Suggestions...
 
I know next to nothing about Glocks. Held one. Feels like a good, comfortable, lightweight gun. I have been reconsidering a 9mm over a .45 for my first gun. What are some of Glocks better models? And would anyone suggest something other than a 9mm as a starter? My reasons for 9mm are that it's less expensive, it's more accurate, it's easier to get and most 9mm guns can hold more rounds in one magazine.

Kind of trying to keep price in mind also. Plan on using it for home defense. Would prefer something not really "full-size" either. Only guns I've really shot were a couple revolvers, a PT92, and a 1911. I really like 1911s, but I want something a little less powerful that I can get better with and work my way up to a 1911 or some other .45.

I like the slimness of the 1911 design, and I would look into a Browning Hi-Power, but again, I don't know really anything about the gun. Plus a Browning Hi-Power is kind of an old gun, wouldn't anyone agree? I hear Glocks can be pretty trouble-free guns if maintained properly.

Thanks.

If you can't afford a Ninja Glock, the next best thing is a Glock 19. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best pistol old Gaston ever made.

What is a Ninja Glock? Like I said, I know next to nothing about Glocks.

I agree. I still have mine, but carry a G23. The compact Glocks are the best balance of ergonomics and firepower IMO.

A G19 was my first semiautomatic pistol and my first Glock. My buddy has it now and it's still a great and dependable shooter.

My tastes have changed, and I'm pretty stuck on the 1911, but I'll never say a bad word about the 19. ;)

Any good quality firearm will run properly if you take care of it.

If I were to purchase a Glock, it would be the Model 19. I personally don't like the Glocks much at all, but the Model 19 has about the best versatility out of the 9x19mm Glock offerings, in my opinion.

What? You mean you don't want a Glock 20 and a GI Industries conversion to the vaunted .50 GI round?? :eek::confused:

.50GI = Useless gimmick = Wasted money

...nuff said.
