I'd never get rid of a gen one either! I had three gen 3 17s the one I traded being sort of an extra. My OCD only requires me to have 2 of everything so it was okI don't know if I would trade away the Glock 17, but hey, it's all good. My first generation G17 is the only Glock that I would keep. Hell, it's the first and only Glock that I thought of whenever people mention Glock. I sometimes forgot that I also own the G20SF.
