Hello guys, how was your day? I'm a new guy and I just got my CHL in this month. I need you guys give me some advise to Carry My Hand Gun.
Be honest, I'm so confused about G17 and PPX M1 safety issue. Who has carried them? I always heard G17 has accidental discharged from the TV or newspaper. What about truth? which one more safety?
I guess I will put on those guns in my car on most time, but when I carry anyone of them that I don't want have problem.
Thank you guys

all i know is that i have never had any problems from my 17, I feel that either a 26 or 19 would be a better ccw IMHO

There is no safety issue with either one; however, you do need to know how to handle a weapon IE don't touch the trigger until you are ready to fire. On the G17 you can install a heavier trigger if it makes you feel better.

keep your gun loaded in a secure holster and everything will be fine. that's all you need to know along with the 4 gun rules.

Keep your booger hook off the bang button. Re-holstering with your finger on the trigger=sore foot!

Follow the four rules, take a beginner training course from a pro. Best money you'll spend.

If you buy to large a pistol you will never carry it, if you carry on the Waiste the length of the butt and the thickness are the most difficult part to conceal. A friend of mine recently got his CHL and started trying to carry a Glock 19. He was really surprised by the bulk and how he was continually hitting things with his holstered Glock. He has since bought a Glock 42 and finds pocket carry works best for him. A Glock 42 or other small gun on your person is better than a larger gun you'll never carry. My friend still carries his Glock 19 depending on what he is doing but in the hot summer months the smaller pistols are easier to conceal. In very cold climates where you dress in layers a small gun in a coat pocket can be much quicker into action than a gun buried on your waiste. You have to adjust your attire according to your carry pistol/revolver.

I suggest you try what works for other people your friends with and see if they'll let you try their system.

Here is the biggest safety issue .... keep it off the trigger till you are ready to fire.

I've heard of a accidental discharge when some idiot hung his firearm from a coat hook through the trigger guard. I have no idea what kind of firearm it was but that's just plain dumb.

Get a good quality holster...and don't just stick it in your pants...like on tv!!

Also, If you were me, G17 and PPXM1 which one you will choice? Thanks

Here's a little tip that I think make people more comfortable about carrying a Glock with a round chambered.

Take your Glock w/o the mag, rack the slide to cock the striker, now put the loaded mag in (for correct carry weight) and now carry it around the house in whatever form of carry you plan on using. Move around, sit down just as normal, practice drawing and re-holstering.

If the trigger doesn't accidentally get pulled during all this...then you should be fine and your mind more at ease.

IMHO & YMMV

I would also not leave it loose in a glovebox, gym bag, purse, etc. without some type of hard holster around it.

Also, be cautious when reholstering.

If you are truly, truly worried, purchase a revolver, a "double action only" (DAO) with a longer trigger arc, or a pistol with a safety.

If I got a Walther it would be the PPQ M1. Between your choices I would get the 17.

Glocks fire when the trigger is pulled. Simple as that.
