By way of introduction, I'm Steve from NorCal. Although my screen name is noGottaGlockyet, soon I will havaGlock. A 19 to be specific. I was looking to replace my .40 FN Hi-Power with a 9mm striker-fired pistol. My short list was: Glock 17 or 19; S&W M&P9; SA XD9 Tactical; and the Ruger SR9. I tried all but the M&P at my local range. I really liked the Ruger, but I also really shot well w/ the 19. Decided on the 19. Just had to go with the Glock. So, now one is on the way from Grabagun. I cannot wait to shoot it...shoot it ALOT!
