Glock 19 FDE 9mm Pistol

While looking through my old reviews, I thought I had written a one on this pistol, but I guess I didn't. The Glock 19, as you probably already know, is a very popular and reliable pistol in the compact 9mm market. Even with that background, I'm honestly not really sure why I bought it since I never seem to get much satisfaction from owning handguns vs rifles.

Below are my 15-meter results at the shooting range and they're pretty crappy groups. This might be why I don't like shooing handguns.

But besides my apparent lack of skill, the pistol was great during my year of ownership. It never failed, never had any problems, breakdown is an easy process, and cleaning is super simple. No complaints at all on the hardware side. I got this specific Glock because of its flat dark earth color and the fact that I had a feeling that it was going to be one of those unicorn colors that would only be sold for a limited time; I was correct in this assumption, but that fact didn't turn into huge profits on the secondary market.

Selling the gun locally turned out to be a bit harder than I would've liked it to be, but I did eventually find a buyer. Hopefully this experience will solidify my distaste for pistols and pistol shooting. Rifles all the way.
