I am not sure if I want the 19 or the 22 as my first pistol. Anyone have any pros or cons to either
I got a G19 as my first pistol. After zipping going through a box of 9MM, I went shopping for a .22LR pistol. I’m not sorry I bought the 9mm because the reason I bought it is still valid, I’m just saying that for a first pistol you might consider a .22LR instead of, or in addition to, the G19, G22, or other pistol. That is if you want to spend any time to get more than just competent with a pistol. Or do you have lots of revolver experience or something?I am not sure if I want the 19 or the 22 as my first pistol. Anyone have any pros or cons to either
The difference between shooting a longarm and a handgun is more than the difference between driving a stick and an automatic. It’s like the difference between driving a car and riding a motorcycle. Outside of sight picture, everything is different. Give some consideration to a .22 pistol as a first handgun.All my firearm experience is with rifles and shotguns. This is my first step out into the pistol world
The G23 or G32 are flexible. G19 is 9mm only. All three are the same size, weight slightly different. G32 is about 1/2 oz heavier than the G19.sputnik1988 said:I have a 19 and love it, 9mm ammo is much cheaper and you can afford to practice more, if I didn't feel comfortable with the nine, I personally would go .357 Sig. It's more expensive, but ive read great things about it. Plus, you can buy 9mm and. 40 cal barrel conversions for it.
ya, you can't go the other way kuz the 9mm breechface is smaller.I second Tikki. If you get a .40 or .357 sig, all you need to convert to 9mm down the road is a barrel and a few mags. Not so easy going the other way.
