    Welcome glockit1! What does you Dad use on duty?
     
  4. i believe its a g40 i think. i can't remember its been a while since i saw the side of her. but ever since i have wanted once since i held it. but i would also like to be able to carry it when in town or in my rig. mainly around my house since we have a lot of bear, cougar and everything else. and also just to be able to get at something in a hurry, instead of runnin into the house and grabbing my shotgun lol. but ever since i could remember i loved the look of that gun. lol now its my turn to own my own glock when i get enough money lol.

    Welcome to the forum! By saying g40 did you mean .40 caliber glock. As in a model 22 or 23? The model 23 is one of the go to guns for most glock owners who want a .40 caliber as it is small enough to conceal yet large enough to allow most people to be able to fill their hand with it. The 19 and 23 are the exact same size and the only real differences are the barrel, extractor and ejector. I would like to point out that if you need to fight off a bear it would be best to get something in 10mm form as it is the same diameter as a .40 but is more powerful. ( more charge)

    Hello, Glockit1, and WELCOME to the Forum!

    uh....Glock 40? Please elaborate. I'd recommend an elaboration, before somebody gets it in his head to give you a hard time about it. We want you to feel welcome in the family! :D

    Cheers!
