    My son graduated from the academy in September and his 21st birthday is this month. I want to get him a .45 but not sure which one.It will probably will be an EDC but not sure. He already has a G23 and G42.Your thoughts. Thanks.
    P.S. This won't be his duty gun

    Do you know what will be his duty gun? Maybe get him a sub-compact in the same caliber as a carry/BUG.


    FWIW - I handled a 41 for the first time today, and really liked it. :supergrin:

    It's only fitting to get him a G21 on his 21st b-day.

    What's nice about the G41 is that it has the thin slide like the G30S and G36.

    Graduated before age 21? Wow. First you need to find out what his department allows and will supply ammo for during his practice and qualification sessions. And if it's a duty gun good holster selection for a new model may be limited.

    ^^ This. I really like mine a lot. If someone offered me another Glock in 45acp, I'd choose another G41. Same weight as a 35. Fits a 34/35 gen4 holster.

    Agreed. It has some meaning to get a 21 from your father on your 21st bday

    I suppose that would be OK but I also think that it would be cool to surprise him because he has no idea that I want to do this.
