I just purchased this gun last week, havent even fired any rounds through it, but I am thinking I would like a longer barreled gun as my 1st handgun, and also duty weapon for being and armed security officer...

looking for a great condition 17, or 34.

Here in FL, you cant, as a security officer, use on duty anything "bigger" than the police do, so nothing bigger than a 9mm basically.

I can take pics if needed, but like i said the gun has never been fired, minus the 2 rounds by "Betty Wilson" @ Glock in February.

Huh? Brevard County Sheriff uses .40 S&W and Melbourne Police Department uses .45 GAP Cocoa Police department lets you carry just about any handgun you want as long as your part of the swat team.

I'll try and find the legislature on it, but when I took my class, they kept stressing, that if you were on duty with anything bigger than a 9 or .38 that you would lose your job, license and possibly face charges. Multiple times they stressed that.

Thank you...here's from the application instructions for the G license...

I forgot about the .38 ammo in the .357 revolver. I was trying to point out that it has nothing to do with what the police carry. I have not heard of anyone who was "approved by the Department" to carry anything else.

The original reason for this was due to what the police carry, that is what was expressed to me.

Most leo's, at least the one's in orlando are issued 9mm handguns from the dept.

What are you asking for it?
Paid just under $600 OTD w/ taxes and BG check.

Wouldn't want to take much less than that, but really only looking for a newer 17/17L or 34.

Just want a longer barrel to start off with, if i cant find a good trade, ill keep it no problems.


Or ill take $600 cash if someone doesn't want to "wait" for a gun shop lol jk

I'd just keep it. The G19 being perfect in size,would be good for duty and for off duty CCW. The 17 would be harder to conceal,possible,but harder. Just my opinion...Bump for a great gun!

Thanks, and I agree, it would be good for multipurpose, but in the fall i am planning on picking up a G36 or G39 and also a pocket pistol...

once SU basketball season starts, and I can start to sell my Front Row tickets...i'll be golden, each game should get me a new gun :)
