    By now, my G19 has about 5,000 rounds fired. I just returned from a Masaad Ayoob 4-day class in South Caroline. Two days shooting in the cold rain and mud. Shot about 500 rounds of Blazer 115-gr aluminum. Zero malfunctions and the only brass that hit my head was from the G17 6 feet to my left. Only downside is now, after shooting 1 day with speed reloads, magizines dropping in the mud, I have to clean 26 magazines.

    Overall, the class was fantastic and I am 100% satisfied with my Gen4 G19.

    Did you have ejection/extraction/BTF issues ever in this pistol?

    Thanks for the report. Sorry the weather was not better. On the other hand you know it works well in the rain now.

    The pistol has always been 100% for me. It has the original August 2010 ejector. I normally shoot my soft 147-gr reloads but for class I choose quality factory ammo.

    Training included Weaver, Chapman and Isosceles stances, standing, crouching and kneeling, and one handed strong and weak hand shooting, shooting with eyes closed and shooting with shaking hands.

    I could only manage a 275 out of 300 in qualifying--due to fatigue. Group average was 288 for the 13 shooters in my group. The 12 shooters in Group 2 averaged 283. Colonel Kitchen, USMC Retired, using a nice 1911, shot a 300.

    Pasting targets while standing in ankle deep Eastern SC mud is no fun.

    It has always been working fine. The 2-day class was under less than desirable conditions. I shoot it in every match, but I also shoot the Gen2 G19 in every match and often the Gen4 G37 in matches. The 1996 Gen2 now has 86,000 rounds fired.

    Massad Ayoob, he has a good rep !
    What were the most important things you learned ?
    What hours of day did it take place, breaks, etc.
    What was the cost ?

    Read my complete review at http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1454003

    Cost, $800.00 for the 4 day class. Either two day class alone,$400.00

    Greatest range lesson learned--weak hand shooting with McMillan stance.

    Greatest class lesson--everything, without exception.
