I have come over to the dark side. I jsut bought a G17 to have ammo and mag compatibility wiht my Oly AR15 in 9mm. Ihave always carried Sigs and 1911s. The Glock is interesting. I put 100 rounds through it right out of the box without a FTF or any other problems. It seems to be going a little high and to the left, no matter how I shoot it, so I am blaming the sights. A buddy is Glock armorer and ought to have the sight adjustment tool. I'm very pleased. For now, this will be my bedside gun. With a few hundred more rounds downrange and the sights adjusted, it will phase into being my daily carry gun.
