Revolver guy comes to Glock

I'm a long time collector and shooter of S&W revolvers. I love them - their looks, the way they shoot, their reliability. Honestly, I've never really given Glock much of a look - mainly because they were the opposite of aesthetic cool, at least compared to the sexy lines of some 1960s/70s Smiths.

But when it came time to get my CCW... well, as much as I love my K-frames, they are a real commitment for an every-day carry. And J-frames might be fine for a quick run to the corner store to pick something up, but are really lacking in firepower.

So I decided to get a Glock. Did my research and decided on a Glock 19. Found a local shop about three weeks ago that had three in stock. By the time I got there the next morning, they had two. I was fondling it, and the guy behind the counter pulled out a S&W M&P9c. I admit, I really liked how it felt in my hand. All of the sudden, I was second guessing myself. Research is one thing, the actual feel is another. So, there I am, holding one, holding the other - my head saying Glock, my hand saying the S&W. And the guy at the shop is pushing the S&W. Finally I asked the guy what he carries. He lifts his shirt and says "Glock 19." And I'm thinking "then why are you trying to sell me an S&W." Must be a better profit. I practically threw the S&W at him and took the Glock. Someone bought the last one before my checkout was done.

I put on the M-sized grip panel plus a Pachmayr sleeve - a perfect fit for my hand and the sleeve gives a nice palmswell feel. I swapped out to an extended slide release and have put about 600+ rounds through it so far. WOW - I love it. I don't know what took me so long to come around to Glock, but what an amazingly fun gun to shoot and carry.

Welcome to the Dark Side and the gun that looks like it was designed by Woody Woodpecker.

I carried a J-Frame for over twenty years. Your first Glock won't be your last. Take a test drive with the 26 sometime and you'll be ruined. LOL
G'day and G'lock.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your purchase.

Somehow .... I see a Glock 26 in your future. Sort of like the J-frame compared to the K-frame.

Welcome and good choice. Nothing wrong with the M&P, but I prefer Glocks. Feel in the hand doesn't translate into best function when shooting. I find that the blocky Glock grip aids in a solid, repeatable "vice like" hold with my support hand.
