As soon as I saw the headline I thought “Glock”.
I was right. Nice guns. But I wouldn’t want one for that very reason.
They can call that thing on the trigger a safety all they want. But it isn’t.
Glocks are nice, but they just feel unbalanced, even with a full mag.
Most PolyCarb Pistols feel like that to me, Beretta included.
I was thinking of getting a Beretta 9000, but it just doesn’t feel natural in my hand.
I guess I’m just used to the feel of steel and the M9
But when people ask me “what type of handgun should I get” I tell them to go to the range, rent several, and find the one that you shoot the best.
Like I said, to each his own.
I wouldn’t mind a plastic Kel-Tec .32 for concealed carry, but they’re illegal for sale in Kalifornia as they don’t have an external safety.
The Glock is a simple firing mechanism, very reliable, and accurate. When you see police carrying a Glock it is always in a holster and most always not concealed. Ask a few detective who carry in concealed holsters what they prefer as primary pistol and what they carry as backup. I own a Glock with a 9mm barrel and mags and a .40 cal barrel and mags. I concealed carry a CZ82, chambered with hammer down. If I holster and carry my .45 Taurus OSS DS it is always in aholster, chambered and decocked. The Glock is reserved for holstering in a Molle Vest or as an extra in a fanny pack, and I never carry it chambered, but never have just that pistol to depend on.
