    I shoot mine more often than I do my 1911s these days.

    My "emergency" loaded mags shelf has G21 mags on it, and no other .45s.

    I had a Gen2.5 and now a Gen4. I shoot it better than my smaller framed guns. It's fine carried appendix on a decent belt. I'd hate to see it go away.

    Since retiring I haven't touched a G21 (that was the duty issue). When looking to get back into 45acp personally I thought about the G21 but then fell into a deal for an HK USP 45. Never gave the G21 a second thought after that.

    I’ve kept one in my nightstand for years and it gets regular trips to the range with factory ammo and my reloads.

    Reminds me of the quote by Douglas MacArthur... "Old soldiers never die; they just fade away".

    I have a Gen 3 but would prefer a Gen 4 with the adjustable backstrap. I got it from a brother in law and didn't know much about Glocks at that time. It's a bit too large for my hands, it seems.

    I have 2, a G21SF and a G21 gen4. I'm looking for a blue label G30 gen4, can't find one. Did Glock stop production of large frame gen4s?

    I had one. Although I have large hands, it was just too bulky for me...even though I had the SF model.

    Mine turned into an HK45.

    My EDC is my G30S. I still have and I love my G21 Gen 3, but ever since I got my G41 my G21 stays in the safe. If I want a full size GLOCK 45 acp, I always grab that G41 now. I just like it better. But that doesn't mean I don't like my G21.

    If I didn't have a G30S and G30 my G21 would see a lot more use.

    I still want a gen4 21S. If Glock doesn’t make it I’d like to see an aftermarket slide and barrel for the 21 (slim like the 41).

    Picking up my 3rd 21.3 today actually. I like carrying my 30.3 and I'd love to add a 41 to the lineup some day. Since the announcement of Glock discontinuing the Gen 4 pistols I've been wondering about the fate of the 21 also. If they keep making the Gen 3's that would be fine with me.

    Gen3 G21 doesn’t fit my hands. I’ve never seen in person a gen4. I’m hoping for a gen5 G21.

    I have a G21 and G30, both Gen 4. Neither fits my hand as well as I'd like - they're just a little too thick. But neither are going anywhere anytime soon...

    i want a 21. i had rented one twice at the range, and love it. but with things the way they have been, i was told there is such a back order to them being built, over the 9 MM's.

    no LGS or the range have any, nor any idea on when they will start being built.

    Great gun, but...I’m one of the weirdos that prefers the G37 instead.

    The 21SF is my favorite Glock. I really enjoy shooting it. Also, if someone were to "declare war" on me, the 21SF, loaded with high quality ammunition, is the handgun I would want to have. Not that there's anything wrong with 9mm, 40S&W, or 357Sig.

    I have a Gen3 SF 21 and a Gen4 21. Love both. The Gen4 stays in the safe in case the SF breaks down. (Fat Chance) I shoot the SF 21 better than any pistol I own. It is my main carry pistol. I carry it in a Simply Rugged Cuda owb holster under a untucked shirt. It prints a little but nobody seems to notice. Having 14 rounds of 230 Gold Dots on tap is very comforting.

    The G21 is a nice pistol. Of all Glocks it’s the one I would be most likely to buy.

    But for a big, home defense .45 the FNX-45 is the better option and my choice.

    2 more mag capacity and much softer shooting makes it the winner.
