    I'm considering using a g19 for duty. I'm wondering if any of you have used or currently use the mid-size.

    Well...the question would have to be...what do you do?

    As in...what kind of "duty"?

    I'll be using it for security.

    Good choice.

    Make sure to compare Gen 3 and Gen 4.

    Personally I would choose the G17 over the G19 for security carry if you are open carry, for conceal carry the G19 would be better for concealment..

    Many departments issue either a compact (19/23) or a full size (17/22). For us, it is a choice. I chose the full size pistol because that is what I am used to shooting. A lot of people are more comfortable with the compact size pistol; it's all your personal preference.

    Shoot both sizes and see what you like best.

    I carry the full size 17 on duty with my department. I'll be switching to a 21 soon. We have a couple officers who carry the 19 and one that carries a 23. Whichever feels best to you is all I can say.

    I appreciate the responses. I'm thinking 19 since its a little more versatile but we'll see. I've shot the 17 already and loved it. I'm planning to soot the 19 on a few days and I'll make my decision then. Most of the guards are carrying the 19 and a few carry the 17.

    I have a G17C and a Gen4 G19. I like them both and I only need to buy 17 round magazines.

    I would go with the full size 17. If you have smaller hands, then the 19.

    I'm still trying to decide between the two. I know it's possible to conceal the 17 but not as good as the 19 I'm sure. My main thing is being able to use it for duty and/or cc when I choose to leave the subcompact home. Decisions decisions

    Well if you do decide to get the 17 and you want too use it as cc to, dnt let the size of it scare you into not being able to carry it i carry mines sometimes with no problems at all no printing no nothing, all you need is a good iwb holster and a good gun belt and keep it moving. But on the other hand the 19 can be used for duty use and cc. Basically its prefrence on round count and even then you can just get g17 spare mags and there you go. Either 1 would be fine you can conceal both. Basically its up to you.

    Lol. Yeah maybe later. I want the mid and compacts. I'll take the g17 mags but not much of abnees for it. Well see though. Then I'll get the 23 to go with my 27. Then I want the g30 and g21. I think the 21 will be the only full size I get.
