I'd love to have 1/2 dozen G19.

1) dedicated daily driver
2) dedicated weekend 4x4
3) dedicated nigh-stand
4) dedicated west-wing of house
5) dedicated daily carry
6) floater

I'd buy a 2nd gen 19.



But if you don't have one, get a 17, best Glock ever.

Then I have a G26, G17L, and a couple of G34s, plus three G21s just because.

You could say I am a fan.

Oddly enough I sold my 34 to get a 17.

Shot both heavily side by side for a day and....had better time and hits with the 17.

I too found it strange.

Still love a 34, but I really love my 17

Proud original owner of a Gen 2 19, came with 2x 10 rounder mags :-(.  Liked the 19 so much, I recently purchased a Gen 3 19.  Super pieces.  Can't go wrong.  Magazines are no longer an issue :-)
Link Posted: 9/4/2013 6:15:18 PM EDT
I intended to but have been waffling between a G19 and a G17. Now I should spend the money on my wife's birthday present.

The moral of the story: get both. Now.
Link Posted: 9/4/2013 6:32:39 PM EDT
I have three Gen 3 Glock 19's and all three play different roles.  I have one designated for CCW, one for home defense with a threaded barrel and supressor, and one for SHTF gear loadout.  Anyone of these can be used for home defense.  These are the only Glocks/pistols I own but I don't see myself with a different pistol or caliber.  

I've also owned other pistols but sold them all and came down with the Gen 3 Glock 19.
Link Posted: 9/4/2013 6:41:27 PM EDT
I want a 2nd one, maybe in fde if I can get one at a good price.

I feel like I should maybe get a 23 too, so I can shoot .40 and 9 with a conversion barrel.

Also I want a 17, and a 21, and a 26, and a 30.  Well fuck

Since my philosophy is to have 10 mags for each pistol, I tend to go down in pistol class.  19 mags fit a 26, 21 mags fit a 30 and so forth...since I have 2 Glock 19's, my next will be a 26.  The downside is finding 26 mags, but my 19's will work as an emergency back up.  I would like to have a 17 but do not want to start collecting a new set of mags.

In addition with today's ammo craze, I am not taking on new ammo classes...but then again, I have all three pistol caliber s are covered, would like new rifle caliber but that is not happening...if I do, it will be .243 or .270, as these are the caliber s that all of the stores seem to have on the shelf.

No the 19 is better.  Every bit as capable as the 17 but much easier to carry.

I have several.

Link Posted: 9/5/2013 5:41:53 AM EDT
I'm planning on buying a second G19 this year for a girl I'm dating. I never much liked the 19, but girls sure seem to like it.

I love the 17.
Link Posted: 9/5/2013 6:05:36 AM EDT
If I got a good deal, sure.   I never liked the 3rd gen compact sized frame, though, so if nothing else, I'd sell it and get another 4th gen
Link Posted: 9/5/2013 6:07:55 AM EDT
i say yes!  The G19 is my EDC so I  currently have three Gen3  G19's and I am planning to purchase a Gen2 as well...

i personally would. i dont dont have G19s, but i do have 3 glocks of the same model, and plan on getting 2 more as time passes.

if its your main workhorst and go-to pistol, then definitely get enough... "until you have enough".
Link Posted: 9/5/2013 12:02:05 PM EDT
I currently have 21 Glocks, but only 1 19.  I really "need" a spare, though I have a few 23s and a 26 that can backfill if necessary.
Link Posted: 9/5/2013 12:28:50 PM EDT
I have 2 19s 2 17s 34 and 17L.  I shoot the 19a the most.  But the 17s are my favorites.

Get a 17 or 34.
Link Posted: 9/5/2013 3:37:49 PM EDT
Agree on 17 or 34, then if you still want a second 19 grab it later.
Link Posted: 9/6/2013 11:02:38 AM EDT
I carry a 19. When my wife decided to learn out of all the guns she tested, she preferred the 19. We bought 19 #2. My 14 year old son loves the 19 so 19 #3 is a foregone conclusion.

Link Posted: 9/6/2013 2:46:03 PM EDT
I carry a Gen4 19. Love it. It fits me perfect personally and I trust my/my family's life with it day to day.  Got a good deal on a HK USP40c. As hard as I tried I just couldnt love it. So I traded it for another LNIB Gen4 G19. Ended up trading that for a NIB Gen3 G17. Since I had thousands of rounds on my carry gun I wanted to distribute the workload to another gun for practice. While I like the 17, the Gen4 19 will always be my favorite go-to pistol. For me, it just plain works.
Link Posted: 9/6/2013 4:39:50 PM EDT
If that's your preference I'd say yes. I prefer the G17 and currently have 4 of them and my next one will be a G17 gen4 FDE.

What can a model 34 do better than a 19 or a 17

Longer sight radius is the only advantage that I can see.
Link Posted: 9/7/2013 10:58:08 AM EDT
Hell OP, if you want another 19, get one. Perhaps make one your dedicated nightstand/truck gun and the other your dedicated EDC.

It's just a personal preference, but I can't bring myself to buy two of the same thing. Why spend the money on something I already have, when I can put the money towards something else and have a little variety. So, if it were me, I'd probably go the route of a 17 or 34. Or, if you like the size, get a 23 in 40SW or a 32 in .357Sig. G30's are also similar in size to the 19. Everyone needs at least one .45 in their collection. Plus, most 19 holsters will fit a 19.

Or just do what I'd do and get a G20 or G29  in 10mm.

(Any/all of which can be address on other models by aftermarket accessories/work, of course, if you want to go that route.)

I shoot the 34 noticeably better than the 17, personally, but others in this thread report the opposite so YMMV.  

IMHO, you owe it to yourself to try them both in your hands, side by side if possible.

This.

And not just a box of ammo per gun.

250-500 rounds per gun.

Truly a tough question. Glocks are so reliable that you can get by just fine without a spare of your primary carry gun, but It's so nice having a selection of Glocks that there is no need to rationalize getting another one.

How about getting one and tricking it out?
Link Posted: 9/9/2013 5:44:36 PM EDT
Yes...two G19s here...only pistol that I have an exact duplicate
