    Glock 19: Perfect

    I've been to the range twice with it this week. It's amazingly accurate and concealable. On problem is that my thumb impedes the slide locking back after the last round. I'm used to this with my Sigs, but I thought a Glock wouldn't do it. Live and learn.

    Great carry pistol.

    The G19 is as close as we can get to perfection IMO. There are others that do too, but the 19 is hard to beat.

    The G19 is a fantastic weapon. I've put about 3000 rounds thru mine. I would venture if I only had 1 gun for everything- its the 19.

    +1 to Glock perfection

    I agree with the term that every gun owner should have at least one G19.

    I didn't know why people were saying that until I got my G19.

    Had both the Springer XD and the G19. Sold the Springer. Kept the Glock. Have put about a thousand rounds downrange with only one FTE (operator error, btw).

    I'm a G19 fan, and believe it is their best model, if forced to pick.

    The G19 is by far the most boring gun I have ever had the pleasure of shooting. It never jams, and pretty much hits where I point. While I see other folks with expensive 1911s and H&K pistols at the range trying to clear malfunctions, I'm standing there blasting away with my G19, and I run out of practice ammo way before they do.

    I've got somewhere around 15,000 rounds through mine with no malfunctions (other than those deliberately induced with dummy rounds).

    ain't that the truth...at a class last year I saw 4 high-end production 1911's (one Kimber, one Para P-14, one S&W, and a Springer EMP) go down in the first day (a couple before lunch)...the 12 Glocks and 2 SIGs in the class worked with boring reliability.

    Awsome. Congrats. A Glock 19 is on my list of things to get before the end of the year. Along with a Glock 26.

    Great choice.

    A long time ago I decided that I will never sell my Ruger GP-100. After purchasing the Glock 19 a little over a year ago, the Glock 19 has been the second gun to be added to that list.

    I have several Glocks. Just got the G19 a couple months ago. It's quickly becoming my favorite for carry, and I think I'll be using it for the GSSF match coming to town next month!

    I've been carrying an OD G19 for roughly a year now. Other than adding TFO night sights and a steel guide rod it's basically stock. I love the light weight, low recoil and high capacity. It prints more than my 1911s but the weight savings makes it a trade off I'm willing to make. Just ran 75 rounds of mixed WWB and DPX through it at the range yesterday, function was flawless and it shoots to point of aim. Can't ask for more than that.
