I see a lot of threads, in which people ask other forum members which Glock they should buy, so I've decided to share some thoughts on the subject. These are my suggestions on how to end up with the right Glock... Don't ask anyone else which Glock is best because the number of different answers you get will be as many as the number of people you ask. You really need to make this decision on your own, in order to get the Glock that is best for YOU. You need to find a place (gun show, gun store, etc.) where you can pick up and hold all the different Glock sizes to see which frame is the most comfortable in your hands. Next, you need to pick a caliber. To do this, you need to fire the different models that are available with the frame that you have chosen, to see which one you feel most comfortable firing and you also need to look at the cost of the ammunition in the different calibers. Once you have taken these steps, you will have settled on a specific Glock model and you will be ready to make your purchase. So, for the sake of using an example, let's say that a man goes to the gun store, wanting to buy a Glock pistol. He picks up all the frames and decides that the subcompact is the most comfortable for him. Since the subcompact is available on the Glock 26 (9mm) and the Glock 27 (.40), he takes both to the range to try them out. After shooting both, he decides that he really likes shooting the .40 caliber Glock 27. Then he looks at the ammunition prices and decides that, even though he liked the .40, the 9mm is the only one that he can afford to practice enough with. So, for this particular person, the best Glock is the 9mm Glock 26. Keep in mind that this is just an example and that we all will have different likes/dislikes, as well as different budgets. Anyway, I hope this post was helpful, especially to those of you who are new to all of this Glock (or other gun) stuff.
