I had been looking at the G19's for a while and reading the info here. I finally took the plunge and picked up my first one this past week. Put the 3.5# connector on it and an M3 light before leaving the gun shop. I plan on using it primarily for home defense, as well as carrying along on the road trips. I hope to get out to the range the first part of the week to fire it off. I look foward to learning and participating more here in the G19 club.
