    So I am trying to decide on a gen 5. I have a gen 4 g19 and was interested in the G45. Seems like a lot of people complain about the additional length of the grip over the g19 but it seems like it’s only .5” more on the g45. People seem to be up in arms about the additional length that it makes it very tough to conceal. It seems the 17 frame would make it a much more comfortable gun with better capacity. Am I missing something about this extra .5”? Should I stick with the g19 and just upgrade to a gen 5?

    I have a 19 and would much prefer a 45 for general use. But I also don’t carry it daily.

    It’s all preference man. I have a G19 and G45. I rotate them in my carry and tbh I enjoy the G19 more when I go out. I love the G45 but it’s better suited for me when I’m hiking through the woods.

    I have the 19x which is essentially the Glock 45, the 45 has a few minor upgrades but it’s my favorite Glock to shoot, I don’t know how to explain it but get the 45 you’ll love it and keep your 19 if you want something a little smaller to carry but I carry my 19x and never had a problem

    100% go with the 45.

    The only downside I see to the G45 is that it can’t accept the smaller G19 mags. You are limited to the G17 mags and 30 round sticks.

    I conceal 45 with zero issues, I use a q-series holster(no light), I also have big hands and the 19 my bottom two fingers hang off of it, I love it I have complete control of it and foot print is not that bad, I’ll 3 o’clock when sitting and if I’m worried about the little bit that pokes out while walking I’ll push it to one o’clock

    I haven’t shot the G45. But I love shooting my G19. I get just a hint of printing on the G19 but lots of people say they have no trouble. I’d assume the extra half inch would make my printing issues worse.

    But the thing I’ve learned is gun preferences are very much an individual thing. So, before you decide, go shoot them both if you can. Try before you buy.

    If you can effectively conceal the G45, that would be my choice.

    Get the 45! You already have a 19
