Just wanted to introduce myself. I recently started shooting, I was one of those people that was scared to death of guns.... because I didn't know how to use one. I thought if you touched it, it would go off. Now I know how to operate a gun and the fear is gone. Hubby's Glock 17 was a bit too heavy for me and I was leaning towards S&W M&P 9 or the Ruger SR9. Til hubby took me to the Gun Shop and the owner said try this and put a Glock 19 in my hand, PERFECT FIT!!! I knew that was the gun for me, I started putting money away for it, but Hubby surprised me with it for Christmas. I love my Glock 19!!
