Definitely not my first hand gun that I have handled, but the first that I actually own.
I was going to go with the 17, but the wife is more comfertable with the 19, and my buddy just happened to be selling his 19 with a chipped guide pin. So I got it off him for $300, and ordered a new Stainless Steel guide pin for $20 shipped.
End note, here is my first toy I got for $320. It came with (1) Glock 10 round, and a couple other mags. As I understand 15 round mags will extend from the bottom, so I don't plan on getting any for the 19.
So, it is missing one Glock mag, and the formed Glock case, but I figured $300 was a good price.
It is the first of many I hope to have one day. Not just glocks, but a healthy assortment.
I still remember Tom's Safe when I bought the tool box from him... still jealous!
