Beautiful Early Spring Day - CRAZY WEATHER TIME


Happy to answer questions...ask away


I bought a Glock 19X from KY Gun Company, shipped, for $570. Picked it up on Thursday. Took it out today and put about 600 rounds through it. Most 124 NATO, about 100 rounds of 115 cheapo stuff and 50 rounds of Speer Lawman 147 TMJ, all suppressed with AW barrel.

Short story: Not a single glitch.

Fit and finish is excellent. I love the 17 grip and 19 slide. Feels great.I have older eyes so that white front site post is a challenge, but regardless, it hit what I amed at. The trigger is fine for a Glock trigger. I will be putting an APEX in it. And I will be installing Ameriglo suppressor Sights. Wow does it get filthy. No hiding the crud on a tan finish.My black Glocks "disguise" the stuff after shooting. Speaking of which, the color is fantastic. The slide looks close to a dark bronze rather than FDE. I shot it without swapping in different grip panels for most of the session and did fine but my XXL sized hands found the large beaver tail particularly comfortable.

Accuracy? Far more accurate than me.

I did a lot of timed drills with my steel targets and loved it. Bill drills we're a blast and I pushed myself to failure then backed off and cleaned the A zone from 7 yards several times in 5 seconds. That is great for me. I worked on draws and shooting from "surrender" position. Consitently was hitting center mass on steel from 7 yards at 1.5 seconds. Good enough for me, that's for darn sure.

I enjoyed getting back to 33 yards and banging the steel in sots every second. I always hold right since I know my limitations with the Glock trigger. I gave up fighting it a long time ago. :)

I really like the Coyote extended mags. I removed the lanyard loop and my Taran Extensions worked fine. I am going to clean it and put an Apex trigger in it and new sights. I would like a MOS option.

Excuse the typos I am on my Smartphone and too lazy to go back and fix the typos.

Here is the 19X with a Gemtech Suppressor, Alpha Wolf Barrel and Taran +6 extension, Speer Lawman 147gr 9mm and a cigar on a beautiful day at th

Looks like a good day! Great looking gun. Still wish they would have done it backwards and put a 17 slide on a 19 grip. I suppose this gun wasnt designed for concealed carry but ive still never heard anyone say man I love my 17 i just wish it had a shorter barrel. Have heard that it gives this gun a unique balance compared to other Glocks, do you find that to be true?

Not so sure about the balance issue so much as the fact of the shorter slide and longer frame, I really like it a lot. Feels great it my hand and very easy and fun to shoot, easy to get out of the holster quickly.
