looking to get one of these guns. never shot either one. i know the kel tec is cheaper but for overall performance and reliablity, which is better. any input is appreciated.

When you or your familiy's life counts, get a Glock. It is faster, safer, rugged, reliable and shoots damn accurately. There is not a law enforcement agency in the world that issues a kel-tec. I own and carry a Glock19, 9mm. I will never change and carry anything but a Glock. Just my 2 cents worth.

Agree with samD

I have a G26, G19, and now G34. I haven't shot the 34 yet (waiting on some new sights). The G26 is a great shooting little gun and with all the weight up top, recoil even with my +P Speer Gold Dot HP or +P Corbon JHP is very manageable. The legendary reliability of the Glock is not hype, and the Glock has very few external switches, buttons, and levers, just like any good combat pistol. If your purpose for getting a pocket rocket is defense, the extra cash is worth it.

Never, Knock the Glock. As long as you can do your part. It is "the" most economical & reliable firearm u may find. I can't work w/the small G26/27 etc.it's all about the hands, but I do love the medium and large frames.
I have had significantly more expensive handguns that were not as reliable. In fact, my trail is littered with them. Glocks just keep on working. I have a G23 version 1, purchased in 1990, rebuilt many times. No, I don't work for them either. I can't pinch pennies when it comes to weapons or ammo for self defense.

Glock hands down. When you need something that is foremost reliable, Glock should be high on your list. Yes, they are ugle little buggers, but function beautifully.

I've talked to a couple of range owners and they reported that KelTecs jam far more often and wear out far more quickly. There's a reason they are so much cheaper. You can tell just by holding the two guns which is made better.

Amen to that! I am 99.99% sure that if I pull my Glock it is going to work. And I hope it works well all 15 times. Like I said before, "How many Law Enforcement Agencies issue, Kel-Tecs and Hi-Points?"

I think they issue both "weapons". It is probably in the report if we infer quite a bit...lol

It makes a little gun, bark big time. I carry the Beretta 21 in a pocket holster at all times, when I don't have my Glock19 on. I feel safe enough with it around the house. Unless some jackass is a mountain on PCP, It will do the job. Hornaday DPX (Deep Penetration Ammo)
