Looking At A Glock 19

Glock 19

I never cared for the look of a Glock, or the fact that they are made out of a polymer instead of aluminum or steel. While some of my buddies jumped on the glock bandwagon a decade ago, I stayed with the Beretta 92F and more recently the Remington 1911 R1.

To ensure that the group is constant in some of the firearms we own, I decided to buy a Glock. The one I am looking at is the Glock 19.

Several months ago some of my buddies and I went to a shooting range in southeast Texas. They arranged their Glocks on the table and let me test fire several of them. The one I liked the best was the Glock 19.

The 19 fits the bill as a lightweight handgun that I can carry while working around the farm. Something that I can carry while running a chainsaw, or brush hogging with the tractor. A handgun that stays out of the way, lightweight and chambered in 9mm.
