Default Time for a new one

Well, I have decided to get another pistol. I currently own a Glock 30 and love it. Glad I went with a .45, they can do some damage that's for sure. but due to me having an obsession with shooting, .45 rounds are getting a little pricey to shoot regularly, so I want to get a 9mm. Budget is about 500 bucks.

Any Suggestions?

I know your question is about 9mm, and I'm a Glock 19 owner and fan, but that new Springfield Arms XDm .45 is pretty tempting. If you stay in the Glock family, though, you'd be immediately familiar with the system.

I'm assuming you're asking about larger-size, right, and not into the pocket 9 range? That would be a totally different question.

Yeah I looked at the XDm, but I really want to stay with the Glock family after I think about it. Looks like the Glock 17 in OD GREEN is the only choice here

Do yourself a favor and look at a S&W Sigma. Like the Glock only better.

I ordered the 19 in OD Green. Do you guys think it will be a 4th gen?

Yeah, I am going to go ahead and sort of disagree with you.

You surely should have known what you were getting BEFORE you got it.

I'm not a glock guy, but I hope you like it.
