After a bit of a struggle getting my Gen 4 G19 I could not be happier with my purchase. This left my like-new G17 sitting alone, getting absolutely zero attention. Like others have said, I feel like the G19 is the perfect gun (for me). I figured I would post my G17 for sale on the local forum to see if I could recoup some of my money. I had one cash offer ($450, which is a fair price in my area) and one trade offer (G33, manufactured in 2006). The G33 is Glock's subcompact chambered in .357 Sig. I have read a lot about the round so I was familiar with its attributes (from ballistics to uses, to comparisons with .40 S&W, to cost). The G33 was in excellent condition, looking as if it had hardly been fired (probably due to the cost of use). The deal was sweetened by the tune of 4 OEM magazines with pierce extensions and 700 rounds of .357 Sig (600 fmj and 100 jhp self defense) at the cost of 20 cents per round. I figured, what the hell, and took the deal. Took her out this morning and I am absolutely in love with the gun and the round. It did not have near the amount of "bite" or "pop" I was expecting after reading reviews online. In fact, it felt much better to shoot than a friend's XD 40 full size I have fired on multiple occasions. Perhaps, this is the higher bore-axis on the XD at play (I don't know ) I do not intend to start some caliber war or gun war; however, in my hands, the G33 was much more pleasant to fire than the XD40. While the G19 will remain my favorite, the G33 offers a more powerful and smaller package that is VERY fun to shoot.
