As a functional matter, what is the advantage of the full size frame other than for folks with larger hands?

That's all. People with bigger hands will be able to get more support hand purchase on a 45 than a 19.

I carry a G45.

For LE work, the G45's slide is shorter than a G17, so, depending on the holster, it's easier to sit in a patrol car for hours.

Something that a lot of people overlook as important in a handgun...balance.  It just balances so well.  I am a G19 homer but the 45 is the better shooter to me.

It balances well.  I thought it was a dumb idea at first, but once I tried it, it made sense.

After 20 years with a 19(gen 2), I got my dept. to swap me into a 17(gen3).  The 19 grip was 1/8" or 1/4" too short.  It carried great and, in many ways, I prefer it over the 17, but the 17 shoots a lot more natural for me.  I would bet the new 19 with the mag swell would fit well too, but the gen 2 with the cut out was too aggravating.

The other part is nostalgia. A 19.3 was my first handgun purchase and my EDC for well over a decade. I’ve debated getting it milled to bring it into the modern era but want to leave it as is.

The Gen 3 slide finish is my favorite of all the generations

Since everyone is taking g45s now, don’t know how true this is but looks like there may be a few Gucci g45s down range

@Combat_Diver

Have you seen broken barrel lugs on Glocks or have you seen failures to feed with 124 gr or 147 gr ammo? Someone says they've seen it with military issue Glocks, but I've never heard of it.

The compact series is just small enough that I end up pinching my palm between the magwell and the magazine when swapping magazines fast. I’ve had blood blisters there from the pinch. I know, I put in for a John Kerry grade Purple Heart…

Since then I’ve added magwell funnels to my compacts to prevent this from happening along with Vickers baseplates. With the mag funnel I prefer the grip over the full size.

G19s are forever out for me; I can only get about a 1/3rd of my pinky on it, regardless of generation, and even an aggressive undercut gives me only about 1/2 to 2/3 purchase.

Various magwells only scrunch up my grip, and if I’m compromising the grip that much a g26 with a mag extension handles about the same and conceals easier so for me it’s 17(or 45 or similar full grip)/26 combo.

If I could only have one gun I’d be ok with the 19, but since I can have more then one, the full size wields better and the sub compact conceals better

Yet many people shoot the 26 better than any other Glock. My 26 is a tack driver it defies logic.

Is anyone familiar with the "Rolex guy" ,  there's several photos of SF dudes with Geissele mk.14 rails a great glock with a dot, suppresor height iron in front of dot, vertically grooved slide, and a tango down grip plug. Looks like maybe a brownells slide?

Got a couple of the belt slide holsters previously mentioned in the thread.

@Combat_Diver was great for offering these. Really good quality build and materials, and it does what it is supposed to do. The black and tan holsters are from him. He included a printout/educational flyer with them. I got these because I usually wear either a black or tan belt, and I wanted these holsters a very low pro/minimalist holster, and thanks to his postings here I found that these were built for exactly that. I also like that I can use multiple pistols with this and if I need to secure my pistol somewhere I can just flatten these out and they will likely not even be noticed.
They work well with the 19X with the X300, a 45 with an XC-1, a slick 19 & 17, 1911, and Hi Power. With the bigger X300 and suppressor sights, it isn't going to win any speed draw competitions but it works. Haven't tried with a 43 yet, but I'm pretty sure it will be ok.

I also picked up one of the D Rmor versions.

I've had the two Crye Gun Clips for something like 15 years or so, right after they came out. They were sent to me, and I don't ever really use them for what they were intended for, and the tan one was never even taken out of the box until about two weeks ago. They're ok I guess if you needed something like this, but honestly for a holster I like the belt slides better. I just don't fully trust the retention relying completely on that LTD snap. If I did have to use it, I would certainly have a lanyard.

Thanks to all the contributions and people keeping the info and pics coming on the thread. I've learned a lot with this one. Even re-worked my Glock tool kit.

@kenderloin here is the pic of the info sheet. Pretty basic info, but it does show the alternate use of the retainer over the grip as opposed to over the rear of the slide/beavertail.

The g45 mos3 is rumored to also be in CAGs inventory, so I'm setting mine up similarly to how we see the 17 mos3's being used.

No lol. In theory the 19 should be perfect. But the location of the hump is higher than the flatter strap on a 17
