Default jumping in with both feet

i own (and love) a gen 3 model 22. i also own an hk usp 40.

well, i did....

yesterday i traded my hk in for a model 17 rtf2 (hey, i like fullsize)

what i want to know, is what is everyone's beef with rtf2? is it glock's red-headed stepchild or something?

asked a buddy to talk me down...i'll get him for this.

now he's gotta talk me out of trading in my 1911 on a model 21

I love the rtf. I have a 22 and 23 in rtf. For me, I think it is what Glock should have made from the get go. Just my $.02.

I've never had, nor handled an RTF2... but what I've heard is the rough texture doesn't feel so good when concealed carrying.

Default are these things rabbits?

just dropped a deposit on a model 21. i'm starting to think a model 20 will be in order as well. does anyone here own a 20? i figure, the 44 mag recoil has got to be more abrupt. i like the glock platform, and figure a 10 in that seems like a decent way to go.

Default RTF great for me

I have a medical condition that causes my hands to persipire. Normally I shoot with gloves or at least with something to dry my hands. I like the Gen4 texture because it feels more, ummm, "grippy" than the previous ones.

As to concealed carry, I could see how it would be an issue if it were pressed against more sensitive areas. <ahem>

I carry my 23 rtf in a supertuck delux and have never been uncofortable. The slide serations do not hurt the fingers, they work quite well. The rtf my not be for everyone, but I like mine a bunch. Go put your hands on one and decide for yourself.

I own a 21sf & I too am considering a 20. At this time I'm really happy with what I've bought, but I also need to buy a G35. I mean really, one can never have too many Glocks...right? I carry my G27 as my CC gun. I bought a 357sig barrel for it, so it is really like having 2 guns. I also bought a 9mm barrel & 9mm mags for it, so it's really like having 3 guns. How great is that?

the biggest part of the fight will be talking myself out of the 50 cal kit for the 20.
