    It's just a matter of time until we see you posting threads like, " I loved my 36, but the Glock( ), is really so much ( ), and I like the way it ( )....". Lol

    They multiply, and for different reasons.

    I am glad that you have chosen any Glock. It's the one thing you can't go wrong with.

    I want one too! I am looking to downsize slightly from my G23 and it makes all the sense in the world. G23 for the house, G36 for the person!

    The g36 also handles the round very well too. I still haven't developed near the accuracy with mine that I have with my xd40sc, but I do like it. Just need more range time.

    some times it does. I have a Fobus paddle that holds both nicely and a combo IWB/OWB custom holster that fits both. The Glock sport combat holster requires two different sizes for the 19 and the 36. My custom Garrett Silent Thunder Champion STX only works for the G36 unless I back the tensioning screws way way out. You really probably have to try it to see how the fit and retention is for each gun.

    True, the G36 is nice, but I chose the G30sf also: only 4mm bigger or 1 bullet per millimeter. :) Seems fair.

    Has anyone put together a "Recon Hybrid" with their Glock 36 and 30?

    I have a G23 and G30SF. I LOVE them both. I wanted a BUG and considered the G36, but when I saw the new 9mm S&W Shield, I HAD to have it! However, as much as I wanted the Shield, I actually felt a little guilty for buying a "non Glock" pistol, but the Shield has a longer backstrap that really appealed to me. Plus, since it's my BUG, I felt comfortable getting a 9mm. Enjoy your G36...it's a GREAT little gun that makes great big holes!
    Pistols: Glock 21SF, 30SF, 36, Colt 1911 Govt. (all .45 ACP), S&W M&P Shield (9 mm), S&W M&P (.22)
    Revolvers: Ruger SP 101 (.357mag/.38SP), Taurus Judge (.410 Gauge/.45 LC)
    Long guns: Daniel Defense AR15s, M4V4 and M4V5 (both 5.56), Mossberg Shotguns (400 and 500, both 12G), Ruger (.22LR)

    I tried to talk myself into the 30 over the 36 cause of the capacity but it felt so much thicker in my hand and figured the 36 would conceal better.

    That problem (thicker feel in the hand), is solved with the G30SF...it has a smaller backstrap. But you're right, the G36 will definitely conceal better. I have a G30SF, but found it a little bulky, which is why I got the G23 for my primary.

    "Only in a general way. It will "fit" but unless it is a simple one-size-fits-all holster, there will some play. The G19 & G36 are close in size, but not exact. A holster specifically molded for the G36 would be best."

    Suggest you contact: Theisholsters.com | Home | Custom IWB Holsters

    Mine is a perfect fit for a 36 and very comfortable.

    45 ACP is a great round. Sure its capacity is only 7, but I'm very accurate to 25 yards on an 8" plate with it. It is slim and does the job. I have many Glocks, though. It's usually a G36 or 27, for warmer months for me. I like my 23 but its longer grip makes it just a tad too long for carry if the Weather is hot.

    I sure am glad there are people like you. If not Alaska would have no one living there and there would be no more Glock 19's left for people like me....
    Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
