    Range Report: Glock 36

    Well today was the day to take my new carry gun out for a break in. It was a rainy day, but I went out anyway. It ran perfectly. I ran 150 rounds of FMJ through it. The rain started to get in the mags and I had 1 failure to feed do to a round getting stuck in the mag. After the trip I disassembled and cleaned out the mags to prevent this in the future. I did get 2 stovepipes from limp wristing due to a poor grip. I am actually glad for the issue, because I was teaching shooting skills to my sister and her boyfriend. A quick clear and it went on truckin'.

    As for shootability, its a Glock. Consistent trigger and dead on. I fired a full magazine in less than 2 seconds and every round ended up in a 4 inch grouping a little to the left of center. I polished the trigger connecter and sear so the trigger was nice and smooth. Even my sister was able to make head shots with the hefty .45 in a light package. I took the opportunity to try out my new GoPro Hero3 and made a couple videos.

    A nice first person shooter action of me.

    I am very pleased with the G36. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a hard hitting self defense firearm.

    She didn't like the .45 too much. It was too powerful she said. She did much better with a Taurus PT92 9mm.

    I most certainly will. Especially with the new trigger ;-)

    We did have a good time, even though it was raining like crazy. I kind of liked that it was raining though. The gun and the magazines got real wet at one point and did what Glocks do. It still went bang. I did have 1 instance where a round jammed nose down in the magazine from what I can only assume was due to the wet and powder residue. When I cleaned the pistol later that night, I cleaned out the magazines too to ensure they won't do that again.

    How is the grip on the 36 compared to the 21 and 30? I have found the 21 and 30 to be too large for my hands unless I go with the SF model.

    The G36 has a much slimmer grip since it is a single stack. Much easier to conceal as well.

    That was one of the reasons for the G36. It is much easier to hold. It is thinner so I can get a good grip and reach the trigger. I can't on the full size models.

    That's right, I forgot it was a single stack. On a side note, I got my paws on a G30S the other day and it felt pretty darn good.

    The G30S is suppose to feel pretty nice. Haven't seen one yet. I carry a 30/36 hybrid and I trim and texture all of my Glocks so mine is probably very close to the SF size frame of the 30S.

    I really wish Glock would expand the Slimline series. I would like to see a sub-compact 9mm and a .45 a little bigger than the 36. Like a 4 inch barrel and holds 8 rounds.
