So... I'm deciding to carry a Glock 19... What's that got to do with the price of rice and why should you care? Eh. I don't know. I just thought I would share that my USPc 9mm is probably going to go in the safe (or might be traded for a P30) and I'm going to carry a Glock. I have been practicing and practicing shooting DA/SA and yes I am good with my USPc but I can be just as proffecient* with a Glock as my USPc and I can do it in less time. I posted a thread on here a while back about how I was nervous with carrying a striker fire gun, but my irrational fear of guns just firing rounds without the trigger being pulled is gone.
I chose to carry a Glock over my HK (or any other handgun) for a few reasons. I can put more rounds on target faster with a Glock then I can with a DA/SA. Glock's low bore axis and built feels good in my hand when I'm shooting, I can mitigate the Glock recoil better than I can my HK. I like the option of having some type of laser system that I can conviently* attach the rail and fit into a holster. This is not a HK or DA/SA bashing, it's just that for me the Glock edges out my USPc when it comes to how I perform with both guns. I'll always keep atleast one HK, and it probably will be the one I already have.
Now with my backstory and reasons explained why I'm switching my carry gun to a Glock all I have to do is go get one. Here's what I would like.
-Glock 19 Gen 4... Are the Gen 4's okay to buy now? Is the spring issue fixed? What should I look for when buying used Glocks or should I be ok to go buying new?
-A versatile Kydex carrying system. One that I can wear @ 2 o clock IWB and wear @ 3,4,5 o clock OWB
-Few extra mag's (that goes without saying)
-Laser device. Can anyone recommend* a laser device? I don't like the look of the Crimson Trace grip laser on the Glocks, the M&P Crimson Trace looks sexier.
Thanks for any advice and if there is anyone reading that would like to share their experience carrying a Glock please do.
