Missed that whole paragraph the first time out. VERY well said.uglydog said:My personal recommendation for a first handgun is a 22 LR. The guns are typically inexpensive for good ones, the ammo is very cheap, and one can better learn proper technique due to the minimal recoil and cost to shoot. The Glock may have the gretest advantage in this area as one can get a used, police trade in Glock with a 22 LR conversion kit for about the price of the "economic incentive" check. I have not seen such a kit for any of the XDs (though rumors of such have abounded over the years) nor do I think there is one for the SIG. That is the biggest down fall of your two choices and the greatest advantage to the Glock.
I agree completely :wink:Rastoff said:Get a Glock. Any model will do. I like the 22 and the 27. Glocks are simply the best made, most reliable handgun on the market today. They are extremely simple and easy to take down and reassemble.
They are probably the safest gun I've ever owned. There is no hammer, it's got an inertial firing pin and you have to have your finger on the trigger to shoot. Yet there's no manual safety to slow you down in a time of need.
They are remarkably accurate right out of the box.
Parts and accessories are readily available.
They're virtually indestructible.
