    I currently have a G21 and a G36. The G36 is my daily carry and my G21 is my nightstand gun. Im going to be receiving my next GSSF coupon soon and need some guidance in which way i should spend it.

    G19 would fit into my G36 holsters from what Im told, and that would make for a great alternate daily carry.

    G30 would complete my 45acp Glock collection and with a 9 round baseplate would make a great alternate for daily carry as well but would require a new holster (unless I make a G30/36 hybrid from what Im told).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The G19 would give you the ability to shoot less expensive ammunition, and might prove handy if there is a point when you can get 9mm but not .45.

    Since you already have a 21 and 36, I'd say go for the 19. I have a Gen3 19 and 26, and will be using my next discount for either a 21 or 30 in Gen4. You'll have fun with the 19.

    You have the .45 dept. covered pretty well. I'd go with the G19 Gen 3 if I were you. You'll enjoy shooting the G19, and practice for less dough. :cool:

    When I saw the title of this thread, I was thinking "they're the same size - G30 all the way". However, since you have Glocks on either side of the G30 in the size/capacity/.45 continuum, I'd say get a 19, or a 26, or a 17, or a 34...

  7. I suggest the G19, as others pointed out it is cheaper to shoot.

    I "vote" G19 as well. I've got IWB and OWB holsters for my 19 and my 36 fits them fine. I find the 19 easier to shoot and more accurate than the 36.

    G19 or G17, cheaper to shoot. G19 can use same holsters etc.

    Seems you have the HD and carry covered, I'd look for a G17L or G34 for fun, something to trick out with a red dot.

    Easy, I would sell the 36 and buy the 30, it is the 45 glock to carry.

    Use the coupon on the 19.

    21,30 and 19 is one dope stable of Glocks. I know cause it's what's in my safe and hip.
