I'm excited about my new purchase. The gun store I go to had Glock17 and 19 (police trades) for $359.00. I went and looked at four of them and narrowed it down to two. Both had good triggers. ONe was a First Generation 17, the other one, a Second Generation. I took them apart and looked at them with the gun salesman, (who I've dealt with before and trust). I just loved the First Generation G17. I like the smoothe grip. The barrel was somewhat worn in the SEcond generation one, although not badly. The first generation gun was great. The trigger is great and the man said it was hardly shot. There hasn't been many round through it. I just love this smoothe grip and trigger. I guess this could have gone in General Glocking, but I do intend to use it Saturday at an Indoor match. Anyone else have a good first generation G17 and uses it in competition? HOnestly, I really like the smoothe grip on it, without the grooves and checkered pattern.
