    Glock 19

    Looking at the glock 19 as a first handgun. Any other comparable this choice out there? The only negative I have about it is that it has no safety lock other then that all reviews i have read are great.

    thanks,
    Jerry

    Comparable models can be had from Springfield, Smith & Wesson, Sig, H&K, FN, Walther, Beretta, CZ, Steyr, and probably a few others I can't immediately think of.

    The Glock has a two safeties, which you can easily do a search for more information.

    The best safety for handguns, and indeed all firerams, is the grey one between your ears.

    The G19 will be cheaper on ammo for you to start with. I love my G27 (baby Glock 40cal). The 40S&W has a bit different recoil than either the 9mm or 45acp. If you start with the G23 and get disappointed, I'm affraid you might loose interest and time...time you could have better spent learning the Glock and the basics with the 9mm. Just my opinion.

    Renting is very wise as it gives you an idea of likes and dislikes. You can't go wrong with the Glock 19. Easy to conceal, realatively cheap ammo, and very reliable.

    Good shooting to you, and please, take a gun safety course.

    Great gun choice for first.I wouldnt let the limited safety systems compared to others scarfe you.You should know when its ready to fire and when not.Also hint:if your in doubt take the mag out and clear the chamber.Also the trigger will be pushed towards front and not resting towards back....
