    I took my new old stock 19 to the range and shot about 150rd of my reloads. I enjoyed the grip the texture gave and it sits in your hand and doesnt move. The ejection of the brass was to the front and right about three feet. I am a lefty and there was no brass to face or dribbling out. I had a great time and made a nice part to my day off. A great product.(the envelope said test fired 2010 fyi)

    i know

    its been a long journey:brickwall:

    i actually was going to ask your advice on this:

    the 19 RTF2 i just got is literally brand new - it sat in a warehouse for 2 years and i was lucky enough to end up with access to it. it has never been shot, not even once.

    however...

    about 5 of the tiny pyramids on the back of the grip have broken off from the stupid ****ing mag loader piece of plastic banging around inside the box with the gun.

    so, in essence, this thing is perfect except for the grip

    if this were you, would you start shooting it or make it a safe queen?

    if the grip were perfect along with the rest of the gun i wouldnt even be asking you this as i would just put it in my safe and forget about it...

    but now that its already damaged, and damaged in an area that now i dont have to worry about when shooting it, should i just enjoy its awesomeness and make my 17RTF2 the safe queen?

    id appreciate your input

    I'd shoot them both and enjoy it man. I'm blasting rounds through my 23C RTF2. Life's too short. :) congrats on the acquisition!

    I had it on lay a way for three months. It was worth the wait. It functioned right, and thats a great thing for this period in Glock history. It will be carried daily at work. I will let you know how the grip texture wears(bumping against things etc)

    I say shoot it. I'll admit, I'm guilty of thinking this way at times. The truth is, you probably won't sell it if you like it enough to not shoot it. In that case, you may as well shoot it and enjoy it. As long as you don't abuse it, If you need to sell it at some point, I'm sure you'll still get a decent price for it.

    yea I'm gonna shoot it and make my 17, which has less than 100 rounds through it, the safe queen/collectors item

    I just like the 19 RTF2 too much to let it sit in a box.
