I have been looking to get a handgun for some time with the intention of CCW carry. Originally, I was looking to perhaps get a Glock 26, or Glock 19. However, after some persistant (and humorous) pestering by my roomate, who is an avid Steyr fan, who took joy in constantly reminding me that "Glocks explode," I finally decided to give his steyr a try. This was shot at around 10 yards. Now, I have never shot pistol before, but have quite a few years behind a rifle in competition shooting. Now, I was not used to that much recoil, never really feeling it inside the shoulder much, but its nothing I cant get used to. Other than that, it shot like a dream. I notice also that the Steyr fit my hand better, and was not quite as "blocky" as the Glock. Now, I did have a few FTEs, but I attribute that to my lack of experience with handguns and I suppose that I "limp wristed" the firearm. Somethng I will surely work on in the near future. Also, some people complain about the steyr sights, but I really like them. I actually think the ease of which these sights can be aimed, and maintain a sight picture probably helped my shot grouping a bit. I like them. In the end, I am very pleased with the Steyr, and will be looking to get one here in the next few days, I just havent decided on what caliber yet. Any suggestions in that area? Im not too familiar with pistol calibers.
