Going to take a ride to the local gun dealer this week and look at a Glock 19. They have one in stock and a range gun I can shoot. They usually have free ammo you can run through, 5 rounds I think or you can shoot as much ammo as you buy. I was looking at other offering to get a pistol that was thinner but I will have to see how this feels in my hands and in carry situation. $510 seems reasonable for a reliable firearm. I was also looking at the G26 but I would have to put a pinky rest on the clip and I think the technical data showed the pistol slide is only about .5 inches less than the G19. The only other polymer I have been looking at is the Springfield Armory XDM-9. It felt better in my hand when I looket at it before. But I will have to reserve judgment until I shoot them.
