Allan had an issue he wanted to protect himself yet he didn’t know how. He eliminated a bunch of options (e.g. taking a karate self defense class) or getting a gun. He decided to do both. So after registering for a once a week Wednesday night 6:30pm karate class he looked into getting a glock 19.
Now you need to understand Allan did not understand what exactly a glock 19 was. He was a peaceful person he just needed to protect his family from the dangers of their dangerous neighborhood. He went onto Google and found some information about the glock 19 this is what he discovered.Check out Gunivore.com for more great info on guns.
The information was a short article that reads as follows: Glock all started back in 1980 when the Austrian steel and plastic company Glock KG, that was at the time headed by Gaston Glcok was approach by the Austrian army. The Austrians asked Glock to develop a new service sidearm for them to replace their old ones that they had used during World War II. Glock, on behalf of Glock KG, accepted the invitation and the Glock firearm company was formed in 1982 following a series of exercises and tests Glock officially became the type of firearms used by the Austrian military. They use them until this day.
The glock 19’s first generation model was first developed in 1988. It was created as a compact version of the glock 17, the glock model that directly predated it. The next generation of the glock 19 was developed in 1993 and the third generation of it in 1998. Finally in 2010 the Glock 19 generation 4 was put on the market. The generation nomenclature (a fan made word) was recognized by the company itself.
Now the glock 19 didn’t go through to many changes yet each version of it made a difference in recruiting new generations of handgun carriers for both home defense and service needs. Each of the versions of the glock 19 were a little bit different though.
The glock 19 version 1 was not so mass produced. Very few additions of it were made. Even less of them were imported to the Umited States. Today they are considered a collectors item. The gen 1 has grips with angles that very much resemble the early model of the glock 17.
Now that let’s talk about the other great versions of glock 19. The generation 2 of the glock 19 has a textured grip and a whole different kind of finish. Now that we are moving into the 1990’s will focus on the great versions of the glock during that era. The glock 19 generation 3 has a whole new different kind of grip, accessory rails, finger grooves, double pins, a tenifer finish, a thumb rest, and double pins and a thumb rest. Finally will talk a little bit about the glock 19 generation 4. This version of the glock 19 had a great stippled grip and larger magazine release button.
So Allan decided to get a glock 19
