The weakest thing about most semi-auto pistols is the magazine. True, your GLOCK 19 may never malfunction but the possibility of a magazine (especially one that has been taken apart before) coming apart and dumping 15 rounds of 9x19 is real. I'm not saying this is common with GLOCK pistols but it can happen.
As far as holsters go my EDC GLOCK 19 rides comfortably in a horsehide Crossbreed Supertuck with the combat cut.
I hope the reloads you are shooting are jacketed bullets, avoid bare lead and especially soft lead bullets in your GLOCK pistol unless you get one of those aftermarket barrells, which I don't believe in.

Thanks again for the info. Anybody use a 33 round mag? How does it work?
Flordia has a 3 day wait period. If you have a permit they call it in on the spot and you can walk out with it.
Long as your happy that is all that counts IMO Glock is over priced and way over rated hype. The older ones were ok in their time.
Since the Gen 3 Glocks are still on sale I decided to bring home a new Gen 3 G-30. My G-19 needs a big brother ( 45 ) I got the last one. too bad it is just a bit wider and won't work in the holster for the 19.
