Moving from NY to Houston. I'm only going to budget myself for one new firearm, a handgun, for my first year or so while I get settled in. Needs to be able to perform around the house and as a carry piece.

Go!

If you are a newer handgun owner, such as in a "first time owner".....go with something like a SIG 2022.  There's a reason that a large number of folks who shoot themselves accidentally have done it with a Glock.  Though in the end, it AIN'T the fault of the Glock.

There's no need for a gun in Houston. It's just a nice, friendly peaceful burb as you would ever hope to find

Yea a little more info. Another great feature of the Glock is you can set it down anywhere without messing up the gun finish
or the finish of what it is resting on. When walking around in jammies without a holster I carry from room to room at night while
getting ready for beddie bye and relaxing; it sits on the tile island while in the kitchen making a sammich then my Masonic bible
as I enjoy my sammich then to the tile counter in the bath as I clean up after sammich, to the night stand with a glass surface.
The kimber ultra 2, 2nd gen smith 632 and the smith 442 among others don't do well ON some of these surfaces as they don't
do any favor to some of these surfaces.
I prefer not to put my pistola two feet away while pinching a loaf (because of surface interaction) if something happens.(SHTF is
certainly appropriate here)

IMO the 19/23 is too big considering the TX heat and the thin clothes that goes with that.  26/27 would be preferable but best would be if Glock came out with a single stack 9mm

Go!


when i moved to Houston in 1992, I brought my Glock 19, a j-frame, and a pistol-gripped 870 with a mag extension, until i could get the rest of my stuff shipped.

As a yankee, you will probably sweat alot. So, I'd go with a plastic fantastic like a glock 19 or SW MP.

M&P Pro 4 1/2". If you're skinny you won't have any trouble carrying it. Think of it as a G19 Gen6 or 7.
