Hello to all in da "Band".

I have brother-in-law in the Philippines who wishes to buy a Glock in the Philippines. Since I live in the United States, I have access to many different calibers of ammunition. I own many firearms. But I have a difficult time recommending a specific model of Glock to my B-I-L. I would like to get a survey of what many of you in the P.I. Would recommend.

I want to thank everyone ahead of time for your input and recommendations. I hope to return the favor to you all, so please don't hesitate to e-mail or IM me ..... Salamat Po!!

Right now, as far as i KNow, there are no brand new Glocks for sale to civilians in RP. You may come across 2nd hand Glocks. I'd recommend the Glock 21 of course but if it's too bulky for your brother in law, then the G17 or even the G19.

Does anyone know why there are no more glocks in the market here in RP? Was thinking of getting a G23, pero wala na ako makita. Wala na daw nagbebenta. Why of why po?

to make a long story short. the distributor was caught selling to BG's i.e. triad people.

Is the .40 caliber round as popular in the Philippines as it is here in the US? And, are high capacity magazines permitted in the PI?

The .40 is quite popular in the Philippines (especially IPSC shooters), but not as popular as the .45 ACP, 9mm or .38 Special.

Yes, high cap mags are permitted in the Philippines.

I'd go for either the Glock 17, 19 or 26.

isuzu,

you'll be surprised how popular 40sw is here nowadays, i'd dare say it is even more popular the 45acp, just look at the results of the matches, majority of the shooter are in standard division and 99% use 40sw.

You're right. I've seen a lot of shooters switching to the .40 before I left. The only time I got to shoot the .40 was when my brother loaned me his BUL M5 and I shot a match in Tennessee. The recoil was very manageable, and I was beginning to like the BUL M5.

How does the .40 S&W compare to the 9mm and .45 ACP as a carry gun back home?

Glock 19 or Glock 22 IMO.---------Sweater
I agree with Sweater re the G19. I read somewhere that the G19 is the best all-around Glock. Here, serious shooters swear by the Glock, either the G17 (the new olive-drab one) or the G19. Haven't seen a .40 Glock lately, but our club was the site of a spectacular .40 kaboom (before I came in), so that might explain it.

9 mm na lang mura ang bala. But I carry a G 23 for daily carry. Bigger is better diba. G 19 with NS is at bedside ready.

9 mm FMJ Winchester 100 rd bulk is now almost $ 20 here at Walmart.

There are also people who swear by the Glock 19's grip profile. It's better kuno compared to the Glock 17.

I may be wrong, but based on experience, the Glock 19 has a smoother trigger compared to the Glock 17. I've tried several Glock 17s and 19s (aside from my own) when I was still living in the Philippines, and I've observed the same results.
