Default New glock owner ...

I just recently bought a gen 3 glock 19 with 150 rounds of ammo and 2 magazines for 290$.

This is my first and only glock. Is there anything anyone recommends in changing out or upgrading ?

It's hard to know what you like/don't like until you shoot. I recommend at least 500-1000 rounds. If you don't know upgrades could just be a waste of money.

What I would do? New sights I hate stock glock sights. 3.5 spring. Extended slide release.

Good advice +1, new sights, extended mag, slide stop, lots of ammo

Leave it alone, remember one in the pipe is serious business. No external safety. Pretty light trigger. Be careful.

Night sights is all I do to mine; shoot, shoot, and then shoot some more!

That sounds like a GREAT deal. You got a "steal" for that price. Congrats man. Btw, you don't really need to twerk anything with the 19. It's a great gun, especially the 3rd gen.
