    I dont mean to start a riot, the g19 turned me into a glock fan. I admit I am a freak of nature as it is not a natural shooter for me. Not enough finger spacing is part of my problem.

    Who had the same experience? What did you settle on? There is a % in here who experienced the same.

    I have large hands and I love the 19. The finger spacing could be better but the rest of the pistol more than makes up for it. A gen 2 front strap would be awesome.

    My first Glock was a G19. I purchased a G17 and discovered that I could conceal the 17 as easily as I could the 19. So I got rid of the 19. I now have a G26 for an EDC. If I only owned 1 Glock, "maybe" it would be a 19. but more than likely I would have either the 17, or just keep the 26 and use the 17 mags.

    YMMV

    My first pistol was a Glock 19. I loved it but never shot real great with it. I shoot better groups with my Glock 17 and my Glock 26.

    I really do like that size of pistol though and have since sold it and replaced it with a CZ P01. I've got my eye on the Walther PPQ and Sig P229 Elite Dark as well which are about the same size.

    I should add, this is a gen 3. Ive held the gen 4, and it feels a bit better. The g17 feels alot better, just never shot it.

    Same here, my first Glock was a 19. It was to small for my hand. I now have a 17 and a 34 and can coneal either one.

    I had this same problem. I bought a bad ass OD green G19 that I wanted to work out so bad. I just couldn't get a comfy grip on it. I even had the finger grooves removed and re-textured, but still couldnt get used to it. I sold it and bought a gen4 G17, and I love it. It has the dreaded FTE's and brass to the forehead problem though. It's currently at Glock getting repaired. I really hope it comes back working right, I really like that gun.

    I like the G26 more than the G19.

    I really like my G19, But I love my CZ PCR.

    The CZ fits my hand better, points better and I shoot it better.

    But I do Love all of the stuff you can get for the Glocks that are not as readly availble for the CZs.

    I Love my Glocks and CZ's

    I love my G19, but I would much rather have a 26 at this point, then purchase the 19 or a 17 later.

    First glock ever used and issued was a 19, so I will always be partially biased. That being said, I purchased a gen4 g27 and am absolutely blown away... It just "feels" better. I am actually shooting better than ever splitting time between the two. Stay safe.

    the G19 fits my hand better than my G17 because the 19's back strap bump sits in the right place at the heel of my hand.
