Hi, first time poster here, as well as looking for first Glock. I have pretty much settled on a 19 as I have nothing yet in 9mm. For the past few weeks I have tried to learn all I can about them and all its issues. So far I have concluded: "The issues have been resolved" "The issues persist" "The Gen 3 is proven, get that one" and "The new Gen 3's are just as bad as the Gen 4's" So basically nothing.:embarassed: But I happen to live less than twenty miles from the Smyrna factory in Georgia and am often in the area. Would this sway your decision, the fact that should a problem arise you could drop your gun off at lunch and swing back by after work? Thanks a lot.
