    New gun

    Just came back from a range session with my new Glock 19. This is the last new gun purchase, I promise! LOL. Anyway I brought along me Sig P239 to shoot and compare.
    I wanted a Glock for a while now and almost bought one when I was looking at the Sig.
    I have about a 100 rds. thru the Glock and am very impressed. It offers fast follow up shots. Very accurate at combat distances. I love the 15 shot mags. and how light and easy to carry. The only part I don't love is the trigger. Its not horrible but not the best I ever shot either. Overall it is a great gun and would highly recommend to anyone who is looking the best in reliability and ease of shooting.
    Now to the Sig. About the same size as the G19, but also a little heavier. I can shoot this gun as well as the Glock. The G19 seems to be easier to shoot fast, but the Sig is a very accurate gun and easy to hold on target. To me the strong suit of the Sig is the trigger. Best I have ever shot. Maybe thats why the Glock trigger is my only hang up on the G19. ( I have heard the 19 trigger will get better with more rounds).
    These are my two favorite guns. Both are very reliable and very accurate. I shoot both very well. I might give the edge to the G19 because of the greater mag capacity. But i would hate to have to choose if I could only have one. The Sig is better looking gun to me if that means much to you.
    Thumbs up to two great firearms. I am sure I can get some agreement from both sides on that.

    There is a lot that can be done with a Glock trigger. Anything from a little smoothing to radically changing the feel. Try to figure out what type of pull your looking for and then inquire on how or who can do it for you.

    I'd like a solid trigger without the silly bar thing in the middle.

    I am going to just shoot it like it is for awhile. I like the gun so much that I can overlook the trigger. Maybe it will get smoother with some use. Thanks for suggestion.

    You know that part really doesn't bother me. It just doesn't feel smooth enough for my taste. Again compared to the Sig.

    Trigger feel comments...

    I have both the G19 and the P239. I've had the G19 for about 12 years and have put about 5000 rounds through it. I bought the P239 about 2 years ago and have about 1000 rounds through it.

    Like the poster, I can shoot both guns with about the same accuracy, and believe the P239 is a better looking gun. Both guns have been 100% reliable.

    I too am not that crazy about the "feel" of the Glock trigger compared to the Sig. But I believe the true test of the gun should be the results obtained. Since the Glock delivers the same accuracy for me as the Sig, I would rate the Glock trigger as functionally equivalent to the Sig trigger. The "feel" of the Glock trigger may not really matter, since it works well.

    IMO the trigger on the Glock 19 feels 'cheap'. But i love everything else about the gun.

    You are so right. All the really matters is the end result. I can shoot just as well with one as the other. The trigger is certainly not a deal breaker for me.

    Imthduke, Nice gun. Our CCW instructor carries one just like it. Mine is a black standard DA/SA. Like that two tone though!

    Congrats on the new addition to your collection! Glocks have a strong revolver-like reputation for reliability.

    I hated the trigger on my Glock 36 until I installed a Scherer 3-1/2 lb Connector! It's no trigger job but for very little money it sure made a positive difference.

    You always think it's the last purchase don't you? I've said that many times and keep thinking of more to get. They need a program for us...like AA except we'll call it AAA (Ammunition Addicts Anonymous) or something hehe.

    Good Luck to you and a fine purchase.
