my gen 4 g 22 is about a year old and has been a dependable gun no complaints.

I have two 'similar Glocks....a 17 & 19, two Ruger GP-100, three Ruger P-89's, various 45's, 22's & 380's. You're just weird.

I don't see anything wrong with owning more than 1 of the same type firearm. In your case, they will have distinct differences, so I can see the appeal. I have 2 M&P 45C's and am fine with it. I just really liked the dark flat earth and black frames, so I got one of each. I have several buddies that are 1911 guys and it is not unusual for them to have a dozen 1911's. Let us know how you like the Gen4. I just bought a Gen3 23 because I leery of the Gen4, but I have heard the kinks have been worked out.

Well here I've got
2 Hi Powers
2 P.08 Lugers
2 P.38s
2 S&W .357s
2 ARs
3 1911s

So heck yeah, why not two G23s! I have one in Gen 4, love it and bet you will too. Instead of getting a second, I got a G27 and also had a G22 first. You can share magazines and can always buy a 357 Sig or 9mm barrel as well.

Go Glock or go home!!
So I am new to shooting and looking at getting the G17. Can I change out the barrel to shoot a .40 or .45?

45 won't fit. 40 could fit but it's a mistake. Instead get a 40 or 357 Sig and then a 9mm conversion barrel. Ok to downgrade in caliber, not to upgrade.

Also to save money on ammo you can get a .22 conversion too.
