Thats actually "old news", and was the main reason I hated my gen1/2 19's. Up until the Gen 3's, that cut out was standard on the 19's.I'm not sure you and I are discussing the same thing. I'm talking about this cutout that ruins what was perfection...
Glock should've left this alone.
I also have the Larry Vickers Glock 17 and also a Vickers Glock 19. The Wilson Combat sights sealed the deal for me. Also I really like the extended magazine release and the slide stop. On the Glock 19 the Vickers grip plug made the grip feel better. In fact when I bought my Gen 5 G19 I bought his grip plug for it also.I've always been a 1911 guy. Still am. I think you can like more than one platform. I have, however, now entered the Glock world...
After lots of research, I just got my first Glock. I picked up a Larry Vickers Glock 17 in excellent condition last month. This edition comes with some well thought out mods, and I do have respect for Larry, and what he has done in his career. Love the U shaped rear sight, the rough textured frame. The slide release is way better than factory Glock one.
Both the 17 & the 2.0 fit my hand fine; the 2.0 out of the box points better for me. Anyway, I will rarely carry either one, the plan is to have one for the nightstand rather than keeping a 1911/.357 on hand, and for the higher capacity & the ability to mount lights. I should buy both just to cover all bets.I'd go Glock 19 over Glock 17 if you plan to carry it.
I was never all that impressed by S&W's M&P offerings. Haven't tried the 2.0 though.
With Glock - you learn to shoot it. Unless you have midget fingers / hands the 17/22/19/23/26/27 grip frame should fit you or as you get more comfortable you mod the grip to fit yourself.
Yes, you were. Of course, it does have the potential of stopping many 2 and 4 legged threats and perhaps even some motorized ones as well.Was I crazy to get a Glock 40? This thing is a monster in size.
Depends what you got it for.Was I crazy to get a Glock 40? This thing is a monster in size.
Cons (but doesn't mean I'm not still happy with the gun)
-The upper slide is GOLD, yes GOLD! It is not at all or in any way FDE like the lower so I am going to have it Cerakoted black.
