    Ive had my G19 for 13 years, buying it new in Germany(no Smyrna markings) and have been nothing but pleased. It feeds all types of ammo flawlessly and the finish still looks like I just pulled it out of the box. I had a Glock armorer look at it and he couldnt find any appreciable wear or tear on the pistol. I have over 11,000 rounds through this pistol with only three cleanings over the last 13 years, stupid, probably, but it only goes to show what an engineering feat this weapon is.

    The guy who gave this gun a 2 rating(4 comments below) is, well, off his rocker! This gun is flawless. Accurate, reliable. I added a Hogue grip and perfect. If the chips fall I know 100% my Glock will be there for me.

    The top three 9s in my collection are the Glock 19, P228, and XD9 with this easily being my favorite gun for every good reason already mentioned. Enough said.

    After owning and shooting many 9mms, I swore by my Ruger P94DC. However, after buying an older style G19 (no finger grips or accessory rail,) and putting a few hundred rounds through it, I wouldnt depend on anything else for a home defense, or a conceled carry gun!! It is a VERY safe gun to carry dispite all the negative gossip, even in your waistband. And unless your holding it like a contagous dead rat, there is no chance of jamming! The Austrian Army did a 50,000 rnd test with no more than 20 m.f.s allowed, the glock only had 1!!! Thank you Gaston Glock for a damn fine hand gun!!!

    I love this gun, have never had one single problem. If there is one gun i know i can count on out of all my guns, it is by far my Glock 19. Glock makes one hell of a gun. It will shoot whatever, whenever, clean, dirty, dry, wet.... No complaints here. Good shooting everyone.... :)

    i was really upset with the glock when i saw other people not using it to its fullest. they did not know how to use the striker fire. this sure is one of the greatest guns i love the accuracy and recoil. the gun fits great in my hand. although a hogue grip would be a great accessory. i shot a 1000 rounds no jams just a malfunction bullet. i bought the 9mm monarchs at academy sports they are only 4.86. theyre ok

    Ive never been a fan of polymer frame pistols, but I have to say... after years of putting down polymer pistols I was very impressed. I finally shot a friends Glock last weekend and loved it. I was putting rounds through the center of the target repeatedly. I guess after all these years of scrutiny I shouldnt have knocked it til I tried it. Id like to get one, but theyre a little expensive. Ill have to save for it. In the meantime Ill keep shooting my old reliable Ruger P85.

    I attended a Combat Shoot and used a GLOCK 19 for the 1st time. I was hooked. My grouping was excellent, recoil was minimal and the firearm was literally an extention of my hand. Its a fine balance that has been excellently maintained. In CQC (Close Quarters Combat) Rapid Fire conditions, the firearm responded very well. No jams, hic-ups or stove-pipes. I can clearly see why the worlds police forces use a GLOCK as a standard. Now, I am waiting for my Firearm Licence to own mine.

    Ive had my 9mm Glock 19 for 2 months now,its really a great gun,cleaning it is a snap. I have shot 300 rounds through it,Federal and winchester bulk value packs from Walley World. My wife has shot it to,but says it just has a little to much recoil for her. I bought her a Walther P22,Its not as easy to clean as the Glock is. I only wish Glock came with adjustable sights. Mine seems to be shooting a little low and to the left. But it might just me and not the gun. Time will tell.

    They make an after market peep sight. It will help to illiminate any uniform inacuracy any of you Glock fans may experience. Also they make a weighted plug for the inside of the grip, to minimize recoil. Im up to 4000+ rnds with my gen 2 glock 19, and no problems so far!!! I love it.

    My G 19 was my first pistol I bought for myself, did have a S&W 38 special given to me by my Dad, but the Glock has been a passion to own for some time . When I decided to take my CCW class I broke down and coughed up the $500 for it. This has been about a year ago. I has lived up to all the hype about Glocks and my expectations as well. I dont have any idea how many rounds I have put through it, many hundreds. No failure to anything. Just complete reliability. I looked around for a good concealed carry pistol and bought a PPK/S, Kahr p9, a Kahr PM9, and a Beretta Tomcat. All have been good pistols. The PPK is outstandingly accurate and reliable, but is a .380... not putting it down, I think .380 is a serious round, especially if you are a good shot... The Kahrs are really good guns as well great for carry. The Beretta is good for carry also, no problems at all but it is a .32, I wouldnt want to bet my life on a .32, but I wouldnt want to bet my life on reaching in my pocket in a time of need and find nothing either!.... The Glock is the best of all of them in every way but for concealed carry. I even had an after market safety put on the G19 so I would feel better if I tried carrying it concealed. The safety works fine, but I still cant carry it. So the G19 stays in the house or in the car, the PM9 is favorite carry and the Tomcat goes to my daughter for her purse.... But I just love my G19, its the best shooting most reliable pistol money can buy IMHO.

    Glock does not recommend using reloads. I have went through about 500 rounds in my 9 mm glock. I use Winchester 115 gr. full metal jacket in the 100 round value pack from wallyworld. Federal american eagle is also good, but cost a little more. This is one super gun. When your tired of firing 9mm, order the 22 long rifle conversion kit from Advantagearms.com. I just ordered one,but the company has a 6 to 8 week backlog. There are many good reviews on this kit.

    I have qualified with the Glock 19 for 5 years now, and still cannot stand its grip angle. Unlike the famous Glock perfection logo, I have had several jam on me, one dropped its magazine with no manipulation of the magazine release, had another jam the slide so bad the armorer had to take it to dismantle and repair. That was simply locking the slide back, not even fireing, no ammo in the weapon.

    I believe these are expert guns, for experianced shooters, due to the light trigger and no positive safety, unsafe for untrained or partially trained shooters.

    The only problem Ive had with my glock is that it keeps running out of ammo!As far as it being unsafe, that gun will not fire until you pull that trigger. Like my range instructor told me, keep your FINGER off that trigger until you want that gun to fire. I have a 22 auto with a external safety,and I always have to look and make sure that safety is on when I load. Now with a Glock you Dont have to look.

    What more can I say. The best 9mm out there. This is my first Glock, and hopefully not my last. Extremely accurate and low recoil. I really had a great time on first range visit. Really felt great with Scherer mag extension, and rubber grip. A good idea one guy gave me was to use a rubber bike inter- tube as a grip. Let me tell you, it works.

    Great gun. Would recommend to anyone.
