Not to be rude or hate, but why do people complain about the Glock 19 Gen 4? After reading the reviews, I decided to buy one, and it was my very first handgun. I bought in in Oct 2011, and since then I have fired 1300+ rounds through it. I have about a total of 15 problems (Stove pipe, Failure to Feed, and 2x the slide didn't lock to rear). I have notice people complain about getting hit by the ejecting case...does it really matter that much? When you're focused you don't even realize it's happening. I have been using Federal Champion 115gr. I guess what I'm trying to say is, its a $500 handgun...if you're looking for something perfect spend more...but remember, no matter how much you put into it, it will never function 100%. There are always many possibilities..
