Hey y'all... Fairly new Glock owner here. Bought a used Gen 3 Glock 17 a couple of months ago and fell in love... That thing is an amazing piece of firearms technology. It does everything we expect from a Glock. Eats any ammo I give it and asks for more. I even did my first IPSC competition with it, and it was beautiful, man... I get a nice bonus at the end of the month, and I'm ready to buy the wife one. She's shot my G17 a couple of times and she's digging it, too. We have our CCW class next month, so she will need a good carry weapon. No problem. Glock 19. Problem solved. So now I'm waiting 'till the beginning of November to buy her one. And I want her to have a new, unused weapon we can break in together, and both trust to defend her if the ***** hits the fan. Except, the brass to the face thing is not acceptable. She's amazing, but a few hot cases to her gorgeous face and she's liable to lose interest. My local gun store has some Gen 3 G19's available, but some of you guys say that even the late model G3's are doing the same thing. I have enough skill to polish up the extractor (or replace it with a better aftermarket one) but have we settled on that being the true problem? Opinions seem to vary... My local pawn shop has a used 9mm M&P for $429. An good option for now until Glock gets this figured out. They also have a couple USA made G19's (I know, right?)... Will I be ok with one of those? I really think it's a good idea my wife carries... Her confidence level is just a bit tenuous right now, so I'm very concerned about the brass to the face thing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. -Eric Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
