I'm assuming you're referring to the person that posted the pics when you refer to trolling. He posted the same pic on the other threads at least.

There are a lot of fanboys that love Glocks and an equal number ( often1911 fanboys) that hate them.

I own one Glock 27. It's a nice compact carry gun 2000 rounds never a single ftf. Easy to clean, ugly to look at.

As far as the cop on YouTube: no safety can compensate for stupidity.

Not a giant glock fan, but his post was directly pertaining to your post. He was casting his vote for glock compacts.

I would like to think everybody has at least one "go to" firearm that they can rely on. I have a Colt Officers that just shoots unbelievably straight. I met a guy at the range who had several high end pistols but when beer was on the line, his go to was a baby Glock .40 cal. He let me shoot it and for such a short sight radius, it was remarkable.

I hope everyone has at least one gun that shoots straight - whatever brand.

I've got two M&P's full size and compact, both 9mm. The compact's lighter, easier to conceal. The full size handles better, larger grip, better 2nd shot recovery. At real world pistol fight distances, (point blank to 20 feet), both group pretty much identically. I'm comfortable/confident carrying either one.

IMO, the basic question boils down to two things:

1.-If you can sustain comfort with a full size as an EDC.

2.-If you plan to shoot your EDC at range distances, or for

plinking.



Personal resolution of these issues will point to whether you'd

be more comfortable with a compact for EDC.

When it's my turn at bat, I want to go in swinging with

full-size wood...

YMMV
