Nice. The 10mm is a hoss of a round. I like lots of guns, but if I knew I was going to be in a fight for my life (and I couldn't bring a rifle!) I would want a Glock, bar none.
Thats great man. I have owned (7) different models of Glocks.

A 9mm may expand, but a .45 will never shrink.

This country needs more family trees that produce quality lumber instead of socialist freeloading nuts.

I agree with SSS, MSGT, the price on the glock is a steal. get the hicap mags before the ban. there are still a lot oout there. I remember these mags costing 100 bucks per mag during the ban. enjoy the glocks.

Enjoy it! I got my wife's G23 sitting right here beside me as I type this. While I do love my EDC, sometimes it's nice to swap it out for something just little bit smaller, and that still has a very nice mag size.

I'm jealous of you Glock types’. My last Glock was the G36 and like an idiot I sold it! Now, I’m thinking of the G19 or G27 w/11rds, if I can only manage to get my little rat hands around it.

I fired 100 rounds through hubby's G19 today, and I still can't get excited over it. After shooting a couple mags worth I got used to the odd feel of the grip in my hand.
I fired fairly rapid, not quite fast enough to be considered rapid-fire but close. 28 out of 100 outside of the black
Most shots were clustered, but not good enough to me my standards,I'm glad I don't carry it!
I'll give it another chance and see if it grows on me and if I can get an acceptable performance out of it, and out of myself.
Meanwhile I'll stick with my wheelies.

+1, I love my G19, my 1911 has been stuck in the safe for 2 months & counting.
If you wanted to improve the grips on the Glock try the Houge Handall, its brilliant.

A Glock Story:
When I got back into shooting a little over a year ago and for preparation for my CHL test, I joined the local range. I went the first day to shoot and all I had was a S&W Sigma 9mm. I asked owner what he thought about it and he said, no, you need a Glock 17. So I bought it and started shooting it and hated it. It shot to the left and I didn't like the recoil. Long story short, over the last year I have been through probably about 25 pistols, took some lessons, and am probably getting where I need to be. I looked at the last gun show at a Glock 19 and really liked how it felt and the price and availability of magazines. But I still remembered the time with the Glock 17.
Today at the range the owner let me try out one of the range guns, a Glock 19. It kicked butt. I could not believe it. I guess I have come full circle. Well lets see, anyone want to buy a slightly used XD, an HK, a CZ, maybe a Sig!!!
The G23 is the BEST gun i have ever shot/owned and I have shot more guns than I can count
