A friend wanted my 19! It worked so well I can't blame him. I decided to get a Gen 5 after a little while to see if any "NEW MODEL OF 'ANYTHING ISSUES' arise to the surface. Hopefully this will be a good decision, but as well all know sometimes selling a good working gun sold, becomes a regret later! There are many types of gun owners: 1. Keepers. They buy and keep all their guns, period. If shooting is your only activity of if money is not an issue, this is a good one. 2. Buy, sell and trade: They buy every gun that has ever come off an assembly line. This affords the street cop such as I the opportunity to own, shoot, and use guns as they improve or not so, over the years looking for the perfect gun, which of course doesn't exist. Since cops are at the mercy of cheapskate Government's pay rates, this is a way to own more gun types than one can afford to keep forever with the large number of purchases made and coming in the future. 3. Collector: They collect guns they predict will grow in value like an investment. They don't shoot them much or get them wet, dirty or bruised. Guns, like Boys, are NOT HAPPY unless they are wet, dirty and tired! What type of gun owner are you?
