There is your modern, 9x18 with a polymer frame.

But it is a Glock. I just don’t do Glock.


I used to be that way, but I got over it :)
I had a Glock 19 and 21 years ago, they were meh to me.

Then during the Obama years I was pretty much all revolvers.
I picked up a Glock 42 last year, wanting a .380 that I will actually shoot more then a couple mags though at a time.
It's really a nice little gun. I now have more then a few Glocks, easy to work on, crazy after market support.

G27 here. Late 90's. Traded off on a nice .22 rifle, happy to see it go.

As a result of this thread, and seeing one perform, I have a G48 ordered. Back in the fold?

Resistance is futile :)
Yeah the 48, 43X and 43 are pretty nice.

Was eliminated very early in this competition. Cool name, tho.

I'm going to name my new Glock "belchfire 9 maxi-compact".

You made that decision a page ago.

The American Indians found out what happens when you don't control immigration.

Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency.
