I just bought this impulsively because it was relatively cheap, a few guys in the store used it as their primary handgun, and it felt good firing

How did I do for my first gun?
>>
>>34011130

where is the gun?

all i see is a grenade
>>
>>34011130
You made a good investment. You basically bought a toyota Camry. Nothing flashy, but It'll run for a long fucking time.
>>
>>34011150
Good, that was what I was aiming (heh) for
>>
its a good gun, boring though.. nothing really too it and everyone has one.
>>
>>34011162
Well I mean, it's my first one. I'd rather start with the basic and see if I am interested in investing in more.

I'm more for the home defense and fun on the range than anything

I don't understand how a handgun can cost more than $3,000
>>
>>34011180
well then its perfect for you then.

That's why YOU bought a boring piece of Tupperware. Once the Glock fanboys start talking about sight, trigger, barrel, etc upgrades, you'll slowly wake to the fact that you've been swindled.
>>
>>34011273
I'm really not concerned about how flashy it is, I didn't buy it to impress people
>>
>>34011304
You obviously didn't buy it to have a decent firearm either.

dont listen to him lol, glocks are fine... he's probably never held one in his life.
>>
>>34011317
decent is actually precisely the word I would use to describe a glock
>>
It's fine. It's a jack of all trades. Parts are cheap. Beginners shoot it well.
>>
>>34011333
I know of some Glock owners that'll never hold one again in their lives.

"Decent" is the last thing you want with something meant to protect your life.
>>
>>34011364
it's not going to kill anyone less than another gun

You did fine. Stop worrying and go shoot

No, it's not.

WTF? Oh! I get it. Paperweight too!

Because so many Glawktards change half the parts

Welcome to the Glock perfection club.
>>
The only real problem they have is the grip angle and everything else is a relative criticism. They just don't fit most people well and instead of looking for something else they stick with what everyone else told them to get. People that learn to shoot on Glocks have to unlearn their awkward grip whenever they switch to something else.

No, there are 1000 models that you prefer, there are most definitely not 1000 better models.

The lone fact that you said "cookie cutter" shows you're probably a fucking mall ninja that's only concerned with how flashy or tacticool something is.

If it works, it works. A gun is a tool. It's not a goddamned fashion accessory Paris Hilton.

Ironically, the Glock is also the most tacticool pistol there is. There is a reason why german SF and many police units use the Glock over allegedly superior offerings by HK, Walther and Sig.

They don't function all that well, which is why there is such a rich aftermarket for parts, especially triggers and sights.

honestly this thread is kinda doomed from the start.
Most of the time /k/ is trolling, shitposting, or genuinely don't know that the fuck they are talking about whenever they mention glocks, either shilling it or shitting on it. As someone who WAS looking for advice this shit is fucking annoying. It's like that one retarded kid at the play ground, making random retard noises, you call them a faggot and tell them to shut the fuck up and they just screech louder.

I mean I went into the range and shot them all, it was a close decision between the glock 19 and some s&w, but if I ever want to get a conceal and carry the 19 was a better fit, and I liked the slide release on the glock more

>I will get some more data from the staff but I can tell you from looking at the pile of broken pistols, the Glock Gen 4's are not holding up like before. I don't what it is or what's causing it (we are changing springs all the time in hopes of solving the issue) but we slides are cracking on the left, rear portion of the weapon almost in the exact same spot every single time. Before, it was the Sig P226 with the trigger spring breaking but that was an easy fix. The Glocks have to have the slides sent back to the factory. Even my "Glock guys" have noticed how often and SOON they are failing.

>Acting like it didn't happen but it do

Acting like it happens more often in glawks but it don't. Also, acting like 99% of kbs aren't caused by improper ammo.

I'm not a fanboy (I'd much rather have a Sig for polymer) but the hate against them is pretty unreasonable and generally false. The only legitimate criticism I've heard on them is that they are overpriced. For a first time gun buyer without a lot of experience, it's a safe pick. No finding out later you can't get sights for it or magazines are rare as a straight unicorn or that there is only one holster made for it and it'll cost you your left nut.

Boring, beige, vanilla, cookie cutter, prefab tupperware but such a safe choice that the worst case scenario is that it makes an excellent back up gun.
>>
>>34012929
You are retarded, no offense. They have very strict and tight cleaning/maintenance standards, if you did some reading you would see.
I don't get why you're arguing, they say its crap and you're still shilling for them.
Glock=crap.
next meme please.
>>
>>34011130
All meme's aside, it's a crap gun op. Sell it and buy an HK. VP9 if your a strikerfag, USP or P30L if you're not a fag.
>>
>>34011273

Sights are typically replaced on most pistols, that's why Glock uses plastic, they know you're gonna get Dawson's, ameriglos, etc. Even muh CZ master race appreciates a trigger upgrade. Bbls don't need replaced but how else you gonna suppress? Glocks are the AR15 of handguns. If you're a keep it stock pleb, buy an HK, if you're a discerning customization guy, get the Glawk.
>>
>>34015050
>OP don't buy this gun because this dude who owns a range says they fail after being passed around and mag dumped every day for 2 months even though you'll put MAYBE 500 rounds through it a month. Anyone who tells you otherwise is shilling
Seriously?
>>
>>34011130
It's one of the best choices that you could make. It is simple to operate, reliable, low-maintenance, accurate, and has tons of options for good aftermarket accessories. All you really need though is a new set of quality sights and a good holster and spare mag carrier if you're going to carry it. Also the factory mags are fairly cheap and work well and 9mm is a good caliber for ammo availability/cost and has a wide selection of defense rounds. The 19 in particular is good because it has pretty high capacity, and is about as small of a handgun that you can shoot with a full grip. Ignore the glocknade, muh aesthetics, and muh ergos/trigger fags, the majority of them can't shoot to begin with and/or want some special snowflake pistol that they think will make them cooler. It's not the only gun out there, but it's a good choice. If it weren't, spec ops, tons of law enforcement, and competition shooters wouldn't use them.

It's an ok gun that can easily be customized to suit your needs.

>>34011180
you literally could not have made a better choice

anyone telling you otherwise is either poor, old, or both.

>>34011130
Glocks are trash, you should have gotten an HK instead.
