GLOCK G17 Gen 3
Many people are still fond of the Glock G17 Gen 3 model despite the newer models. The Glock G17 is possibly one of the most well-known handguns in the world, used by civilians, law enforcement, and militaries alike. The Gen 3 G17 still has a ton of features that make it an excellent choice for concealed carry, home defense, or just range use. A hotly debated issue, the finger grooves on the polymer frame grip are loved by some and hated buy others. However, it does allow you to have a consistent grip every time and helps to keep your hand high up on the grip for better recoil management for fast follow up shots. The aggressive texturing on the backstrap, finger grooves, and front of the trigger guard, give you a firm purchase when wearing gloves. The polymer frame also includes a rail for attaching a pistol light. The Glock G17 Gen 3 handgun is still a contender for one of the best carry guns on the market.
