Default Brand new to Glocks

So, I've been trying to get my girlfriend interested in guns recently. She fell in love with the Glock 19 but wants the compensated model. So, we ordered her one. It's not in hand yet, but should be soon. However, while shopping around, I found a used Gen3 G17 with a lot of work done to it. The deal was too good to pass up.

Nice! I've never been much of a Glock fan...until recently. My buddy picked up a G17, and I loved shooting it. While I still think Glocks are pretty ugly, its hard to argue with their ability to perform. Ill be picking up a G21sf in just a couple weeks.

Short frame/slim frame whatever you want to call it. I'm a big fan of the Gen 4 21.

SF's have a smaller diameter grip...

IIRC, the G-4's have interchangeable backstraps so it seems like kind of a moot point now...

Hmmm. I'm not familiar with those. I'll have to do some research.

So after carrying my new 17 yesterday, I've decided that the Galco holster is came with would get me killed. Almost impossible to draw from. So, today we go holster shopping.

Yeah. I have a Kydex Hybrid for my LC9. Think that may be the proper route.
