Default Which to buy, a 17 or 19?

If your were going to buy a new 9mm Glock, would you choose a 17 or 19? I'm leaning toward the 19 as it is just a little smaller, but still has a high capacity. There is a sale going on now that I saw in Glockworld where you could get a 17, or 19 or another model for $440. They had 10 round mags, but you can buy higher capacity mags for not much. What is your experience with these two weapons. Thanks.

Dave

What is it's intended usage?? The 19 is slightly more concealable, but you give up a bit of grip length and sight radius.

It really comes down to what feels right in your hand. Pick one.

i personally prefer 19
1) it fits my hands better
2) better for concealment

honestly it personal preference
you should really get to know them both and handle them and shoot them before buying

If you have normal to large hands, the 19 wont feel right in your hands. The 17 is one of the more comfortable pistols I've ever possessed.

I love my 17 but it`s not my only pistol.If only one,the 19,it`s just better suited to more applications,ccw-pp.etc.

I like the feel of my glock 17.I plan on getting a glock 19 at some point just
because of there size.
