IMO people just get tired of the look. i owned a G20, 10mm back in 98 and kept it for a few years then got rid of it. got the XD and said i would never get another glock. then i got a great deal on the G30SF .45 last month and love it again. they are kinda like a 10/22, mods out the butt that you can do realitively cheap. just make sure to keep your finger off the bang stick and everything out of the way when re-holstering, especially if you use and i don't recommend a thumb break and don't try to catch it if you drop it, just let it hit the deck. it won't go off but if you try to catch it your finger may hit the trigger...just happened over on glocktalk to a guy, so practice normal gun safety and it is a great weapon, too many PD's and people have them to prove otherwise. hell some people just through them in the diswasher to clean after the range...i've seen it. have fun, be safe.
