    I have a keltec sub2000 which shoots a 40 caliber ammo and an ar15 which shoots the same ammo using the glock magazine. I figured since I shoot these I might as well try a glock in 40caliber since I have the mags already. Are the 40 caliber glock any good, is my question
     
  2. Hell yeah they are good. G23 all day long
     

  3. Any Glock is good. G27 subcompact, G23 Compact, G22 full size. Do you think you would come to a Glock forum and someone would bash them?
     
  4. Well when you have noobs complaining of failures which are more than likely operator error.................

    I guess I was really asking should I stay with the 40 caliber or are one of the other glock calibers better than the 40. Or does it really matter.
     
  6. depends on lots of things, mostly on what your plans are for the weapon. I love the 40 S&W round but my favorite caliber is .45 ACP. I don't care about some Glock calibers mainly because the ammo is too expensive and not as readily available ie..357 Sig, 45 GAP, 10MM. There are a lot of variables as to which caliber is better. It all depends on who you're talking to.

    If you've already got two other guns shooting the caliber and using the magazines, then getting the pistol makes sense. Which of the .40 models to get depends on what its purpose will be.

    @Harley:

    The G23 would indeed be a good choice, the '27 for concealability (but somewhat snappier "felt" recoil due to smaller grip), and would complement your collection. Down the road, regardless of which one you get, you could purchase a barrel conversion and be able to shoot cheaper 9mm ammo thru it. Added flexibility of caliber.

    Your choice of caliber is really your choice, your personal perference. A well-shot 9mm will outperform a poorly-shot .40SW or .45, so caliber should not be the single deciding factor in a gun purchase, except in your case it compliments your collection, simplifying your ammunition needs. What matters most is how well you can shoot it, and how comfortable you feel with that cartridge (I would imagine pretty comfortable, given your collection!). Cheers!

    @MikeP: :D

    Thanx that is quite valuable input from u. I think what I need to do is go to the my local gun store and rent one and send a few down range. By the way, its is just for target practice just going out and having a little fun.

    This is a great idea. I put about 300 rounds through a Glock 23 before I decided on it.

    I was dead set on the g22 for months.then I shot the 23 and fell in love with it. But your right the way to go is rent and see what works for you.i ended up buying a 23 with no regrets.but like I say each person is different

    Well I bought the g22 gen3 today without firing it or any other glock. Gun store I went to does not carry glocks to sell or rentto fire in their range. So I went to another and they don't have a range so I just went on and bought it. To the range I go this weekend.
