In Italy - and in Europe, in general - 9mm is the most widely used cartridge/handgun, definitely and by far: 9 Luger for the army and state police forces, 9x21 IMI for civilians and local police dpts. So the 19 and the 17 are very very common, and I think even the "best seller". Few people, in my Country, own a Glock in .40 or in .45.
I have 17, 22, 21, 34 and 35 but, as a ten lover, as soon as possible I'm gonna buy a 20, which I love.

Wow... I´m a little surprised that the G19 is ahead in the poll. I personally voted for the G19, but my story with the g19 is not what you can call typical. Never fired one or seen one, knew little about guns and owned none but wanted a gun and asked a friend what gun to get, he told me a G19 and so I did without even trying it. that was a long time ago, now I know a little more about guns. My point is that I voted for the G19 because it was my first gun. I love it, still if I for some reason was forced to have only one gun the G19 will be the keeper, but still I would tend to think that the G17 would be on the G19 toes as favorite. Anyways Go 19... you rule!!!!

Glock 27

The Glock 27 has it all. Small size and a good punch.

G20 for sure! I wouldn't trust anything less for what i do. Can u say back woods stopping power? But i love 15 rounds the surefire x200, and my internal laser, with a safariland holster for it all.

G22 without question for the power, balance and fits my ham fist. Surgeons need delicate instruments. We clumsy mortals need forgiving but accurate ones. Interesting poll. Only five percent of us and the FBI like the G22. Thanks

To humor you, I did refer to Websters and, what do you know, it means exactly what I KNEW it meant.

Main Entry: pas·sé
Pronunciation: pa-'sA
Function: adjective
Etymology: French, from past participle of passer
1 : past one's prime
2 a : OUTMODED b : behind the times

Please read my signature, it was written for guys like you. Seek validation? What a bunch of psycho-babble!!! LOL.

Look, I signed that it was written tongue in cheek and even admitted to being a sore loser, if you choose to be offended that's your business. I like the 9mm, and I'm sure I would die a quick and urine stained death if I were to ever be shot by one.
-Dre.

PS: You forgot to mention that my Glock was made in the same country that gave us Adolf Hitler. LOL! That's what made it funny or at least abrasive....





OK, you've convinced me, I'm buying a Model 19!!! I want to be confident in my ability to end hostilities quickly. I no longer want to seek validation from others in my choice of calibers. So help me, Mr. 9mm. Let it be written, let it be done.
Hi. Sorry to get back to you so late. I was just trying to give you a hard time. No offense taken by me and none intended toward you. I did think the passe' comment was funny. While we have seen a HUGE growth in the .40's popularity it is very well behind the 9mm in sales. Maybe it's a euro-american thing? I don't know. But the 9mm is certainly not "past one's prime". Maybe the U.S. Military will adopt the .40? That would help catapult it to the top perhaps.

Wal-mart actually has the WWB 165 grn FMJ .40 cal ammo at $16.98 for 100 round value pack. The .38 special is at $18.88 for a 100 round value pack, and the 9mm is $11.98. So, the .40 is now cheaper to buy than the .38 special but has a ways to go to supplant the 9mm.

My first gun was a Ruger P91 DAO .40 cal. That long trigger stroke each time taught me how to shoot well. I have nothing against the .40. I carry a SP101 .357 mag every day and am not sensitive to recoil as the 158 grn bullet out of 2.25" barrel is quite a handful. I just shoot the 9mm because I can shoot it for very little money, accurate, and load the 124 grn +p's for business. These rounds have similar ballistics to the .40 and .45.

I am not trying to start a caliber flame with you.....they are so over done.....don't ya' think?

A 91% one shot stop (whatever that is) compared to a 95% one shot stop. Pretty close and similar ballistics. If Marshal and Sanow are right.

The Glock was also made in the same country that gave us Mozart and Freud.

Now I feel bad..

I really don't feel that strongly about caliber. I mean, what's 1mm? I'm serious about looking into a 9mm. That 19 is a good choice. I love the 23 though. Mine have been very accurate and easy to shoot. The 9mm does make sense when it comes to $$$. Ammo is so much cheaper. Like I said, everything was tongue-in-cheek, harmless ribbing. Take care.

That's what I use every week for target practice. I shoot a G-22..stock production except for Glock night sights. It feels good in my hand, shoots perfectly, and I even carry it concealed IWB behind my back.

G20 10mil. All stock. My favorite carry gun both in the woods and on the street. Accurate all day and never fails to go BOOM when you need it to.

favorite...

I have a G17 and a G21, I'm not sure which I like better...

had the 17 for over 15 yrs now and have run thousands of rounds through it without a single problem, the 21's new...

for carry I like keltec's p40 though, it's as small as u can get for the power and as long as u don't limp wrist it it'll never fail - but they quit making it

my carry in the cooler weather is the G21, when u can wear clothes to conceal it better...

is there a way to look the age up by serial number ? thanks...

Why is the G32 doing so bad? Considering all the things it has going for it...

Put the word "Glock" in front of any of their model numbers and that's my favorite gun!

The G19 is the finest all-around handgun I've ever shot so that's what I voted for.

I LOVE my G26 but for me my GLOCK 19 feels like it was made for my hand. This gun is a real nail driver.
So I'll vote for my G19.

I figured I bump up a good thread that I hadn't noticed before.

I don't currently own a glock, but I recently rented a G30. I'm impressed with it's small size and accuracy. It feels wide but it's actually narrower, shorter and less high than my compact SIG P228! But most of all I like the G30's caliber. Maybe it really is better than a 9 after all

Whichever one is in my hand! I'm serious. Glock is THAT good.

OK, if I have to pick one - it's the G19.

Valuable Info
