    My local GS has a crap ton of brand new Blue Label Gen 4 Glock 17s. I have a Glock 19C, a Sig Sauer SP2022, and a Sig P250 Subcompact; should I go ahead and get a Gen 4 Glock 17? I like them, but don't know how to justify it. Convince me to get one! :rofl:

    Heres some convincing for ya....get the glock to round out your options...two glocks and e sigs....you can use the mags from the 17 in both your glocks....parts and accesories are easier to find and cheaper than tthe sig..all of the guns you mention are great guns, why not buy them all?

    Easy, what if SHTF and you have 3 family or friends who need to fight next to you?

    You'll need 4 guns and the fact that they all eat 9mm is always welcome since ammo commonality is a good thing. At least the 2 Glocks can share mags. The Sig guys will have to hope there are extra boxes of ammo.

    If you need justification for buying the G17...get rid of the P250. IMO, the P250 is not one of Sigs better accomplishments.

    They got the bugs worked out with the P250 Subcompact. Mine has a born-on date of 12/26/09 and works perfectly. I love it. As for the justification of buying a Gen 4 G17, I want one but don't need one. That's why I'm debating on whether or not to do it.

    If you do not yet own a G17 then the answer is yes.

    Get the new Gen. 4 G17 it's going to be my next purchase. I just bought a Gen.4 G22 from a member on here and I love it, I have big hands and love the way it feels in my hand without any added backstrap I may get a Gen.4 G19 also. They have taken my attention away from my G21sf

    Are you saying you need the current three?

    Or looking at it another way ....

    O reason not the need! Our basest beggars
    Are in the poorest thing superfluous.
    Allow not nature more than nature needs,
    Man's life is as cheap as beast's. Thou art a lady:
    If only to go warm were gorgeous,
    Why, nature needs not what thou gorgeous wear'st,
    Which scarcely keeps thee warm. But, for true need--
    You heavens, give me that patience, patience I need.

    - Shakespeare, King Lear

    If you're asking to be convinced to buy one, sounds like you really want it.

    So just buy the damn thing : )

    and we better get pics.
