New to guns in Ohio

Hi all, I'm a new glock owner here in Ohio I just bought a police trade-in G19(gen 3). I was wondering if you more experinced shooters can tell me are there any up grades I should do to my gun?

A little about me. I am 51yrs old and this is my first handgun. I loved playing paintball so I thought I would try the real thing. I love it too!!! Went to a local range and shot 100 rds, I didn't want to stop, I'm hooked

MARKTHESHOTG19,

First of all congratulations on the new Glock purchase, I have had a G19 for a long time now, it is my bread & butter gun, wouldn't trade it for another.

Before spending any money on up-grades as yourself what exactly are you going to use this gun for? This will help your decision making. If a stock gun was good enough for the cops...

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/287...mate-glock-dvd

http://glockstore.com/ - Common up-grades
Trijicon night sights
Stainless steel recoil spring
Recoil buffer pad
Extended slid stop
3.5 lb trigger connector
+2 mag extensions are a real great item

If your G19 is going to double as a home security gun such as in the bedroom night stand type of thing, I highly recommend buying one of these and putting it on the railing under the barrel. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/711...aluminum-matte

Well worth the $$$.

Good luck and be safe

Welcome, and congrats, from another Ohioan! The only upgrades you'll need are more magazines. Enjoy!

kentguy,
thanks for the advice, I think that the Stainless steel recoil spring is a good idea, I was a little worried about the plastic one. I am mostly going to use it as a range gun but if needed it will be used as self/home defence as well. thanks for all the welcome from the rest of you

IMHO, The gun should be fine as is.

Possible upgrade:
Mags
Night sights
TLR-2
Holster
CCW permit
and a training class.

No Stainless steel recoil spring
No Recoil buffer pad
HLL No Extended slid stop
No 3.5 lb trigger connector
HLL No +2 mag extensions

BTW, X-buckeye, learn where your DNR ranges are and use them in the spring through fall.

It being a Leo trade you may want to check to see if it has a ny trigger in it.

Google Glock my trigger and look at pics. It's easy to tell.

I just purchased a Leo trade 19 and it's in there.

It makes the trigger weight higher.
