I have been primarily a Sig fan and historically have avoided Glocks. Then there was a thread on the Sig Forum saying "you will buy a Glock"! It wasn't a negative post just a statement. There is sooooo much about Glocks out there that I finally had to have one to see for my self. My first one is a G19 Gen4. Actually very similar to my M11 A1 (P229 pretty much) so it has been fun to note differences in function etc. No reliability issues so that is really the critical element. I have carried both now and also have a XD9 SC and Kahr PM9. My G19 is now right up there with my other favorites. It is lighter to carry but OWB is my way to carry the larger compacts and actually my preferred carry method but tougher to cover than IWB. I like forums and all the debate and information. I am also an NRA Basic Pistol Instructor (recent development). Age 66!
