Yesterday I went to the range with a few buddies. One of them brought his Glock 36 (.45 ACP) for me to shoot. I've been shooting for over ten years and I have never fired a .45. I must say that it shot extremely well. It didn't seem to kick much harder than my Glock 19 with 115 gr 9mm +p+ rounds.
I like the fact that it is a little slimmer than most Glocks and it has a single stack magazine. 6+1 for capacity may seem light next to 15+1 in my G19 and 10+1 in my G27, but with 230 gr .45ACP, 7 rounds should do just fine. Especially with the extra mag. My birthday is coming up soon and I've already dropped hints to the wife. Wish me luck.
