Also, here are the individual reviews of both Glock 17 and Glock 22 that I have done:
Glock 17 Gen 5 Review (SECOND Most Popular Glock Model) –
Glock 22 Gen 5 Review (Another 40 S&W Glock Gen 5 Review) –

Overall, you get from these Glock pistols exactly what you expect from a Glock. Easy operation, basic design, reliable performance. Both of these are full size Glock models. These Glock handguns are a great option for home defense or as a side arm. Are any of these the best Glock for home defense? Definitely in my top 5!
