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.
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.
