    I've decided which gun in carrying from now on.

    I went to the range today and shot a couple of my pistols. 1911, keltec p3at, and my Glock 19. I was testing my keltecs new grip extensions and they work well but i find if I hold it like i did before the magazines pads where added the magazines get knocked out of battery. So i have to hold it a bit looser but it still gives me a good controllable grip now. Its going to be a backup and slip in my pocket gun. I shot my 191l and it shoots good just like every one I've owned.

    The pistol I keep getting the best results from is my glock 19. even though I have alot of excellent pistols and shoot them well I shoot the Glock much better. When I point the weapon at the target the sights tend to be lined up before I look at them. I can shoot rapidly and at 21 feet it puts every round in the head of the target or in a small pattern in the chest, whichever I shoot at.

    So I've pretty much decided that I'm going to carry my glock from now on since I should carry what I'm best with. As much as I like all my other pistols I think its best to use it instead. the rest of my guns will be for fun and maybe occasional carry.

    It's sort of relaxing to realize which weapon I can rely on to shoot the straightest. It also makes deciding "which weapon I'm going to carry today" much easier.

    The Glock 19 was my EDC gun. That is until my wife got used to CCing. Then she repoed it. She started with a Kel-Tec P-3AT and as soon as she got over the paranoia that "everyone knows I have a gun on me" she tried the 19 in a bellyband and I haven't gotten it back since. That's ok, I now carry my Sig P228 which I love just as much (maybe more). It's a bit heavier though. Congrats on finding exactly what works for you. It's a process. I think we've finally got if figured out now as well.
