Default New to glock

I got the craving for another 9mm. I have a beretta 92fs. Wanted another 9mm small to carry so I bought my first glock. It's a 19 gen 4. I put 150rds thru it with no problems. I'm very happy with it.

It's one of the 4 back straps that come with the gen 4. I haven't tried them all yet to see which one I like the best.

You could not have chosen a better handgun for the stated purpose. Shoot the heck out of it, it will only get better.

I have never fired my G19 with one of the backstraps on the gun.

The G19 is very easy to carry. I don't see how he could have got a better firearm for his stated purpose than a G19. My G19 is so easy to carry I frequently fall asleep on the couch with the G19 holstered.

If you notice Glock's don't have many corners, everything about them is rounded. While the rounded design is not eye catching, it allows the shooter to carry a larger gun without the gun poking the user.

The way my body is built it is easier for me to carry a 7 or 8 inch gun than a 6 inch gun. I have to pocket carry the 6" gun because it pokes me in the hip. The longer gun goes above my hip where there is a perfect place for the stock/grip.

In this photo I was working in the yard. I had worked up a sweat. The same T shirt easily conceals the G19.

Default Cool...

I have the same one (though I have modded mine)

excellent carry holster - the safariland with ALS. put the gun in and it STAYS..no one can pull it out. Grab your gun and flick the little thumb switch and pop..comes out like it was never held

If you ever decide to UPGRADE it

The DPM Recoil Spring kit - heavy duty recoil spring and steel rod - slips right in where the stock one goes - reduced recoil ALOT and wont let the slide bang the frame

Ultimate Pyramid Trigger system from Glockstore - Gives you the rounded titanium safety plunger, skeletonized striker and of course, drop in trigger assembly. Makes the gun fire like a single action hammer fired. Pull on the safety on the trigger, and BANG,,,thats about all the trigger travel...amazing difference.

I got mine almost $100 off on a Memorial Day sale...who knows, they may have a labor day sale...LOL

There is even a video to show you how to put it all together, step by step.

Congrats...sorry if I got carried away...

That sounds unsafe to carry. The Glock trigger is what it is for a reason...

I bought my gun new with the race connector and 3 1/2 lb springs. It didn't take long before I put the 5 1/2 lb springs back in the gun.

If I hated the Glock trigger I would have bought another gun. I like the stock Glock trigger, it is much like a two stage trigger for a rifle.
