Good first gun choice because its so simple to operate. Dont like the take down. Not made for looks but gets the job done and combat accurate. Good HD and range gun if you like the caliber. Easy on the shooter and reliable.

I presently own a 34 and had a 17. When I purchased both, even being new, I field stripped them, cleaned them and with a micro drop oiler put just a scant micro drop right where the hand book says. I have put hundreds of rounds of anything including some of my shooting buddys hand loads ( which I know that Glock says no too ) and they are both like the Energizer Bunny...nothing fails to fire, jams or anything. Accuracy may suffer with different brands but that is to be expected, unless your a dreamer. Best bang for the buck, thanks to a heads up from Gundirectory member Izj22 is at Wal-Mart. Winchester 115 gr FMJ 100 rounds bulk for $12.88.

My 34 will better than put 10 shots into a 3 1/2 - 4 inch group off hand at 50 ft. The 17 was not so good but it does not have the trigger or the sights of the 34 etc. but I could still keep them all on the target. Being retired I spend 2-3 hours 3-4 days a week at my member range and frequently shooting with other members with various Glocks of what ever caliber. I have yet to see anyone have a jam!? Maybe those with jamming issues have too much oil/lube in the works? There is a web site report/video out there I think on Glockmiester where the guys using a special magazine puts 10,000 rounds through I think a 17. The gun is fireing full auto and it is there to be seen. Not a skip! Check out Glockmiester or Glock Talk. I now it is there just cant recall the sight? Elderkin

Remember with any of the C model GLOCK pistols or any ported pistol, the ports reduce operating pressure even by just enough to not cycle the slide all the way on occation. Instead of 115 gr rounds, step it up to a 124 gr. and see if that helps.

If changing ammo dosent solve the jamming problem in a ported pistol try dropping down to the next lightest availible spring

Glocks what can I say the most reliable pistol I have ever shot, I have shot a 17 noting speical about this one ither it;s just the plain old work horse, it has never malfunctions except due to operater issues such as my buddy putting his thumb up in the way of the slide and cutting it lol, but thats another story, I cant wait till I can aford a glock 21 I love the ideal of a 45 acp cartridge and 13+1

I have had my Glock 17 for about 8 years now. It came with two 17 round clips. Very good pistol. Light weight, rugged, and accurate. 9mms are reasonable and fun to shoot. If I could only have one 9mm .... it would be this one. Buy one for yourself!!

Hi, I'm in the market of buying a 9mm hand gun i'm looking at the Springfield XD or the Glock 17 the only problem i have with the Glock 17 is the extra safety feature not like the XD that comes with the extra safety feature at back of the hand grip. but i'm getting alot of feed back on Glock 17 about accuracy.
