    Hey GT,

    So about two weeks ago I went and evaluated the usual polymer suspects when looking for my first handgun. Namely, the M&P 9mm service, XD9, and the Glock 19. I'll be honest when I say that I wanted to get the XD, but I really didn't care for the grip. The M&P was alright. But the Glock 19 fit like a glove for me and pointed naturally. I rented both the 19 and the M&P and the 19 won hands down.

    I've been looking since then for a good deal on a Glock 19. Just paid for one today. It is a used gen 3 19 with 1k rounds through it including all accessories below.

    Trijicon Night Sights - bought and installed this year
    Glock Light
    3 15rd Glock Mags
    Extended Slide Release
    3.5lb Trigger
    Don Hume IWB Holster
    Original Case, manual, speed loader, original parts, etc

    Total cost - $475 shipped

    I think I got a pretty good deal considering I wanted Trijicons, slide release, and a Don Hume. Gun looks to be well taken care of and the seller has a great reputation. We'll see when it arrives at my FFL later this week. Looking forward to getting involved in GSSF! Thanks for all the great info here on GT.

    Yah, I have a membership at an indoor range near me. Looking to join the local chapter of the IWLA. They hold a lot of shooting events. I definitely know practice is paramount.

    IDPA matches are very fun and a great form of practice for the real world. Enjoy your G19 and stock up on ammo when you see it cheap:wavey:

    Good deal? That's a great deal. I just got a G23 which is the same exact size. I think it's the best all around size Glock out there. I haven't even shot mine yet and already love it.

    The G19 is a great first gun and one of the best 9mm's of all time. Congrats.

    Thanks for the welcomes and encouraging posts. I thought it was a pretty good deal too. Not many people selling excellent condition G19s for that price let alone with upgrades. Looking forward to contributing to the awesome GT community. :supergrin:
