    I was carrying a Glock 31C for years concealed, now I am carrying the 45 more...I don't have any smaller Glocks, they are too short for my hands.

    But, but... it’s an advanced design!

    The 45 is my off duty carry, 17 is department issued. I prefer my 45 largely due to the lack of finger grooves. I shoot them equally well accuracy wise. Personally I only notice a slight, basically negligible difference in the 45's favor as far as recoil, sight radius and follow up shots are concerned. I just finished sanding a small undercut on my 45. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I might actually shoot the gun on a real range at real targets to see what the actual difference is....can't say I 100% trust their computers ability to judge accuracy.

    Comparing Gen 4 G17 to Gen 5 G45 is apples to oranges. Compare both in Gen 5.

    I have learned (from spending WAY too much $ on switching back and forth on this gun or that gun) that which ever gun you feel confident with, STICK with that gun, regardless of manufacture or model it is. They say beware of the man of one gun. This could not be a truer statement as I have seen this over the years in my life and profession.

    If you shoot better with your 17, then you will feel confident with that platform should the need ever arise that you have to use it, which I hope is NEVER sir! Good luck on your never ending endeavor to find the perfect gun but it sounds like you already have it, so stick with it in my opinion. Just buy a couple more for backups...:dancing:

    People need to stop saying this. ;)

    My experience has been just the opposite of yours, and from what Ive seen, those who do only have one gun, generally cant shoot for ****.

    I can only compare what I have in front of me.

    Yup, it's just internet yada yada. Everyone who is a real competition shooter has lots of guns, because at the onset you need a duplicate for everything you bring to a match.

    A more accurate statement would be “beware the gun owner who trains”.
