Hello Glockers! So i bought my first handgun a couple days ago. A Gen4 Glock 19. First of all let me say i LOVE it! I did alot of research before i purchased it and wasnt sure if glock was the way i was going to go for my first handgun, all of my experience before this was with rifles. I had originally been torn between the G17, Sig 250, FNP-9, and the XD. But i got to the shop and the G19 stole my heart, it points and feels like its part of me. I Love My Gun. So i have now started to look into some upgrades, and run into some questions. The slide release is reaaaally stiff and starting to wear a hole in my thumb from doing repetition drills... - will this smooth out and loosen up with time, or should i go ahead and buy the extended slide release for it? also i saw on a site that they had the extended slide release or a slide release with sure touch? whats the difference? which is better? will i have to modify my gun at any point to fit any of this on there? - same questions apply to the magazine release i have purchased tijicon tritium night sights, and a pearce grip extension. im thinking about buying a hogue grip cover, to lighten up on the abrasiveness of the stippling. so anything else i should be buying accessory wise? i intend to buy a green laser, purely for coolness factor, im more of an iron sights shooter. im thinking about lightening up the trigger, not for any practical reason yet, because i have actually gotten to shoot it yet, been so busy since i bought it. but i read that the stock trigger is a little crappy? is a trigger mod recommended? i intend to use this for a PDW, but still want accuracy on the range, and would like this to be a good all around weapon in case SHTF. - will a trigger mod effect any of this for good or bad? i really appreciate you reading my huge wall of text and thanks in advance if you can give me advice on any of these thoughts, and maybe recommend some things to look into for upgrading and modifying my new glock! edit. - i have a Glock 19 Gen 4 RTF2, im now reading that the abrasiveness of the grip isnt just in my head? its a thing other people have noticed as well? is the hogue grip cover the best way to combat this?
