I already own a 12 gauge shotgun but now I'm looking to get my first handgun and it sounds like glocks are the way to go. I was hoping on some advice on what kind of glock and what I'm looking at spending
I would say for the type of glock, go pick up a few and see how the feel in your hand. You may not like the 26 but the 19 feels great so it really depends on which is a better fit and what caliber you are looking for. On price Gen 3's are about 499ish and Gen 4 539-600ish depending on options and your LGS/dealer.
"Regardless of whether justified of not, you will feel sad about killing another human being. It is better to be sad than to be room temperature." - Joe B Fricks.
Definitely try various brands including the Glock. And determine the caliber you want. The Glock 19 is a great choice or the G26 if you want to conceal.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
