New Member, New Glock
Hi All, I have been reading everything I can find for the last couple of months, as well as every Glock video on youtube. I debated for quite some time between the .40 S&W and the 9mm. I finally settled on the Glock 19 and picked it up at a gunshow last weekend, ($459.00) and was able to hit the range a couple of times this past week. I have shot 500, flawless rounds and have never been this acurate with a hangun, EVER!!!! I LOVE it.

I also picked up a 33 round mag. My 13 year old son is also pretty fond of it as well. :D

Thanks for all input which helped to make this awesome purchase decision.

Welcome vakers. You will take a bit of flak from the 1911 crowd for buying a Glock but it's all in fun. BTW, why the 9 instead of the 40 just wondering?

I went wth the 9mm because at one time I owned a Smith Sigma 9mm and was really comfortable shooting it. Several articles that I read said that the 19 was the #1 sold Glock. I also like to shoot alot so the price difference in the ammo was also a factor. I have a 1911 for home protection so I'm covered there plus I'm now researching other Glock models for my next purchase. I need to stop buying guns and get my CHL........:o
