I went with the Glock 20 for several reasons, mag capacity being paramount. No other 10mm will hold as much ammo.
Add the fact it does not rust, plastic and treated metals, make it easy to care for.
Add in the dependability factor and the Glock format is a strong choice.
For me personally. A like a nonstandard external safety. I know how to quickly use the weapon, but others holding it, do not fully understand why the gun does not operate. That can only be a good thing.
I do not see my external safety as training wheels, but as a additional safety that keeps me (not talking about anyone but me) from catching Glock leg.
