There is no such thing as perfection, Glocks are machines not miracles, machines break. Shoot it dirty without any oil and see what happens, trust me.

with that being said, I own a gen3 19 and love it, never cared for the 17, the grips are different, hold them both and choose from that. They are both equally good.

If you don't mind me asking, why are you dead set on Glock?

I bought my oldlady a Glock 17 and she likes it. She uses it for a carry gun, and i carry it sometimes. Actually i have it on my hip right now. Its accurate and cheap to shoot. We have ran 1500 rounds throught it so far and no problems. Its an alright gun for carry also if you plan on doing that also, its just a little big, but it is light. And it works everytime you pull the trigger.

Glocks are good guns, but they aren't the only good gun like some people seem to think. How much do you want to spend?

Which one feels better in your hand? Don't limit yourself to the Glocks. Try an S&W M&P if you can.

Being new to guns, I'd suggest finding a rental range and try out as many as you can or at least a gun store that will let you handle some. Don't make up your mind without exploring all the options first. Glocks are all fine and dandy but you may come across something that fits you and your needs better.

Glocks are very reliable and will forgive someone if they don't get cleaned unlike other guns. I like other brands also bur for a carry gun and defense weapon a Glock will never let you down. And Glock is the closest you can come to to perfection.

Sorry Matt but there are no absolutes in anything, especially guns. To say they will NEVER let you down is just not true. It's just a machine/tool and they can and will malfunction and wear out, like anything else ever made by man.

Glock is a excellent beginners gun. No offense with the beginner reference. Easy breakdown, great ergonomics and reliable as any gun ever made. Besides, you will find 5Xs the accessories for a Glock as you will anything else. If you have a military or LEO background GT Distributors has the best prices I have ever seen on new Glocks.

+1 for Glock. Also Glock has good resale value. Sold my G19 Gen 4 for $475 last month as i got the new FDE.

I dont know about the new gen 4's but the gen 3 G19 was a little too big in the grip for my hand. I switched to a Ruger SR9c after my wife let me shoot the one I bought for her. We now have his and hers SR9c's. I still have a G36 which has a smaller grip.

Good advise

I have a Glock and love it, but I have other guns that I love also. Figure out what you want it to do and what fits your hand the best then start renting. This will hopefully save you some money in the long run.
