Welcome to the Club

Squeaky Wheel has settled on her weapon of choice.  It happens to be the same as mine.  It won’t let her down.

    I’m a relatively new reader of your blog and, for lack of a better expression, “new to guns”. I’d like to know why that particular firearm is your “weapon of choice”. Just curious.

    Basic criteria for settling on Glock:

    No need to fuss with manual safety
    Reputation for reliability
    Light weight polymer frame
    Double stack grip fits my large hands well

    Basic criteria for selecting the 19:

    9mm is a common pistol round, and easy to find good carry loads.
    Smaller than the Glock 17, for easier concealability
    Larger than the 26 to fit my large hands

    Take a look at the Springfield XD9.

    All the benefits above, but cheaper and has a neat grip safety to stop you shooting yourself in the thigh while reholstering (-;

    For the most part, Sebastian’s reasoning for the Glock parallels my reasons for carrying a revolver most of the time.

    I like the XD series a lot. It wasn’t available when I purchased my Glock though.
