Glock 19

I have a Glock 19 Gen 5, the compact model chambered in 9x19mm. This might actually be my favorite Glock to shoot because of how natural it feels in my hand. I should try the larger back strap.

I purchased this firearm in 2022.


Hornady 135 gr. Critical Duty +P
Reasonable accuracy (15-rd group 3" at 7 yds). Recoil is fine. No muzzle flash. LG Score: 3.14 cu-in.
Cycled 25 rounds so far without issues.

The items below are in order of the "LG Score" I calculated, basically the volume of a cylinder calculated from the average depth and average diameter. An expanded bullet doesn't really create a cylinder, but it is a reasonably objective way to balance penetration depth with bullet expansion. The 147 gr. Hydra Shok I carried in my Glock 26 for years is one of the worst performers because of how terrible the bullet expansion is.
