When the Balloon Goes Up had a great post on four reasons he carries a Glock.
Head over and read the whole thing. I agree with every point.Here is the Cliff Notes version:
- I am a simpleton.
- I'm a wimp.
- Clicks are bad when you want a bang and bangs are bad when you don't.
- I really don't care about my Glocks!
On the same day I read this post I also read a news piece on the accidental death of a man that was legally carrying a Glock concealed, but loose in his pocket or his waistband.
Glocks are simple. You pull the trigger and it always goes BANG. This is usually a very good thing. Unless it's pointing at a main cable in your leg!
--Extreme reliability, large capacity, durable, and simple. Much like me!
