I have to admit I'm not a glock fan myself, I'll admit though, they've probably come a long way since they made their initial extremely bad impression on me. I live in a small town, and many years ago, when the glock first came out, a local officer owned 2 first factory run, first gen glocks. He was our local glock fanatic "The Glock is the finest gun ever created" Then I met him out at the range one day. human shaped qualification target, 25 yards, benchrest, sandbags, slow fire. Full clip, he winged it twice in the left arm. Second glock, hit it three times, once near shoulder, once near ribs, and once near waist, all on etreme left edge of target. He also had a smith 9mm with him, and shot well with it so it wasn't the shooter. I'm sure that they have improved since then, but, first impressions still linger.
Then too, I still instinctively feel a gun should be made of metal. :-) not plastic, see sig line for why. LOL
A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)
If you want a revolver, you could consider the Ruger LCR in .38 or .357....still only 5 rounds, but very light. Good luck. Mark
