Everyone has this story, the story about the gun that you wish you had never sold. I’ve sold and traded a decent amount of guns in my time, but not as many as some people. But in that short time, I’ve managed to compile a little list of ones that got away, guns I wish I had never traded or sold. Of all those guns though, there is one I wish I never let go.
I had a Glock 29, the compact 10mm with three 10 round magazines. I loved that gun. I sold it when I moved to Virginia, because I didn’t do my homework on VA’s gun laws, and thought for some reason that DC’s gun laws had influenced Virginia. Obviously, I was wrong, and the price I paid for not doing my homework was losing the single best carry gun I’ve ever owned.
I don’t often sing the praises of Glocks, especially since I’m somewhat known for having a love affair with revolvers, but honestly, this was a fantastic gun. Best carry gun ever. Powerful, compact, accurate, and honestly the 10mm recoil wasn’t really something that bothered me. Every time I go to a gun show, or a gun shop, I’ve got my eyes peeled for a used Glock 29. Honestly, if I ever just decided to sack it and buy another Glock, my experience with the 10mm will probably be a strong influence on me. I won’t get another 10mm, because ammo is super expensive, but I would (and probably will) get the slimline Glock 36 in .45 ACP. What’s not to like? It’s skinny, chambered for my favorite round, I love it.
