    Well I know they're both 9mm and the g17 is bigger than the g19 but I don't know what the numbering system is all about.

    The numbering is just based off of the order of patents. The 17 was patented before the 19.

    No .380 though really in the US market.

    G17, 18, 19, 34 = 9mm
    G22, 23, 24, 27, 35 =.40 S&W
    G21, 30, 36 = .45
    G20, 29 = 10mm

    I'd go for a larger caliber glock.

    okay, so go with a g21. ;P...

    but i dont think you should look at the g17, g19's being that the MP is very similar, and can give you good results as the so widely known GLOCK..:cool:
