The Gen2 Glocks are perfect for those who don't like the fingergrooves; they were a big step up from the Gen1 pistols, much more "grippy" and controllable with the checkering on the frame, but still as reliable as the sunrise.
Every now and then a nice Gen2 G19 pops up on the used market. Keep looking and you'll find one.
