    For the poll I had to offer platforms like full size, compact etc because you can't list all the models in a single poll. So vote for the size platform your favorite Glock falls into and then post which model is your favorite and why.

    :)

    Always been a huge fan of the G19. Great do-it-all size pistol.

    Single stacks or the subcompacts are the only ones that seem to fit my hands correctly. I want so much to love something like the Glock 19/23 size..but they just dont fit my hand right..that said stuff like the Glock 48 and 43/43X fit well and ive strangely found the 26 works well also....

    I have always liked my 19 and think everyone should own one at least once, but I carry a full sized Glock every day and it also always comes to the range with me, so I voted that way.

    I don't carry either of mine but I certainly could if I needed to. Would be the last guns I would ever part with.

    My 20/20 vision tells me you meant to say, "20/21"...

    This is the exact reason I chose a the single stacks. They just fit my hands right. The thicker grips don’t fit well for my small hands. I do love the size of the g19 though. It’s definitely a hard gun to beat but for me at this point, 43x/48

    Compact for me, simply because I’ve carried one for over 15 years.

    Im torn between sub and compacts. Love my 26 and my 30. My 40 is awesome and gigantic, just not a good carry gun. Great nightstand gun though.

    Overall, Id go with subcompact. My 26.

    Well I had to vote long barrel cuz a 41's the only Glock I currently own. If I get another Glock, it'll most likely be a 43X or 26. I was pretty sold on getting one of those, or a p365, this summer .... but ended up buying a VP9 instead. Weird how things like that happen.

    The first time I ever shot a Glock was in 1998 when I was living in North Hollywood Ca just after the North Hollywood Bank of America robbery. I lived not far from the bank and some of my neighbors were not allowed to leave their homes until until the bank robbers were caught. A massive police presence had cordoned off teh area.

    Afterwards, many of my neighbors became first time gun buyers. One of my neighbors, a good friend, bought a brand new Glock 17 and asked me to go to the range with him and show him how to use it.

    I'd never even seen a Glock before but I'd heard about them. At the time, I carried a colt lightweight commander. I did not like the Glock at all but it was reliable right out of the box and was simple to operate for my friend who had never shot a gun before.

    But I didn't like the size or the shape of it or the way it felt in my hand and I didn't like the trigger. But then a few years later, I was at a gun show and was looking at a Glock 19 and it was like a whole different gun. I like the way it balanced in my hand and it was no bigger than it needed to be for a puny little 9mm.:D I didn't buy the gun at the gun show but the next day I found one at a local gun shop and bought it.

    Then I shot it and put about a thousand rounds through it and learned how to operate the trigger. Not long after that, I learned that Glock made a 40 caliber in the same size gun so I traded up for one of those, a Glock 23. And after that, I got a Glock 20 and even though it was a full size gun it made more sense to me that a gun in a more powerful caliber should be larger. I also liked the SF frame on the Gen 3 G20's becasue it fit my hand better.

    I've tried the baby Glocks and they are just too thick and chunky for my liking but the "compact" (mid-sized) Glocks are true perfection.

    A Gen4 G33 357SIG Subcompact using the 7151/7165 extension is top of the Glock heap. Capacity is 11+1 125-gr cartridges capable of 550 ft•lbf at ten feet in front of muzzle.

    A more interesting survey would ask about one's least favorite Glock.

    I sold my G19 years ago, but if I were to purchase another Glock, it would be a another G19.

    I have two favorites actually.
    G23 & G48.

    Starting to really like the G48, and I am 'not a 9mm guy.' Uh oh! :faint:

    Can't vote. I have a favorite for the nightstand, favorite for the front seat, favorite for carry.

    G34. I carry a G19 or G45 daily but I love shooting my G34. I shoot it better than any of my other Glock pistols. I honestly think it’s mental, like your favorite putter.[​IMG]
