Hey all, I'm new here, and hoping for some advice or reassurance. I'm purchasing my first defensive/CCW pistol, and leaning heavily toward the M9-A1. I've read everything on the internet I could get my hands on, and the more I've read the more it feels like the M9 is absolutely the correct choice. The problem is this... I'm only used to firing Glock 17/19's and SIGS (besides Ruger M3's)... and the local armourer/range is hugely a Glock dealer. Most of the guys at the range are Glock fanatics. I've never fired the M9-A1, but the more I read, the more I feel it's exactly what I want. There are no gunshops though anywhere near that carry it, so there's nowhere to see or try one. Called CDNN today, and the rep said they could sell one thru my local gunshop, so I went and spoke with the local shop guys. And they all said the Steyr pistols were junk, when compared to a Glock. And again it was "Glock" sales time! A Glock 26 is on the shop's current sales menu (which I've been told countless painful times that it is THE CCW weapon of choice... but honestly I don't like the balance or feel of it. Don't enjoy shooting it at all). I'm willing to take the leap, and the chance, and order a Steyr. For several reasons... not least of which is ease of field stripping. But I really sense that this is the pistol for me. And I really like the idea of trapezoidal sights... they make perfect sense to me. Just looking for some reassurance from Steyr users that have also fired Glocks, because it seems that the guys at the range think I must be a total idiot, and that I must know nothing about handguns, for considering a Steyr over a Glock. But no one I've spoken with has actually fired a Steyr, so... :? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
