    So in about 3 weeks I'm going to make my first Glock purchase. I am getting a brand new Glock 21 Gen 4:) I was also going to buy a Ruger GP100 .357 but no one has them in stock where I live so I thought what the hell, ill get another glock!! But what caliber to choose?? I don't want another .45 so if you guys were in my position what would you choose as your second caliber glock?? Opinions appreciated:)

    G23... in my opinion, GLOCKS's greatest pistol!

    If I was to choose the .40cal I would want the Glock 22. I prefer full size pistols. The .40cal was my first choice if I were to buy another glock but I'm very uneducated on the .40cal being used in Glock pistols. How reliable is the .40cal in Glock's?

    very reliable and very soft with the Gen4 platform. It was my first Glock and I was expecting it to jump out of my hands the way people described the recoil, but it was nothing.

    If you want a different caliber Glock to supplement your model 21, i would give strong consideration to one of the 9x19 models, either the 17, 19, or the 26.

    9x19 was 2nd choice if I got a second Glock, but I've heard stories of the Gen 4's having problems with the 9mm. Unless they are. Currently fixed? Can someone explain?

    Get the Glock 20!! It's got power that can match the .357mag or even surpass it with some of the 200gr., 230gr. rounds that are loaded to 1300fps by Buffalo Bore, Underwood, And DT.

    or a 17/19 for cheaper shooting (9x19) and easier to come by with in terms of finding ammo...

    What he said. 15 rounds of 10mm=lots of firepower

    My glock progression is going to be 45 to 9. I've never been a huge fan of the .40.

    I agree, there is talk of this on GT, and while I am not disputing it in the least, it is completely foreign to me. All i know is my 2009 Generation 3 Glock 19 and 26 have been flawless from day one.

    I'd recommend shooting some of the other caliber Glocks, so you can make a decision on a caliber you'll also have to feed in addition to you .45ACP.

    Of all the Glocks I own, the G21 Gen4 is my favorite. I've really enjoyed shooting .357SIG & 10mm lately, too. I load my ammo, and they all take about the same amount of time to crank out some rounds once the press is setup for a particular caliber.

    G19. Small enough to carry but big enough to fight with.
