    I own a compact concealed carry handgun, the Glock 43, which has proven itself reliable and effective for self-defense. However, I must admit that shooting it for extended periods at the range isn't the most enjoyable experience. The small size and lightweight design that make it ideal for concealed carry also translate to a snappy recoil and limited round capacity.


    Considering this, I've been contemplating adding a larger, more substantial firearm to my collection specifically for range sessions. The Glock 17 has caught my eye as a potential candidate. Its larger frame and increased weight could offer a smoother shooting experience, making it a more enjoyable gun for recreational use.


    Despite its popularity, I've yet to come across anyone at the range or in my local gun stores wielding a Glock 17. It's somewhat surprising given its reputation as a reliable and widely-used firearm. However, I'm intrigued by the idea of a range pistol that maintains the familiarity of the Glock platform, particularly in terms of trigger pull and handling, making it a seamless transition from my everyday carry option.


    As a seasoned gun enthusiast and active member of a private gun club, the absence of the Glock 17 in my shooting circles has piqued my interest even more. Perhaps it's an underrated gem waiting to be discovered for those seeking a balance between a comfortable range experience and the reliability of a well-established firearm brand.

    Hi Keelsontell! Welcome to the forum from down here in mosquito haven Florida.
    I have three Glock 17ís. 2 were police trade-inís, the other I got from a civilian. All 3 have Mass Driver compensators on them. My wife hated shooting 9mm before, but loveís it now that she has that Glock. And sheís become a pretty good shot now that she is not flinching due to how light the recoil and muzzle rise is. I must admit, out of the many double actions that Iíve tried over the few years that Iíve been shooting, Iím sold on it (hence having 3). Other than those compensators, which are guide rod mounted, a magwell and grip tape on each has been the only upgrades. Stock triggers. In my opinion, you should definitely get you one, or two or three.
    As an added bonus, we have 3 AR9ís that take the same mags. In a shtf scenario me, wife and son will all be carrying completely interchangeable mags. Have quite a few of the 17 rounders (some bought used for cheap, as they were police trade-inís too), a few 22 rounders and a few 33 rounders that stay with the ARís.
    Since the Mass Driver comes with itís own recoil assembly, that gives all 3 of us the stock recoil assemblies that were removed as back upís. Another added bonus. Those Mass Driverís are relatively cheap on Midway.

    You guys are killing me. Iím about to give my G17 to my son and now you all are singing the praises of the G17. Iíll still have my G19, 26, 43, 43x, and 48, but now Iím thinking I may need a G17 again. Guess if I do it will be a gen 5. Still have 4 more G17 mags anyway.

    I hope today to see if I can mod a G17 mag for the G48. I think it will work.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    I bet your son will love it, so long as he appreciates a real full size handgun. What kind of mod are you doing to that mag?

    If I was to get a Glock and with my wish list still long and costly it would be the 19. To me it seems the perfect size for a crossover from range to carry. We had a Glock rep at the dept some years back with a case full of all the glock models. That 19 sang to me. Many say you either love Glocks or hate them. I'm kind of in the neither category. Baby sat about 40 of them for many years, those were all 21's and I have one of them in my night stand. I just noticed a few days ago it has about an 1/8th inch of dust on it. Guess I'd best wipe it down. Also occurred to me I don't think I've every shot it???? It's not new of course it was a duty gun but it is in fine condition. Guess it might need a range visit.

    Agreed on the 19ís size for carry/range crossover. I was able to score some pretty good owb holsters with an open muzzle to fit with the compís. They are kinda like the competition holsters, hanging outwards, with nice cant. I figure in a shtf scenario, carrying the ARís etc, will be nice to have them so at the ready. They also have a nice thumb break button, at about where the slide release sits, just in case thereís a hand to hand scenario.
