All your thoughts and reviews about the G19 will be really helpfull.
What made you go with the gen 4 over the gen 3? The gen 3's feel great other than the damn finger grooves to me. Is there really a difference in recoil?bunk22 said:I'm a big fan of the G19 size and of course the 9mm. I do have a G23 that I shoot both .40 and .357 Sig through and I have started to carry the .357 Sig at times but the G19 and 9mm is my favorite still. It's the perfect size for me, conceal wise, holds 15+1, easy to shoot, inexpensive target ammo which means you can shoot it a lot. Until recently, I had a Gen 3 G19 but I prefer the Gen 4's though I've kept my Gen 3 G17 for now. I use my Gen 17 mags to shoot and carry with my G19. Overall, just a great gun IMO. My target ammo is generally WWB 115 gr as it's the least expensive around here, $22.79 per box of 100 at Walmart. Tula ammo is cheaper but don't trust it and Federal is close, $11.47 I think per box. My Self-defense ammo is Speer GD 124 p+ and 115gr standard.
For me, I like the Gen 4 with no back strap, it's the perfect fit for my hand. That is the main reason. The second is the larger magazine release, don't have to change my grip. Those are the main reasons, the grip texture I do like but not a deal breaker. I didn't see a difference in recoil between the two. The finger grooves don't bother me at all so not a factor.What made you go with the gen 4 over the gen 3? The gen 3's feel great other than the damn finger grooves to me.

I agree. Start with the G19, because it's true (like he said): you will eventually own more than one Glock.chuckds said:The 19 is a perfect "first Glock". A good CC, cheap ammo and accurate. If your like most people you will eventually own more than 1 Glock, a 19 is a good start.
My G19 G4 has the 043 RSA. How do I know if the ejector is the updated one? Tx.BabaaBooey said:Im no gun expert, but i own the g19 gen 4 and love it dude. I have about 800 rounds in it of various brands without one hiccup!!! Im about 6'2" and 188 pounds, so i wouldnt try to conceal it in summer time...im in the market for a pocket 380 for easy carry.
All the initial issues with the gen 4 are resolved. Make sure it has the 043 spring and the updated ejector.
I put the large backstrap on it the other day and then wondered why i didnt have it on from the beginning,,,fits me so much better...sometimes i regret not getting the 26, but i figured the 26 isnt that much easier to conceal than the 19 and the 19 is super fun to shoot.
I was jumpy too at first, then I shot a 45 and a 10 mm. Now my 19 feels like a bb gun. I think it helped me calm down. I'm only about a 500 rd shooter. At least I don't close my eyes anymore!cop2b said:Shot the g19 Gen 4 today love it! Gotta work on my trigger pull and to be less jumpy.
