I carry a G22 every day and my dad has carried a 17, 22 or 27 everyday for 20+ years - never with any issues. I have seen more misfires or accidental discharges on "hammer" guns than on any striker fired weapon and I have been around guns a long time.

So in my opinion start with the Glock. You will get addicted and will want to add to your collection you can always get the Kimber later. One of mine and my dad's good friends on the PD carries a Kimber for duty. Only downfall is he has to carry extra mags 2 to 1 against the Glocks, XDs and M&Ps. Just something to think about.
But if you run out of ammo, the Kimber is heavy enough you could just hit the guy with it.........JK!
Sorry I should have clarified "thumb safety" I will not carry a gun with no thumb safety. That is the reason I sold it and will not buy another. They are for some people not me. By the way it was a gift from my dad so that's how I wound up with a glock. Like I said not bashing them they are great guns just not for me

Gotcha. Mine too was given to me by my dad. I love it and plan to buy more but I am not exclusively a Glock guy. There are other models I would love to own.

Kimber/Glock for home defense? Glock 19 but I still can't believe only one guy said shotgun. Home defense should start with a 12 or 20 gauge shotgun. Pistols are great if you are also going to carry away from home for defense and can only afford one weapon. Good shotgun examples are Mossberg 500/590, Remington 870, youth model shotguns are good- short and move well around the home.

*Get some training with whatever you choose and become a regular at the range.

Where did the OP say that a shotgun was considered? Keep shotguns out of this discussion.

I apologize for being so sharp. It was not my intent. I need to act on my own advice and review my post before submitting it. However , I do believe that shotguns were not an appropriate response to the OP's question.
