Glock 17 Gen4 – Finally!

Glock 17 Gen4

So, I needed a new handgun for our upcoming holster testing projects. After some internal debate, I finally decided on a Glock 17 Gen4.

I know, I know… to many of you, the G17 is old news. But, until fairly recently, I haven’t had a lot of trigger time with Glock pistols. That changed when I purchased a G42 and G43 last year. And after getting to know those two pistols, I’ve started to feel some “Glock Fan-Boy” feelings. And those feelings are apparently strong enough to convince me to FINALLY get my first Glock 17. Now it is time to accessorize! Stay tuned…
