For the most part I no longer carry Glock. Having said that, if I were to carry one of my Glocks it would be the G45. I use to carry a (Gen 2) Glock 17 off duty and did so for years. In fact, it was my first Glock. And I carried it daily without issue in a Desantis OWB leather holster. I have a no-name leather OWB holster for the G45 for when/if I get the itch to carry it. It has a 30 degree forward (FBI) cant which nicely takes care of the butt of the pistol sticking out and printing through a T-shirt.

Dang I keep going back and forth between a G17 Gen 5 and G45. Crazy… but I’ve yet to pick up a 17. So if neither I poses (yes I know I’ll end up with both at some point), which to get?? I would CCW it for sure. Ya know, have it to have it. It would be another multi-use weapon.
Either would make a fine choice. As Warbow stated, they are really almost the same pistol and would fulfill the same role equally. At practical to long distance shooting you are likely to see little, if any difference in accuracy. Personally I have always liked the G17 but I’m very happy/satisfied with the G45 and it’s pretty much become my favorite Glock.

No wrong choice.

Dave I’ve always trusted your advice and respected your comments. Thank you. A G45 will probably be in my soon future. I did hold one and dry fire it a month or so ago. It seemed very well balanced.
I agree that it is a well balance pistol. One of the things I eventually like about the 19X after holding/shooting one. Just seems to point a little more naturally (for me) than the G17. That isn't to say the G17 didn't point very well, but the overall balance of the G45 (for me) just seems even better.

As a side note, I'd love for Glock to develop a 23X or whatever model number they'd assign to a 40S&W caliber the same size as the G45/19X. I did a poll here a while back if folks would be interested and IIRC it was a very positive response.
