first off, thanks everyone for all the advice, its exactly what i was looking for. this is the gun im going to be trusting my life with for the next 4+ years, so id rather have too much info than not enough any day.Squawker said:I have 2 Glocks, a 19 and a 26. Since Vegas summers are hou, the 26 has become my carry gun, as it will fit in my front pocket. Glocks are good guns, and I consider then to be fun to shoot. Another choice to consider, especially due to your hand size, is the Springfield Armory XD line. You can get 9mm,40, or 45 ACP. I bought the 45 a few weeks ago, and I've fallen in love. It's a polymer gun, has a similar trigger safety to the Glock, plus a grip safety. And the 45 gives you 13+1 capacity. So, after reading all of these suggestions, you're probably totally confused. That will teach you to ask us for advice! :urla9ub:
I agree. Especially the pull trigger /take down. seems like a disaster in the making. glock makes a reliable gun, but it isn't right for everyone.Doc Holliday said:How experienced are you with firearms? If you are a novice, I wouldn't suggest the Glock. Your mind and your trigger finger are your safety and Glocks can be unforgiving. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying experienced shooters and other types of pistols are not prone to negligent discharge. Just my .02 and something to think about.
