I have been doing lots of thinking about getting a new EDC. First I was going to splurge and spend some $$$ on a 1911, but I have since decided if I get a new one, it will be a new Glock, specifically either the G19 or G32 with maybe a conversion barrel for practice. Several reasons come to mind that makes this a good decision. First off, I have trained with Glocks, I know them inside and out. Second, Although all firearms require maint, Glocks seem to be able to tolerate the abuse and if I dont clean it after a day of shooting, it wont hate me. Third, the price. I can get a decent holster for one and still not spend as much as I would on a 1911. I already have a Fobus OWB holster for the G19, if I can still get the 3rd Generation.
All in all, I think it will be a good choice. It will be a month or so before I am able, but I hope to have it before October.
