    I found the perfect CCW gun........

    ............. Perfect for me at least. I was killing a little time browsing at the local pawn shop today and noticed a cute little Glock in the display case. I asked to look at it and the nice lady at the counter handed it over the counter to me. It was a model 19 and looked to have never been shot. I asked if there were any extra magazines that came with it. She stepped away for a moment and returned with the original plastic box with the manual and even a spent shell from the factory. The price tag said $429.00 and I was ready to buy at that price when the lady smiled and pointed to a sign on the wall that said one day sale, firearms 10% off. $386.10 +tax. I'll pick it up Monday.

    That is a favorite EDC of many. Sounds like a great deal.

    It is a generation 3. Since there wasn't any other customers in that area of the store I asked the sales clerk if I could compare it to my G21. She said no problem, so I cleared it and laid the two guns side by side. The .45 looks like a giant next to the little 9 mm. It will certainly be easier to hide the 19.

    I have often said that size wise the G19 its cousins are the perfect carry guns.

    The biggest problem with Glocks is that they work! I carry a G26 and a G30. Never had any issues with either one.

    A G19 or G23 is on my list, but I have at least one more Walther and maybe a CZ ahead of it. They're just too smooth.
