    Thank you sir. I try to put a little bit of Germania in most things I do every day. It's in my blood.

    Glocks are my go to pistols because of many factors. That's not to say there isn't comparible or better options, but at blue label pricing, they're really hard to beat. I only own other pistols because I can and enjoy doing so. That's awesome you've got so much life out of it. Why retire it? Make it an even 100k!

    I own three Gen 3 Glocks. I can honestly say I've never had a hick up with any of them.
    If they need anything it's night sights that are metal. We live in a time where you can buy a Glock and honestly that's the only handgun you'll need​ for the rest of your life.

    First - makes me feel a lot better about the 2 Glocks i own. My Glock 31 is my go to war gun. It is set up for 357sig, .40 and 9mm as the Glock 17 magazines fit, just needed a barrel change and a recoil spring change.
    Second, that is around $20,000 in ammo. That is a lot of practice. Appreciate the post.

    The guy who owns the pistol pictured also has some Glock .40's and has been very disappointed in them because he has seen a good deal more wear and breakages. 9mm is the way to go for longevity according to him.

    He's right. With that kind of round count the 40s tend to take a beating. The design really does shine in 9mm

    Very educating thread. I like my Glocks and they are pretty much my daily ccw. The best use for a .40 Glock is to get a nice cheap LE trade G22 and a 9mm conversion bbl. in my opinion.

    The only mod I have done to all of mine is a Lone Wolf extended slide release. I'm in the process of sending all mine back to Glock for the factory night sight install.

    Glock 19 really is a solid choice.

    Depending how big or small your hands are (finger width) you may want to opt for the 5th gen without grooves. The finger grooves don't match up on many of us with the 3rd and 4th gen. No, It's not a deal breaker, but it's a little annoying. You could always make them disappear professionally or with a dremel if you find out you don't like them after extensive shooting.

    I'm sure you already know, but the factory sights also suck. That doesn't mean they aren't usable, only that they could be a lot better. Hands down my biggest gripe is the finger grooves. Theres a shop locally that has one of those laser deals. They take off the grooves and notch the trigger guard for 40 bucks. I must say that it makes a world of difference.

    I'm thinking about giving the CZ P07 a go around just to shake things up a bit. I'll always keep a g17 and 19 arpund though.

    CZ makes great pistols, and they are currently my favorite.

    Agree.

    I did the SRS-1 on my 75 compact and it’s quite nice. The 7.5 DA pull is very nice.

    But my most carried pistol is also a gen 2 19.

    I have a P07. It's a nice gun. Mine is set up with fiber optic sights, although I may change that to night sights, and decock vs 1911 style.

    The double action is light compared to other traditional DA guns. Don't know the weight though. And single action is scary light....at least for me. I've had a few unintended discharges at the rage. None were unsafe as I was already pulling the trigger however, from muscle memory, in my mind there was still a bit to go before the break. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it breaks before I'm ready. Because of this I do not carry it. Don't want to have a problem if God forbid I had to use it.

    This isn't a gun problem it's a training problem. I've been meaning to take it to a few classes but haven't gotten around to getting a holster.

    BTW, P10c mags are the same but cheaper
