    Do I stand alone?

    All of this stuff about RTF this... interchangeable backstraps that....Leave my Glock alone. Or give me the option to buy it "original recipe". I dont want Rough Texture, to wear a hole in my suits and dress shirts when I carry on duty. I dont want a new back strap...I like my little black polymer wonder just the way it has been for over twenty years. Quit mesing with things just because other companies are doing it, don't "keep up with the Jones" when you are already the lead dog in the pack. I like the 3rd Gen Glock...JUST THE WAY IT IS. Can I get an AMEN?!?!?!

    I like the 3rd Gen Glock also, but I think the RTF2 is the best grip I have ever felt on any handgun.

    No complaints with 3rd Gen Glock and have not tried the RTF to have an opinion.

    But I don't chase every new upgrade or gadget out there. I pick my firearms carefully for what is going to fit my needs and then tend to stick with it.

    I did spring for some XS Big Dot's on my XD9sc and have been really happy with them. I'd like them on a few other guns but I'm not running out to get every new trick or upgrade that comes down the pike.

    Too bad the M&P doesn't have a G19/23 size...they have a full size, like a G17/22 and a compact which is about where a G26/27 sits. I like the mid size.

    I think a lot of people are disappointed in the Gen4 as it doesn't really redesign the wheel as it were. Maybe expecting too much? I'm personally quite happy with my gen3 and if I were in the market for a new pistol I might consider a Gen4. I don't happen to like the texture on the frame but i suppose it's something one can get used to.

    I like my Glocks the way they are. I thought about getting another 19 Gen 3 in case they stop making them down the road- which I hope they don't.

    I approve.
    Glock "Perfection" is not just a slogan; it is truth in advertising.

    Well, allow me to be the voice of dissent.

    I'm quite happy with my 4th gen G17 so far, but I am waiting anxiously for the 4th gen G19. It's been eating everything I've fed it flawlessly so far (which has only been Federal 115 grain fmj, WWB 115 grain fmj, and Cor-Bon 115 grain +P jhp), but I would like something a tad smaller for ccw duty.

    Bought it used at a gunstore who had gotten it from a GI who was shipping out and couldn't bring it with him. I was looking for a 3rd gen G19, but just couldn't let myself pass up the deal on that almost brand new G17. I like the new rtf finish, the adjustable backstraps, and the new larger mag release.

    But to each their own, I suppose.

    I'm kinda in the middle on this one. I like the 3rd Gens just fine but most of the 4th Gen changes aren't bad. They are still very much a Glock and I'm happy they didn't change them too much.
