Sounds like you already have your mind made up on buying the G19. Go for it. You can't go wrong, if you shoot it for awhile then decide you don't like it you can sell it and recover most or sometimes all of your purchase price or do a trade on a different gun. Everybody is intitled to their own opinion and with that being said, in my opinion a gun collection is not complete without a good revolver, a 1911 and a Glock.
