Let me preface by stating I live in North Dakota and over the past couple years we've experienced an oil boom and an influx of undesirables into the western half of our state. That being said; I've wanted to purchase a pistol forever for plinking. With the boom and massive rise of crime the necessity to own a multifaceted pistol was here. It took me months to determine the caliber of choice which turned out to definitely be the 9mm, considering I knew I'd require adequate (efficient) practice to become proficient. I then handled most all of the mid sized 9's and narrowed my decision to the Walther PPQ/PPS or Glock. From previous understanding of Glock's reliability and feel I decided on the GEN4 G19 and ordered last week Monday. Shortly after ordering (what I hoped to be the perfect choice), I happened across the GT website and began reading all the horror stories of FTF, FTE, Stove Pipes, etc., etc.... Well within 4 hours of ordering my new weapon, I called my FFL dealer and asked him if he'd placed my order because I was having buyers remorse the same day of ordering my prized possession. He indicated that he'd already placed the order and not to worry as Glock's are a fine weapon and he'd never heard of anything as I mentioned. Being a substantial purchase within my budget I began to think if it was a lemon like so many others have mentioned; I'd just put it for sale, take my lumps and order a Walther in short order. Well my Glock arrived Thursday morning last week and due to other responsibilities I wasn't gonna be able to get to the range until Saturday. In the meantime, I figured it'd be wise to pickup a couple hundred rounds of ammo. I picked up 100 rds each of TulAmmo, WWB and Federals all from Wally World. Finally Saturday would arrive and upon arrival at the range my FFL "Charlie" noticed the ammo I had purchased and needless to say he gave me a tongue lashing for buying "garbage" ammo. I felt extremely cheap and probably deservedly so. On to the shooting! Figured might as well start with the cheapest junk ammo of all, the TulAmmo at $8.47 a box and would progress as the failures would sure force me too. All I can say is "Wow what an awesome weapon!" Not only did this fine crafted gun work flawlessly, It was pretty damn accurate (considering the amateur behind it) as well. I can't wait to get out tomorrow night, Thursday night and Saturday afternoon to shoot another couple hundred rounds per visit. Sorry for the long rant, I'm just thrilled with my first pistol and want to say thanks to many of you for all the awesome information this website provides.
