Just rented a Glock 19 and XD9
I have a gun store just down the street from me, today I decided to stop in and see what they had. The lady showed me a Glock 17, 19, and a Springfield XD9.
All of the guns where trimmed in 9mm, and by looks and feel alone, I much preferred the XD9 to the Glock, and between the Glocks, I preferred the 19 to the 17. As it turned out this gun shop had a indoor shooting range attached, and I was able to rent each and try them both out.
Although I preferred the looks, and feel of the Springfield, as soon as I fired the Glock 19 I was done looking. The gun was way more comfortable to shoot and I was much more accurate with it. Now im in love, I have narrowed my search exclusively to a Glock 19 trimmed the way I want. Is it just me or does the Glock have a shorter trigger pull?
Anyway, the Glock was $465.00, and from what I have seen on the internet thatís not a bad price at all. This is going to be my first handgun and I want to start off with something small and cheap to fire, the Glock 19 seems perfect for me.
My first gun was an SAR 1 AK-47, and one of my biggest regrets with that gun was that I didnít spend a few extra bucks to get a nicer looking AK with a milled receiver. So since I usually end up spending more time looking at my guns than firing them I want to get a glock that has some mods on it. Nothing crazy I was thinking about nothing more than a textured grip and stainless top.
Is there anyplace I can get a new gun with these mods already done for a reasonable price?
