Best all around 9mm Glock makes and why?
I am considering the 34 but I think it may be a little too long. And then I want the 19 on a trade for my 22. Reason why I want the 19 is to conceal, but is it a better range gun then the 17? I dont no. You tellme what you think.

or should I go C and then get a standard barrel at night to drop it in for self defense?

19... best balance of concealability, ammo capacity, and accuracy.

G19 is the best compromise, although compromise isn't the right word. I have a full set of the 9MM Glocks and they all have their good traits. The 19 is mid-sized yet still big enough to get a good grip on. I love my 26 but it's a little too compact. The 17 is great for range work but it's not the easiest to conceal in warm weather.

G19

can CCW in a pinch, be carried openly/duty, provides enough bbl for 9mm efficiency, has everything that the bigger brothers have minus the extra size, can use the G19, G17, and G18 mags

Glock 19.

The 19 is a great al around gun for the right person with the right hands. If you could only ow n one for CCW and plinking, the 19 is where its at. I have large hands and the fullsize frame for me is the best, but my 17 is for range duty only as my 23 is my carry weapon. I really want a 17L for range shooting, but it will have to wait as there are many firearms on my want list at the moment.

WHAT! NO G17L!





Dang, how'd that G19 get in the photo?

The G19 is THE Glock.

Best ALL AROUND Glock?

G19.
Link Posted: 3/12/2006 9:47:53 PM EDT
I have no problems shooting a 498 w/ 38 X's in GSSF matches with my 19. (Still the 500 eludes me dammit). Out of the box gun except for sights and a steel guide rod. No trigger work whatsoever.

In my opinion the G19 is the best all around Glock. That said, you will need to one of each
Link Posted: 3/13/2006 10:26:06 AM EDT
What everyone else said - the 19.
Link Posted: 3/13/2006 11:36:53 AM EDT
They're all Glocks and all in 9mm. What's the difference? (J/K)

Actually I find the 19 fits me the best of the three specified but then I have small hands.
Link Posted: 3/13/2006 8:01:29 PM EDT
19 is the best of them all, but 17 can be made to fire under water.

Link Posted: 3/13/2006 8:49:52 PM EDT
I'm forced to say the G19 is the best all around Glock, but that’s only because it does everything so well in a relatively small & handy package. My real "Favorite" is the G34, but I have to give the G19 the nod by a hair based on it’s performance in a smaller package.
Link Posted: 3/15/2006 1:22:40 PM EDT
G19 is the best for all around use.
Link Posted: 3/15/2006 1:58:20 PM EDT
Hands down, the 19.

The Glock 17 fits my hand perfectly.

The Glock 19 is better suited for women and guys with small hands, and if you want an easier to conceal pistol.

My favorite? The Glock 17. It's the semi-auto version of the Glock 18, and the Glock 17 was the first Glock

Same here. The G17 fits perfectly in my hand.
The G19 is more suited for women, or men with small hands.

No body like the G26? Did not even make the poll.
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 3:36:10 AM EDT
G18 of course!!!

2nd. Best G19
Link Posted: 3/16/2006 7:42:25 PM EDT
I agree with the G26. I don't have a G19 but do have a G23 same size as a 19. The G26 with +2 extension fits my hands and out shoots my G23.
Link Posted: 3/17/2006 4:18:17 AM EDT
I guess it really depends on your hand size and personal preference.

I like a full grip. With the 19, it's a tight fit for me to get all three of my fingers on the frame comfortably. So for all around shooting, I prefer the 17 but I use the 19 for a CCW.

This is truly one of those times where you really want both!

To be in the catagory of best all around I think it needs to be concealable. The only one of the three mentioned that is concealable without sacrificing too much barrel length or magazine capacity is the G19. I have both a G17 and a G19.

I have a 19, 17, and 34. I like the 34 the LEAST.

The 19 was my favorite for years. Still my carry and car gun.

But I have found when shooting steel plates, my follow-up shots are faster with the 17. The 17 holds two more rounds, and the grip on the 17 sticks out more, which makes holster draws a little easier.

For all-around use.... 19. For any kind of competition, I grab the 17.

Why is the G34 for your least favorite? Details man, details

I factor in concealability when ranking a handgun. One of the handgun greatest advantage is that it's concealable. If concealability weren't an issue we'd all be toting long arms.

In this poll, the G19 gets the nod for being concealable and able to handle range duty as well.

I thought it would be cool... with the 3lb trigger, and already comes with the extended slide stop and mag release, which as a lefty I typically install on mine.

Well, I find I like the heavier trigger better, and I dont find I am any more accurate with the 34 than the 19. I dont find my followup shots are that much faster with the 34 than the 17. So I just never seem to reach for it.

Maybe I will take it to my next 3-gun match and try it out again... but it just seems to sit in my safe, and I take the 17 more times than not.

I also like the idea of practicing with what I would carry... and so IDPA I use my G19, and everything else I use the 17. Nothing really "wrong" with the 34 other than its length.
