Not Sure What to Purchase Next

3900 62
Over the last few years I've added a few Glocks to the family. All of my Glocks are Gen 4's with the exception of one. So far I have a 42, 43, two 26's, 27, 19, 23OD (unfired), 21, and a 17 Gen 5.

I want to use my last GSSF coupon next week before it expires and I'm thinking about a backup 19. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE:
This may seem odd, but I ended up purchasing a 17.4. I would like to eventually have all the Gen 4's and the price was right. This will give me a backup 17.4 to go with the 17.5. I plan to purchase a 19.5 in the future if I like the 17.5.

I have so much 9mm and .40 ammo that I wanted to avoid 10mm and .357 at this point, but those were very tempting. Certainly in the future if finances allow. Thanks for all the input.

19x or another 19. You can never have too many

You don't have to spend good money just because some coupon is going to expire.

My favorite is the 26, and you already have 2 of them. If I had your collection, I'd lean towards a 19X, 19.5, 34 or a 30/21 SF.

Having the guns you do opens up your options a lot. You can get something more "exotic" instead of going deep with another 9mm. I haven't shot the 10mm yet, but if you go camping or hunting, that would be a great choice. You could get a .40 conversion barrel then too, I think.

Since you already own two of the mostest greatest handguns in the world - the 26, you could sell ALL your other guns, buy a 26.5, and get all the 9mm ammo you'd ever need!!! AND, pick up that PCC Ruger rifle that takes Glock mags! Diversity is overrated. YES, I'm KIDDING!
Thanks for your suggestions. Very helpful. I hope to never sell another gun. I sure wish I had some of the shotguns that I traded off as a young boy who loved to hunt and trade guns.

Why not learn to be satisfied?
MeatGrinder, I am not dissatisfied and I'm thankful for the handguns that I have. I see them as a good investment, a fun hobby, and obviously essential for self defense. I've gone several years now without making a purchase, but I'm in a position to add another Glock to the collection. I have two sons and a new grandson--I hope to pass many of them along to them in the future.

G30SF Gen3 is my vote. Or maybe a 17L or one you can put an optic on?

Yep.
Cheap .40 rounds for the range, Underwood for carry (street, home, and woods).
You may find the other Glock’s relegated to other duties.

Does your new purchase have to be a Glock?

Here are some good options,

https://ruger.com/products/sp101/models.html

https://ruger.com/products/superRedhawkStandard/models.html

https://ruger.com/products/newModelBlackhawkConvertible/specSheets/0320.html

https://ruger.com/products/newModelBlackhawkConvertible/specSheets/0310.html

https://ruger.com/products/newModelBlackhawkConvertible/specSheets/0472.html

https://ruger.com/products/newModelBlackhawkConvertible/specSheets/0476.html

Most of these guns will shoot from 2'' to 4''
groups at 100 yards, have done it many times.

Maybe you could get some conversion barrels
for your existing Glocks, the G21 can be the most
powerful and versatile Glock, think 460 Rowland
or 45 super, with the extra barrels you can also
shoot 40, 10mm and others in the G21.
