    Thinking of selling my .40 Glocks

    I own Glocks in just about every caliber. I buy them for "completeness" or to have a matched set or whatever. I used to carry the G27 in .40 but truly do not like that caliber. It is just too much recoil. I would rather either carry a 9mm or .45.

    I am thinking of selling the two Glocks because I really never see myself using this caliber gun. Even if the SHTF, I see 9mm or .45 as more available calibers.

    Thoughts?

    I don't want them.

    I have never really had any affinity for .40 as a caliber. If you don't enjoy shooting them, and don't envision using them in the future, I'd sell them.

    I do not care for the .40 caliber either, sell both and get the 36 (if you don't have one).

    Very true, my Grand Father was fond of saying: "it would be a heck of a world if we all loved the same woman". As for Glocks I have the 27 and 22 both are great for me.

    As for SHTF best to have the ammo before the scenario happens.

    I have never been a huge fan of the .40, but I shot a Glock 22 at the range the other day and I liked it pretty well. If I decide to add a caliber to my stash, it will be a .45 not a .40.

    I think you should love every gun you own for one reason or another. If you don't get rid of it and get something you can't live without.

    (having said this, can't you just use it as a extra piece of hardware for a front door gun, an office gun, a back porch gun, kitchen cabinet, glove box, trunk, bathroom, or tv chair hardware?)

    Have a 27 & 23, great guns! I find I carry the 23 most of the time.

    I've had them and sold them. To me it's the answer to a question I wasn't asking. I know some people like them and that's fine but I look at it this way, If I was limited to FMJ I would want a .45. Since I'm not, I really don't see much of a gain over 9mm. The differences to me are so minimal that I don't see an advantage to it.

    If I knew I didn't like one of my safety devices, I wouldn't want to take it with me and depend on it. I carry only the most confident tool that my life will depend on. And confidence isn't driven solely on caliber.

    If you want capacity, get a 9mm. If you want a large caliber, get a .45.

    If you want both, get a 10mm.

    I have glocks in 9mm and .40 both are great. I can do surgery with the G19 but the G23 is a thumper. Granted the .45 is more fun but I have a Kimber 1911 for that. The .40 is about the "biggest" I wil go in a Glock.

    That being said I "feel" Glocks are supior handguns for concealed carry. That being said I am more than comfortable with any of the 9mm or .40 variants. I have not met a .45 that can compate to the size, capacity and dependabilit of a 27 or 26.

    I have a lot of friends that are cops most of them carry 45s I carry a 9mm on and off duty with the option of a 45 if I want to. I have an XD40 and hate it and had a Kahr K40 and hated it. I could do w/o 40s too.

    "too much recoil?".....no such thing. Recoil is our friend.

    never met a Glock I didn't like. I have them in 9mm, .40, .357SIG and .45, and like all good parents, I try to love them equally.....but the .357SIG is hands down my favorite to shoot. I love the nasty stares from the guys in the stalls next to me at the indoor range. Can you say loud? Oooooh, yeah.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    Ha! The 10mm makes em move away!

    OP, you obviously aren't happy with the 40S&W so dump them. No practical need in keeping something you don't like. Use the money (money already spent on a gun) and buy one you are absolutely infatuated with. I have a Glock 29 I may be selling real soon. I love 10mm, and I only bought it because it is 10mm, not because it's a Glock. After carrying a 1911 I don't want that bulky thing on my hip anymore. I will be using the Glock money to fund another 1911 purchase. Yes, I have a full size 10mm 1911 now, and a 10mm CCO on the way to fill that void. :)

    Buy what you want and get rid of what you don't.
