I had considered a .22 until things started going on around home

Picked up the G19 Gen 4 last week. Hit the range & put 200 rounds through it. Grouping tight. Couldn't be happier with it. Had. 22 when I was a child. Plunking? Seriously?

Yeah, for your needs it sounds like the G19 is the way to go...that being said, training is just as important as the weapon. So don't short change your skill set after you get the handgun. Practice, practice, practice. Then get some formal training. If not, you won't be as effective IF you ever have to protect yourself or loved ones.

This thread confused me a little at first. I thought you were talking about a G19 and G22...which I believe you were. Then .22LR came up...I didn't know what to think and I had to re-read the thread. But I think you should choose what ever is most comfortable to you. It all is going to come down to that and shot placement. A well placed shot with either a G19 or G22 will be effective.

I have a 19 and love it, 9mm ammo is much cheaper and you can afford to practice more, if I didn't feel comfortable with the nine, I personally would go .357 Sig. It's more expensive, but ive read great things about it. Plus, you can buy 9mm and. 40 cal barrel conversions for it.

The G23 or G32 are flexible. G19 is 9mm only. All three are the same size, weight slightly different. G32 is about 1/2 oz heavier than the G19.

Um, if you are looking at the 19 aren't you looking at the 23 as the same size counterpart?

The 22 is the same size as a 17 and 31.

Either way, full size, compact or subcompact. I'd go with a .40 or .357 sig model. If you really want to shoot 9mm, all you need is a factory or conversion barrel, ejector and magazines to convert your glock to 9mm.

You can even convert from .40 to .357 with a simple barrel change.

I second Tikki. If you get a .40 or .357 sig, all you need to convert to 9mm down the road is a barrel and a few mags. Not so easy going the other way.

ya, you can't go the other way kuz the 9mm breechface is smaller.

I did have issues with some of my conversions throwing brass in my face so you may or may not have to buy an ejector ($15). Some did, some didn't, I had a 31, in .357, 40, and 9mm, still have a G33 in all 3 calibers, and have a 21 in .45 acp and 10mm auto.

Fun stuff!
