    the 19 size guns are truly something. I never liked them due to the finger grooves. hand me a full size 17/22, I can shoot the snot out of it. similarly, despite numerous tries (33, 27) I have realized I simply can't enjoy the baby glocks. I can shoot em, sure, but they're bricks and I personally, like a full grip / purchase. my 43x has been a god send. helluva gun. no grooves, I just love the thing.

    19's are excellent firearms. I am very eager to see the new G5 .40s. I want a 23 in a bad way. I have been reading on here about the .357SIG and I used to be invested in the round but got out. I miss it something fierce. I am considering getting back into it - but would prefer a G5 release. As stated above, the lack of grip / purchase in the last few days has me considering letting my 29 go. I love the gun, but I really desire a bigger grip. if they made a 10MM the size of a real 19/23/32, not the weird inbetween subcompact and compact size, I believe it would sell like hot cakes. I get it's a 10 and you can't go full baby glock size. even as the 29 stands now, in that weird middle ground, it is a hand full.

    Anyone like the G19 better for drawing and point of aim? I have a SLR magwell on my 19 and I can get a more consistent draw and point of aim than with my G45.

    Maybe it’s just me but I think it actually can out perform a larger Glock at times.

    The G19 is my favorite Glock. I have three of them, a Gen 2,3,and 4. My second favorite is the G43 which has taken over CC duty.

    My first handgun was a gen 4 19. I sold it like a dum dum and ran the gammit of other manufacturers but I have come full circle back to Glock. If Glock hadn't come out with the 45 I would have gone with another 19.

    I love the G19 but those damn finger grooves killed me. They made it uncomfortable to shoot after awhile. When the Gen5 came out I was head over heels and haven’t looked back. IMHO it’s perfection for its intended purpose

    My first Glocks were Gen 5 G45/19/26, then I got a used Gen 4 G23 and the finger humps kicked my a** until I put on a Hogue Handall.

    Look where the humps are compared to the optimally placed Handall

    Then I sent it to Cold Bore Custom for plastic surgery.

    Now I'm selling my G26.5 and G27.4 frames while I wait for a new Timberwolf TWC-F frame to arrive from Lone Wolf for my SS 23 upper.

    Cold Bores the place to go, he does some very fine work.
