Hallo my name is Johan (Grobbie), and from Groblersdal. South-Africa.

I have aquired me a Glock 19, after all the prescribed stuff was done!
And own it now for 3 months, I make use of a IMI defence holster for consealed carry, wich is compulsery by law.

I was previously involved in law-enforcement (South-African Police) for 17 years. The Glock was a new mindset for me, as (a) I was not carrying or ownning by that matter a gun for a couple of years . (b) The saftey features of the Glock?

Let me explain .
I releid on a saftey catch on a weapon for many years. In my career I made use of various 9mm pistols . Walther P38, CZ 75, Berretta 92 F, Z88.Mainly for work and self-defence.

The Glock made me realise safe carrying and using the gun is possible without a traditional saftey catch.
There is for me 2 golden rules a). Finger of the trigger until engageing. b)Now the status of the weapon, one up or not?

Thank you for the oppertunity to join the forum.

Groete Johan

Welcome from North Carolina!

Since you have had some weapons training, I'd say carry the G19 with a loaded chamber. You know to keep your finger off the trigger until your ready to fire, that is your main safety.

What type of bullet/ammo will you use in your G19? Just wondering.

Hey everyone!

I'm also for South Africa! Great place to live... But good to have a gun...

Nice to see people from across the ocean carrying and experiencing crime and all that... Makes me feel like I don't live in the wild wild west...

I have a gen 3 G19 which I got in 1999. Shot plenty through it and it is still in perfect condition. Definately carry in condition 1!

Also got a RONI G1 to make it a carbine.. Very cool...

Anyways.. Welcome Grobbie... Nice to see another Vaalie here!
