Glock 19 Pros and Cons

When I got this assignment, I thought it fit me to a T. I have been lucky to fall into the orbit of a visionary editor who has asked me to stretch my limits in writing. This article challenged me on several counts. I have owned a number of Glock 19 handguns. I have traded them, and sometimes the trade was up and sometimes down. I should have kept the first one. I have carried the pistol professionally and fired it in any number of test programs.

Glock G42: A Remarkable Handgun

For most of my life I have carried what some refer to as big guns. The Chief’s Special is a backup. The Commander .45 is a carry gun. And I am familiar with practically every light pistol made in the past century, from the Harrington and Richardson SLP to the Walther PP Super. Some work better than others. Very few have service-gun reliability.

The very nice, slick SIG P230 is a great handgun, and there are not many others I trust.
