    Post Bought a G19 today

    With ammo being so expensive and the 92 being my only 9mm, I figured I'd get the Beretta a little brother... well, maybe a little step-brother.





    I think this little guy will do me just fine.

    Nice pistol.

    I have shot xd's, m&p's, and glocks. I prefer the glocks. You can't go wrong with a 19.

    Well I never had shot a Glock untill my daughter bought a G-19 just like yours. I am impressed with that pistol. I liked everything about it but the looks. You got to admitt the Glock,XD, and M&P are all ugly. Ater shooting them all I like the G-19 the best. Yes I think there's one in my future. [I here Mike smiling now.] Mr Spartan you done well. Good luck wit it.

    Nothing wrong with the Glock. I'm an XD guy, but it's because I like how they feel better in my hand. Spartan's got a good gun that's going to be reliable and fun for him to shoot.

    Yeah, the poly guns are kinda ugly, but they work well.

    Mike's now on a mission to get everyone to carry a Kel Tec in an ankle holster, regardless if you wear shorts all day or not.

    XD? Ugly?

    Now I'm rethinking my tattoo... Thought it would look pretty good.

    PS All "I just bought a new XXXXXX" posts MUST include a range report follow-up with pictures!!!! LOL

    Ok, they're not as pretty as a 1911. Fair?

    I think you have to give a time frame. Sometimes you buy the gun, but can't get to the range (unless you're Tony P.). I'd say 5 days to post a range report.

    I too like the XD a lot; I have one in 45. I have yet to handle one with the shortened frame. 'Six of one, half dozen the other' for me regarding Glocks and XD's. I've just been in a Glock mood lately.

    As far as range report, it took all of a day to get the new Glock there. 200 WWB rounds through. Fun little gun. I kept few of the better targets. Lower paper is from a rested position with the gun on its case (that low one was my fault); upper & middle are from a standing, unsupported position... all from ~21'. The circle around the "X" is 1 & 5/8" in dia., for reference.

    The consensus: . This little guy and I are going to get along quite well.



    Now I want to get one of those 33 round G18 mags just for the hell of it. Practical? Not at all. Fun? Absolutely.

    Congrats on the new to you G19! Got me one a few months ago--it's going to be my favorite out of all my Glocks. Be careful of that slip on grip hindering your mag ejections.

    Glock on!

    It doesn't. The overlap is negligible.
