    Have wanted a Glock for many years, tomorrow my G21 Gen4 is due in. Since ordering it last week, I've found and joined Glock Talk. Spent last few days reading prior posts on both the G21 and G19 Gen 4's - appreciate all those who shared comments in the posts as trying learn and absorb.

    Appreciate suggestions on cleaning, ammunition, night sights upgrade, holster (left handed), etc.

    Thanks

    Good Luck.. I have a Gen4 G21 and she is a sweet ride. If you can install a set of Trijicon Night Sights....

    Congrats, and welcome to GT!

    I'll answer what I can here from your post:

    Cleaning: Hoppe's No. 9 solvent, CLP for lube
    Ammunition: for SD, use Hornady Critical Defense and Speer Gold Dot LE
    Night sight upgrade: try shooting with the stock sights first to see how you do with those. I use Trijicon HD, TruGlo TFO, XS Big Dot, and Glock night sights on mine...
    Holster: I really like Comp-Tac MTAC for IWB

    G21 Gen4 is one of my favorite Glocks, and definitely one of my favorite Gen4 models.

    I'm new here as well. I've had a Glock 17 and 19 for many years, but just picked up a G21, Gen 4 and a G36 in the past week. The 21 is really sweet. It may convince me to sell one of my custom 1911s.
