Over the last few days I was able to get hands on and shoot pretty much the majority of the 9x19 Glocks. After shooting them I decided on 2 . A 43x followed me home today and when the LGS gets a G17 Gen 5 MOS they'll let me know and I'll pick that one up as well. I have no plans to put any optic on it now but in the future who knows. I really liked the G17 more than I expected. I also liked the grip and compact size of the 43x as did my wife. So when she gave the nod I could grab 2 I did so before she could change my mind!! Hoping to get out and run a few hundred rounds through the new 43x over the weekend.
