At the moment the glock part of our stable only has one 9mm, my grand daughter’s G43. A 19 or 17 gen3 is next up, and I’m not really particular which as all Glocks shoot just as well as they should in my hands. Looking for a used one, so whichever comes along first is fine.
My hubby prefers the .40s, and I usually shoot the .45s but having a 9mm to train with is cheaper.
The gen3 grips, particularly the double stacks, fit my hands perfectly and I find the grip angle naturally ideal. No issues with any of the controls biting or being hard to use.
Nothing much about the gen 4 or 5 that I need, so staying with the gen 3 for the most part. My hubby’s had them going back to gen 1.
@James I like the blockiness it has an industrial feel that seems right… function driving form. An Engineer’s gun… everything it should have, no more, no less. Reliable, durable, economical, unfussy.
Down sides: replace the takedown lever with an extended one to make that easier to use. Upgrade the sights for night vision.
Optional: replace the recoil spring guide rod for steel or titanium, and cerakote to your personal taste So far, all mine are basic black, but my granddaughters is rose gold
