    I'm Seth and I just purchased my first Glock.

    I went into the shop dedicated to purchasing a G23 gen 4 but ended up buying a G19 gen 4 after an employee at Cheaper Than Dirt turned me onto the 19 at Law Enforcement Discount (at $140 off their price, $240 under MSRP).

    So I highly recommend CTD if you're around Texas or online at if you're a LOE/Military/First Responder.

    So I really love Glock. I've fired only 200 rounds out of it. I was using some dirt, cheap Winchester white box and it performed excellent. Couldn't love it any more! However, my wife got a Ruger SR40c and it didn't like the ammo too much. I know Rugers come from the factory all greased up so I took it home and cleaned it first. It had a few failures after putting a few rounds through it.

    So all in all, my wife and I fired for our CCW a couple months ago, she went Ruger .40S&W, I went Glock 9mm. I'll be carrying smaller caliber handgun than her, lol. And I'm a new happy Glock owner.

    -Sniper, I'm definitely open to mods in the future, but I'm keeping it stock for now.

    -jimmy, I was planning on that, but I couldn't resist the discount they were offering me on the 19. I really wanted a 23 and had looked at conversions with that. I'm happy with the 19 now.

    How do you like that sr40c? Im thinking of picking one up with my tax return.

    Love the SR40c. Just bought it for my wife. I've taken it to the range for a few times. It feels really good, I fire with great accuracy. The feel of the grip isn't quite wide enough for my taste but I really like this gun. Fired about 300 rounds and no issues at all, and I was firing with the Winchester white box, the $15 stuff at walmart.

    My only complaint is very minimal, you have to have a pen tip or something pointy to take out the take-down pin. That's not really anything about to complain about, lol. I recommend it.

    My wife just left for Dallas to go to a photographers' workshop and she's carrying for the first time today. I'm so proud and have some sense of security!
