Bought my first Glock today!

Bought myself a 3rd generation Glock 19 9mm today. Great gun and very accurate. I like it better than my S&W M&P 9mm.

Congratulations. The G19 is easily the best of the breed. I'd ask for pictures, but we all know what a Glock looks like.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I agree .. I bought my G19 last year, and I love it. Point blank accurate. I did a few mods to it and not it even shots a lot smother than it did. My brother also noticed it at the range this weekend. As a matter of fact, I just ordered some Meprolight Glock TRU-DOT Fixed Night sights today for it. Should get it by the end of the week.

Congratulations. While I find the utilitarian style appealing, many find them ugly. I have two, a G17 and it's baby brother G26. Both are third generation. The G26 has Heinie sights, as will the G17 when I get around to it.

The only Glock I've fired was a G19. I don't knock the mechanics of the gun, I just didn't like the way it felt when I shot it. Is it one of those things you have to "develop a taste for?"

That was like reading someone laid four to five bills on the ground, whizzed upon them and when they dried, set fire to them.

I carry a G26 daily; shoot a bunch @ the range through a G17. Will probably pick up a G19, when the "real deal" appears before me. I always install aftermarket 3.5# connectors and polish all the mating surfaces of the firing mechanisms of my Glocks. Also won't shoot an Agripless Glock. Just don't like the feel of nekked plastic!

IMO it's one of the "best value, all around, easy to replace parts, guns" out there. Other than the glock line being a little thick and blocky, there's not a valid argument against one other than opinion and preference.

I have a glock 23 and with a few modifications it is a whole different animal.

Top of my list of suggestions is the extended slide release. It is amazing on how such a tiny increase on the slide release makes a great change.

Next on my list (Not if it is a duty weapon for you) is the 3.5 lb connector combined with the .25 cent trigger job...... significant improvement.

If you want an even lighter trigger you need to change to a 4lb striker spring but I think the above will make you happy. Best part is if you do not like it the change back is less than 5 minutes.

The last thing I did was an extended magazine release. Depending on the holster and your carry position the extended release works "too good" and can catch on things. I lightly rounded mine a bit.

I like mine due to it's low cost and I am not afraid to bang it around. It does take a short time to acquire a feel for a weapon that gets lighter with every squeeze of the trigger.

The next item on my "to do" list with mine is the grip enhancement (later down the road).

Have fun with it........ please tell us you kept a 1911

Congrats on your purchase. Very utilitarian weapon. They have the asthetics of a 2x4, but they go bang every time ya pull the trigger, which is more than than can be said of some eye candy! Joe.
