    Yea. Thin, powerful, Glock reliable. I like a .45 ACP. I've got a G30, and after a hot day of lugging the extra rounds of .45 it offers, it makes me think G36. But then, all high capacity handguns get heavy.

    Disadvantage: limited capacity, but you can always carry extra mags (or scoot!). If you need to take on an army of BGs, you need more than any handgun.

    Yes. It's a Glock for one. I don't have a 36, but my 19 and 26 are keepers for sure.

    The only disadvantage is capacity unless you carry extra magazines, but all around easier to carry because of it's size and magazine size. It's a GLOCK it will perform when you need it to.

    Yeah!

    Go for it. No reason not to. It's a Glock after all.

    I don't get this...
    I have a Glock-36 for my EDC, and it's a superb firearm. Most 1911's are only 7 + 1, or 8 + 1...not much of a difference. If you need more than 7 shots in a Wally World parking lot, you've got bigger problems than number of rounds.OMOYMV
    I always have an extra mag unless I'm going to Orlando or Jax, then I take two extra mags.

    I used to feel very similar to you ret. I figured if I needed more then 5 rounds I was already screwed. However after reading the stories (I know they are rare but still..) of guys taking 5,6,9,12 rounds of whatever caliber and still being able to dance a jig while whistling dixie I decided that I prefer carry guns with a capacity of 10 rounds. I look at it like this, Anything worth shooting is worth shooting 5 times. In addition I always wasn't to be able to engage 2 threats so a capacity of 10 rounds makes sense for me. ymmw.

    IMO...best expert on the G36. Contemplated it myself, but my 45ACP carry is outside of Glock for now. No problems with a single stack here. 6, 7, or 8 rounds of 45acp should be more than adequate. Most of it depends on you hitting the target.

    I carry a G36, Mine has been flawless. Its thin, easy to conceal and reliable. Like others have said, if capacity is a concern carry an extra mag.

    I have to admit that reading this thread makes me want a 36...

    Yup, I've got a 36 and it's the only glock I could feel comfortable with. I have had 0 malfunctions sense I bought it and I can actually shoot it better then my 1911 which is really surprising to me. I love my 36! I have 2 extra mags if I feel like carrying extra.

    Interestingly enough, I like my G36 better than my G17 or G26 merely due to the fact it feels better in my hands. I grip it better, it presents better, I shoot it like a dream, and yet, it is darn near the same as a G26. But I prefer the G36. Go figure. Read this thread too:

    I hope this clinches it for you. It is by far the handgun I carry most often.

    I love mine and it is my primary carry gun. I have shot a few thousand rounds thru it and had exactly one failure. That was with an out of spec reload that was too long and did not feed correctly. I carry a spare mag also and don't feel under gunned. Also the gun is more accurate than I am. I say go for it!
