Love my G19, am I a sicko?

Guess since I'm new to firearms I'm slightly obsessed, I've been following proper responsibility of being a gun owner and my self handling and looking and taking pictures of my G19 like its a puppy who brings me my slippers.

Mall ninja bayonet for photo only, a TLR-3 usually sits on the rail.

Is it just that I'm new and fascinated by my G19 or am I sick in the head?Click image for larger version

You are not at all ill. The G19 is a great handgun. I have its bigger brother, the G17, and I love mine!

She's a happy 19, gets fed a steady diet of 200 rounds bi weekly and gets a good cleaning just as often with daily rubdowns with warm soft micro fiber massages.

On a metaphorical level, that's pretty sick.

Welcome to the fold.

i took mine out of the safe the other night loaded it up with defense ammo and started carrying it again. I love mine and wouldn't think of getting rid of it.

My 19 has never seen a drop of oil (aside from factory grease) or any cleaning in 3 years and hundreds of rounds. Only wipe-downs on the outside.

She does not seem to mind the neglect. Am I gonna get flamed?

Probably not. Your gun=your money=your responsibility. If you want to speed the parts wear on your gun it won't hurt anyone else's feelings.

If loving a Glock 19 is a sickness then I don't wanna be well! I'm currently involved in a love triangle with a 19 and a 26.

I often holster up and run reload drills with my G17. If that's being sick, then I don't want to be well.

While most machines work better with maintenance, I believe AKs and Glocks are more tolerant of abuse and neglect. I'll think of this as a torture test.

Failure is acceptable since this is not my defense weapon.

Yes. My car is essential and I've seen the results of poor maintenance. My G19 is not essential since I do not use it for defense. At the first hint that the gun is suffering excessive wear, not performing normally, or becoming unsafe, I will baby it like I do my defensive tools.

To the OP, enjoy your new puppy and welcome!

You'd think since it has proven itself that you would clean it and use it for defense.

Ditto and the disease does not go into remission. My G19 is 25 years old, the G26 just a few months but I am more obsessed than ever.
