    First Glock just joined the family

    Picture Darth Vader breathing and saying - "your journey to the Dark Side is now complete".

    After years of bad mouthing Glocks and singing the praises of the 1911, I have travelled to the dark side and purchased a Glock 19. I feel so dirty!

    My friends are still giving me grief since they have had to listen to me for years trashing their decision to carry "Tupperware".

    After spending the last three days shooting every kind of jacketed ammo I could lay my hands on and waaaaaay more than I can actually afford, the result is that his gun will eat ANYTHING!!

    Crow doesn't taste that bad after all.

    Nothing wrong with a Glock. They are a utility gun in every sense of the term.

    Congratulation, enjoy and be safe.

    Good move! You will enjoy your new Glock.

    Welcome to the world of Glock. The only problem you have now is...which one to buy next??

    Same here. I was a Glock hater, until I got one. Enjoy.

    I used to be the same way. I never did like Glocks, until I bought my 19. I love them now and my 19 is my new primary carry.

    I think you've used most of the standard phrases: Dark Side, Tupperware, and bad mouthed Glock for years. I did the same thing, but I could never listen to those other key words: Reliable, No FTF or FTE's, dependable, light weight, and easy to carry. I'm sure I forgot one or two.

    Now for the other phrase: You can't buy just one. I have three and I'm trying to figure out what will be the next one. The Glock 19 is a great place to start.

    I still have my Kimber Ultra CDP as my EDC, but I also own two Glocks now...

    Glock? Does Glock make a handgun? Just kidding! Enjoy you're new purchase.

    That's pretty cool because that was my first and maybe last Glock I will purchase, I enjoy shooting mine. Hope you have fun and give us a range report.

    Take a shower, the feeling will pass.

    As far as Blocks go, you picked the best one, IMHO. I have one Block. There are many like it, but mine is mine. It is a Block 19.

    Congrats on one of the finest 9mm pistols around. No matter what gun I try to carry, I always come back to my G19.
