I've got a Glock 22, but lately have been considering getting it a brother to keep it company. I'm wanting to get a 9MM, but debating as to which model. Any pros or cons on either?
I'm new to shooting Glocks and would like to shoot some matches. What is the diff between the G17 and G19?
G17 is a full size Glock... actually it's the same size as your 22... G19 is a "Compact" Glock... a litttle shorter barrel... a little shorter in the grip... a little less distance between the sights... and the 19 has a ribbed trigger!

I have both a 17 and a 19... I like them both, but the 17 is my favorite... The 17 should be a better match gun, but a lot of people prefer their 19... You can't go wrong with either one!

At present I shoot an XD9 and like it. Tried a G34 and it was lighter than the xd9 bet the G19 is like a feather.

What are the barrel lengths vs sight radis?

There's a link to the Glock pistol site. Click the "Models" menu item and then click the image of the pistol you're interested in... then click the "Technical Data" tab on the following page. It will have all the measurements for each Glock pistol...

I agree with JB... But then that's the only Glock I've ever shot.... But I do like it much better than my Sig P226!

So what about Generation and the rtg?
That's good info Looks like the G19 would be close to the XD9 size/barrel length.

To me, the 17 felt much better in my hand than the 19. The 19 is a bit smaller, but a grip extension on the bottom of the mag cures that. The barrel is a bit shorter on the 19 also, so figure a tad larger grouping. The 17 also comes with a 17 round mag(10 in CA). If you are going to conceal carry, for sure get the 19, but if no conceal carry, I would get the 17 unless you have small hands. Just my opinion...

You already have the 22. I am guessing that you like it. The G17 is the same size only in 9mm. That is what I would go with and that is my professional opinion.

I don't think you can go wrong with either the G17 or G19. As most of the folks above have said, it really depends on your personal feel for the guns. I have a G19 and love it.

clp,

if I am able to make it to the November match, I will bring my 17 and 19 for you to handle. All of my Glocks are Gen 3 pistols.
There you go. A very nice offer. Enter two classes and shoot both if you can.

Currently, I'm leaning towards te G19 mainly because I want to use it as CCW. I'm looking for a used one right now, but without luck. Does anyone know where I can get one in the Greensboro, NC area?
