    I'm curious what the majority would choose if you are going to buy one within a week. Based on everything you've heard, experienced and read, which gen are you going to choose, for right now. Thanks

    gen4 reliable and the improvements make it worth it but you really can't go wrong either way.

    I bought 2 G19 gen4 my first ever glock purchases..the others did not have near the feeling when i had a choice of a gen3 or ge4...both are great which ever feels best..i am a CZ person so when Glock made a grip i liked plus other features i like gen4 for me...Glocks are all good just what feels good believe me you'll know when you handle them side by side its a bigger difference in feel than i would have thought

    Gen4 for sure. Im actually waiting for one right now. I like the 3's because i stipple the grips on them, but i like the upgrades on the 4's

    I wanted to add a poll to this just to keep track of the votes, but when I click on thread tools it doesn't give the option. Can anyone help? I just need to add Gen 3 or Gen 4 to the poll, thanks.

    Either is going to be good. The Gen3 guns are well-proven with legendary reliability. The vast majority of Gen4 owners seem to consider their guns to be excellent shooters and perfectly reliable, and the upgrades are appealing. Plus, Gen4 is where Glock is going, of course...so, IMO, you might as well buy your ticket and take the ride.

    Just got a gen 3 17 two days ago. Was actually looking for a gen 4 but I got a barely used (shot twice) 17 for $250.00 so I couldn't pass on the deal.

    Gen 2 or 3. Do not like the texture of the grips or the problems I am hearing of the Gen 4s
