    I don't have a Glock 36, or a .45 for that matter. I'm a new convert to the pleasures of the .45 over the 9mm/.40 and am on a crusade to find the best single stack concealed carry .45 out there. I've now fondled and researched the G36, Springfield XDs, Kahr CW45/P45, Kahr PM45. Of all of them I was quite smitten by the CW45/P45. As I'm sure you're well aware the CW and P line from Kahr are, by all practical standards, the same gun with the CW being significantly less expensive. Kahr has one of the top three triggers in a polymer frame handgun (the other two of the trio being the Walther PPQ and the Springfield XDm line; neither are single stack) on the market right now in my opinion. The CW45/P45 is also the slimmest you can get in a .45 with +P capabilities. Just thought I'd suggest what I've been looking into lately. I'll probably have one of those in a PJ IWB holster by the end of the month. I can't argue the immensely positive reputation of the Glock (I'm buying my wife a G19 for home defense in August) but they have yet to release truly slimmed out single stacks in my mind.

    My nephew picked up a G36 some time back and we took it to the range. We both agreed it was one of the most unpleasant shooting handguns either of us had ever shot. My nephew sold it the following week. He's now packing a M&P 9c and I'm still toting a 1911.

    Glock 36 comments

    I bought a Glock 36 about 4 months ago because I saw it for sale used in a gun store at a very attractive price. I have been shooting various .45s for about 25 years and own a number of them, including 1911s and Sigs. I also owned two Glocks, in 9mm and .40.

    Thus far I have put about 500 rounds through the Glock 36, and like the gun very much. It has been reliable and quite accurate thus far. It has fairly healthy recoil, probably because of its light weight, but I don't think the recoil is a problem. It fits my hand well and is quite concealable because of its thin profile and short grip. It happens to fit perfectly in a holster I already owned, so I have carried it a few times. I had already carried two other small 45s in the past, a Sig P245 and a Colt Defender, and the Glock 36 is of similar size, but lighter in weight. I would recommend the gun for carry purposes if you like 45 caliber and are not hung up on high capacity magazines.

    I shot a G36 on Sunday and was pretty impressed with the performance. The recoil wasn't nearly as bad as I expected and I fired some respectable groups. That said, I am pretty sure I would opt for a G30, as the only difference in the specs on those two weapons is the 1.30" width on the 30 versus the 1.14" width on the 36. For that trade off I would take the 4 extra rounds.

    It's my favorite carry gun. It shoots soft and the recoil is entirely controlable. It is accurate, fun to shoot and it's a GLOCK. I like the extended magazines for my pocket and carry 6 + 1 in the gun. It fits my hand beautifully (as does my G19). I got it from a friend who accepted my Kahr PM9 in trade. I got the much better deal.

    The GLOCK 36. Go for it. It's the only Glock model handgun that I own & it has proved itself to be typical Glock reliable.

    I EDC my G 36. Enough said, except if I had a hankerin' I might go for a 1911.

    The Glock-36 is my EDC and the best of my Glock 'collection'.
    After carrying my Glock-36, finishing a point shooting course with it, I sold three Kimbers and began enlarging my Glock collection.
    You WILL love the '36'.

    I don't have a G-36 but I do have a G-30SF which is very similar in size but a double stack, and it is the easiest shooting .45 I have ever fired, and that includes 1911's going back to the 60's. I also have a G-26 which is the best shooting .9mm I have yet to fire. I have many other prettier .45's & .9mm's so why do I always end up with my Glocks? Maybe I'll find out after I get my next one.

    I actually did this not but just 3 weeks ago. I already had a G26 and the 36 fits into the CBST holster already and is almost the exact same size. I love the thing and wouldn't get rid of it. I'm by no means a Glock FanBoi but they make very good firearms that are ugly but work.

    I wanted something that was a .45 but lighter than that 1911A1 and was easier to conceal. This fit that bill perfectly.

    I own a g36 and a g19
    I actually shoot more accurately with the g36. my hands are what I would
    Consider normal sized and the g36 fits like a glove.

    To me, the 36 seems somewhat lighter than the 19 when both
    Are fully loaded and you have been carrying all day.

    I dont think you will regret going with it.

    i got a g36. it is one of the best guns going. i never had any problems with it. i don't carry it, it is one of my range guns. i carry a g23 on and off duty. the size different between the two is not much and i get more rounds with the g23.

    My G36 is my every day carry piece. Shoots great. Accurate and easy to control and easy to conceal. I would not trade it.
