Default Why I am here.

As a new member of this board I would like to indroduce myself and say hi to all here. I work in LE and even though I don't claim to be a know it all I do know a little. Myself along with a another co-worker started a department wide transition from the Beretta 92F to the Glock 17/19 seven years ago. It was not by chance or "the cheapest deal" that my department now carries Glocks loaded with 127gr Winchester Ranger rounds. Much thought/reasearch went into that process, not to mention new policies to boot. Also, we held back on the .40 craze, instead focusing more on training with the 9mm.

Honestly, I was a big 1911 guy for many years and it took me a long time to come around and understand the whole Glock concept. Heck, I quickly sold the first Glock 19 I bought back in 1992! But now the Glock, for me at least, is the ultimate combat weapon. Like my siganature; A gun is simply a tool to keep us alive. And the Glock fits that bill perfectly. Thank you.

What's wrong with the grip on your G19?

Nothing. It had a grip reduction from Robar. Still has a 15 rd capacity. Just smaller for easier concealment. It's a second gen so no finger grooves.

If a gun is simply a tool then you have made a great choice. I personally don't subscribe to that mantra but understand the logic.

Welcome to the FTF

Nice grip reduction, I was thinking about having the grip on my 19 reduced or stippled
