Why not, anything in particular?

What are the implications, or negative ramifications of reloads or led rounds?

550 is kinda high for a used 19 with just a couple extra mags. I'm part of the 9 is fine crowd.

And Glock is an excellent first gun imho . The only thing is on that gun your finger is your saftey. Ofcourse it has the trigger saftey that activates the firing pin safety. But if your finger is on that trigger that gun will fire. 115gr gold dots have good penetration good expansion and are reasonably priced.

Id try to get the guy down to 500 or lower for a used 19 though

How much can I expect to pay for a new 19?
I looked at one yesterday and the price tag was $609.00. Came with the standard 3 mags, cleaning rod, and plastic case. Is this reasonable?

I'm thinking along the same lines as Cane. A revolver. Intermediate barrel length. But one in .357 Magnum that you can shoot .38's from. Maybe even one of the more than 6-round versions...

I've seen the g19 new for about $580. You should be able to talk that $609 down a bit. Congrats and happy shopping! Have fun and be safe

Generally, most manufacturers print a disclaimer which refers

directly to "reloaded" ammo. I'll assume this is that to which you refer.

They are trying to protect themselves from liability, as reloaded

rounds are beyond their scope of control. Generally speaking,

reloaders are conscientious, careful and painstaking; following

set proper steps, and measuring powder scrupulously. Their

efforts are generally rewarded with higher end ammo quality,

for about the price of WWB ammo.


Worst case scenario, some goober with more money

than brains buys a bunch of gear, has no instruction

or guidelines, and doesn't bother to get, or read, any

manuals, with predictably disastrous results.



Lead rounds tend to distort more upon contact,

are heavier than jacketed ammo, and are hazardous,

to your health in the long term, if hand-loaded in large

quantities, without proper safeguards.
