My .45 ACP Glock 21s are very reliable and accurate.
I know that Glocks r held in high esteem,
but a friend of mine got a new Glock 19
and he took it to a gunnery range,
to try it out. I invited him to try my guns
and vice-versa. Out of the first 15 round magazine,
his brand new Glock jammed on me 3 times.
(I was well aware of keeping a stiff wrist, and did so.)
None of my revolvers did.
Most of my gun collection consists of revolvers
tho I have a few automatics, notably a 9mm Luger P-'08,
from 1940 (whose provenance I know not) which renders good service,
but 9mm lacks sufficient stopping power to be used as a defensive weapon.
For stopping power (and for jamlessness
) I favor my 2 inch .44 special
Taurus Model 445 in stainless steel mirror.
I have it loaded with hollowpointed slugs, with W - I - D - E
I am not sure if our English friends on this thread approve
of this defensive strategy. I wonder what Churchill 'd have thought of it.
