Glock 17 vs Glock 19

The way I see it the most you can conclude from the recent military pistol trials is that a number of branches don’t think the added sight radius and barrel length of the full-size slide assembly really matters. If a person does have large hands I still think there’s something to be said for getting a solid grip on the pistol and for some people the difference between a G17 and a G19 makes that difference important. I’m not one of them because I have smaller hands.
