    New #2

    Ok, OK, OK, OK..... I crossed over to the dark side stepped back and crossed over again, I hope to stay indefinitely. I did a trade today, I just got my G23 on 1 July and was hooked.... Two weeks to the day, my Beretta.... a good shooter, succumbed to this force and lost the battle. I now have a NIB Gen 3 G19 w/ RTF2 grips. I hope to get to the range this weekend to put them both thru their paces. I'm insane in the membrane

    Very addicting, I could taste it as I was driving there.

    @DIABLO9489, I feel good about the trade. The shop I go to makes you feel very comfortable.

    I use girls friends G23 and it's a real soft shooter! I've shot the G19 before and couldn't feel that much of a difference. With the right ammo, like Ranger T, the G19 would have a count advantage that would make the 40.cal round not much if any of an advantage with well placed shots. Nice collection you got.

    No "beef" with the Beretta(I carried an M9 along with an M4 in Iraq),but always felt it was a BIG gun for the caliber it was. IMHO the G19 is the ideal platform for the 9x19 cartridge. It's 'little' brother the G26 is great too(I carried the most of the 2). Good Luck with those Glocks!

    First off, Thanks to you and the others before you who protected our freedoms, and thanks to those who are and will do so in the future.

    Yes the Beretta was a heavy pistol, I had no problem with it being a big person. I just wanted a change, I fought it and lost....

    Filling a glass with the Kool Aid and "toasting" your choice/purchases of The Glock platforms. You won't regret it!!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
