    I'm currently looking at getting a full sized Glock. I currently have a 27,19 a Kahr MK9 and an LCP. I'm leaning Towards a Glock 22 but am also considering a 17. Any suggestions??

    It depends what you intend to do with the full-size pistol. I'm guessing it's for range work and HD. For those purposes, I prefer a 17, or a G34 - more economical practice makes for more practice, which makes for greater proficiency with all your Glocks. To me, the G17 has perfect proportions and all-around handling characteristics. YMMV.

    22 is great and you already have the 27 so you can share 22 mags in your 27.

    I'd go for the G22.

    I got the G22 first, then 40-9 conversion barrel, and then went G17.
    Good luck and stay safe,

    If you can afford it (or think you'll ever be able to afford it) I'd go G22 and conversion barrel to 9mm for plinking and reduncancy. You can't go the other way.

    You do already have two 9s though I would stick with the 17. Also 17 mags would work in 19. In all reality I would buy a 34 :)

    Personally i would go with the 22, but I prefer the .40 over the 9mm and I do have a G22 and love it.
    With you already having a 27 and a 19 either way you go you will have a gun that will share mags and ammo so that is a plus.

    Add me to the G34 preferenece list. Having both if I had known then what I know now I would have two G34s and zero G17s.
