By chambering them in 9mm only would be a start.

Well, let's be fair here. The popular brands have alot of these options. Beretta 92- ext mag release, 'D'spring, metal guide rod, numorous grip options. And even more so with 1911's.

Yea. I guess your right. Glocks are not to bad tho. The grip sucks and its ugly as heck. There are a few things that could make it better. And I'm sure you cans find something on every gun that could be better. Other than the 1911 of corse. I chose XD over glock bc it fits me better it is a very good gun. And it's not ugly. I do plan to buy a g22 tho. Only bc the Leo in my area use them and it is easy to convert to 9mm,357sig,.22lr. Just a better choice for shtf. If it was not for that I would most likely never own a glock. Just my op.

You should probably look closer) The Glock feeling like a 2x4 and the Sig feeling great. So I almost bought the Sig, until I shot a friends Glock with a grip reduction. It felt great. At that point the Glock became the better choice in my opinion. That's just my opinion, others will be different, but a Glock with a grip reduction is the gun for me.
So...if you change it enough that it stops feeling like a Glock, then it becomes usable for you? You should have probably bought the Sig 2 years ago.
