    Just shot 180 rounds with my new g17. No issues what so ever. A smooth shooter. Glock is a solid company. Just for my info, has anybody had problems with their g17 gen 3?

    I am thinking of buying a G17. Any significant differences between gen 3 and gen 4 other than back straps? Just want to get the most Glock for my money

    I thought my gen 4 had a stiffer trigger than my gen 3 turns out it just needed broken in more than my gen 3 did. I got new grips for my backstrap and love my gen 4 17.

    I have heard a lot of great things about the grips on the Gen 4. Might be worth the extra dough. I have a pretty nice tax return coming, might have to pick one up ;)

    I love the grips just not on the backstrap for when I do competitions. Everyone is different ! You will love it.

    I have a G17c 3rd gen and G19 4th gen and love them both. The 4th gen fits my hand a little better and I like the texture over the 3G. I would guess the 4g G17 also has the dual recoil spring. I have several thousand reloads through the G17 and more than a thousand through the G19 with zero issues.
    I think I paid $550 for the G17c and traded an HK USP compact in stainless for The G19 NIB.

    I looked into joining the Glock Sport Shooting Foundation. Since I bought a multi-year membership I am going to get a discount on a new Glock Gen-4 for around $425. Can't wait to get my discount card and head to the gun shop!

    So since you have the two Glocks I'm looking into, what are the pros and cons of a full size vs a compact that you have encountered?
