    Bought a G19 Gen 4 despite the rumors. Now my wife won't let me have it. GRRRR.

    Flawless function. Loving the grip improvement though I do fine on the Gen 3 frames as I have big paws. She really likes it...it's hers now I guess.

    No issues in first 100 rds using 3 different mags.

    ETA: 124 grain Fiochi. Next will try 115 and then 147 in both FMJ and HP config...
    I will test 400 more before I declare it home D ready:)

    Also took new G30 SF to the range...wow, that thing is a soft shooter! Also, functioned w/out a hitch. Oddly, to me, it seemed it was a softer shooter than the G19! Is that possible? I know it is subjective...but wow...

    Bravo! Foicchi ammo is really nice stuff. I bought some on DannyR's recommendation and I'm glad I did. S&B is pretty nice stuff, too.

    Excellent! But then it's a Glock. A man can't do better. Nor can a woman. Appreciation of Perfection is after all, not gender restricted!

    Buy a Gen3 G19...and some 3m treadtape.

    She will leave it alone because it's not perfect, you won't have any regrets because it is.

    UPDATE: 100 more rounds on Saturday between 5 different shooters. Wife and one of her female friends and 3 guys, 1 with zero experience prior to Saturday.

    All loved the feel of the G19 Gen 4 and there were ZERO issues. I was watching closely for any FTF, FTE etc. I expected something but the soft grip by the females didn't cause any issues.

    A guy who shoots 1911's and carries an HK squeezcocker now wants to buy one since the Gen 4 now fits his hand.

    My wife's friend who tried out my Gen3 G26 and wife's G19 Gen 4 plans to pick one up next week.

    FYI, the SN begins with "PUHxxx" so maybe things are fixed at this point??

    ETA: ammo was 115 gr Fiochi and Federal at this shoot....
