Hello. Name's Danny I just recently purchased my first firearm a glock 19 gen 3. I was initially going to purchase a gen 4 but they are not allowed in CA without having to jump through some hoops. I decided to purchase my first gun after an attempted break in at my home while we were out on vacation. Thank god for my security system. Looking to learn a lot from you guys.

1st question.
I notice every time I clear my gun.(remove mag, check chamber, aim in safe direction, pull trigger) and then disassemble the slide I see that the spring has come up from its spot and I have to push it back down to where it should be. is that common? I have never fired this weapon.

Welcome!

Gen3 G19s are excellent first Glocks. Might be the only pistol you ever need - it's that versatile.

Yes, the spring offset when you remove the slide is perfectly normal. Just be sure it's all the way down when you reassemble and you'll be good to go.

Are you planning on taking a safety course?
