Is there anything else like this?
I'm curious oh ye knowers of all things that fire small pieces of metal at ridiculous velocities.
Is there in fact anything similar to this very interesting Glock model I'm sure you've all heard of?
What intrigues me about this model is that it's chambered in a large bore caliber, has single stack magazine thinness, doesn't have an external safety, and it has a nearly 4 inch barrel and is small but it's a size step up from my J Frame.
What kills it for me is that it's a Glock, and that means it feels like a Glock, it has Glock grips, and it is probably a Glock brick in the hand. I do not question the reliability, materials, or functionality of Glock pistols but overall they just don't work for me. Even at that I think the 19 is okay, but I can think of similar pistols I'd rather have.
Does someone else make something that meets similar criteria, or is Glock being unique here? The closest I can think of is the PT-145, whose thickness I could live with, but it has an external safety.
