    IME, the butt is the hardest part to keep hidden with any handgun, and the Glock 19 doesn't give up anything to a Hi Power in that regard.

    I've carried a number of different handguns, from .357 revolvers to 1911s to S&W 3rd gen autos... However the Glock's lighter weight makes carrying it all day more comfortable, for me, than any steel framed pistol.

    As a Briton every pistol is a dream gun :censored: But just to play,, my dream gun was always a Colt SAA, and if I could own/carry.. I think I'd end up with a CZ, Glock, or HK, and a couple of S&W revolvers for good measure.

    Trust me I'm sorely tempted. If I can get a position with a US company when I graduate I just might, even if its' an excuse for me to check out your awesome awesome countryside. Without derailing the thread the problem with UK gun law is two fold, one, pistols are practically taboo, and two it's the usage (private land only) laws rather than the physical gun type restrictions (can own most calibers, most bolt/semi rifles and shotguns as well as suppressors) that are limiting.

    I was dating an American girl for a while, from a pro-gun family, when I found out one of the first thoughts I had was :censored: I hope I get to shoot her dads guns hahaha.

    Anyway heres some candy,,

    Dream Gun: Hurm.... Hard to say. I've always been kinda utility in my firearms. I buy what I really want and nothing else. I guess if we're going just for snits and giggles.
    Maybe this? A Mateba model 6, with heavy customization. lol I'm not exactly sure what I would use it for, other than just showing off, but it's fun.

    Or the old stand by,

    In case I want to shoot down planes or something obscene.


    Top two are mine. the P320 is a stock photo, as I don't have any good ones of my P320. The Legion will be here in a month or so and the dream guns well. lol I don't have/can't afford them (yet?)

    Dream gun: HK G36

    CCW: Highly modified Glock 19

    Home Defense: AA12 Full Auto Shotgun

    Now the AA12 is just ridiculous, but we're talking childhood dreams here! The AA12 sits right next to a Barrett M107 and a pair of chrome Desert Eagles in my dreams! But then again, in my dreams I'm Jack Bauer, soooo.....

    Home Defense: 9mm M1 Walther PPQ on the wife's side of the bed, Glock 17 on my side, and a 20 gauge Double Barrel behind the bed

    Carry: Glock 17 IWB in jeans or Glock 42 in dress clothes

    Dream: Beretta 92FS. I wanted one ever since I saw Die Hard and Lethal Weapon as a kid and it was the first pistol I bought when I turned 21. I sold it a couple of years ago because I was having a hard time finding a use for it and I don't care much for safe queens. It shot like a dream though and I'll probably pick one up at some point.
