    I'd reconsider the part that I bolded. I know you have the BTDT credentials, but most semi-auto jams are magazine related, you may not need the extra rounds, but I would think an extra mag could bring a little extra piece of mind to you. IMHO.

    Did you say it was cool down there? We made it to 28 degrees here today.
    Yeah buddy it was 58 degrees this morning and only got up to 68 degrees in the aftenoon. My blood has thinned out since I left Maryland 32 years ago. LOL.

    Are you sure that was not a 60 shot group or at 5 yards instead of 50?

    Good luck with the G17 and like the many before you, I won't be surprised with the "well I thought I would carry the G17, but the G26 is just smaller and lighter thread" here in a few months. It's nice to have choices though.

    Good to see someone who is willing to try different things.

    Given your stated preferences, I was a bit surprised to read this. I think you are making a good choice.

    I would also suggest a spare mag, for malfunction clearance - just in case.

    Good luck with the holster search...

    I am! But when you get close to 357 mag ballistics, and have 18 of them ready to go, well, that got me to thinkin, Glock, plus 357-like ballistics, hummmm. I like the 9mm over the 357 sig for this because there is not much difference and the availability and price of the 9 is more feasable.

    I have always tried to be open minded. I have found its your best chance of stayin alive longer. I have always liked the 9mm.

    Glockman10mm - I think me was meaning the 147 versus the 124 in 9mm. I always figured you for just heavy calibers, but the multiple rounds in 9mm are nothing to sneeze at. Good call to get the gun now before the legislators go ape over one of their own being attacked yesterday. Not a certainty, but I figure it is likely.

    I have always been a heavy for caliber guy, especially for when the cartridge is lacking velocity. I like the 147 grain in the g26, but the 4.5 inch g17 tube allows 1310 fps for the 124 grain load, which makes up the difference. With that Brass Jacketed bullet, it should be a tough bullet with good penetrating qualities. Combine that with 357 mag like velocities, and I feel pretty good about it. I might go out and try to find an animal of sufficient size and weight to try it out on.

    Gman,
    I think you will be happy with your choice. Both of us being somewhat inclined to full size weapons, I don't think the weight or size will prove to be a problem for you. Something that I think that you will find, as did I, is the superior speed with which accurate shots can be delivered, without concern that the weapon is, or near, empty. While you are probably more skilled not to mention younger than myself, I found that not being a JM there is no way that I can deliver shots from a revolver with the speed that I can from my 92's. This supports my feelings that rapid, multiple shots (4-6, 4 minimuim) with reasonable accuracy, provide the greatest odds of a satisfactory solution to lethal problems.

    Gloves, I guess now you can see why I asked you about your EDC. The benefits of the full size service sidearm is something that has been eating away at me for a long time. It is something that just cannot be denied.

    Congrats I hope you are pleased with your choice. I myself have changed it up a little, always been a .45 guy. I just bought a new G30 and ordered a Gen 3 G19, I really liked the way the 19 felt. Good Luck.

    I carried a G22 for about 6 years. When you find the right holsters, it packs pretty easy. I've been toting the 19 for a while now and I think I carry it more than my 17 just because I'm used to it. That and I have a lot more holster options for the 19. Sounds like you've made a well thought out decision there.
