Very soon I’ll be picking up my shinny (well shinny for a Glock) .. Glock 19 CA legal 9mm.

I can’t recall the Gen version at the moment or if it has a muzzle rail, as I was quite excited to finally find one I could purchase. My local gun shop had ordered about eight Glocks back in April and I bought one of the two that finally arrived in OCTOBER !

Anyway, I’m trying to think of some accessories that would be suitable for use for a Range/HD pistol.

The Glock (being new) of course comes with its basic case and cleaning brush and the CA approved cable lock ... which I personally find to be junk that a ten year old could get open.

Hoping a few people here may have some accessory or shooting tips for a first time Glock owner.
I have Eye & Ear protection, so that’s covered at least.

Of course I’ll need ammo which maybe “buy whatever I can find” at this point, as I’ve noticed the shops seem to be a bit thin on the shelves.

The Glock won’t be my first gun, though it’s my first semi-auto and it’s been many years since I last went shooting.

Ok, shoot me some thoughts.

If you don't have a decent cleaning rod, I love these proshot rods, I probably have a half dozen of them now. I leave a rod with jag on it and rod with a brush on it for the calibers I shoot most so I can clean faster (yeah, first world difficulties).

Get good quality patches too, they make a difference. I use proshot patches as well.

Your gun will be a Gen3 and does have an accessory rail (only Gen Glock can sell in Cali).

You'll likely want to change the sites at some point but what you think you want on a gun and what you will want will change as you get experience. The factory sights aren't as bad as folks try to make them out to be. Shoot the gun for awhile and you'll have a better idea what you want.

One thought, with ammo as scarce as it is, picking up some dummy rounds or a snap cap would be a good idea for dry fire practice.

Welcome to the forum.

I think you're G 19, I do mine and have a Gen 4 and 5 and looking to find a G19C.

Not new to shooting but new to semi-autos, make sure you have a firm grip. Glocks and other semi-autos can have failure to feed from 'limp wristing'. Basically the shooter anticipates the recoil and adsorbs it with the wrist and forearms and robs energy needed to properly cycle the pistol.
