    1st Glock

    I'm primarily technician but also a licensed personal protection officer on a corporate security team. Which means I have a duty weapon issued to me, but I mainly wear a tool belt. We recently upgraded to Gen5 Glocks and were given the option to purchase our issued Gen3 model 19. Mine was rarely carried and basically brand new, not a mark on it and maybe 1500 training rds down the pipe. No brainer for the price they were offered. As much as I dislike the looks of a Glock, I shoot it better than anything else I own. Glad to have one in the collection and looking at adding a few more.

    If your going to use the Tupperware and shoot good with it, it’s best to get one on sale! I saw a good price on one at CDNN for around $300. I maintained control!

    Can't remember where it was, but I saw G37 45GAP for $284. Police trade in with holster wear, but that still pretty cheap.

    Very nice Tupperware ya got! Swore I'd never own a Glock myself, but when I held the G43 in my hand for the first time, I had to get it...... It has since become my EDC.
    Congrats on a good deal, and another addition to the collection!

    You can always sell it at an overcharged price to a fanboy!

    I picked up the second g19 on Friday morning, it took too long to get the paperwork in order so I had time to peruse the used inventory. I have been thinking about picking up a pocket pistol and they had a Ruger LCP trade in for $130. Needless to say it went home with me. Couldn't leave without a pocket holster, so one of those went too. That should do it for handgun purchases for awhile.

    I love those sticky holsters.

    Don't ever think that because I'm peaceful, that I've forgotten how to be violent.

    I had never even heard of them, but I'd never shopped for a pocket holster either. They had several less expensive brands, but the Sticky felt the best in my pocket.

    It's awesome. I carry mine every day. It's heavily worn, think I've had it about two years, still sticks in my waistband like glue.
    Here's a pic of the other side of it.
