Congratulations. I think in the long run you will be glad it worked out lie this. As mentioned earlier, all you need is a conversion barrel to have a pistol in both calibers. Can't convert the G17 to .40 caliber. I ordered a .40 cal to 9mm conversion barrel for my Gen4 G22 a couple of weeks ago and am anxiously awaiting its arrival.
I married my wife for her looks. Just not the ones she gives me when I bring home a new gun.
Florida Glocker #112, S&W #112, Ruger #112a, Rimfire #112, SNS #112
