My advice would be to find a range that rents handguns. Try as many as you can and find what works for you. There is nothing wrong with the two Glock models you listed. Glocks are fine guns, but they're not for everyone.

If you're still interested in Glocks after firing a few I would look at the "subcompact" line (G19 or G23). These models are very manageable and can be carried openly or concealed easily.

If I may, I would start with the G19 model.

9mm, nice to shoot, easier to conceal and carry than the bigger G21 and G22.

Then as you begin to learn and gather experience, you can move to other calibers and sizes.

Sure it's legal to carry either (assuming you have a GWL/GFL). In my opinion the G21 & G22 are a little large for daily carry, especially if you plan to carry concealed.

Good advice on renting the guns then deciding. That is exactly what I did. I rented a G17 and a G19. I chose the 19 and have never looked back. I prefer compact and subcompact models. Nothing wrong with full size. It just comes down to personal preference. Good luck.

I have shot all four. the G21,22,23 and 19. i have and carry the 19. i like the smaller size but it holds 15 rounds of 9mm. with the 124+p Gold dots i feel i am not underpowered. it is a very controllable package.

find a range that had a wide variety of guns for rental. try the various glocks you listed, as well as some other handguns. try sig, h&k, s&w, and also try some 1911s.

i started off thinking i wanted a glock, but the first time i picked one of those things up, i shot it, handed it back, and went home and washed the shame off myself. bought an sr9, it was mediocre for a while. eventually mathar1 talked me into trying a 1911, and thats all ill carry now. i feel dirty just thinking of carrying anything else.

I own a Glock 21sf. I don't conceal carry it because of it's size. I keep it at home beside the bed. I carry a Glock 27 because it is easy to conceal. If I open carried then I probably would consider the 21, but I think it is definitely not for CC in my world.

I would not suggest a Glock as the first weapon or any other weapon of it's type that has no safety or de-cocker.
IMHO, weapons like this are for the well trained and experienced shooter. I'd suggest a DA/SA auto or a revolver for a while and lots of training.

"Old guy to old guy" :wink: , Sig's, modern S&W da/sa autos, 1911's & the like. Rent some and see what feels good to you. Find training now so you can find a trainer you feel comfortable with. Tell us your area and I bet someone knows someone who will be glad to help you. Bet you can even find and 'old guy'. My preference also. :lol:

You don't need a 9mm "starter gun". I carried a 3" 1911 .45ACP for years before I ever shot a 9mm. You'll get used to whatever you shoot and carry. I like the G21, and would recommend it.

Full disclosure, I carry a G19 now, but not for caliber or recoil reasons.

Same -- my first was 45ACP and with exception to the security six I used to pass the range test for CCW, didn't fire another caliber for years.

I'm actually glad I first cut my teeth on a big bore 45. Gave me the confidence to later experiment with other calibers without any self doubt.

Incidentally, most of my carry guns are 40SW for reasons of economy.

Well my reason for buy a handgun is:

Days ago I was working on my laptop
Around 9:00 am when a heard something
downstairs, so I shouted "Honey , you home"
and got no replay , I waited 5 minutes and
went to the I've balcony of the stairs coming
across a strange black guy never seen in my life
. I was in Shock and din't know what to do a
neither did he. That's when he opened the door
and stormed off running away.

I just can't imaging if that happen when my
wife or my kids stay alone at home.

After that We are thinking serius buy a handgun
with or not experience .

Thank you
