    After months of thinking what my first handgun would be and posting a thread in which i got positive replies, I decided to get a bnew 3rd gen G19 :) It just got released the other day. Planning to buy trijicon night sights. You guys think it's worth it? Any suggestions what accessories to buy next? cant make up mind... Anyway, thanks to those who helped me decide on the right gun

    Nice! Can't go wrong with a Glock. I have night sights on mine and it makes all the difference.

    Excellent choice. I have 5 Glocks and love them.

    Check Here

    They have all kinds of stuff for Glocks, night sights included. I am thinking about the XS Sight systems myself. They will also send you a very nice Catalog.

    Get some more Hi-Cap mags and plenty of ammo:D

    Whether you bought the best auto maker is debatable. But, one thing is positive, you will find more aftermarket stuff for a Glock compared to many other brand autos.

    Though i personally don't like glock pistols, i think they are great weapons!It will serve you well, and you will have alot of fun with it. i don't like the sights that come on glocks so i would definetly put three dot sights or night sights like was said, i would also get a nice holster, which for glocks the choices are
    endless, i would get a nice leather and maybe a nice kydex just for the heck of it! don't be affraid to pay for a nice holster you will be glad you did! enjoy and have fun!

    Congrats on your first gun, you've done well. Learn it inside out, detail strip the gun and learn its function. Glocks are real easy to take apart, and there are aftermarket parts galore for the Glock. But sometimes remember, simplicity is best.

    Glocks are for the most part reliable as it is. From my experience and reading other's experiences, sometimes adding aftermarket parts on there just isn't worth it. I remember reading up on so many aftermarket parts, and in the end, all I stuck with was the factory night sights and polished internals on the factory #5 connector.

    Anyways, check out www.GlockTalk.com

    Have fun, and shoot safe!

    If you are new to handguns, the first "accessory" I would get would be professional instruction. You will learn much better and much faster if you don't have to try every wrong way to shoot but start out with good habits instead.

    And, congrats - good to have another gun owner around.

    Congrats on your first gun. I have long hated Glocks but have always acknowledged their dependability and versatility. In fact I just bought my first Glock (a G29 10mm) today and now have to learn to like it. I just hope my 1911, HK UP (.45), Sig P239, and S&W 500 are not going to get Jealous.
