Well, I find myself torn in a decision for a carry gun/office/home gun. I have a nice little Comped Taurus 605 .357 at home as well as a Remington 870 Police Magnum at home already. However, I am in need of something to carry to and fro the office. I prefer semi autos and love Glocks. Have had the 17 and 22 versions.
Bit of background on me: I am experienced with Firearms. Was a security guard. Was a cop after that. Worked in LE for around 3.5 years ended that in Patrol. (Miss that BTW) Retired early and ended up going to law school. Have an office Downtown now and many clients in and out. Five lawyers in my group there.
Here is the one thing that has changed my approach to handguns. I have a 4 1/2 year old child.
I do love Glocks, in fact the 17 was what I carried as a duty weapon and the 19 are like an extension of my hand. Like Buttah! I always say. Used to shoot a 98/99 with my 17. (That was one of the 1st gen that is still in use today with my father. Was handed down then back up as a duty weapon)
I am leaning toward the G19. However, I would like to know what security measures I should consider that would also allow for easy access at home. Should I consider a gun with more safety features? Or is that just something to get in the way?
Next, what is the best storage method? I hate trigger locks. Like safes but only have room for a small one. Drawer safe? Does that allow for expeditious access though?
Decisions, decisions. Any input here? Sorry, typed all that in around 10 seconds.
