Monday morning, April 16th. Just got out of the shower, ready to clean my guns and continue organizing my workshop. Really quick - is there an online breakdown of the differences between generations of the G19? I saw the sticky, but I think that focuses mainly on the 17. Reason for asking: my best friend says she's getting ready to buy her first Glock. I told her to get a G19.4 (only reason I told her gen4 was because that's what I have) or a G17 gen 3, 4 or 5. My feeling is that a 19 will be her best choice for a first Glock because the backstraps and beavertails will give her 5 different ways to make the grip feel in her hands. But, her hands are only 1/2" shorter than mine, so a 17 might be a good fit. BUT... it's less concealable so my thinking goes back to the 19. I don't know how she'll conceal; in a purse probably. This morning I'm going to try to talk her into signing up here.
