    It finally happened to me

    Two months ago I sold my XD Service 9mm because I had shot a friend's G19 and fell in love with it. Well, Friday I was looking around Armslist.com and found a guy selling a brand new G19 Gen 3. I had been holding out because I wanted to find one through private sale, but preferred it be relatively new. In box with three mags and all of the paperwork, spent casing, cleaning rod and brush. Met up with him and left with an empty wallet and a smile on my face. Can't wait to go spend some quality time with her at the range. Now to start looking for a new holster!

    now on my 4th and 5th Glock 19. What happened to the first three is a long story, and won't bore you with details....but women were involved. Nuff said.

    Congrats on the new G19, if you don't like it just PM me and I'll be glad to take it off your hands.

    Congrats! I'm looking to buy my first Glock next month for my Birthday. I'm leaning more towards the G30 or 36.

    Another giddy GLOCK 19 owner? What is the deal with those pistols?

    Congrats on your new pistol. I hear they are pretty decent firearms with above average reliability.

    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Got my first G19 the Friday before Christmas. It's my EDC unless they outlaw it.
