glocks just don't feel right in my hands....and are just a little too thick to wrap my fingers around the edge of the grip. Berettas are impossible for me. I know I can safely fire them, but I wouldn't care to own one. Sigs and Rugers seem to fit my hands the best and I shoot exceptionally well with my P226 Sig and Ruger SR9c. I have used Glocks, S&W's, Springfields, and Berettas...all very fine pistols...but I just don't care for the balance and grip of any of them. Pistols, like shoes, need to fit the person using them.
