Today it is Glock .45gap's or Sig's that I would carry.
They are known to go band when you need them too.
In Texas Leo's use mostly Glock's or a few Sig's.
Use what the pro's do. They know what works.
Your story of Smith autos is always the same.
My Dad had a M39 no-dash.
From 1970 to his death.
I used it for a number of years with no problems.
From there, I owned a ton of Smith autos.
Still have a bunch.
The 39s and 59s finally broke the revolver hold on US law enforcement.
Glock is just a johnny-come-late.
