    I’ve been on the lookout for one at a reasonable price. Could be a while

    Forgive my ignorance but what are the GAPs?

    GAP 45. Glock Automatic Pistol 45cal. Developed for Glock models 37, 38 and 39. One of Gaston's few bad ideas.

    Mine would probably be:
    1. Glock 19
    2. Glock 20
    3. Glock 43X
    4. Glock 21
    5. Glock 17

    And the 27 can be converted to a 26 or a 32 using conversion barrels. The 40 cals are very versatile.

    It somewhat makes sense and if there was a 10 round mag limit nationwide it might’ve faired better.
    A .45 that fits in the regular frame Glocks instead of the huge gripped 20/21 size pistols.
    But alas even the few LE agencies that went for them, I believe have transitioned to 9mm guns.
    Even Texas DPS went to 9mm from the fantastic.357Sig.:oops:

    All 9mm and a .22! I am not sold on the 9mm man stopping ability. Being a lighter recoiling round doesn't mean squat to me! I was raised on 40’s and losing 1 or 2 rounds in a mag is okay. Having the same size pistol is a plus. I do carry mini 9’s in shorts weather here in New Mexico, but it's not my preference. The 10mm is my favorite in a G29 with a shoulder holster with a vest or light jacket!!!!!!!!

    I haven’t been a “gun guy” for very long. I inherited my first guns a couple years ago when my FIL passed.
    When I purchased my Glocks, 9mm was relatively cheap and readily available. I wasn’t worried about stopping power. I have other guns for stopping power, albeit those aren’t for EDC.
    Here in the Houston area, it’s almost always shorts weather so hiding a full sized pistol under a jacket is maybe possible 2 months out of the year. Heck, last week we had temps in the mid 70s

    If you liked Glocks, I agree with your choice!! Many ”gun experts” in the gun shops try to push the most expensive guns as the best! Not the way to go!!!! Not in my mind anyway!! Many might disagree but I go for ”reliablity”, endurance, practicality, and the best trigger I can find! For safety I limit the trigger pull to more than 3 pounds with minimal travel for carry guns. I have target guns that are less.

    Nice thing about a Glock is all this can be fit to one's liking!

    Bro is buying his G37 from the FHP. Just because it's his first duty weapon. The ballistics of that round was pretty decent. Yet 10+1(?) not good when they tell you you can only carry 3 spare mags.

    They now have transitioned to the G45!

    Hopefully he will never need more than 41 rounds. My G27 doesn't hold many either but I carry a G22 mag for extra.

    Like I said, he has a G45 now. So 51rds on his belt, and 17+1 in the gun.

    He was always really good in competition with his G30SF. Only Glock he had! Frequently winning the heavy metal division or whatever they call it at the GSSF matches. It was his carry gun for many years.

    Man I wouldn’t want to have to carry 10 + 1 as a uniformed officer. Maybe as a Detective.

    Up into the 90’s most cops carried 6 in the gun and one to two reloads. 18 total, almost seems incomprehensible today.

    And that is a G17 sized frame too. He has talked about converting to a 9mm. The hole in the slide is too big for a 9mm barrel.

    Revolvers! My first duty weapon was a Glock 17 G1.

    I started with autos too but I liked to wear a revolver(s) every once in awhile.
