First time gun owner here and proud to own a G17 Gen4. What a life changing purchase it has been. Shoots like it's part of my hand, amazing. I shoot with a couple of guys that have Beretta 92's and 96's on a pretty regular basis. Recently switched out the slide stop for the extended slide stop (for me but more for my wife) and I'm very happy with how easy it is to use. I'm always open to new ideas and suggestions so I hope to be an active forum reader and contributor. Seems like a nice group.
