    Went to the local Gunshop today and picked up my first Glock, an OD G19. I Started out wanting a G30, then a 19 RTF. After handling many Glocks they had there I finally decided on this bad boy. I really like the OD frame . I'm planning on sending her off for a grip reduction and texturing. Then when my wallet recovers I'll be slapping on a set of night sites.

    I'm going to the range tomorrow morning to put a couple hundred rounds down the pipe. She's already all cleaned up, lubed and ready to go!

    Thanks for all the advice and informative threads on GT!

    Not to make it shorter, to make it skinnier from front to back. Maybe I used the wrong term. I want to make the back strap smaller.

    My next Glock will most likely be a G19.

    I handled one exactly like it yesterday at the Showplace in Richmond. I almost bought it, but decided that my G36 felt better and concealed easier. I do love the OD color. I went to the show as a dealer told me that an OD G26 I ordered was ready for pickup. When I got there, I found out that a mistake was made and he had a 27 instead of the 26. No big deal as I found out that the G19 fit my hand better than the 26 anyway. Where did you purchase this one? I could have gotten one for 509 out the door. Did you do better?

    Thanks everyone!



    I got this from Florida Gun Exchange, in Port Orange FL. Sticker price on it was $499.00 + tax. $596 out the door with 4 boxes of 9mm range ammo and a free T-shirt. They have the best prices in this area anyway,and they usually have what I want in stock. If they don't have it for some reason they can get it in a week. I was there last weekend looking for a G19 RTF, they sold out of them and said they would have them buy the end of the week. I got to looking at some Glock porn here and really fell in love with the OD Glocks. When I returned yesterday to look at the RTF they had this OD beauty sitting there waiting for me to take home.

    I'm glad I bought the OD, I really like it. I also thought it would be a waste to get the RTF since I'm going to eventually have grip reduction and re texturing
    done anyway.

    Looks awesome. I am in the works on getting my buddy to let go of his 19 so I can put it to good use.
