Just bought my first handgun and i ended up picking the Glock 17...I just picked it up yesterday on the 17th how ironic is that lol....I was torn between the FNP 9, XD, M&P and Sig 229...But after all my research i went with the Glock 17...Reason i went with the Glock is because i felt if i bought any of the other guns i mentioned i still wanted a Glock in my collection...I didn't feel that way with the other guns...Also Glock just has so many accessories and parts for it...Maybe if the Sig 229R was the same price as the Glock i probably would of bought the Sig but for the Price of the Sig 229R is the same price as the Glock and a shotgun...Overall im very happy with my purchase...

Thanks to Peter from Mount Pleasant Arms! Peter was very professional and a very nice guy...I wouldn't hesitate to purchase my next gun or rifle from him...

You made the right decision. m&p wouldn't have been bad either, but you should have no regrets.

thanks bud!...I originally wanted the G19 but i went with the Glock 17 instead...Because it just felt better in my hands...Even though im a short guy with somewhat small hands the G17 was a perfect fit..it felt like a glove...

yeah m&p is a nice gun also...if i get one it probably would be the subcompact version...

A glock 17 is a really good choice. Easy to shoot, easy to mod, easy to clean, easy on the wallet, just does a lot of things well. Even after you get your limcat, you will still have room for a 17.

Congrats.

My first gun was a Glock when I was 22. The latest gun I bought was a subcompact G27. I might just get another before the election. A man can not have enough Glock's.

Reliable, affordable, attractive and easy to maintain.

I love my glock...I've put many rounds through it and am very happy with it. I have the 23 but will be adding a 19 into personal inventory for my wife. :43:

Nice choice. Glock's are the most reliable pistols I have ever owned.

A new Glock :shock:


From the sound of it you seem excited you can never sell it because you would be a traitor to your screen name.


All you need is the Vickers mag release and slide stop a Scherer butt plug :eek: some Trijicon HD sights and stipple the frame well that's what I would do.

I sold mine for a couple of reasons but it was always 100% reliable.

congrats on the 17.

i just picked up a well worn Generation 2 Model 19. it is quickly moving other guns from the range bag, nightstand and carry card. Old sights, holster worn finish and even as a 22 year old gun, shoot great. i love the grip without those finger grooves.

Congratulations, man! Great choice for a first handgun. Glock 17 is pretty much the gold standard for 9mm pistols now. My first handgun was a Sig 226 and I still feel that way about the Glock 17.
