    Hi all--

    Have to use my GSSF Coupon. I currently have a Gen 2 Glock 19, Gen 3 Glock 27, and a Gen 4 Glock 17. I only want a 9mm, 40 S&W, or .45 ACP and only want a Gen 4.

    Can't decide what to purchase--can anyone help!? I'm COMPLETELY OPEN. Guns I've considered so far--26, another 19, 21, 23, 34.

    Thx.

    If your anything like me, after owning 9 and 40's, you'll never feel right holding a G21.

    I would be torn to the point of flipping a coin on either a 21 or 35 well.....a 27 too

    I have definitely been thinking a little more about a 21 more than the other models.....seems to fill a hole in my collection of Glocks. I like the idea of a high-cap .45, reduced recoil, and small/comfortable grip--seems as though the Gen 4 benefits show up the most in this particular model.

    But--that being said--I just can't decide. I think if they made a compact .45 ACP (like the 19 or 23) I'd be sold. The 21 is a pretty big fellow.

    What are you wanting it for? If just playing around I would get a G35. You can get a 9mm barrel for it and shoot 9mm also. They are fun, accurate guns to shoot.

    Edit: I don't think that one is on the coupon list.
    If you can't get that I would get a G22 or G23.

    Not buying it for any special purpose (I have all my bases already covered for CCW, target shooting, just having fun, etc.). Just another gun for the safe to pull out occasionally.

    21 is a great gun but fully loaded its like carrying a brick made of lead. Even the Glock 30 when loaded is just to heavy for me. I have a Glock 21, 21SF, 30 and 30sf. I've tried carrying the 30 and 30sf and just couldn't get use to the weight.

    What do you want to do with this new gun? You have all the sizes covered except the longer barrels. Go for a 34 or 35. I just bought a Glock 36 and love the way it feels in my hand.

    Actually based off this, Just get a 32.
    Sell the 27 for a 26.

    You got a good enough
    collection of Glocks already.
    Best spend your money on making them better.
    Better sights, trigger job, grip reduction to remove blackstrap hump, practice ammo & advanced shooting training classes & practice ammo.

    I agree. You need a .45 in your collection!

    Something else to think about is what it will cost you in extras to ad another caliber/size to your stable. Whenever I get a new gun/caliber I plan on at least 1000.00 total cost (gun Included).

    For exams ( for me this is how it would go)

    -glock 21...500.00
    -better sights....100.00ish
    -holster 50-100.00 (unless you have a g20)...
    -a few cases of ammo (I'll never keep a fun around that I don't have plenty of ammo for....300-500.00
    -sd ammo (if it will be carried) 5 boxes to test reliability, plus a few to load the gun up with....150.00ish
    -extra mags(at least 3 plus the 2 it comes with).

    Point being if you are goin to add a new size pistol or a new caliber, price of the pistol can be deceiving.

    I'm picking up a g21 next week and I have already planned it as a 1200 dollar plus purchase.

    Something to think about

    I'd go with a G26 for carry or a G34 for range use.
