    Good options. I would recommend handling and if possible shooting them before you buy. The 19 is a great gun but not the easiest to conceal. That said I trust my life to a glock every day and I manage to conceal my 20.
    Any reason you prefer the gen 4?

    I have held the gen 4 and really liked it. The shooting would take some getting use to but it felt like a great gun. Very reliable.

    Once you make your decision make sure you are proficient with the gun and that it works reliably with the ammo you choose before you carry.
    I always run 200 rounds through a gun before I trust my life to it just to make sure everything functions perfectly and I can hit what I'm aiming at.
    Many people would not suggest the glock as a first carry gun due to over zealous trust in safeties. Practice keeping your booger picker off the bang switch and you don't have to worry about glock leg.

    my pref is beretta but i often carry a m9a1 inox compact. i like that it uses a 13 round mag and accets my 20 rounders as well. the beretta is a better gun than a glock in my opinion.

    you need to handle both and possibly shoot both to see what works for you. my pref is only valid for me

    Well, this is the Beretta sub forum so the opinions might lean towards Beretta. I carry the Beretta Nano and have great things to say about them. It is slim (less than an inch) and therefore very concealable. It fits well in my hands which are average and not very large. I also tried the LC9 and the S&W Shield but settled on the Nano.

    The only thing negative I could think to say about a Glock is I don't like the way they look. Thats not a very good reason not to own one if it feels good in your hands, it's comfoprtable to shoot and you can find a way to conceal it easily. The decision really comes down to what you are comfortable with and trust. Both the Beretta and Glock have great reputations and you will find lovers and haters of both. Shoot them both before you decide and purchase. And if you can't decide you can always buy both...

    +1 on the Nano. Ive been happy with mine. During my break in period i had one FTF out of 420 rounds. It was with 115 grain PMC. Kind of dirty ammo and the reviews I've read suggest 124 grain although beretta doesn't say the same. But it fed everything else i feed it; fmj, jhp, etc.
    it conceals very well IWB as well and ill bet some can carry it as a pocket pistol too. Definitely a worthy option. Check out my review in the "articles" section.

    Have owned both and agree, the Glock is a fine gun, but the beretta beats it.

    I am very happy with my Nano. It is reliable, accurate and easy to pocket carry or in a holster IWB or OWB. I do use a Remora 4ART a lot. I carry every day. I have had it since January 15, 2012. The 6 FTEx were early on with poor ammo.

    Pick a model of each... AND SHOOT EM.

    Both are decent platform... both are reasonably reliable... both will give a lifetime of service... (as long as you don't put non jacketed lead through the Glock).

    Personally, between the two, I'd go with Beretta but that's a "subjective" opinion from a guy who just does not like the Glock grip angle... If you shoot it and like it... it should serve you fine.

    Yesterday I made another range trip for the purpose of checking out the new Bedair stainless guide rod I had installed in the Nano. Of course it worked just fine. I shot 100 Academy/Monarch 115 gr FMJ with no problems. This now makes 1255 rounds total. :)

    What do they charge for that? Do you have to ship them the spring?

    With priority shipping it is $50. Yes, you have to ship the guide rod assembly.

    Personally, I would choose a Beretta over a Glock. I don't like the way Beretta shoots, but, I have never seen a Beretta blow up in someones hands either. I have seen 2 Glocks do that.
