Mike Baker’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump features . . . wait for it . . . a GLOCK 19! Which could well be America’s favorite handgun. Gun? That too! But is it America’s favorite carry gun? I doubt it. The GLOCK 19 . . .
is not right-sized for concealed carry.
Well, not for people who consider the firearm too big to conceal. Not without changing they way they dress and move, and learning to say “I’m happy to see you” with a warm, genuine smile when someone asks “is that a GLOCK 19 on your hip or are you happy to see me?”
Remember: no one ever lost money overestimating the laziness of the American people. Their desire not to have to change. In other words, the GLOCK 42 or 43 beat the 19 hands up. I mean down. Hands down. Where I can see them.
I wonder if the 42 and 43 outsell the venerable 19, and if Gaston’s mob gets the same percentage of the purchase price. (“Youz guys gotta wet my beak.”) Equally, I wonder if Mike Baker would trade his 19 for a 42 or 43 and, say, a Rolex Daytona (Mike’s a jeweler). It doesn’t keep me up at night, but the question is in there. No wait. It’s gone.
