    I am so happy to have my first pistol and I got myself the Glock 19. Looking forward to learn a lot about our gun in this forum. Can't wait to test fire it next week.
    Cheers!

    Mine is stamped "US". Slider is less glossy according to my dealer. Haven't compared with Austrian made yet.

    Oof! Too bad. If you were norcal, I'd love to get together sometime. I'm in Reno (if you ever go to Lake Tahoe, or Burning Man, you'd know where Reno is).

    Hi sir Larry and Happysniper1. I am from Valenzuela City and now living in Quezon City. Have 2 kids now and one more on the way. That's why I feel I need to protect them so I got myself the Glock19. But my wife feels its an excuse for me to get myself a gun. But I plan to get her Glock26 once she can properly fire a gun. Parang lagay. hehe.
    By the way, what made you guys migrate to the states?

    Don't know about Larry, but in my case it was simple: my Dad's a natural-born Citizen, so we ended up here :D
