    I've never really contemplated owning a G17... But I was checking out a Gen4 FDE 17 today... And now I kinda want it.

    I don't really like full size handguns... But the gen 4 felt much better to me than the gen 3's do.

    I currently own a gen 3 19 and a 27 (EXO).

    Thoughts?

    Talk me in... or out of owning a 17.

    They look like dewdew. They are so ugly, they actually make OD look acceptable.

    I love my 17. It's one of my favorite pistols, and I'd love to have one of the FDE variants.

    You won't regret it.

    I've seen that color somewhere before.









    Now I remember, it came out of the bottom of a baby.

    We didn't call it FDE, we called it poop.


    But a normal G17? You neeeed one.

    I get the G17 part but don't have any desire to own the FDE version. Maybe I'm missing something but the greens and browns look goofy. Just my opinion.

    It's a must buy. I was in the store looking for a G34, but I saw this gun and immediately bypassed the G34. I told the salesman to pack it up and get the paperwork ready before I even held it. My wife just sat there and rolled her eyes.....here we go again. LOL

    I don't really care for this shade of FDE (based on the pics), I'd just get black.

    Get it or buy a regular one and duracoat (paint) it.

    TSA, how long does the duracoat usually last before you need to re paint it?
