thinking of getting a pistol

So I am seriously considering getting a new pistol. Ive been looking at the glock 22. I like the idea of having the accessory rail.
I need a fullsize gun cause my hands do not fit on the compact ones very well.
Any thoughts/input on this would be great!

definately go shoot

i have a G22, G27 and had a Springfield XD-40

I personally prefer the glock's fit but a lot of folks like the xd better

the g22 is def a great firearm tho

I had really never even considered the Springfield but when I went shoot with my buddy he had the xd40 and I loved it, I found it to suit me a little better than the Glock I was fixing to purchase. very important to try out the guns you are interested in buying. Enjoy the hunt for the perfect gun.

The Beretta is not the best gun anyway, the locking block always breaks and in older modals if you push in on that little extension of the barrel the hammer won't fall. Go with the Springfield and get a 40.

I have had 9 Berrettas, and have never had a problem, or breakage with any of them.

To the OP. Get what fits your hand, and is comfortable to carry, and shoot accuratley.
