I am, like many of you, a shooter on a budget. Im looking for a defensive pistol but want it to also be fun to take to the range and not horribly expensive either. I have narrowed it down to to opposite choices. Glock 19 or Taurus PT145. I like cheap 9mm ammo and realiability. But the 45 has the stopping power and is cheaper for the unit. Should I just save up a couple hundred extra and get the glock or go with the pocket 45? Whats the word?
