I’ve got a couple Glocks and a couple Taurus’s in the safe. Never had a problem with any of them. Neither are my first choice as carry, everyday weapons, but they do what I ask of them. They go bang when the trigger is pulled and I can hit the intended target with them.
My EDC weapons are older firearms I’ve had for decades and know them down to the pins and screws to be dependable.
Colt 1911A1, Smith & Wesson model 25. Colt SAA, Walther P-38, Walther PPK are the usual choices. And sometimes, if the feral hogs are back, I carry a S&W M500 out around the farm. Heavy and powerful, yes, but still easier than toting around a long gun.
