    My Mom took me out to the gun range in Port Richey today to celebrate my 21st birthday so I could shoot some guns to help me decide which one I want to get as my carry weapon once I save up my money.

    I shot the Glock 17, Glock 19, Springfield XD, and Sig P226 (only ones they had that were on my list of guns I'm considering, the entire list is like twenty something different weapons ) So far the Glock 19 is my favorite. It felt really good in my hand.

    Those are some big guns. Physically I mean.

    Be sure to walk around the store with one concealed (if permissible or with exclusive permission of store management first).

    YOu will then see if you really like having to dress around the gun or maybe find another smaller framed model that suits you best.

    Then again I don't know what you look like either, you do, so you know what fits you best obviously.

    Happy belated B'day! I'm glad you had the chance to try a few guns you'd like to buy. I have a G26. It's my primary carry handgun.

    You're lucky you have a Mom who understands the importance of handguns for self defense.

    Again, a belated happy birthday!

    Thanks for the suggestion I'll make sure to do that before making my final decision (won't be for awhile though, )

    Can't beat a G19 for a carry piece. It is the perfect weight and size to carry. Good luck on your choice and you have a cool mom. :)

    Happy Birthday.

    The Glock 19 would make a great EDC choice.
