Well I can honestly say I tried the Glock bandwagon, but I have fallen off and while I can see the appeal of the Glock it’s just not for me. The ergonomics are like holding a 2X4 and I just can’t shoot well with it. Additionally that block like grip doesn’t conceal very well.

So what did I go with? A revolver would have been preferable, but a fast reload and more than 6 rounds are a must. A 1911 style gun? I own plenty, but most have become collector’s pieces. Not what you want to risk having disappear into an evidence locker forever. I instead went with something that was both familiar and yet new.


When I chose the Glock this was the runner up and as it turns out a better choice. The Smith and Wesson M&P 45C. I need to get used to shooting a .45 again, (yes I hear you laughing) but for 18 rounds at 15 yards I don’t think I did too bad.


Those who know me will not be surprised to find out I did some work on the gun. More on that later.
