I took my new G17 out to the range today and ran some drills and scenarios with my shooting partner/co-worker (who also uses a G17). 250 rounds of Remington UMC without a single hiccup of any type. Ok, ok .... the slide release DID let go on it's own occasionally when I inserted a fresh mag during emergency reloads, but hey, all my Glocks have done that - and I kinda like it anyway! I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but I just LOVE this weapon! Super accurate, controllable, high capacity, and cheap to shoot. It just doesn't get much better ......... thought I'd share.
