    ...just sold my Gen 3 G17 and will pick-up a new Blue Label Gen 4 G17. My new Gen 4 G19 and G23 have been awesome.

    Same here man, my Gen 4 19 is running like a top in IDPA, and the Gen 4 21 is so soft shooting and accurate. And both are (FDE) :super grin:

    I loe the larger mag release, size of the grips with no extra panels, and the texturing is just right, not too rough to bother on CCW, but enough to keep the pistol in place even when outdoors and sweaty.

    Agree and I didn't think about the 21, there is a Gen 4 G21 there, Blue Label. I need to hold it to see how it feels. I had a Gen 2 G21 for 18 years, just flawless.

    The G21 has always been one of my favorites, if it wasn't so damn hot here I would carry it more often. Soon as my LW barrel gets here it will start getting more of a workout :supergrin:

    $840 a month good buddy, well, for another 8 months until I retire :supergrin: But I sold the Gen 3 for $475, enough to cover the Gen 4 :embarassed:

    Sounds like fun. I love my gen 4. Must be nice to get money for an extra Glock every 2 weeks.

    That's why I always wanted to fly, being a soldier or grunt is a tough life that I respect but wasn't for me :embarassed:

    That would be nice but between a wife, teenage daughter and life, I have to trade and/or sell to get a new gun. Believe me, I would love to have a larger gun collection!!!

    I'm also loving the Gen4

    I consider myself lucky that I didn't get a lemon though....

    I ordered my Gen 4 17 on the 24th. I'm rather impatient waiting for it to arrive!

    I have bought a Gen4 G17 and found it excellent, shoot it regularly in IDPA without any issue and I think the grips texture is the best I have yet seen, including much more expensive pistols. Does it need some tweaking, different connector, etc.? Yes but so did the earlier versions.

    Waiting to find the elusive G34, do they even make them?

    Not a great pic but finally got it, along with my other Gen 4's. I will say there are actually 4 guns there as my G23 has a .357 Sig barrel in it right now :supergrin:
