    Need advice on Glock's

    I would value thoughts/advice from the community, especially from the Glock folks.

    I found a company that sells to LEO and Military at reduced rates. As a DV, I qualify :). Based on the prices purchasing Glocks seems like a very good option.

    Not sure I can afford to purchase two at one time. What combination would the community suggest? For example, 19 (HD) and 36 (EDC). Or, 26 (EDC) and 30 (HD).



    Glock 19 9MM Semi-Compact w/Glock Night
    9mm - (3) 15 round mags 4" barrel
    List Price: $455.00 per EACH


    Glock 26 9MM Compact Pistol w/Glock Nigh
    9mm - (2) 10" round mags 3.5" barrel
    List Price: $455.00 per EACH

    Glock 30 .45 Cal Compact Pistol w/Glock
    .45 - (2) 10 round mags 3.75" barrel
    List Price: $521.00 per EACH

    Glock 36 .45 Pistol w/Fixed Sights
    .45 APC - (2) 6 round mags 4.5" barrel
    List Price: $464.00 per EACH


    Not sure if the 30 has Night Sights and the 36 is not listed with Night Sights so it may not be a fair comparison.

    Thanks in advance for the guidance.

    If I were set on buying two, I'd probably buy a 19 and a 26. But, with a proper holster and belt, one can carry a 19 just as easy as a 26. So, I'd probably end up buying a 19, and spending the extra cash on a nice carry rig and ammo.

    I'll give a big +1. My G19 is a great carry gun.

    I'd have to agree with Sixto on this. No need for both. Get the 19 and a nice holster and belt.

    I got a 22 and a 27. The full size 22 is a dream to shoot. I have had a 23 in the past, but the 22 feels much better. It conceals very easily IWB. I added a 27 for summertime carry also.

    I'd choose the 30 for HD and EDC. The 30 also works with the 21's 13 round mags, so you could pick up one of those.

    I would personally go with the Glock 17 and 26 if you were going to buy two glocks. If I was to do it all over again I would go with the Glock 30SF for both HD and CC and buy a few Glock 21 mags for it. I currently CC a glock 27, the Glock 30SF isn't that much bigger than the G27. I think it would be very easy to fill the roll with the Glock 30 as both.

    That's what I did. I just carried my glock half way accross the country and back in comfort and nobody knew,it was there.

    17 and 26. You can use the 17 mags in the 26 if needed.9mm ammo is cheaper so training and practice is cheaper.

    Maybe even a 17 for HD and a 19 for carry.

    I agree with many of the others. The G19 is a great starting place. It is almost the perfect all around 9mm.

    As far as carry goes, the difference between the 19 and 26 is so small I wouldn't even consider it. If at sometime in the future you just have to have a 26, so be it, but the 19 can do the job of EDC very well all by itself.

    If you want to go .45acp, it is hard to beat either of your choices. Some find the G30 a bit too much to get a good grip on, so try it first. The G36 is an excellent carry choice, light and thin and shoots like a dream. The only real down side to it is capacity.

    Good luck!

    I'm a .45 guy, and I can't shoot a 9mm or .40 any better or worse so caliber accuracy isn't an issue. I bought a G30 and have no regrets. One "operator-initated" FTF on the second mag fired, not a single glitch since; clean, dirty or otherwise.

    Advantages:
    10 rounds is more than the 36's six. Size difference is minor (people manage to CC 1911s, so...).
    For additional HD (or CC) firepower, a G21 mag ups the capacity to 13+.
    It's a .45 ACP.

    Disadvantages:
    It gets heavy by the end of the day. 230 grains ammo isn't light. But neither is 15+ rounds of 9mm.
    Fewer rounds than a 19 or 17, but they do sell spare mags.
    Ammo costs a bit more, but I didn't buy a gun based on affordability basis only.

    Night sights are available for the 30, don't know about the 36. I'm not a night sight fan but that's me.

    You have a military ID as a DV? If so, yes, LEO/Mil discount applies.

    My Regular carry is a G30 but the G19 is one of the best all around Glocks. Perfect for HD, carries and conceals well with the proper holster and large enough for fun at the range.

    Your Prices seem a little high to be LEO prices to me. Be sure your dealer is an Authorized Dealer. Compare his prices to Ed's Public Safety to be sure.
    Good Luck
