    I took my test with a Glock 17 and fell in love with the Glock safe DAO action. It was smooth despite the 6 pound trigger pull, and I scored 10 points higher than my division manager that was there to requal that day.

    My first duty gun, and I expect a few snickers at this, was the 40 cal S&W Sigma. Now people have poked fun at the sigma saying it's a cheap gun. It is. Retail was $299 when I bought it. And I'd prefer a sturdier recoil spring and low light sights. But in the year and a half carrying it I must have sent 2,000 rounds through it at the range and I've never had a single stovepipe or other feed problem. You can probably thank Glock for that since S&W's Sigma and M&P series are basically Glock clones.

    I carry a Springfield XD now.

    a good pistol

    Glocks are Wonderful as everyone says they are.
    There a few draw back 1st one being it's hammer less
    2nd i have very big hands and only glock to fit my hands well is the model 21 45 acp and state of Louisiana doesn't let us carry 45s so you have find out what legal for you to carry in your area.
    3rd is the back strap is barely there unlike the like 1911 or 92 f/s
    so if you grip to high or have big hands the slide will bite you.
    you can go fire range and rent a few different pistols and get a feel for what you like and feel conformable with . Remember this is some thing that may save you life and want be good with it not look good with it.

    I carry a Beretta 92FS. I am the only on apart from my boss who also carries one. Everyone else carries a Glock 17i.

    I prefer Beretta seems to suit my shooting style better.

    The 23 has the same wallop as the 22 and is basically the same except it is 1 inch shorter in the barrel. When you stop for a loaf of bread on the way home that extra inch won't be poking out of your cover shirt. Also a lot easier when using as a CCW.
    Glock 23 is an excellent choice. If you have a local police dealer, you can pick them up pretty cheap.

    Up in Minnesota we have Streicher's, they sell the Glocks for $398.00 to security.

    My partner on Graveyards carries the Hi-Point C9. He is very happy with his.

    I agree with everything that has been said. If the weapon doesn't feel comfortable to you specifically then don't invest in it. I was in the Shreveport Police Academy and their issued duty firearm is the Glock mdl. 22C .40 caliber. This firearm has a great feel to me. Of course I had to resign from the academy due to knee injury but I carry a Glock mdl. 19 9mm now because of hospital policy on caliber size. The Glock Mdl. 19 is perfect for me, It is the mid size glock, but it fits my hand perfectly. I would look into Glock. Gaston Glock designed one of the best, if NOT the best firearm on the market today. It has 33 parts including the magazine. It features a floating slide(which the only contact is has to the frame is 4 rails. Plus the Glock almost never malfunctions. when it does malfunction, it is usualy a stovepipe malfunction(where the shell doesn't eject fast enough and the slide closes on it before it has time to clear ejection port)...this is so easy to clear...just tap the bottom of the maganzine, usually this clears it, if not...then just rack the slide. the second malfunction that rarly occurs is a double-feed. This is where one round is chambered and the magazine allows another round to come up behind it. Once again it is very easy to clear. Remove the magazine, and rack the slide to the rear. DONE! Like I said before glocks rarely malfunctions but when they do, they are easy to clear. Hope this helps.

    I just sold a beautiful nickel plated S&W .357 magnum 5-1/2" perfect condition. It was just too much and too few of bullets, 6. It would blow gallon jugs filled with pebbles up and make it completely disappear. Imagine it would do that with an arm or leg joint too. But definitely a two handed firearm to aim accurately.

    Planning to buy a Glock for rapid fire and precision. A lot of assault rifle finatics have those, so must be effective as well. Sounds like I'll have to do research to find the perfect fit for my big mits, and find the perfect round size for maximum power with required accuracy. I may invest in one of those red lasers gun sights for $60 - $80 (3rd from bottom of link).

    I'd rather learn if one of my 2 new Security companies supplied me with any Glock to build a base of comparison history. But I'm not going to hold my breath. The shooting range idea mentioned previously sounds like an excellent suggestion, since firing at targets is the only way you will find out.

    I currently carry a Sig Pro SP2009. But whatever gun feels good in your hand and what you are comfortable handling. And what your company rules allow you to carry...Just my thoughts!

    Be safe,

    Hank
