How would one do that? Do you use a hammer or a vise?

Nah, just use the appearance of innovation. One of the oldest tricks...er...I mean tools...in the marketing biz.

200 rounds (assorted 115gr fmj from four different manufacturers - Aguilla, UMC, Briwning, Winchester) down range with new Glock 19X this morning. No issues at all. 17 and 19 round mags good to go.

Only thing will do is change out the OEM night sight for some truglo fiber optics, since can see better with those.

50 rds Glock X19-out shoots- just point press the trigger and have fun. When I shoot, I do it with a purpose in mind- D Boy Paul Howe has a simple 25 rd course just to keep you up to speed.
A certain federal agency was told they will probably be switching to 9mm. They all carry a different caliber than other agencies ����

Just can't say enough good about this Glock 19x .

I hope Glock expands in this concept and creates a 29X and a 30x. Please do.

Do you use the 115 gr for SD?

Yea. They can't get their shit together on a common caliber.

.32 - 45 - 38/357 -.45 -38/357 - then pussed out on the 10mm - 9mm - .357 SIG

Where was I?

I've owned all but the .357 SIG, but know a Cop who had an AD with one. It sure fucked his wrist up.

No finger grooves, a very crisp trigger, slightly flared magwell, night sights, and the FDE color, thats it for me.

Love mine. The AAT gun store in Norman, ok cant keep them in stock.
The upgraded barrel and trigger system alone is worth buying the X19

Damn you guys. Just when I'm saving for a wedding in July.

Maybe the relationship will turn South.

Buy the gun. Use the Justice of the Peace for the wedding.

Missions accomplished.

Offer them half the cost of the wedding to elope. Buy Glock 19X's with the savings.

Local gun store I help out at just got word of an across the board 20% increase in pistol caliber ammo from his distributor(s). Just when it was starting to become reasonable

Currently no distributor has a Glock 19 or 17 Magazine in stock, sold out everywhere. Gunbroker has them.

Wow. I haven't been paying that much attention on the 9mm. I'm ok on ammo as I have a pocket 9mm I'm currently carrying for comfort.

This is getting goods reviews and the piece looks real nice. Though, I was surprised posted by none other than TFG with good with positive comment.

The timing just sucks.

(The elope thing -BTDT- I'm pretty sure this one is a keeper - or I would not even consider it)
