New Glock 19

Waiting for my concealed handgun license from the State of Tx.
Bought a 9mm Glock the day before Thanksgiving.
Getting it shipped to a dealer in my area.
Bought 200 rds this afternoon and will be hitting the range soon.
Is there a particular round for the range and everyday carry ?
I also did some research on holsters IWB and OWB.
Any suggestions ?

My G19

I carry either a G19 or G26 here in AZ. I have tried quite a few different defense loads to see what my gun shoots best with. So far, the Cor-Bon 115 gr +P JHP have the best accuracy from both. Not a good round to fire exclusively as it is +P, but it's a good defense load. For holsters, I go with the Don Hume leather IWB when I'm dressed lightly, and I use a Galco kydex paddle holster when I have a coat or jacket. I carry a 17 rd G17 magazine as my spare, because if you have to reload, chances are everyone knows you have a gun anyway, so why not have the extra two rounds? If you have a stock Glock, congratulations. You have the best overall defensive gun available. However, I recommend, and this is just my opinion, Get rid of the sights and get a set of Trijicon three dot night sights, or try the XS big dot sight system. The big dot sights have taken some getting used to, but now they are very fast on target and easy to pick up in any lighting condition. From one Glock owner to another, hope I helped.

good advice

corbon makes a great defense round. check out their DPX line too. I also agree with the trijicon night sights, I like them a lot better than glock's stock sights
