    Going to the GS Saturday, ready for another Glock.
    I have 2 g26's and a g19, trying to decide what to buy next. I have owned Glocks for year's now, and owned about every one made at one time or another. I also stockpile 9mm ammo, and I don't really want to stockpile another caliber. I'm thinking of a G36, with just enough carry ammo for testing and occasional plunking. Any ideas ?

    Consider trading in one of your G26s on a G43. Ammo dilemma goes away.

    What role do you want to fill? You have great carry guns but maybe a 43 for when you need something smaller. For a range toy a 34 makes sense.

    Gen 3 G20. You're even more welcome!

    You'll need to buy a reloading press to go along with it, but you should do that anyway.

    Thx for the replies. Not interested in the 43, since I usually carry a 26 at all times. I would LOVE a g20 or g29 or gg40, but there goes the ammo thing. I sold all my .40's a while back along with the ammo, so I'm trying to not stockpile another caliber. The thing about the g36 is, I wouldn't store hundreds and hundreds of rounds for it, just mainly carry ammo . I was thinking I might rotate it into the edc occasionally.
    What I REALLY want is a g41, but then I would buy 20 mags and 1000 rounds of ammo and my wife would KILL me lol

    Since you are considering a 45acp pistol, look at the Glock 30. Basically the same size as the Glock 19 and quite accurate. If you want to stick with 9mm, check out the Glock 17 and glock 34. If you want to go big, look at the Glock 41.

    Yeah, I've had a couple of 30's, just never really warmed up to them. I DO like the 30s, so that's a consideration. Hell, knowing me I'll probably just buy another 19. I don't own a gen 4 yet, maybe I should just do that. I already have plenty of mags and ammo !

    Too bad you are sticking with the 9mm. I absolutely love my G32 in .357sig, identical size as your G19 and works in the same holsters. Like a G19 on steroids for carry. Practice with the G19 for grip and trigger control then do a couple of mags through the G32 for familiarization of recoil, and carry it for self defense. Shoots like a laser.

    If there is any way you can get your hands on a Glock 36 to shoot before you buy, so it (and maybe you have). I owned one for a time and it just wasn't for me- I have larger hands so the single-stack/thin grip which was great for ccw, didn't fit my hand well and I wasn't crazy about the capacity. I'd strongly suggest a Glock 21, it's arguably my favorite Glock, although I'm a loyal G-19 carrier.

    34 MOS if you can find one. They look fun.

    Have (3) 26's, tried to like the 36, could not have two 30s that I really like. The 41 is nice but the 21 makes more sense, hence the 30s relative to everyday carry.

    The 30s will surprise you and it will not dissapoint, suggest you give it a try.

    If the G36 is on the possibility list, do check out the G30S. I own a non SF G30, a G36, and a 30S and the 30S is the best of both worlds.

    I have big hands as well. My issue with the 36 was not the thinned grip, but that they did not reduce the thickness back to front. The grip feels strange to me.

    I'd say G43 or G17. If you want another caliber and are thinking .45, a G21 would be nice.

    I have a G-17 and a G-30SF. I highly recommend the Glock 30SF. Fun to shoot, accurate, and as concealable as a G-19. As for me, my first gun was a Glock 22, then a Glock 23, then another Glock 22 with adjustable sites, ... As for caliber, .40 is number 1 for me, .45 ACP number 2, .357 Sig tied for number 2, .357 Magnum also tied for number 2, ditto for 7.62 x 25, ...

    Trade one of the G26 for a G43 and pick up a new G34 MOS.
