Tangle's post in the Epidemic thread got me to thinking again... and I began to realize how important physical form factor is in a firearm.
By form factor I mean the literal size and shape of the thing. I'm so picky about form factor for a carry gun. For instance I love my 686. Best shootin' gun there ever was. But I don't carry it. Form factor is all wrong.
Yet the GP100 is nearly perfect.
Can't stand the Glock, but the XD is okay.
Isn't it funny how a little thing like a rounded edge or a half inch of grip or barrel or a couple of degrees of grip angle impacts our choices?
