Pistols are primarily used to fight your way to a long gun. Yet, if a pistol is all you have - .45 - been putting the hurt on bad guys for over 100 yrs. If you only get 1-2 shots, make them count.

If you are serious about noise, you shouldn't own a handgun in the first place. (Yes .40 > 9mm noise wise and it recoils more as well but you won't care about either if you need it.)
At gonzilla, what is it about Glocks that are so bad? They shoot anything I put in them. What makes other models better than Glocks.

Glocks are ugly and not very ergonomic. Other than that they are great guns. Accurate and reliable. I prefer a 1911 trigger to a Glock. My Walther PPQ has a better trigger too IMO.

Welcome to the forum and our perpetual love-hate relationship with Glocks.

Drop by the introductions thread and tell us about yourself.

Fight your way to a long gun? If love to hear what level of training you attained to come to that conclusion.

I pray that I don't have to fire on another person.
