Not really. I've shot all those. Nice guns. I can understand people wanting to shoot them if they never have.
Mushsashi said not to have a favorite weapon and be acquainted with all weapons.
I shoot a variety of firearms for fun. A Glock is a good choice if you're going to a fight. If you're shooting for fun it doesn't make a difference what you shoot.
I am ex- leo sergeant. and ER nurse. Many leo's are pro second amendment, as am I. Go for it apply, don't get too dissapointed if it doesn't work here in NJ . if you have time and money push with a good attorney. Maybe a call to an attorney like Evan Nappen would give you some insight as to what is in front of you. I as many people here want to see you succeed. Good luck.
