    I have a Gen3 Glock 19 and I was wondering what mag option is best, I don't plan on CC with either, these are mostly for the range, maybe a SHTF situation.

    G17 mags with a +2 baseplate or G18 33 rounders? I realize that there is almost ZERO chance that I'll ever need that kind of capacity, what I'm asking is if I'm going to spend the cash on mags, is it worth the few extra dollars for the hi-caps and do I lose anything by using them over normal capacity mags?

    If they are a good choice, then is there a semi descrete mag pouch for the 33 rounders?

    I have 2 those 33 rounders hi cap mags. Only used twice in 6 months. Basically it's true as you said, we will barely use them. I'd suggest just get the normal G19 mags. 15+1 is good enough IMO.

    I say get the hicap mags. I plan on getting two of them just for range visit. I really hate reloading bullet into the mag. 33rds is like shooting two g17 mag then reloading them again. You see where I'm going. More time shooting, less time roloading.

    I got all .40 cal factory mags they are prefect the 22rd is my fav, but all cheap Asian mags are s*** they jam and r the biggest b**** 2 load I got the 31 rd .40cal mag but after 10 rounds it seams impossible I brused my thumb and broke a speed loader it's the mag spring is stupid strong I wish I had the factory 22rd over the 31rd Asian mag all day factory super high caps are awesome ( don't recommend caring the pistol with it due 2 over fire power with law enforcement and pple wonder)

    My hubby has a G35 but he bought a conversion barrel so he can shoot .40 or 9mm. It's real easy to switch the barrels too. It's like having two guns in one.

    I love my G23 it has a lot of custom work self done 2 it, for 13rd of .40 in a mid sized , small enough 2 hide, large enough 2 carry its awesome shoots like a dream, my next glock will b a g17 or a g 22 I would love a full sized 2 tone glock (black/desert tan) .40 but 9mm are so much cheaper 2 shoot. 22rd mags in my G23 just makes it nice , im currently doing mods 2 my G30 it will b 12rd of .45cal (+2 mag extensions) and have some work done but it's awesome like it is ...

    I like the normal 15 round mags...have you looked at and KCI mags? They're cheap but reliable.

    I would only buy factory mags , guaranteed 2 work / will work, and worth money over a off brand cheap mag ... I like the idea of the g17 with + 2 mag extension makes it like the "sig sauer X5" of the glocks but idk if the 17 with + 2 will fit flush like it should in a g19 u might have a gap..

    Yeah two tone is sweet. But I might get a g31 and get a g22 barrel. I need something that can defeat car glass,doors and insulation. I know a 40 can pass thru most cars but a g31 is calling my name

    Sounds good I think every glock is a good glock no matter what it is I was sold on glock when I beat a bullet out of the action of a new sig due 2 failure 2 feed or more or less a jam and then put it in the glock and "Boom" my fav hand gun , I would kill 2 own a glock 18 C with many 33rd mags but that's beside the point Lmfao . I watched 2 many videos with the desert tan glock and loved it , painting mine is 2 expensive 2 get done correctly , so I'll buy a new 1 b4 I paint mine...

    I enjoy a good sig 1911 m&p or revolver but glocks are top 2 me XD's 2 me are a shotty mix of a sig and glock and 1911 made by S&W ,I have owned 1 and 2 me it was a joke no comparison... But the 2 tone glocks seems cool due 2 the fact it's not just all black I like the sorta Camo appeal that that give of when holstered or on a vest ...

    I shot a xd 9mm before. Man super nice but grip safety I hate. Why does it need that. But really accurate and a smooth shooter

    To each his own I guess. I would only carry Glock factory, but for cheap range mags KCI works for me. I can get 3 KCI for the price of 1 Glock mag from my LGS.

    I'm not doubting that factory mags are better...but for my intended use it really doesn't bother me.

    I had a kimber custom tactical 2 stolen from my car last yr the worst day of my life but I now own a sig 226 enhanced elite and a glock 30 due to the insurance money but I loved that 1911 it was my dads that I actually watched him shoot clay trap shooting targets wile flying through the air on the range, with back about 5 years ago But it's long gone by now... So ik the loss of a good gun...
