So after approximately 9 months of having my Beretta PX4 Compact 9mm cuddling me to sleep every night I decided to go back to my trusty Glock 23. I've been debating this for a while now and I'll explain my theories and ideas I use choosing a home defense tool. My guns are kept in a safe at all times and when I am not home my HD Gun is in a safe also. However when I am home my HD Gun is generally accessible (not in a safe) with 5 seconds but without one in the chamber due to having children in the house. (I'll clarify this by stating it's unloaded, up high (7ft) and its in my view and if an adult isn't in the room it comes with me) Now my reason for swapping. I love the PX4 for HD because the way it shoots but this is where I decided it's not worth it. I would leave the gun with the safety on and unloaded. God forbid a reasons creeps up to use it the I have to rack the slide and then disengage the safety and then I have the long, hard D/A pull. Very unlikely to N.D. Here's what I didn't like about it. It has a safety that in a panic situation I might forget to flip off. Hence my reason for switching HD Guns. ADDED AFTER POST- I thought about leaving the safety off but I don't like how it leaves it in SA. To me it's like cocking a revolver in a HD situation which everything a read is a "No Go" Now to the Glock. It did have a 3.5# connector but I removed it and went back to the standard factory connector. My reasoning was if I was ever involved in a HD situation I didn't want that to come up that I modified the trigger on the weapon. Here's what I'm looking on opinions for: If you had to decide between the PX4 compact 9mm vs the Glock 23 (40), which would you go with and why? Now I'm sticking to my guns( Pun intended) and keeping the stock connector in there. Do you think I'm over thinking this and why? Thanks for your opinions
