My Thoughts on the Glock 17

I never thought I'd love the Glock 17 like I do. I am here to own up to that and admit it.

My first Glock was a Glock 27, I got it when I turned 21 and I was drinking the .40 Kool Aid because my Dad was an FBI agent at the time. I still have it, but I wish I had gotten a Glock 26 then.

The .40S&W is a good round, but I prefer the 9mm because it is cheaper to train and shoot with and just about as effective. I would go into more detail, but I don't want to get off track.

My second Glock was a Glock 19. I bought it to take carbine courses and have a slightly bigger sidearm than my Glock 27. It was something I could still conceal if I had to, but that wasn't it's primary job, and it filled it's role just fine.

I never thought I would get anything bigger than a compact. Never saw the need or the purpose for me. For a police officer or someone like that, sure, but my main priority for handguns has always been that they fill a role for me in CCW and/or open carry in the wilderness against 4 legged critters. It was a practical approach to avoid a gun like the Glock 17 and only get something smaller, or so I thought.

I ended up with my Dad's Glock 27 from his FBI days, so now I have two of those... and my Glock 27's are my primary CCW guns. They work great and are easy for me to shoot and conceal.

However, last year AIM had some Glock 17 3rd gen trade ins (with night sights) for something like $380. On somewhat of a whim I thought, what the hell. So I got one.

It was seemingly hardly used, just a little holster wear, but not bad. I thought I would throw it in the safe and maybe shoot it at the range once in a while.
