    As a retired cop, I get it.

    Retention holsters, some of which require rocking or twisting to release, are easier to use with a full-size grip. When the release is accomplished, there's less slide to get clear of the holster. This is particularly nice when you are forced to draw from a seated position.

    The shorter slide means a shorter overall duty holster may be used, which translates to less duty holster jammed into the seat. One less PITA for folks suffering with a bat-belt full of equipment.

    My only complaint would be the platform isn't available in 40 or 45 yet.

    The G45 with it’s slightly thinner grip circumference and extra length are what sold me. After years of shooting lots of small self defense pistols, I have found that full size handles make accurate shooting much easier. The texture is better than on my Gen 3 pistols, no Talon grip needed.

    The only other Glocks that work as well for me are the 26 and 27 models which tuck nicely under the base of my thumb allowing me to center them in my hand and align the slide with my arm.

    They did. I bought one. Threaded barrel serialized to the frame with suppressor-height night sights.
