    I bought my first gun last week. I picked up a used Glock 17 from my local cabelas. It came with three magazines, and a rail mounted laser sight. I need to figure out a battery for the laser and make sure it even works. I also wanted to upgrade the magazines. They are only ten round and I wanted to get the 17 rounders. I was also thinking of getting a mag well too.

    Congrats on the G17.

    I would get new mags immediately. The 17 makes no sense with 10 rounders.

    Congrats!


    I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six

    The G17 is a keeper, which I'm sure you will agree. Continue collecting 17 round mags, until you have at least 10 in your possession!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You'll be glad you did!:wavey:
