I've owned my Daniel Defense M4V11SLW for 4 years now but I've never owned a pistol. I also have a CZ Double Barrel shotgun. I'm now in the market for a Glock 19 for mainly home defense and periodic range fun. I've done a fair amount of research and I'm torn between getting the gen 3 or gen 5. I want my wife to able to shoot the gun and I've read that the gen 3 is not as ideal due to the grips. She's a petite 5'3". I'm planning to buy the gun from GlockStore in San Diego. I want to get the tactical trigger job on the gun to reduce the trigger pull to 3lbs. Since I'm doing this, I'm not sure if it even matters which gen I get. What's your guys input on the matter? Thanks.
I own a GEN5 G19. And I love it. I've held and shot a lot of the older Glock, and found them to be uncomfortable and the older Gens tend to throw the casings at your face. Newer models have better internals and don't have this issue. Personally I'd get a Gen5 all day.
Good luck dealing with GlockStore.
