I prefer the 19 as the palm swell seems a bit smaller and fits my hand better and is easier to conceal. You can use the 15 round mags, 17 round mags and even the 33 rounders in the 19 regardless. So its the same firepower, the grip is plenty long enough and the barrel isn't that much shorter. I chose the 19 for the for the versatility and the comfort.

I have the 17 and have put grip tape on the grips as I use it for competition and my hands get sweaty during the summer. I bought the 17 because the way it felt and the length. I love my 17 and would buy it all over again if I had a choice.

I probably should have said that I have decal grips on my Gen 3 17 too. It's getting hot here now and it helps sweaty palms. I got the rubber version of the grips and I really like them.

I really liked those as well till mine came off. I then went with skateboard grip tape and cut it to fit.

I like the 19 better than the 17, perfect size for me. I'd rather have Gen 4 but nothing wrong with Gen 3, try both and choose the fit you like. What I have is the 23Gen4 actually and a 40-9mm conversion barrel.

I have fairly large hands, so I prefer the 17. I also enjoy my G21.

Go with the model that fits your hand the best.

I sometimes carry both a 17 and a 19 with G-17 mags for reloads. Both great guns.

What "cheaper parts" are you referring to? The Gen4 Glocks have several engineering changes from the previous Generations, plus they come with an extra magazine. For $50 more? Seems like a good deal to me.

Where do you get your info? Just curious, because when it comes to Glocks you are way off base.

I'm going to side step the Glock debates and go to the OP:

You did not mention if you intent to carry this? As an EDC the G19 would be the ideal of the two. It is important in any firearm purchase to go rent each and then fire at least 100-200 rounds before making a decision.
