I hear Gen-6 is going to have a hammer, manual safety, and actually good sights.

Just put a G32 gen 4 on layaway today.

You will buy a glock. And another. And another.

It's good to have spares.

Glock 9mm was the first combat auto I ever had. I shot low and left of anything I aimed at. Over time I learned my grip and trigger finger and lack of range time were the problem and now I shoot dead center.
I no longer blame the gun.

This was my experience as well. Once I corrected my poor shooting technique, the Glock turned out to be very accurate.

Handled the Gen. 5s at the range Friday (but not available yet for range rental use..). Sweet! But; I'm thinking something like the 36 in .40 would scratch my itch.

As far as I know, only the 17 and 19 exist as Gen 5 at this time.

My 19.5 also came with Ameriglos. I thought the rear was off a tad (need to be drifted a tiny bit left), but it shoots fine so I left it as is.

Here's some fresh pictures of my G17 with the 6MOA Type 2, and it's (mostly) twin brother G19. The G19 is stock internally, to meet department standards for CCW guns, no magwell, no RMR as well.







Here's my other G17

True form every quality handgun, I think. Smile

This thread started the same day I joined the forum. Never posted in this thread before, as I’m not going to post just to say “nope, not me”. I had zero interest in Glock. I have one token Sig, a P229. I like it, but it’s pretty much a safe queen. Admittedly, I’m a H&K fanboy. My wife has been going to the range with me lately and always wants the P30sk. So today I bought her one for Christmas. It was right next to the Gen 5 Glock 19. I asked to hold it. The experience confirmed my belief. Did not like how it felt in my hand. Out of curiosity, and I don’t know why, I asked to hold the Gen 4. Never held one before. Wow, I think they used a model of my hand when designing it. Long story short, I own a Glock.

Ok I finally did it, I order a gen 5 Glock 19 a couple days ago and hopefully I should have it middle of next week. I shot about 75 rounds out of a rental gen 4 and can't wait to get out with the gen 5 side by side with my 320.


It's kids like you, who make this bus late.

Been really enjoying my Gen 5 G19 over the past few months. So much so that I am seriously considering buying a Gen 5 G17 for Christmas as one, I've never owned a full-size model Glock, the G17 is the model that started it all, and last but not least, I have a GSSF Blue Label purchase coupon available to use. I suspect that Glock may raise prices in January too, so now would probably be the time to lock in a G17 at the current Blue Label price. Decisions...decisions...

Went this afternoon to my Blue Label dealer and picked out my Gen 5 G17 from a couple different ones I looked at and tried out, did the paperwork, provided ID and CWP, but evidently NICS here in Florida was getting pinged so hard that waited almost an hour and had only moved up to number 4 in the list. It was already 15 minutes past the shop's closing time, so I'll have to go back to pick it up some time this coming week. At least the one I picked out and decided on has a superb stock trigger, felt virtually identical to the one I picked out on my Gen 5 G19 a few months ago. And yes, while it was only very slight, there was a detectable difference between the one I picked and the others I felt. Definitely looking forward to picking it up! Smile

Were they calling NICS? If so, they should look into the online portal. It is much quicker.

This the reason why I love the fact that Arkansas allows those with concealed handgun licenses to skip the NICS check.

Even though I can carry just with my LE creds, I keep my CHL current for situations like that.

When I bought my Gen 5 G19 from my Blue Label dealer a little while back, I just showed DL, LE ID, and CHL, filled out the 4473, paid, and walked out.

How do I get one? There are no GSSF matches in my area, and as far as I can tell, competing in one is how you get it.

You need to sign up for membership in the GSSF and be a member for at least a year. I've had a membership for quite some time now, but it is not necessary to compete in a match to get the coupons. You get one a year.

As for the NICS, from the perspective of the law abiding consumer, I agree that it would be nice to not have to get a NICS check if you have a CWP. The only problem with that is if someone has something recent on their record and the shop only goes by the fact that they have a CWP in hand, they could very well be selling a gun to a recent felon and not know it. I'm ok with having to do the NICS check as long as I can (usually) take delivery of the gun the same day.

The Blue Label dealer in my area is one of the largest volume dealers in Florida if not the South East and does use the online system. There are no shops I deal with, not even smaller ones that have used the call in method for some years now. Florida FDLE were just being overwhelmed with the number of online requests being sent through the system for processing. All Florida purchases go through FDLE, not directly through NICS which is why there can be delays in Florida when they get overwhelmed. Your chances of having to wait until another day also exponentially go up depending on how close to closing time you show up at the shop. In my case, 45 minutes is usually plenty as the checks normally are relatively instant to only a few minute wait, but for obvious reasons, the system was much busier.

A notable observation while I was there was that including myself, every other person in the shop, whether LE or civilian had a Glock pistol case in front of them for purchase except for one rifle (A LWRC) that one gentleman was purchasing. In the time I was there, close to 10 Glocks were sold/being picked up, and that was just around closing time.

While talking with the gun sales guy handling my purchase, he did mention that they were sold out of the M&P M2.0 Compacts. Those seem to be selling real well too along with the other M2.0 models.
