My wife is set on a Glock 17 (Gen 3). I’m in full support. She and I have tried the XD 9 and the S&W. We decided the Glock was best. A few questions before we get it. How much should we spend on it? What’s the max I should pay? The range gun we used was beat to a pulp and never cleaned unless a malfunction. She experienced about a dozen malfunctions in just 60 or so rounds we fired through it. The people at the counter said it’s probably a “limp wrist” causing the next round to jam or previous brass to stovepipe. I would think the Glock 17 would function properly no matter the grip. Has anyone heard anything about Gen 4 becoming available in CA? Should we hold out? Anything else we should know about the Glock 17 before we make the leap?
