Glocks are a fine choice on paper. That's where I started. But the Glock just doesn't fit my hand very well. I ended up going with a Springfield XDm. It feels a little better in my smallish hand and has one extra safety feature.

Go to the range and shoot a few guns, but take along a friend. Ranges don't like to rent guns to people who come alone without a gun. There are good reasons, but that doesn't need to be on this thread.

Welcome!

Nah, just those who think that there is no other gun in the world that can compare to Glock. I actually ordered a G26 Gen 4 cause I wanted to check out the newer ones. I shot a Gen 1 years ago, put it down and never picked up another one until Tue when it came in. Still not my favorite, but they do feel better then the Gen 1. I just hope I can move it.

I'll have a GLOCK one day, I'll admit it. But, having had experience with GLOCK, there are other guns much much higher on my list. Like building Cinderocka a 1911...

So far i love Glocks and i'm open to any guns. If the gun has nicr model, good price, reliable and feel comfortable to me. Regardless the brand is, why not?

To the OP, Glock is reliable, easy to strip apart and cheap. But there are other brands which might be better, cheaper/ more expensive and etc. It all depends to each of his/her own.

I like my glock 19 (gen 3) but a negative for me is the thick grip. You may want to see if you can get a good solid grip on it.
That said, it is still one of my primary go to weapons, because it is dependable, hi-capacity, and easy to use.

Glocks are fine pistols for defense. I find the consistent trigger pull easy for teaching new shooters. The lack of redundant safeties can be a good thing for new shooters as well. All that I have to drill into a new shooter is to keep the finger off the trigger until ready to shoot. I don't have people returning their pistols to a holster and forgetting to re-activate the safety. I don't have people forgetting to turn safeties off during stress drills, either when drawing from a holster.

All handgun callibers are pretty marginal for stopping a threat, but 9mm, .40, and .45 when placed properly and using good ammo are proven to be effective.

I also have a G19 generation 3. I have small to medium size hands and its perfect for me. But its best to try out multiple guns, research them, watch reviews on them, see what you like and then make a choice.
