    I picked up my first handgun today. Proud to say it's a Glock 19. I was in love the first time I touched it. Can't wait to take this bad boy to the range.

    Welcome to the club. I've got 2 Glock 19's of my own..

    Yep - +P or +P+ work fine in the G19. For a holster, try the Alessi Talon Plus IWB. It's my standard carry holster for the G19/23 size weapons, and I've never found a better.

    Thanks for the info Preacherman. I checked the manual and Glocks web site and a few other dedicated Glock sites and never found a mention of it. And I most definitly don't want to have a blown up gun with a new nickname "Lefty":D Will check out that holster straight away.

    Thats a good thing IMNSHO. I don't want my investment to be a useless pile of scrap metal and plastic. Cost me a Crap load of cash($545 plus tax). Supposably NIB but I highly dought it. Looks new but it's gen 2. I could have done alot better but once I held it I couldn't wait I just had to have it.

    Peetmoss,

    The Glock is a great choice!

    Be prepared for a lot of flack from non-Glockers. If a Glock in Zimbabwe has a failure to feed, you can bet that someone will post it here within the hour.

    Yeah, I've done that a few times.
    That's why I've been staying away from my local "toy" dealer..:D

    Sidearmor if you like Kydex. Galco if you're into leather. :D

    G19 is a great sidearm.

    Saw one G21 kB a month or two ago. Owner was handloading and had screwed up a load. :eek:

    He fortunately didn't get any broken bones out of the deal, but he said it was like having his hand hammered on an anvil.

    Moral of the story: If you handload, be careful!

    Well I just turned one of my buddies to the good side he is getting a SA Milspec cause the Glock is not what he wanted.

    The dark side gained and lost one..........

    I like the G19.
    I would carry it in anything from Galco . I hate plastic holsters.
    I would shoot a 115+p load out of it.
