If you only buy one gun, you can't go wrong with a Glock 19 (any version, really). Some might say these guns aren't particularly pretty to look at, but they are the most reliable guns I have ever used and are super-easy to clean and maintain. I have shot high-quality ammo, low-quality ammo, self-reloaded ammo, FMJ, hollow points, you name it, and it shoots it all with less jams, stove-pipes or failure to feed/eject than any gun out there. Heck, you could probably load up some rocks off the ground and it would shoot those, too! (Ok, that's a joke) If you want a firearm for self or home defense, what more could you ask for? Best designed gun ever, and the #1 selling gun in the world (I think) because of it.

I purchased three guns from Buds and every one was delivered in two or three days. Can’t beat that Thanks Buds

Awesome pistol. I threw some Talon grips on it and ran a few boxes of ammo through it, shot great. Perfect size for concealed carry. Popped a streamlight on it later, great nightstand pistol too.

I'm LE officer in NYS and have always wanted one of these. My father is a retired NYPD officer and has been carrying his G19 gen1 for 30 years now. God only knows how many rounds he's put through his, but it still works like the day he took it from the box. I've already put close to 700 rounds through this new G19 gen3 without a single malfunction. This is truly the Honda Civic of firearms, 100% reliable, easy to aim, easy to shoot, and easy to clean. I own many different 9mm platforms such as the G22, G26, Berettas, and a smith or two, but when the day is done, this is what I'm now carrying as an off-duty sidearm.

I bought this back in 2012 and have over one thousand rounds of cheap range ammo through it, it is one of the few firearms that I own that has NEVER failed to function. You can't ask for much more than that. (Sorry it took me so long to get around to leaving a review)

The Glock 19 is effectively a reduced-size Glock 17, called the "Compact" by the manufacturer. It was first produced in 1988, primarily for military and law enforcement. The Glock 19's barrel and pistol grip are shorter by about 12 mm (0.5 in) than the Glock 17, and it uses a magazine with a standard capacity of 15 rounds. The pistol is compatible with factory magazines from the Glock 17 and Glock 18, giving the Glock 19 available capacities of: 17 rounds (standard magazine with +2 extension), 10, 17, and 19 (standard Glock 17 magazine with +2), 24 and 26 (standard magazine with +2 extension) and the 31 (standard Glock 18 magazine with +2 removed) and 33 rounds of the Glock 18. To preserve the operational reliability of the short recoil system, the mass of the slide remains the same as in the Glock 17 from which it is derived. With the exception of the slide, frame, barrel, locking block, recoil spring, guide rod, and slide lock spring, all of the other components are interchangeable between the models 17 and 19. Shoots great!

I ordered this Glock in mid July it arrived in quick timely manner.The ffl had it like 4 days later including the weekends because I placed my order Thursday and was here by Tuesday.The part that took the longest was the background check because a lot of people are buying guns due to election year,the violent protests and covid.The gun itself though spectacular it’s a Glock the 19 is the best one of them all in my opinion.This is my 4th 19 i had a gen 4 and sold it because I needed the money.I decided to get a gen 3 because it’s my favorite gen next to the gen 5,I was surprised I was able to snag this from buds because all my local gun stores have no glocks and said it’d be awhile till they got some in due to covid.When I saw that buds had one in stock I immidietly added it to cart and bought it.I recommend this gun highly if you get a Glock 19 buy a gen 3 or Gen 5 you won’t be disappointed.

the gun is fine, just upset with the hoops I had to jump through to purchase the gun and to top it off, since I live in a restricted state and this gun was offered with 2 standard magazine, they confiscated the 2 included magazine and did not offer to replace them with the 2 10 round magazine, so I had to purchase additional magazines and I was also force to join team buds to purchase as it was team buds only item, which is totally BS.
so to sum up the gun is fine, but if you want it, you have to pay extra to get it and pay even more for stuff you should have gotten with the purchase in the first place.
I did not have this problem with any of my other firearms purchases
