    What is the snappiest Glock you have personally shot? I’m certainly not recoil sensitive and don’t think any Glock is hard to control, but if I had to pick one it would be the G29 with a hot Underwood load.

    Snappiest I've shot is the G36. I'm sure it isn't what the G29 could potentially be, though.

    My 29 trumps all the others I've shot.

    Just from video I would say 29, it may rank close to one of those s&w scandium .44 mags.

    G29 with the G27 coming in a close second-place.

    I haven't shot the 10mm but the .357 Sig is pretty snappy.

    Rapid fire it with a G36, back to back, with standard pressure target ammo and you'll know you heard wrong. G29 with some of the loads out there will surely be worse than the G36.

    .45 acp has PF loadings up to 236

    10mm can be 243, or more.

    .40 S&W at 201

    The PF's for the .45 and .40 are the highest I've personally seen that you can buy as new manufactured ammo. Most ammo makers in those calibers do not load them that stout, but they are available.

    Standard pressure PF's for .45 neighborhood 196...not much lower unless it's match ammo. For the .40, it's around 178. Heck, it's only 169 for .357 Sig target ammo.

    "Snap"? "Snappiest"? WTH, is that an engineering term? WTH does that MEAN? Define it.

    My G33 with a G27 barrel and my Longshot hand-loads - (155 G-D bullet + Longshot + new Starline brass). This runs a little north of 1400 fps. :D

    The G.29 with some of the hotter stuff definitely gets your attention

    People always told me my former G27 was. It wasn't.
    And, no, I didn't sell it because it was snappy. I sold it to move all 9mm.

    Absolutely! I got rid of my two. Not fun to shoot.
    I now have a 33, which is a close runner up to the 29.

    That's approaching 220 PF. Yep, it would be snappy.
