    model 22

    I shoot IDPA with my glock 40. sometimes were rolling on the ground
    and sometimes sitting whatever. So far i've not had a problem.

    I'm not the only one with a GLock.

    For CCW, an unloaded gun, is someone without a gun. A better way
    to put this.... if you ever need it, you'll need it quickly, you will never
    have the time to rack the slide...

    There is another choice you could carry a wheel gun.

    Glocks Are Safe

    I own several Glocks and feel 100% confident that I will not have an accidental discharge. I always respect my weapons and treat them all as if they were loaded.

    This is not to discredit the Kimber. I am actually thinking of getting either a G36 or a Kimber ultracarry II. I know that I would be happy with the G36, but I really want to get the Kimber as I do not own any 1911 style guns.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Not true.

    Glocks are not unsafe. Idiots are.
    Many modern autos don't have a traditional manual safety, not just Glocks. For example, Sig Sauer, the XD line from Springfield, Keltec, some Smiths, and so on.

    If they were unsafe, you can bet your paycheck that the manufacturers would be adding safeties, especially in such a litigation friendly society.

    And as someone else pointed out, there a many many times more Glocks carried out there by LE than Kimbers. So, on average, there would be many many more negligent discharges with Glocks. Nothing unusual about that.

    Not to mention that your Glock is going to go bang no matter what. Thats peace of mind right there. To me, far more peace of mind than some manual safety.

    Oh and also, I feel the need to say that either gun would be an excellent choice for CCW. Base your decision on which gun you like more, not on what the gun shop dealer says.
    One of my Kimbers has been 100% reliable, even with old crappy GI mags. My UCII has been more picky, about 99% until I got some Tripp Cobra mags and is now also 100%.

    Each make and model of weapon has its own peculiarities. Glocks are no different than others that way and neither are 1911's, Kimber or otherwise.

    Get what you like, learn how to use it right, and enjoy.

    I carry a Glock27 almost everyday, IWB, one in the pipe. Never had a problem. The two important things are keeping your finger off the trigger until ready to fire and covering the trigger with a good quality holster. I admit it took some getting used to. The trigger is lite. But it's the simplicity of the Glock that makes it such a good CCW. Both pistols would make a great CCW. It's a matter of personal preference. The Glock is more like a work truck and the Kimber a fine touring car.
