Just went to a gun show and brought home a 19. Got if for 504.99 plus tax with night sights. Is that a good deal. Now that I got it home I am kind of thinking I should have got the 26 for same price and features but oh well.
Congrats! Unless you can get it wholesale somewhere that's not a bad deal, especially with night sights. You will enjoy the 19 (better than the 26 probably). Over the years I've had a couple of 19's and really like their size and the way they shoot. Reliable and accurate. If you bought the 26 the first thing you'd do is start buying some mag extensions to make it like the 19! Now you just need to go shoot about 300 and more rounds. Enjoy it.
Excellent! Just got my G19 this week also! No night sights on mine and paid the same. Oh-well. It's going to be a carry piece so I'll probably stick with the factory plastic sights for now. Congrats on the new G19!
That is a good price. I just got my 19 less that a week ago and paid $499 without night sights. The cheapest I have seen them with night sights around me is $569. I made my choice for the 19 after handling and shooting my dad's 26, it just feels better to me. I carry a Kahr CW9 for SD so I wanted something a little bigger with the Glock.
I think that you made a good choice with the G19! I have AT LEAST one of them. The subcompacts are not really all that much different.
Train hard, train often, and train REALISTICALLY!!!
