New guy here, and since I need to get the first one under my belt, here goes. My first Glock was a G17 back in 1986, Ser # AL7xxUS. Since that time, I have owned every single Glock, except the G7 & G18 (and of course, G25, G28). But I have found I always go back to a G17. It just seems to have some type of hold on my soul, so, I have decided to just go with the flow and am only going to buy G17's going forward. And I might add, they will not be the new Gen4 models. Not impressed with changes and on the 3 or 4 I have looked at, the recoil spring seems very heavy and the trigger feels like a cross between a 8# & a NY1...Neither are my cup of tea. But then again, I thought the Gen2 was not necessary either.
