The local range just got a large shipment of G19's in stock....Gun (NIB), 2 boxes of ammo (50's), safe, cleaning kit, tax, gets me up to~$825.00.
Thoughts????????????

BTW......my first handgun purchase.......

What kind of ammo?
What kind of safe?
What cleaning kit?

Not sure what 9mm ammo....what ever they happen to have in stock.
GunVault Mini Standard (~$125.00)
The LGS/range put together a tackle box with mat, cleaning supplies, oil, etc.

Can't you just purchase the G19 without all the swag?

For cleaning all you need is a Hoppe's Bore Snake ($14 or so), some Hoppe's #9 ($8), perhaps a can of Ballistol ($12), some patches, a toothbrush, and an old microfiber towel. Maybe some gun oil, although the Ballistol itself is sufficient. All of that for less than $50.

Sure......$579.00 plus tax........

(The cleaning kit is $39.00 includes case and the above, but no bore snake)

My local stores charge $499 but its my understanding that Glocks are harder to get nowadays.

So $579 doesn't seem too bad.

And you could do a lot worse than a G19 for your first gun. G19's are great pistols.

That's not a bad price for a G19, and the Gen4 G19s are great guns. I have a Gen 4 G23 and just bought a Kahr PM9. I'm thinking if I'm going to go 9mm a new G19 to go with the Kahr might just have to be my next gun purchase.

Wanted to add:

$39.00 is high for a cleaning kit. Chances are it comes with bits for a bunch of calibers you don't have and will never have. Buy the pistol alone if you want but get a caliber specific pistol cleaning kit.

G19 is great gun. You may be able to do better on the other stuff. But get the G19.

go to gunbroker.com, look at pricing there. $575 is a bit high, and $850.00 is a complete rip-off.

You need the pistol, a Boresnake, some CLP, and that's it. Get your ammo at Walmart.

My first gun was a G19, and I'm still very happy with the purchase. I haven't been shopping prices lately. But 579 isn't ridiculous (it is on the high end, but I know prices are up). You'll need a holster too. And a gun belt. I'd get a holster before a cleaning kit, personally.

A lot of Walmarts barely have ammo anymore. I'd say I've found zero of any of the calibers I use in my last thirty or so visits. They say it goes away a few minutes after they stock it, and I'm not going to set up a lawn chair waiting.

1. We all know ammo is hard to come by right now.
2. The OP lives in a different state. His Walmarts might have ammo.

A suggested you probably would do better on the other stuff elsewhere. The price is at the higher end but not terrible right now. The Glock 19 is a great first gun - it does alot of different things reasonably well.

If you are asking me I'd just buy a G19 if you can find one. A cleaning kit can be picked up anywhere. As far as the safe goes I'd pass on it.

If you are a peace officer, military or retired military, you can buy a G19 with standard sights for $398.20 or one with Trijicon sights for $477.40.

Just do it.

Pick up the other items separately as needed.

Thoughts: all things considered, $825 is a small price to pay for your life and some peace of mind. Pay a little extra and get it with night sites, believe me.

A gun wont lose too much value over time (all of mine have actually appreciated) and you can pass it along to following generations.

Purchasing the firearm is just the first step though... "Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician." - Jeff Cooper

You need to make sure you fully comprehend firearms safety, learn how to use the weapon, and practice.

G19 is a fine gun, although frankly a XD9 fits my hand better. Look up disassembly/assembly videos on youtube and do a 25 cent trigger job. It's a great way to familiarize yourself with a new gun.

Buy a Hi-point C9 for $150.

They are American-made firearms and several people have had no problems with them...

Several. What's that? Like, three? Five?

Ok, several people have had no problems with them.

But the other million or so owners wish they'd bought a Glock.

OP, ignore his advice.

Buy a Glock.

My brother's uncle owned a Glock and it was not reliable at all.

Plus, why give more money to a foreign company in a country that probably aided the Nazis in WWII??

Yes, I am being completely facetious and using the same logic others use when defending certain vehicle brands...

Was not a big fan of the 9mm, was not a big glock fan, now I have 3, a 27 the 30sf and the 19. The 19 is a great one so go for it.

Store ? ?

I carry mine on my hip-bone....all the time.

IF you are buying it for carry, buy almost any Glock, 9m is good start....( G-17 is the slightly larger version, first version,actually...)

Glock may be the best combat, low maintenance, accurate, affordable to most, large-cap pistol one can purchase.


$800 plus for the package ? Hell, I figured the 100 rounds of 9m ammo for that price was a good buy....throw in the G-19, and, well....


LOL, I am Out....shoot safely, dudes and dudettes... :cool:

There is no "perfect" handgun.. if there were then hanging out on forums like this this would be boring. No perfect combo of stopping power / accuracy / ease of carry / ease of concealment/ease of maintenance / reliability in a street fighting handgun you could trust your life to.

But the G19 comes awfully close...

The one and only used Glock I bought was a complete disaster. It wouldn't fire more than a couple of rounds without jamming. I tried different ammos and bought new magazines for it with the same response. Gunsmith told me to bring it back and he'd make it right. I told him to refund my money and I would order a new Gen 4 G23 from him. He did and I did and in 500-600 rounds it has never had any kind of failure. Don't know what the first ones problem was and don't want to know but I suspect it was caused by the previous owner.
