    Great choice, if you're going to have only one (at least, to begin with). Hard to go wrong with it, so long as its ergonomics work well with you and you can be accurate with it. Hard to argue with a "classic."

    Hope to ... be able to contribute one day.
    Hey, jump right in! Remember that the only silly question is the one not asked. Questions, observations, musings, experiences ... it's all good. There are lots of aspects worth considering, learning about. Including the nature of ownership and defensive use/carry in other places that many folks might not be aware of.

    Welcome from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA!

    Does your right to own a firearm license allow you to carry concealed or even open? I hope you get yours soon.

    The Glock 19 is a nice gun as are most Glocks. I'm partial to the G 23 .40 cal myself.

    Welcome from Wisconsin> the other side of the world.
    Many years ago I dated a girl from South Africa. I learned some of your language but have since forgot. Do you still eat with the fork turned upside down?
