Default Glock 19

Bought my first Glock!! My choice was by popular demand- everyone has always held this gun in hi praise!! Wanted a high capacity carry gun, that is reliable and problem free!! Anything I need to know, other than to just enjoy?? Will it eat all ammo from range to self defense!! Anyone recommend a good carry holster, not to pricey!! She is a Gen. 3 Glock19! Paid $499 for her!! If I got highly ripped off, please keep it to yourself! Lol anyway any solid experiences and advice would be appreciated!! Thanks!!

I got my Glock 19 about six months ago and no problems.

I put a set of green Tru Glow sights on it and made a world of difference shooting IDPA. While I was at the gun shop getting my sights put on, one of the employees handed me his G-19 to check out his trigger job the gunsmith did. WOW! So I had to leave my gun there to get the 3.5 pound trigger kit installed. For $45.00 it was a great investment.

I use an Alessi and Comp-Tac holster for my Glock. I use the Alessi (about $150.00)for CCW and it takes a few months to get one after the order. The Comp-Tac (about $75.00) works much better for IDPA games and I feel it's safer to reholster so many times.

Mine has not been picky in ammo. Just don't use lead bullets they foul the barrel too quickly and can cause high pressure spikes. Otherwise, jut enjoy it.

Picked up a new inexpensive leather Holster for her!! I think I'm going to like!! One think about carrying a bigger gun you have to find a specific spot to carry comfortable and without printing!! For me it's about 2 o'clock as the holster clip lines up above my pocket seem on my shorts!! Anything to right to much printing, anything to the left to uncomfortable to set!!

I try to stay away from steel case ammo with mine...actually with all my striker fired weapons. Talon grips are great and it's hard to beat a Crossbreed Super Tuck IWB holster, I like the horsehide, wears the best

Do you mind me asking in what shop you had the sights and trigger kit put in? I believe I may have done both for you, personally! Lol!

Good price. I would watch some James Yeager videos on you tube about his favorite pistol, a Glock 19. I am not a Yeager groupie, but he does have some great advice about how to care and feed a Glock pistol.

People dislike him because he has strong opinions on things.

Hickok45 is also worth watching for Glock info.

Enjoy your Glock. The 19 is one model I am still looking for. I have the same frame in my 23C & 32.

Hickok will pick up a damn gun he has never touched with half inch barrel and hit a gong at 50 yards. I say Hickok vs. chuck Norris.
