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.
The above are excellent reasons to choose a Glock. And the Model 19 is a good choice, just the right size for most folks. If you want to conceal then maybe the G26, though some people like a thinner single stack pistol. 9mm is the popular choice but I like the G23 40 S&W.

My first and favorite gun is my Glock 19. It's reliable and fun to shoot

Owned, used, and carried a Glock 26 since 1995. Never a problem. Use a Glock 17 for range work never a problem. Looking at a Gen 4 to update collection. For the price I don't think you can do better, they'll shhot anything
