I finally joined the dark side and bought a Glock

I bought my first Glock today, a Gen4 G19. At $575 I didn't get the best price, but I'm excited to get it nonetheless.

Congrats!
I bought a used G19 Gen4 3 weeks ago for $495. Like Brand new with all accessories!

Congrats on your purchase. The G19 is a wonderful pistol.

May I suggest that you stock up with 15 round magazines ASAP. One never really knows what the future will bring.

IMHO, that's not a bad price...when I bought my G19 Gen3 back in January, the Gen 4 was about $595, IIRC...

Anyway...go shoot it...enjoy!!

$595 seems to be the going rate for new glocks around these parts. My local Fleet Farm and Gander Mountain have NIB Glocks for $599+Tax's and Fees right now.

Thats really not a bad price. The used ones are only $100 cheaper right now!

Welcome to the dark side. Now feel the force going through you.

(best evil laugh) mmmmuuuuuhhaaaa

Serious note, hope you like it. Although I have other handguns, I decided a while back that the Glock was the only personal protection gun for me.

I've tried different guns too. I shot a RIA 1911, USP, M&P, SD40. Couldnt find anything that shot and performed like my OLD glock.

Seems like a fine price considering the current climate. I paid $705 for my G35 in January and was thrilled to find one at MSRP.

Congrats. You've just opened your eyes to the no nonsense, practical side of shooting--the meat and potatoes of handgunning!

I made the decision last week also to buy a G19 Gen4, new at my lgs for $563. Now the problem is finding a supply of ammo for a reasonable price. My son has had a G26 for quite a while and after shooting it I felt the G19 just seem to feel right/fit in my hand better. I have (5) 15-round mags with 2 on order, just need ammo.........

I too, came over to the dark side, bought a 17C with night sights, two mags for $600. I feel good about it. Just glad to have found one! Went to the range, 150 rounds thru her, I am a believer. Looking for my next one...

Congrats on your G19. I have four 15 round magazines now I'm in the process of getting four 17 round magazines for my G19. They also work great in my Glock 26.

Congratulations on your purchase. The Gen4 G19 was my first purchase as well. Have you thought about what your next 3 or 4 Glocks will be?

Why is Glock the "dark side"?
What brand is the "light side"?
