So, Springfield Armory's XDS is American Rifleman's Handgun of The Year. Wonder if Glock could steal some of that thunder by creating a single stack G36S? I'm no firearms designer, but it might not be too difficult to shorten the barrel/frame (to the length of the other sub-compact's), and alter the magazine (the easy part!), to hold five rounds. The G36 (I have one) - is already thin enough to compete with the XDS. *** Disclaimer: Some may say that Glock already has that model in the G39 (which I also own). Two barriers to that pistol's success: the cartridge, and that really fat slide.*** Any thoughts, Dear Readers?
