Man, I have a heck of a lot of really great pistols, mostly 1911's along with a variety of other types. And, yes, I agree on every point about the G19. Incredible combination of high capacity, stone reliability, excellent accuracy, easy shootability, convenient compactness, durability, economy, defense prowess... it is the perfect combination of all of these factors. Of all the guns I have available to carry, my G19 is carried by far the most... stoked with Gold Dot 124 gr. +P ammo.
