I will soon be buying my first gun. I want something compact that can easily be concealed. I am about 6 foot tall 165-170 pounds. I do not plan on carrying often, especially since my work will not allow it. Mostly I want it for the range so I can stop renting when I go to shoot and home protection. I have been looking at the G-19. I get some slack from one of my friends because he is not a glock fan but I slike the simplicity of the design. I dont want to have to use special tools for cleaning and baby a gun so that it will work. My one good friend is a cop so he can get me his discount at the place where he goes. Any suggestions as to what other brands/models I should look at?
