Picked mine up today at the local gun range/gun shop after my 48 hour period elapsed. The range was crazy busy today and I had to wait 75 minutes to get a lane. I wouldn't have waited that long if I weren't going to be putting my first rounds through my first hand gun, but it was worth the wait.

I had a blast with it. Its amazing how quickly you can go through 100 rounds, even when I was shooting pretty slowly/methodically. Glad that I've got much more ammo on the way from a low cost source!

Happy with my choice so far, looking forward to my next time on the range with it!

Hey, JW (Sconnie), WELCOME to the Forum, and Congratulations on your Glock!

Yep, ammo is going to be a consideration. Thankfully, 9x19mm ammo is (relatively) cheap!

Again, WELCOME!

Ammo cost was certainly a significant consideration when looking at caliber. Plenty of good deals available online and if I forget to pick up/order ammo my range sells decent target loads for $15 per 50. Certainly more than I'd pay online, even after shipping, but I can live with that when I get caught low on target rounds.

Thanks for the welcome, trying to figure out when my next range trip is coming up. I'm going to be traveling out of state a bit so time will be precious the next few weeks!

In Illinois its a 72 hour wait period for handguns, and a 24 hour wait period for shotguns/rifles...

Look around at local stores at ammo prices. WalMart usually sells 50 rounds for around $10.

Well, I did my first mod. Butt plug (behave) that I bought off of EBay. So I'm not totally stock anymore! (g)

Just ran another 100 rounds through the new Gen 4 G19, with the help of my 13 year old son that is. Not one issue or problem. And we shot pretty well too! This time we shot 50 Blazers and 50 Black Bears that I got from CheaperThanDirt.com at a great deal.
