    wow, things have changed a lot since my last visit... looks great!

    Anyway, picked up my gen5 19 today and got an opportunity to handle the new 19x. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a Glock junkie.

    The 19X is a BEAUTIFUL pistol. Couldn’t buy it because it’s not on the list but there is one with my name on it and I will be first in line to pick it up when it hits it.

    Not trolling. The shop said he couldn’t sell it to me until it’s on the MA approved roster.

    But the 19x is amazing. Maybe because it was my first firearm purchase in almost two years that I got so giddy... idk. I personally love the coyote brown color too

    So you picked up a non compliant gen5 g19 but passed on a g19x cause it's non compliant? Makes total sense

    The gen5 is on the list. The 19x isn’t. The shop said something about a different sku.

    Trust me, I would have taken the 19x over the plain gen5 if I could.

    What was better about the 19x? I thought it was just a 17 frame with 19 slide?

    Just like that it comes all coyote brown, even the box. Two of the mags have +2 base plates.

    If it's the show I'm thinking about, he's gonna get himself kicked out if he puts Gen 5 Glocks on the table.

    Ok cool. This convo probably doesn't need to continue I think.

    Lol. There were no illegal activities happening. Just wanted to share my thoughts on the 19x.

    Maura is busy making sure the feds shut down tonight...

    I don't really get the 19X. Seems ass backward to me. I'd rather see a 19 size frame with a 17 slide lenth. But I guess that's just more from a CC point of view

    Yea... designed for the military. Makes sense for them. Concealment isn’t a priority.

    Exactly. Was Glock's entry into the competition to replace the Beretta M9. They ended up losing out to Sig... so now it's hitting the civilian market.

    Personally I don't see the appeal of Glocks. I think they're like Cuban cigars. People get all hot for the forbidden fruit when in reality they're not all that special.

    First thing I'd do to a 19X is a grip chop. ;)

    While you were looking at the 19X did you happen to see the G26 Gen5? I think they just came out or maybe next week. That just might be my next pistol.

    ZING!

    Well, while I agree with AM13 on the appeal, I guess I see the market. A 19 frame with a 17 upper can be done with just a spacer today, so...

    I originally wanted the 26gen5 but he didn’t have any.

    Yeah Glock never peaked my interest either. Certainly a well made/reliable gun but doesn’t do anything for me. Even knowing that I can get Gen 4s, 5s, 19x etc, still don’t care to own one. To each their own of course....

    Guess I got lucky, I'm picking one up today. I like to be an early bird.

    Actually yes - many in fact. I've taken several vacations overseas where they are readily available... This is especially on the Caribbean islands. Personally I think the Dominicans are more pleasant. Richer in flavor and have a more pleasing aromatics about them.

    To each his own then. I really like Partagas and Monte Cristos.
