Looks like a smarter choice. I like a good gen 2 17, but not one that has been chromed or polished.
The 19 is one of those pistols, at least to me, that seems to be that just right size, as far as being big enough to control and shoot well, but not so large that it is a pain to carry.
(That was an actual Yellow pages listing for a local doctor. Obviously a typo, but the doc is also known to be a livestock farmer)
