Which 9mm glock?

Hey guys! I am thinking of foregoing buying a hi power clone, and using my LE discount to buy a 9mm glock.
(I already own a g36, and a g23)

So between the glock 17 and glock 19 which one would you guys choose and why? I can pick either up for roughly 400$.

19 if you're gonna carry, 17 if not. But, if you want my honest opinion, you should buy both.

since you have their 'compact' in a 23, get their full size in a 17. or go even bigger and get their 34 and do some competitive shooting.

Glock 19.....then buy the 17 when you can afford it. You can never have too many Glocks!

17. As has been said you can get a conversion barrel for your 23 if you want to shoot 9mm out of a compact.

G19. Gen 2 or 3. Take your choice. I chose both.

I own both and vote for the 17. Compared to most other manufacturers full size models,the 17 is really more of a compact. Plus I can't get a full grip on the 19 and much prefer the smooth trigger face on the 17 as well as shoot it better overall.

Since your using you LE discount go with the 17 and pick up a conversion barrel for your 23. I would even suggest you look at the 34. Neither the 17 or 34 are great CCW choices IMHO but you have that in you 36 and 23.
If you stuck on having a 19 save dough some and just pick up a conversion barrel, a mag, 1000 rounds of ammo, or or 500 rounds and a 357 sig barrel too. Oh the joy of Glock's modular design.

I own a Gen 2 17 and a Gen 4 19. The 17 just feels right to me, because it's what I've gripped since Clinton convinced me to get it in '94. The 19 conceals easier, though. I'm glad to have both. I would suggest 19 if you plan to conceal, 17 if you don't. Then, purchase the other later.
