I've been meaning to purchase another Glock 19 after having my favorite piece confiscated by local PD after I broke my left wrist back in April and had to be taken to the ER via ambulance. It was like having a part of me removed but luckily it was returned to me about a week later. Last Wednesday I went to my LGS and was going to buy another Gen 3 Glock 19, but the gun shop clerk let me get a feel for the Gen 4 version. I quickly fell in love with the feel of it with the new texture on the grip and had heard both good and bad things about the Gen 4 Glock pistols. I decided to take a gamble and try the Gen 4 since it was something newer than what I was used to, plus it felt great in hand.
Today I took it to the range and fired 100 flawless rounds and it only made me fall in love with the Gen 4 Glock 19 even more. I'm still not getting rid of my old Gen 3 G19 that helped me obtain my CCW permit back in 2007. Its not always easy to hold when I have sweaty hands but I don't think that'll be a problem with the newer Gen 4. I also like the bigger magazine release. The Glock 19 remains my all time favorite!
