After reminding the Finance Committee (wife) that my birthday is in 3 weeks, I almost had her authorization to buy a new G17. Academy Sports had a Gen3 for $525. I thought about the GSSF option, which was $425 + $60 membership dues + $30-$50 FFL fee = $515-$535. So $525 isn't so bad. I got her to handle it and understand why I want it, she almost caved! I'm sad, but I don't really need one right now, but I'll get one by this summer: a few gun shows coming up and I'm looking to attend the Dec 1st GSSF shoot in San Antonio. So I suppose I'm in no hurry. However, my trigger finger isn't happy with me right now. With luck, perhaps I can find a G17 RTF2 at one of the shows.
