I know a Glock is a Glock, but since the G36 is the only pistol in the "Slimline", it is a different kind of Glock to me. You really don't hear a whole lot of folks carrying one so I wanted to find a place where folks who do will feel welcome and to try to get some more to join the club. Why did you choose the G36? What were the contributing factors? How do you carry it? Any other information you want to post about the G36, let's lay it out here. As for me, I chose the G36 because, well, its a Glock! Some of the factors that helped in my decision where of course, caliber. Its a .45 ACP, which is an excellent choice for personal defense. The single stack design made it easier to hold in my smallish hands. And the thinner grip made it super comfortable to conceal carry. It is also a very versitile carry gun. I usually carry it in a paddle holster, but often will conceal in an IWB, a pocket holster, or even an ankle holster. It is a little lacking in number of rounds, but I also carry 2 spare magazines and will be adding a +1 extension on each. The G36 is my all around gun. Fun to shoot, easy to carry, and good for defending against 2-legged and 4-legged threats. When I go out in the woods, I simply load it up with a heavy flat-nosed FMJ and I am good against the 3 major 4-legged threats around Alabama. Black bear, feral hog, and mountain lion. That is my reason for this wonderful gun. Who else is in the club?
