sharing thoughts, stories, and general interests
I own exactly one gun, the Glock 19 Gen 4. And let me tell you, the Glock 19 Gen 4 (Gunivore.com) is pretty much the greatest gun ever. I mean, obviously that is just my opinion, and that means that it is not necessarily objective fact, but the fact of the matter is that my opinion on the Glock 19 Gen 4 is definitely shared by many others. In fact, it is not only my opinion on the Glock 19 Gen 4 that is shared with many other people, but my opinion on the Glock line of pistols in general as well. You see, Glock is considered widely as the most reliable handgun, and the Glock 19 Gen 4 is definitely a chip off the old block. And when I say chip off the old block, I mean it. With the new Gen 4 models of Glock, Glock introduced some innovations that greatly increase the lifespan of the gun. This is pretty much the design motto behind the Glock line of pistols, a sturdy gun that will last. And let me tell you, my Glock 19 Gen 4 is definitely lasting. I’ve fired already over ten thousand rounds (I am a very active shooter at my local range) and my Glock 19 Gen 4 is still going strong, it would take a bullet exploding inside of the barrel to destroy my Glock 19 Gen 4, and if that does happen, it would end up being the fault of the bullet, not the gun.
When you take all these things into account (these things being that many people consider the Glock line of pistols to be the most reliable handgun out of all the other handguns and that I shot more than ten thousand rounds out of my Glock 19 Gen 4 without any failure), is it that hard to see why so many people like Glocks? You can even go out and get one for yourself and you’d understand. Glocks are lightweight and affordable, so you can get one even if you are a budget, and use one even if you have weak arms. I would definitely suggest going for a Glock 19 Gen 4 as your first gun, as 9mm guns have very little recoil due to the low weight of that caliber bullets. You might be tempted to get a .45 like the Glock 30, but the recoil on those guys are much larger than on a 9mm like the Glock 19 Gen 4. Unless you already have experience with firearms, I don’t think you should be using something that
has as much recoil as a .45. Even a 9mm might be too much, but you have to start somewhere, and the Glock 19 Gen 4 has a lot less recoil than even other 9mm guns. These are things to consider when getting a gun, and these were things I considered when I chose my gun. All of this together, added to my previous use of Glocks, led me to get a Glock 19 Gen 4.
