Looking At A Glock 19

I never cared for the look of a Glock, or the fact that they are made out of a polymer instead of aluminum or steel.  While some of my buddies jumped on the glock bandwagon a decade ago, I stayed with the Beretta 92F and more recently the Remington 1911 R1.

To ensure that the group is constant in some of the firearms we own, I decided to buy a Glock.  The one I am looking at is the Glock 19.

Handguns for SHTF

Several months ago some of my buddies and I went to a shooting range in southeast Texas.  They arranged their Glocks on the table and let me test fire several of them.  The one I liked the best was the Glock 19.

The 19 fits the bill as a lightweight handgun that I can carry while working around the farm.  Something that I can carry while running a chainsaw, or brush hogging with the tractor.  A handgun that stays out of the way, lightweight and chambered in 9mm.

I already have a full sized hand gun, what I need is something between full sized and compact.

Now it is just a matter of saving the money to buy a Glock 19.  If everything goes ok, I might be able to get one in a month or so.

If you do not know what a Glock 19 is, here is a video.

I am not looking for another full sized handgun.  The Glock 19 will probably be one of a couple of new handguns I may add to my collection this year.

The other handguns I am looking at is the Walther 9mm and the Springfield.

I would love to have a Sig Sauer P226, but I heard their quality has gone downhill in the past few years. I have wanted a P226 since the late 1980s.

I am 49 years old.  I am tired of making excuses for not buying something, especially a handgun.  Why didn’t I buy a P226 a decade ago?  Maybe it was because my children were kids and I needed to take care of them first?

My children are grown and out of the house.  It is time I treat myself to a few new toys.
