    Nothing new to report... just that after an evening shooting my G19 (which mostly sits in the safe, as I usually carry my G23) I have come away so impressed with this little pistol that I had to crow a little about it. What a superb gun.

    Standard mag gives me 16 rounds in a super easy-to-carry, compact, lightweight, stone reliable, and steadfastly durable defense gun. Accuracy? Awesome! Potency? Speer 124 gr. +P Gold Dots will do their part quite well indeed if I put them where they need to go. And with the G19, that's so easy to do!

    I loaded up 17-rounds of 124 gr. +P Gold Dots in a G17 mag, popped it in my G19 and in VERY short order dropped all 17 rounds within an inch or so at a range of about 20 feet. For a target gun, that's not a big deal, by any means, but to do so in fairly rapid fire, free hand, from a defense gun like the G19 speaks a lot to me. (And I've got a whole bunch of super accurate 1911's I could be shooting too.) This gun is so soft shooting, comfortable, reliable, accurate, and easy to pack - it really does push on the borders of "perfection".

    So, nothing more to say except that I honestly believe that the G19 may actually be Glock "perfection"! :D The GLock 19 is SUPERB!

    I can't argue with you.

    the G19 may actually be Glock "perfection"!

    I must add that I installed a 3.5# connector (giving the gun a 4.75# trigger pull) and a smooth-faced G17 trigger (giving a smoother feel on the trigger finger). Other than that, a little polishing here and there and the gun shoots like a dream!

    Absolutely love my Glock 19C. I had the 3.5 Lb, quick-reset trigger installed. Wow!

    That doesn't sound perfect to me. Why don't you carry it? :confused:

    I had, and carried, a G19 since the early 90's. About a year ago I picked up, and shot, a CZ P-01. The Glock is long gone, and I am on my third P-01. Try the P-01, and you won't look back. :)

    While I'm not a Glock fan (like 1 old 0311, I'd take my P-01 over my 19), I have a Glock 19 since it (or other Glock models) is kind of an industry standard in a couple industries I may be going into after I ETS. I like the 19, but definitely feel you have to either shoot a Glock a lot, or accept mediocre accuracy with one if you shoot other pistosl more, due to the trigger and the grip angle (primarily the trigger, for me).

    I love my G19. I have fired other styles of pistols, but I think that I will always have my G19.

    I bought one a couple months ago and just shot it the first time yesterday. It is now my favorite piece. It was so accurate. By the way, I couldnt beleive how much bang the speer 124 +p has. Loaded every other with target ammo, and it felt like the difference between a .38 and a .357. I think the speer +p round is definetly a powerful round. I cant imagine how the +p+ 124's would be.

    The grip is just a tad too short for me or the finger grooves aren't spaced out enough. Either way, for me it's slightly more uncomfortable to hold and shoot than the full-sized models. But you can't argue with the size and capacity of the 19!

    Yeah, for the size and weight, to have 16 rounds on tap before a reload is pretty amazing. As for the feel... it took a long time handling and shooting the Glocks before I came to the point of liking how they feel in the hand. I do handle them every day, pack every day, shoot at least once a week... so now I've come to really like the feel of the 19 & 23 (same feel). And with the 3.5# connector, the trigger is really nice. 19 or 23. 23 or 19. Tough choice! That's why I have both.

    You say it's perfect and superb but you changed the disconnector, trigger, and polished the action. After all this work was done on a perfect pistol it was placed in the safe to sit out the rest of it's days. Why all the work to stash away a perfect pistol?
