2nd gen glock 19
 
Is it worth keeping? I payed 475 for it, just wondering if that was a good deal or not. I dont mind shooting it but would much rather have a .40 or a 45.

About a perfect sized gun for a good general purpose pistol. Can be carried, can be concealed, still has a good sight radius, still has a useful sized grip, that doesn't require finger extensions. A comfortable caliber that feeds reliably, and is sufficient for defense, yet common and affoardable.

If you are OK with Glocks in general they are good.

If you're in a state that still has a gun ban in effect, Yes. All of my glocks are Gen 2 and all have 15 rnd mags. They carry a premium. Newer generation glocks are getting easier to get hold of around here but they are limited to 10 rounds.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

Good sturdy pistol. If you have no reason to part with it keep it.

As for the "rather have 40 or 45" ....9 mil is good round period. Do the others have more stopping power? Maybe? That's a whole different conversation.

The 19 is reliable, parts are readily available, concealable, holds 15 in the mag, and 9 is cheap in comparison to the 40 or 45

I think you overpaid a bit but I don't know where you live---
I just bought a new Gen3 Mdl 19 for $500 but that's in East Texas---
Either way a 19 is a great multi purpose handgun IMO :cool:
Keeping mine :)

Nothing wrong with a Gen 2 Glock as long as it feels good in your hand. It doesn't have the finger grooves and light rail of Gen 3, 4 but that's not a dealbreaker. I have a Gen 2 G22 that's a fine gun but the G19 and G23 compact is just the right size most of the time.

Nothing wrong with 9mm as there are very good self defense loads and cheap range ammo. I do prefer the larger calibers too but you don't have to worry about 9mm as long as you can find it. (That's a big advantage of 40S&W, it's easy to find even when 9mm is scarce.)

Pricewise, it's hard to say if you did ok, it depends on its condition. Usually Gen 2s go a little cheaper, especially LE trade-ins.

In Massachusetts it's a $600-$700 gun all day long. Lol

Sorry, im in iowa. I like the feel of the gun. I just figured a simlar looking .45 from another company, felt more solid in my hands.

With that said, the glock to me feels right in my hands so maybe ill keep it.

I guess reason im wondering is friend has a savage 30-06 in all stainless with a stainless scope. wanting to trade.

Depends on which you want/need most---
Personally I don't think Savage makes a $500 rifle :p

Keep your Glock and buy a 45 you like
