    GLOCK

    Being in the military, we use the Beretta M9 and I have ran into too many where the external safety did not work. Now, I realize that the shooters before me probably did not take care of their M9 as they should have. Got it. But I can only go on my experience and my experience says the Beretta safety breaks often. I have owned Glocks (19, 21SF, 26, 32, 36) since 1998 and not a single one has ever broken in any way. I do baby them, as I do all my weapons....so....take it for what it's worth. I will say the weight of the Beretta in 9mm dampens the recoil to almost nothing. Big plus.

    Both are quality handguns. So which ever one floats your boat is the right answer.

    First thing first welcome to the forum.

    While sometimes the search feature can be recommended in a bit of a snarky tone, it really works well. This forum has been around for a while and is populated by some very experienced people so chances are if you have firearm questions, someone's probably already asked them.

    Have you gone and read some of the defensive carry guns discussions? There is wealth of info there and feel free to ask specific questions about firearms posted on.

    From the sound of the threads you have started, you're relatively new to the firearms world. Again, welcome, and remember everyone gets a chance to be new to something. Do you have any friends or family that are gun folks and can let you shoot different firearms? If not, the easiest thing to do would be go to a range, spend some time talking to the people behind the counter and rent some different makes, models, and calibers. Some formal instruction is also a REALLY good idea.

    In the mean time read through some discussions and generally you can get an idea on what would be a good first defensive/carry pistol. I would suggest read up on the s&w m&p (stands for military & police), glock, snubbies in general, kahr, Walther, and sig sauer off the top of my head.

    Search with these as key words and as you come up with specific questions about these post and your answers will certainly be answered, and that post counter goes up.

    IMO......the Italians do two things good without compromise.......that would be pasta and wine. Take that as you will. Which is better? Depends on what your doctor recommends I reckon.

    Clearly Beretta makes a better carbine, shotgun, and small single stack pistol. :)

    Quality is the same for both. Beretta has an edge on technology and design innovation. I just wish it had a striker fired version. I like them both, and I own both.

    I will always love the Glock. That being said, I had a chance to shoot my buddy's Beretta 92 last fall, and I was very impressed with it. Great ergos, very accurate. A real sweetheart.

    I used to carry a Beretta 92F for law enforcement duty. I kept it cleaned and well maintained, but started to have a lot of malfunctions. One weakness I found in the Beretta was the magazines. There are some mags that are slightly better than others. The crimp on the floorplate is just a bad design IMO. I actually had to position a piece of carpeting in front of me, on the recruit academy range (as per the range instructor). The carpet was to drop the mags on to keep them from getting damaged and coming apart. I did not use the carpet one day, and yes my dropped mag flew apart when I dropped it on the concrete! I switched to a Glock 23 and like it so much better. It is lighter and the shape and design allow for a more accurate shooting grip. I am much more accurate with the Glock.

    I'm a Beretta guy, so I'm biased. We have Glock 17s available to carry at work, but I choose to carry one of my personal Berettas. It is usually an M9 frame with a 96D Centurion upper.

    If you like the Glocks, then consider taking a look at the PX4 Type C ;)
