First Glock

Gen 3 19C, just bought it from a fellow club member, he's the first owner. I guess he decided he liked his SAI XDm compact better so he made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Absolutely love it. Here's a pic:

By the way great forum here. I've learned a lot about these pistols by just reading. Thanks!

I never understood the point of a compensated G19, but congrats on your new pistol!

You're not alone! Lots of shooters don't understand this topic.

Here, maybe, this will help: http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/blog.php?b=612

From my understanding, the "C" model was originally for the G18 due to muzzle rise during automatic fire, and the 17L to keep the slide weight down. I can also understand the competition models 34/35 being like that due to the slide also.....Not sure why they make the standard and compact models that way, must be for looks?

Didn't really have a choice, other than not buy it. It's what he had and the price he offered it to me for was a no brainier. The 34's with the slide cutouts that I've seen aren't compensated, it's to save weight. Sorry you guys have compensated phobia. Tough crowd.

Just enjoy your pistol. Be advised though, you will need a non ported factory barrel if you want to compete in production division or stock service pistol. I can't wait to pick up mine.

I dig my Gen3 G19c and use it as my EDC. I'm sure I'll go deaf from the incredible percussion, blind from the muzzle flash, and might just burn my face completely off if I ever have to use it. I'm living on the edge.

Congrats, I love my 19C. It was my main carry for a decent amount of time, now I've got a Gen 4 17 and have another option.

Can you shoot 9x19 as quickly and accurately as you can shoot .22lr?

No?

Do you know why that is? Recoil. Even light recoil moves the gun and forces you to re-aquire. Anything that reduces felt recoil and reduces muzzle rise is likely to help you speed up, this includes compensated 9x19 pistols or 5.56 rifles with muzzle breaks.

Just because the recoil is less than many other choices that doesn't mean further reducing muzzle rise will suddenly not be beneficial.

My first Glock was a g19. After buying the g26 a few months back and found it lighter and easier for me to conceal I love my g26! I carry it almost daily.

That was funny, thanks for the laugh.

My only concern with a compensated piece would be with dirt, fuzz, grime, etc getting into the cutouts especially if using it for everyday carry, the more I think about it. Is this a valid concern or not?

tcaf. I'm no expert on the subject but you can always drop in a non compensated barrel.

That's true, but I'd probably just buy another Glock.

If your concern were valid I'd have blown, at least, one pistol up decades ago!

(Really! I have carried Mag-Na-Port compensated revolver and pistol barrels around, everyday, for years. Believe me, THAT is a lot of: dirt, leaves, pocket lint, loose cat and dog hair, powdered sugar, and donut crumbs!)

I only have two things against the comp models.
One is anchor point shooting, in that it will put a black spot on your clothes.
Two is a dirty front sight.

Other than that there great.
