also getting a proper safe but it's in the mail still

@jotaku it seems to have a good reputation for reliability (which is important) and of the handguns I've gotten a chance to shoot I liked it the best. Plus the popularity of the Glock 19 means lots of aftermarket support. I also thought about the M&P 2.0 Compact but no one I know has one so I ended up going with what I already know I'm okay with shooting.

@animeirl Good reasons! I honestly don't know where to start but I've been thinking about getting my first handgun a lot recently.

@jotaku Glock 19, M&P9 2.0 Compact and CZ P10C seem to be the "jack of all trades" pistols I see brought up most often. There's a decent chance I will get something smaller if I start concealed carrying on a daily basis, but smaller guns are considerably less comfortable to shoot/harder to control. so I wanted something a little easier to learn with while still somewhat practical if I do feel the need to concealed carry. Bigger or all metal handguns are easier to control from my limited experience but they're also less practical for carrying and I want that to be an option. I'm dumb and very attracted to revolvers so I was thinking a .38 special for my first. It's cheap and easy to conceal and there's something very satisfying about revolvers, even though I acknowledge a 9mm is a much more practical handgun.

@jotaku don't really know anything about revolvers. One of the people I shoot with has a snubnosed revolver for concealed carry which was very concealable but painful to fire. Admittedly I'm sure it's easier to control with practice.

@animeirl yeah, I get that they aren't practical but there's something about the mechanics of them that just fascinates me.
