    I don't know what it is, but the only Glocks I'm interested in owning are 9mm. G17 or 34 for USPSA Production/house&business gun, G26 for carry. If I ever get the money to shoot USPSA Limited I'll be getting a 1911 style .40 S&W. A Glock just can't be as good as a high end 1911 for high level competition shootemup.

    +1.

    I've got a lone G21 that sits in my safe. The rest are 9mm's.

    The only Glock that I'm interested in is the G17 with possibly a G17L if I ever come across one. So, don't be surprised if you don't care for other calibers in Glocks.

    I think that for me, my turnoff is because they don't offer what "I" want: a single-stacked full-sized .45Auto Glock. I don't want the mini-Glock with single-stack mag. I want a full-sized Glock .45 with single stack mag. Why? My hands aren't orangutan hands. I can't grip through the girth of the double-stack .45 pistol grip.

    The only Glocks I own are a G17,G34, and a G19. I love 9mms. The G17 is the best shooting handgun I have ever owned.

    Yah, i am only interested in the 9mm Glocks too. Except if the .45 GAP ever becomes mainstream. That Glock 37 looks fun!;I

    I agree. I wouldn't mind having all of the 9mm models eventually, but I'm in no rush. I have no desire to buy .357 or .40 and no Glock .45 could ever win favor over my Kimber

    The Glock 17 is the Glock for me right now, the 26 having been traded for a soon-to-come-home 6" S&W 629. I can't wrap my hands around the 10mm/.45 Glock frame and I want (WANT not NEED) more horsepower for a woods gun than even the mighty 10mm can give me. That kind of leaves me looking at a wheelgun.

    Otherwise, I am quite happy when shooting the G17. Except I can't get over this feeling when I get home and toss it back in the dark corner of the safe, it is just a base tool, like a hammer or an axe.

    I own three Glocks, but none are 9mm at this time. I like 9mm's, but like the 357 and 10mm better.

    I do not own a Glock in 9mm. Maybe one day. I prefer the .40 Glocks. In my mind, the 9mm (for the most part) is better in smaller CCW guns, even smaller than the G26. But I have small hands.

    For 9mm, I really like the Kahrs. The gun fits the size of the round better, for me. The Kahr PM9 is probably the best CCW gun out there. I enjoy BHP's in 9mm though... Kind of a soft spot I have.

    I love 9mm's but not just 9mm's.

    Frankly, I've come to the conclusion that Glocks were originally designed to be 9mm's and forcing other more powerful calibers into that frame is kind of 'pushing the envelope'. I don't really trust the .40s in a Glock and don't want a 357SIG. The only other Glock besides a 9 that I trust is the 37. The .45 GAP brass is reinforced and made to work at higher pressures in a partially-supported chamber.

    I'm mainly interested in the 9mm in EVERY handgun.
    I think it's a love of all guns Euro.
    I do have (and always have had) a strange attraction to the Glock 29 for some reason.
    One of these days I guess I'll have to feed that monster. ;)
    That is,if I ever feel like re-loading again.
    9mm can be bought cheaper than I can reload it and my other caliber firearms get shot so little that the cost of ammo doesn't matter.

    My first glock is going to be in 9mm (most likely a G34 with a G17 a close second). Lot of other nice 9mm (H&K, SIG, and Baretta come to mind).

    I have shot the G17, G27, G22, and G19 and I just like the larger frame 9mm glocks.
