The 17 is perfect. Huge, proud, with too many rounds standard but a true perfect thing. My recently-acquired ex-DC cop Gen 1 17 is 25 years old and still shoots reliable and true. I guess polymer works, eh? Congrats. And run anything and everything through it as long as it has a jacket.
Love my Gen 3 G-17, I did some very minor contour changes, Added TruGlo TFO Trtium Fiber sights to it, got a Comptac MTac Minotaur holster, and it make a great EDC for me
even on bike rides, and nature walks.
Congrats and welcome aboard
