New gen 3 G17 for IDPA

Had been using my G27 with a 9mm barrel, for IDPA practice, which was not working out so well: it put me in ESP requiring a higher score and I was not hitting COM @ 20 yards with the short sight radius, so I broke down and ordered a G17.

LGS said they could only get gen 3 with NY legal mags last week. No problem - I like the standard grip anyway. My 27 is now set up for .40 as my SD/HD gun and I LOVE the feel of the 17.

On the way home from the LGS last Friday with my new 17, I drove up to the range and did a little break-in with 2 boxes of S&B 124 gr, and another (10 rd) mag of JHPs.

I think I got the kinks worked out of it!
Irresponsible use of alcohol kills many times those killed by guns. And look what happened to PROHIBITION 100 years ago!

Nice buy! I'm looking to get one this summer to go with my beloved G-26.

ADK, congrats! The G17 does have that great 'feel' like you can never miss! Good luck.
