    I recently purchased my first pistol. I have always had a 1911 bug. Problem that I found though is that it may not be practical for me to carry a full size 1911. So I got the best of both worlds, in my opinion, and bought a G36. I now have my compact CCW and my .45acp. I have noticed that the G36 isn't talked about that much on here compared to other Glock models. Is there a particular reason for that?

    Most favor a G30 because of capacity.

    I carry as few as 5 rounds in a revolver so I am not typical. I like the gun and have one, also. However, for the same thickness I can carry a 23/27 with more capacity.

    BEWARE... You can not stop at just one Glock.

    And Welcome to GT.

    I think capacity is why.
    It's ironic, as many seem to want a single stack Glock in other calibers (9mm).
    Seems like those that have a G36 love them.

    I've been tempted myself.
    But just keep getting different barrels and mags for my G27 instead - LOL.
    Now I can run 9mm/357/40.

    I'm a little afraid of holding a G36 in my hand.
    As I may not be able to release it...

    I noticed the "single stack" threads. They are a little confusing. I like the expression "if you are gonna be a bear, be a grizzly". I figure no better way to be a Grizzly than with a .45. If im gonna carry a single stack firearm with limited capacity I want power readily available.
