Okay, I've been a diehard 1911 shooter for years so this was sort of a shock to my system. Lately it seems that carrying the Mil-Spec all day has really been wearing me out and after a day at the range my back would be screaming from absorbing all the recoil (medical problems).
I drove out to my local gun shop yesterday to handle a G19 and check prices. Talked to the owner and the only one he had in stock was a brown frame, not bad looking at all but not what I expected. I've bought about ten handguns from him over the years so he said he'd make me a deal if I wanted it. The thing fit my grip perfectly and pointed 100% naturally - BIG difference from the 30, 36 and 10mm's I'd checked out last time! He knocked off about $40 so I went ahead and put it on layaway.
I've really never had anything against Glocks in general, just never found one that felt good in my hands ... until yesterday. I plan on adding a set of Tru-glo TFO night sights when it comes home and then stocking up on ammo and spare mags. I expect this will quickly become my primary carry weapon.
To all my fellow 1911 fanatics, I'm keeping my Mil-Spec as a home defense weapon along with my Mossbergs. Still prefer the .45 but necessity dictates I switch to a polymer 9mm for carry. BTW, this is all that Brommeland guy's fault - he talked me into it so ... blame him! (Thanks buddy!)
