    1. GLOCK is a 31 thats comped with 5 extra mags for $575 problem is 4 of the mags are only ten rounders. Gun is used but very little.

    2. GLOCK 31 is brand new with adjustable sights for $509 OTD

    3. GLOCK is a brand new G19 for $484 OTD

    Just for background I have a 23/32, a 17 and 26

    Is the pistol going to have a particular purpose, or is it just the next one in your collection?

    Try firing a compensated pistol from the hip, or often called the close quarters retention position. Just be sure to wear full goggle protection.....:what:

    Looks like you already have enough Glocks, why not spend the money on something different? None of those choices will be much different from what you already own. Try out a Sig, H&K, M&P, Steyr,.....there are lots of fish in the sea. From you list though, I would choose the 19 in 9mm.

    Glock 19. 9mm rounds are cheap, and the gun is perfect for all around use IMO (cc and home defense).

    A Glock 19 was my first Glock. It was a nice pistol and a great size. 9MM is also good round.

    Glock 19...unless you wanted a CCW...then I'd recommend Glock 26 which is what I carry daily.

    I just got a G19 (last night) as my first glock. I got it to match a Sub 2000, for something cheaper than .45 but more substantial than .22LR to plink with, and as a potential carry gun sized in between two others makes of pistols I already have.

    The intended purpose of a pistol, and the traits one finds most desirable makes a big difference in what is the best choice. What is the prupose of this purchase?

    I almost always prefer a fullsize over a midsize like the Glock 19, but when it comes to the .357sig; I'd have to side with the more common, easier shooting 9mm. Don't get me wrong, .357sig is a very good round; but these days the oddball calibers take the backseat in my book. Go with the Glock 19, grab a few of the G18 mags and never look back. :)

    Nice signature. I'd go with the G19 since you've already got 2 other Glocks that shoot 9mm. That way you can interchange ammo and even the mags. Your 17 mags can be used to reload the 19 and both the 17 and 19 mags can be used to reload the 26.

    Personally I've got the 19 (which is why my alias is louie19) and eyeing a 26 as a backup gun. Same reasoning - interchange ammo and mags.

    I believe the Glock 19 will prove more versitile and cheaper to feed.

    As much of a Glock (sig) fan as I am, I would say to get G19 instead since you have the 32.

    I vote for the G19, purely on the basis of 9mm rounds being far, far less expensive than .357 SIG rounds.

    Besides, it's not as if an attacker would say, "Hey, buddy, ya should've shot me with a .357 SIG! Don't'cha know all the forum guys say the .357 has vastly superior terminal ballistics, compared to your wimpy 9mm? Since you just shot me with the lowly 9mm, I'm just gonna keep comin' at ya." :neener:
