Nothing wrong with glocks just don't want one myself, but if they start pricing them like hi point I'd buy a couple.

Not by a long shot.

Personally, I really have nothing against Glocks. When I looked for my first handgun about 3 years ago, the G19 was one of the guns I was considering. But in the end I thought the M&P 9 was the clear winner for me. It has some of the best attributes of the Glock design with some needed improvements...and is American made, which still means something to many of us.

i personally think the Glock is an excellent designed pistol that functions very reliabily, but the end all, be all pistol for everyone? nope! if a Glock comes along at the right price and at the right time, yes i'm buying another one.

The best argument for keeping one in the chamber is for when / if you need to draw and fire one handed. Especially if it ends up being your off hand.

Defending yourself from a physical attack or pushing a loved one out of harms way etc. Imagine having your arm broken with a club if some sort or taking that knife thrust into the palm of your hand to buy time to pull your gun.

If you don't think something like that could happen, why carry at all.

this was exactly the arguement i used to counter his reasoning with. if you think about what could happen, then you need to be prepared for it or have a good backup plan.

They're really an improved copy of the Browning design- apples to apples,

IMO, and you may be right about less expensive.
