my first Glock






#1
Hi all, so my CCW arrived today and I was on a local pawnshops site and they had this Glock 17 gen 2 at an I couldn't pass it up price!! bamm!! so much more easier to purchase with the CCW looking forward to taking it out to shoot, not yet though saving ammo right now. they only sell ammo to people that purchase guns I got their last box of 9mm too

Nice! Good choice. I have a gen 2 (as well as a gen 3) and love it. I know some people don't like the stippling/grip, but I don't mind it at all. Hope you get to go shoot it soon!

Also have to run my "new" Hipoint 995 I got right before this stuff kicked up and didn't want to burn my low supply of ammo.. that won't happen again....

I finished my polymer 80, G19 on Monday. I own a few polymer guns, my first almost Glock. All Gen 3 Glock upper and parts. I haven't shot it yet. It functions well.

I shot yesterday. It ran perfectly. Dang it, I almost pulled a muscle patting myself on the back, lol.

I do like the Gen 2 which does not have the rail. I wouldn't have a flashlight on a pistol or hang other crap on there so prefer the smooth front end. Not a fan of the stippling on the grips of the later ones either. I think they went to a dual recoil spring on later ones that is supposed to be much better, might be able to up grade your spring to that? Not a Glock expert, have had three, almost impossible to have one jam.

Gen4/5 recoil springs have a much wider diameter and can’t be put in a Gen1/2/3 slide or frame.

As for failures, I see them fail constantly. But the lions share of those failures are because of the shooter or ammo, not because of the gun. As with most polymer frame pistols we have come through the range.

I would have thought I would never put a light on a pistol, but then I started doing some low light / no light shooting with my middle son. House gun (cz p07 now has a light) , carry gun is getting both a light and an rds. ( as soon as holosun ships the 407k).
