I became a Reserve Police Officer in Aurora Colorado in 1996. I never owned a Glock and really had no intention of ever owning a Glock, NEVER say never. At the police Academy we were required to use Dept issue Glock 19s, my first day on the range openned my eyes, wow, what a great handgun. At that time I owned 2 hand guns, a S&W 686 and a Browning HP 9mm, I enjoyed shooting them, especially the Browning which is another outstanding handgun. One of the things that I fell in love with double action only, what a great idea, you don't have to worry about forgetting to put your safety on. One of our range masters was a friend of mine, Rich Wyatt, the guy who had a TV show, he is a great guy and will give you an honest opinion about selecting a weapon. I had already taken several courses that were taught by Rich, and knew he could only make me a better and safer shooter. After we were at the range several times I began talking to Rich about double action only weapons, when he knew I was looking for advise, he told me that in his opinion the Glock was what I was looking for. The things I liked about double action only and the Glock had the best action, I had better tell you that this was 1996 and I have not followed any new handguns since then. I am very satisfied with my choice of weapons and really not looking for another. To me I like the fit in my hand, the feel of the weapon and the trigger pull and the way it shoots. I originally owned a Glock 22 then a 27 (holster and ankle) what I didn't like about the 22 and it is only me, I am not trying to tell anyone what to buy, but I didn't like the length, so I bought a 23 and later I liked the 23C, I sold my 22 and got the 23C. I am very happy with my Glocks and shoot as much as I can afford.
