Yeah thought it was strange but had to ask. Told them I wanted a 19 and they started writing me up for a gen3 and so I asked if they carried the gen4 and they said Glock was actually talking of discontinuing them. Who knows. I will be perfectly happy with my gen3 either way!
Yeah I had to order my Gen3 but said it would only take a couple days. Probably will be here tomorrow I am guessing. To be honest, I shot the Gen4 once and didn't notice too much of a difference besides the annoying texture on the grip. Recoil felt about the same to me. I have seen some gripes about the ejector and seen some highspeed video of the casing being tossed around inside the gun before being ejected out occasionally causing it to get stuck. I figured I would rather pay less money on an older model that I have shot before and know has a good track record.
Yes! I feel totally confident in my decision. I have shot a lot of handguns and only ever felt truly comfortable with a Glock in my hand. So Glock it had to be! I do have to say though I did not like the new texture on the Gen4's.
